I am reminded again of a book titled The Dilemma of Muslim Psychologists, which dilemma was in large part that most of what needed being addressed constituted social taboos. It is similar to the dilemma of economists who see beyond the narrow limits of 'Mainstream Economics' yet still want careers in economics which currently would be undermined by the expression of such views.
