More Peer Review - More Garbage

The only thing wrong with peer review is the way it is applied.  If I write 
something, it must be peer reviewed before it can be published or probably 
even read.  This process does not allow for the new, the unusual, the 
non-scientist discoverer, to be widely read or even discussed.  The process 
itself limits the field.
I say again, peer review is not wrong.  It is only in the way it is applied.
