The above was strictly with respect to the context of the post in
which it was stated [quoted below] - with respect to superfluous
disruption of the Doing of Work that Needs to be Accomplished if
Humanity is to have a Chance to Survive.
It is =not= with respect to the Doing of Science.
So it does not constitute an 'excuse' from what's in the Doing of
It 'excuses' only those who Choose not to Do Science.
It Honors their Free Wills.
Further discussion is added below.

If folks 'wonder', when one understands the stuff that's beein in AoK
all along, one literally Sees what have been formerly referred to as
I'm working to Teach folks with respect to such be-cause is'd in the
'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization inherent that all of "man's
inhumanity to man" derives.
There's a 'trade-off' inherent in coming to so understand. All
'excuses' with respect to feigned 'ignorance' are "rendered useless".
It's be-cause of the TD E/I(up) inherent in this "rendering useless"
that I am working patiently to guide folks little by little with
respect to their innate capacities to See Truth.
The Fundamental have been in AoK all along.
What's not been in AoK are all of the necessary
experiential-couplings - the necessary examples of how
'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization, left uncomprehended, does,
in fact, Ravage Humanity.
I'm working to supply these. and will continue to do so for as long
as it takes, or until Life goes out of me.
