Important Read!!! Fantastic Nassim Taleb Aphorism

The best way to strengthen something is to complain about it. Complaining about bankers, politicians, Harvard, etc., is signaling their robustness: everyone complains yet they are still there, so there has to be something to their existence. 
People need to see action, not complaint. Instead you need to move, do something, establish competing circuits to harm their directly (MOOC, classes on nonacademic risk management, or call for some kind of punishment (preferably legal, like sue the Nobel), then people will join you after they start seeing blood.

-- Nassim Taleb
