Specialist Tyranny

There is a specialty of medicine that works by analysing hair samples. Imagine this group of physicians became so powerful that they were seen as the only serious form of medicine and that they gained the exclusive ear of governments on all matters of health care. They would become enemies of health, where previously they were helpful. A similar thing has happened with economists and businessmen. We are ignoring the health and sustainability of our planet because of their highly-specialised way of looking at the world.
