One has to wonder if removing any load bearing assumptions will completely destroy our apple carts.
Personally I believe that superstition is a wildly destructive force that damages all aspects of modern life and brings us things like the corona virus because population densities just keep increasing as governments have done nothing to impede vectors for disease. Nobody is responsible because of our superstitions that results are determined by blind chance and that education is the only thing that improves someone's odds of having good results. We are led by the blind and incompetent because only Peers and the well educated know anything at all. Nobody even noticed that the same schools that have failed the great unwashed masses were attended by Peers.
The baby boomers railed against the status quo until they got a piece of it and now for the first time in history it has been enshrined by those same individuals.
I don't think any specific apple cart is any more important than the others but this one that has the great unwashed masses dragging stones into huge piles for their betters certainly is more fundamental than most. Nobody wants to lose the toiling masses and salt of the earth for slaves and certainly not because of any losers on the internet.
Why can't they even accept the obvious that stones were pulled straight up the sides of five step pyramids? Ask yourself whose apple cart is getting gored here.
