Interesting mindset: everybody else disagrees with me, therefore everybody else is wrong.

Although there are well known exceptions where such mindset has turned an industry or scientific field upside down, 99.99x% of the time, it comes from a range of people from the one who is very good but does not grasp a particular aspect, down to the complete crackpot.

Perhaps you are an exception. I would like to hear more about the problems and your ideas how to fix them, if you would spare the time. (I assume that "everyone stop what you're doing" is not actually your proposal!)
