‘Appeal to Authority’ is not going away anytime soon. We all know a cultist who refused to think because “you’re not an immunologist”. We also know that getting such people to reflect on the ‘appeal to authority fallacy’ fails at the first syllable. We who would draw attention to or resist the global regression of civilization into techno feudalism are therefore at a severe disadvantage, as there are precious few ‘authorities’ who are not actively enslaving us, killing us, or worse.
A week of honest operating? That's being optimistic - I give it to Tuesday morning tea break after the lobbyists come bearing gifts.

Why silence cannot solve corruption:
"A veces, callarse equivale a mentir. Porque el silencio puede ser interpretado como aquiescencia."
"At times being quiet is equivalent to lying because the silence may be interpreted as acquiescence."
—Miguel de Unamuno
