Some haven't even stepped on the first rung.
Would be interested if anyone knows of a single formerly tenured Prof ( someone with a PhD for starters) sacked for publishing 'speculative History' materials.

That's the thing. They filter out people with dangerous ideas don't they? A lot of it is automatic since a thinking person will more likely want nothing to do with a system that pressures them to conform.
