The tendency of the Overdog mind is to reverse everything. Power (their own) becomes weakness, and weakness power, or at least a threat.
Regarding the established publishing world, they insist, "You don't understand it." What they're really saying is, "We exist behind Kremlin walls and you can't understand it."
But the walls don't prevent me from examining them. They're on the wrong end of a one-way glass. They can't see out, so they think I can't see in. Their walls narrow and enclose their own viewpoint.
