This is an assault on reason and skepticism. Faiths flourish because of this, a massive underplay of the importance of skepticism. This underplay has an impact on the reasoning ability of the general population. (This is like being against vaccines, there would be more sickness. With this “believe what we tell you about the supernatural” stuff, the kids skeptical immunity system is left confused and weak)
As a consequence of this assault, people do not need to work hard to be (like you said) ”a CEO” so that they can succeed as a criminal. Being a snake oil salseman is made easy. They need not even think their snake oil is of advantage to themselves; many advocates of homeopathy have had their sense of skepticism so annihillated that they may think their advocacy is helping people when it clearly isn’t.
