25 German dentists?
25 German refrigerator repairmen?

Whether or not these particular academics are right or wrong, why should
it be distressing that academics address the public more -- and may have
more influence in (western) societies -- than carpenters, bus drivers
and refrigerator repairmen? (I may be elitist in this, but I wish
academics in general had more influence -- in fact half as much as media
folk would be an improvement.)
