Here is the idea as put forward by the book "The web of Life" by Fritjof Capra for human power balance and it describes the power balances that people are doing nowadays from the middle ages. With the additional motions of people and how science was made. There are hundreds of ideas on biology to most other sciences including cybernetics. The represented idea came from.This means the government representatives and writers are using the ideas of unseen people that they serve by being officials and the unseen people sometimes get overlooked enough to cause disgruntlement. When disgruntlement shows itself, they give credit to them for thier achievement by payment of favor yet this does only to restart the cycle.
For when the cycle restarts then people either get a new chance to give the information or simply refuse because when asked, they werent given credit or they go by pride. Out of pride there is few choices, but not help out or break down and reconsider. What most people find today is the persitency of refusal and the reaction of stealing from peoples reaction to others responses that causes pain. This is what most scientists do sometimes as they "borrow" the material for developement of thier ideas and give credit later. Through solipsism or over-assertion of the self; nor less, leading to humans being treated as mere objects groups.
