Why do so called experts obtain respect when the majority of their work is derivative?

Derivative: Copied or adapted from others; a highly derivative prose style.


is it that people believe if they know more than me they must be smart.



Doctors, lawyers, politicians etc etc


It is easy to ape someone else, but a true expert can be creative and expand upon the current work they do to improve the environment they are in. Not just follow the norm.

for example bitcoin

Because it takes time and a lot of work to become an expert...

Sometimes you'll find as well that the people they're copying from are stuck in the past and refuse to adapt or create something new and that happens a LOT these days and the newer bunch just come along and changes everything because they acknowledge what the problem is, that's how civilisation progresses, obviously there will be fakes out there but when someone is a genuine expert they've usually earned it.

yeah find that alot these days experts not recognising the problem

partly due to the advantages they gain from the current process and anything that challenges this brings them fear.
