People who are 'experts' regardless of how badly they have screwed things up, should be trusted and put in charge and people who are successful should not be considered as a source of wisdom

The folks who did not do that and prospered while it was going on, MUST BE SHUNNED. The folks who did it? Heck they went to school for years to screw things up, so there's our solution.
