Probably connected to the Rhetors, who grew out of Procian lines of thinking. On Arbre, this may connect to poorly defined fears of Polycosmic Manipulation, but the name also suggests distrust of people who are especially skilled at speaking, which might connect to a "Slick Talker Stereotype" on Earth. More likely connected to the Platonic view of Sophists. Socrates, during his trial, was accused by a group of people with this attitude towards him, claiming he had corrupted the youth and taugh them to "make the weaker argument the stronger."
