However, I am not so sure there is no intellectual dishonesty in mainstream academia. I am convinced there is much of it.
Yes, there is _some_ but it's not noticeably worse than in any other domain of human organised activity. So it's a question of the order of magnitude, and the order of magnitude of what's happening in the academia (science and math  I'm leaving all the "soft departments" aside as I believe those ones most definitely DO have a problem) is not IMHO anywhere near anything that would justify the phrase "huge corruption".

Yes, that was debated a lot. Mathematics normally uses Boolean logic, other systems were investigated motivated by certain paradoxical consequences or experiments (quantum mechanics).
