True.

But, the fundamental problem is that PKI, in general, is broken
and not really securely operational.

What you are seeing is desperate attempts to defend PKI by
believers in.

Of course, you can't expect religious statements technically
correct. But, it is hard, if not impossible, to convince believers
in of the technical reality, if a religion has decades of history
with a lot of believers in.

The believers in are well trained not to admit some technical
problems and won't accept proposals to solve the problems,
because they know the proposals cause other problems.
