Why do it?

"Well hidden from the pepper sprayers of largely anonymous manipulators. Just one of the many advantages to our style of strategic communication.

"Yet the whole while completely open, in plain site, public."

The popular notion is that the solution is unknowable because of complexity. Though evidence suggests we are now able to manage such complexity, there are well healed interests that want to perpetuate the illusion that discovering what is inside the black box is futile.

Not at all unlike Skinner's rationale for behaviorism. There are still those who cling to the view even though more successful models have been discovered and applied.
