The other lesson to be drawn from recent political events and applied to science careers is not to let toxic personalities drive the ship.
Yes this means not giving them control over anything that is really important.
But it also means not letting them control you to the extent you are reacting to them, more than doing your thing.
It applies to grant and paper revisions. It applies to the science you do, how you do it and who you choose to work with.
It means you need to wall the toxic actors off in their own little silo, only dealing with them at need or desire.
