What do you disagree with on this flowchart?

I sometimes have a really hard time understanding exactly where I disagree (if I do disagree) with people regarding evidence-based policy. Kirsty Newman, for example, has some posts about how a nuanced view of evidence-based policy is necessary. Many people actually prefer the idea of evidence-informed policies and others still – Bill Easterly is a prominent example – think that experts are actually tyrants. Being myself an enthusiast of evidence-based policy, I came up with this flowchart which translates my understanding of how things should be. Being not completely sure about what the more nuanced view is, I am very curious to understand where people differ.
