They recruit new members, regulate the promotion of individuals to positions of prominence, and decide on the publication and dissemination of findings. Scientists are not like lawyers or doctors. You do not need a license to practice science. No one can stop you from doing it. On the other hand, if you want access to some of the complex and expensive equipment used in scientific research, or more basically, if you want to be paid a living wage while doing science, then the establishment has the power to decide 'yes' or 'no'.

That is an important part of an establishment. No one has the time to read everything put out by the establishment, even in a small field.
