Why are there still liturgically minded people defending the Novus Ordo or promoting its “redemption” through Ratzingerian improvements?
Only now are some younger men becoming bishops; thus we see examples like Thomas Daly or Alexander Sample, both of whom sponsored liturgical conferences, which I think are aimed at an enrichment of both forms of the Roman rite. There are also probably many bishops like Joseph Strickland, who prefer the OF but allow their priests to study and celebrate the EF, and perhaps introduce some enrichment into the OF. But many dioceses still have the old guard in positions of power, though many have retired in recent years and will continue to retire, while others have the next generation of "progressives" in charge. So, ask the question again in 5 years, and maybe things won't seem so bleak, at least with respect to liturgical praxis.
Let's break down the second claim.
This is the "pisteuo" Πιστεύο pblm.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) May 3, 2020
Credere does not mean epistemic belief, but trust, which I defined as "pisteic", a kind of doxastic committment . From the Nicene credo: "Πιστεύομεν εἰς ἕνα Θεὸν"
In Engligh, "belief" ~beloved.
Note: δόξα = belief, gift, & glorification. https://t.co/qZYuRKfKPz
2/ In Semitic lang., "Amen" means "trust", not epistemic belief, so professions of faith state trust.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) May 3, 2020
The Syriac credo is "mhayminan 7ad aloho" = "WE TRUST only one god". (not "I" since; is no Nicene creed for non Greek-Orthodox/Cath)

3) The pisteuo pbm is the reason first-order atheists a la Dawkins & religious people talk past one another: simply religious beliefs never claimed to be epistemic that is, belief in the scientific sense.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) May 3, 2020
You need to remove verbalism & labels to understand what something means.
"Lord Jesus Christ": adoration/doxology/praise/benediction
"Son of the Living God": adoration/doxology/praise/benediction
"have mercy on me": petition
"a sinner": contrition
The only aspect that seems to be missing would be thanksgiving, but it may be implicit in the first two, an acknowledgement of what God has done for us that is joined with thanksgiving in the spirit.
I would argue that all 4 aspects can be implicit in the Most Holy Name of our Savior, the simplest form of the Jesus Prayer which is His name itself. A cry to our Lord should be a cry for His Mercy, an expression of our humility and recognition of our sinfulness.
