comment Minima and maxima of the 6th degree polynomial are not expressible in radicals.
Are you expecting to "show the Abel-Ruffini theorem in just one special case" without showing it in full generality ? This would probably amount to a significantly simpler proof of Abel-Ruffini than all those currently known.

@wythagoras (1) Sorry, my bad. I dont understand your point (2) though. It would seem from your original question that you want neither the Abel-Ruffini theorem nor Galois theory.

Proving something algebraic is not expressible in radicals without using Galois theory ???? I'm quite skeptical about that.

This is probably the most elementary solution. Very nice
