What is it exactly you think that the attendees do with their time, money and resources? Do they not have friends and associates in their fields of occupation and interest as well as social circles, even the ones whose influence may not be what you would deem of merit? Even if I presume they are not actively ruling the world, as is being put forward here, then, is it not safe to assume they mentor, influence and fund those who do. It would be like a typical family. The elders may not be out doing what the young ones are doing, but, they certainly helped develop them into the individuals they have become and often have contributed their time, money and resources to their way of thinking and success. Oftentimes, these elders are not retired and continue on in their businesses and the ones who are retired may find other endeavors to engage in. My grandfather may have only had the friends, associates, influence and resources to help in a limited way in his profession and community, but, he still got a lot done. And, in his limited sphere of occupation, he affected what was done and even, sometimes, the way in which it was done. Had he the influence, resources and friends that many of the BB attendees have, you can bet he'd of accomplished a lot more in the community and beyond. You are believing that to be true which cannot be true, that the attendees have no ability to shape their communities and the world at large.edit on 5-6-2013 by PhyberDragon1 because: reworded
