That's not always true, you just hear about the "powerful" s&b, just like you only hear about powerful Freemasons.
There ARE less well to do S&B members, though they are never poor off, because as with any fraternity, brothers always help eachother out.
However S&B is a foolish system, they have no "beliefs" no ideas.
They are just to help eachother out, and will die out because of it. As anything material does.
Rome fell, but her ideas did not.
S&B is devoid of "ideas". It is a "club" not a society.
Furthermore, S&B alumni don't have much control over the fraternity. They tried to excersise some but the current enrollment proved that they had
little power over them, by re-writing a few of their by-laws the way they wanted to see them.
Fraternities like Freemasonry there is never something like alumni, you always get a vote, and they have an idea, a good one.
Unlike the greed of "S&B".
It'll get them no where.
