Then maybe the board makeup should be changed to be equally reflective of
the desires of the membership, maybe some industry leaders who represents
new blood (taken from this pool of peasants [your words, not mine], listed
in alphabetical order) like Karl Denninger, Avi Freedman, Justin Newton,
Robert Shearing, Ronald Yokubaitis,  plus an unnamed economist and an open
market specialist, ... 

Would the addition of a few of these [peasants] or equally qualified other
[peasants] make the board more balanced?
