I know what you mean, however what I think is that there are few disemployed
people who hang glide, or go to Burning Man, or become part of Zubrin's space
organization. Its is (I contend) people with pocket change and time on their
hands who would seek the thrills of outer space. Whatever the world has
become, it is not Islanders setting off in longboats as centuries ago, or
Nick O'reilly setting off from fair, but starved-out, Ireland and move to the
USA. Takes bucks and leisure.
