I was going to say something of the kind (I think I was thinking of the
word "practice" :) )... but I'll essay a serious response.

Anders--I can think of two possible meanings for your utterance.
Before I try to reply, did you mean "I wonder how they become (or stay)
stupid or irrational"? Or did you mean "I wonder how they wind up
holding the positions/power/occupations/influence they do"?

Or were you just blowing off steam, and I should be quiet?
