All revved up with no place (worthwhile) to go

Imagine the difference it would make if these people put their energy into the long-term problems of the world (energy, food security, poverty, human rights, corporate malfeasance, and political corruption) instead of the rather simple game of business.
Excerpt: “Apparently none of these friends got the word that Silicon Valley’s best days are behind it. So fervently do they believe in their collective imagination and potential that they routinely invest in one another’s endeavors — $50,000 or $100,000 or $200,000 a pop, creating an informal high-tech investors’ club that serves as a kind of market index of Internet startups. None have to work another day in their lives, yet they still routinely work 60 to 70 hours a week — except those who sheepishly confess to working 80. [….] ‘We are not ready to stop changing the world.'”
Oh, the sadness of human insecurity, from fashion victims to wealth and power addicts. They think they are changing the world, when actually they are just money changers. Glad it’s fun for them. I certainly enjoy my business. But it’s not that important in the overall scheme of things.
