Snail, old chap, this is futile. You can't accept that anyone who is of the folk world can have an opinion which differs from yours, and any dissenting view is merely prejudice.
I'm afraid you simply don't or won't get it. Meanwhile the number of clubs is falling, the average age of punters is rising and a good proportion of the world which has an interest in folk wouldn't be seen dead in one - which is a shame because, as I said earlier, clubs could be a terrific nursery for young talent.
It's a bit like the mainstream CofE; dwindling away as parishioners die off and being sidelined while the evangelicals and the charismatics prosper, to say nothing of other faiths and the great mass of atheists and agnostics growing in numbers.
To mangle metaphors, old mollusc, you're being an ostrich, and one day you'll be a dodo.
