Every country has a right and does have separate joining requirements.
British Scouting is not chartered to parliament (the governing body of the
country) BSA is ! May or may not be the difference, however, comparing
Scouting programs country by country and asking that they all be exactly
alike is rather foolish, I submit -- even Baden-Powell stated that that
would not work --
Scouting is to build active citizens for their own country -- keep this
in mind, everyone --- it is a basic ideal and goal of our entire program,
and sometimes it looks like our leaders do lose sight of the basic reasons
of why we are here and what we are to accomplish --
p.s. These 1/2 days are a pain --- have to leave now -- doctor's orders --
more next week.
