-= The YPP rules and tour permit regulations are designed to protect YOU as th
-= leader and the BSA from litigation. In our modern day litigious society,
-= this protection is important.
If these were to protect the leader, the leader could far more
efficiently implement them as he (or she) chooses.
Au contraire, their _imposition_ by the BSA is to protect BSA Inc.,
pure and simple. Their only practical effect is to allow the BSA
to wash its hands of damages and leave those leaders not following
these absurdly onerous set of doctrines fully exposed -- and
completely on his/her own -- with respect to lawsuits. Remember,
in conjunction with this, that any BSA leader even accused is
automatically kicked out of the association pending his/her ability
to clear him/her-self on his/her own efforts and at his/her own
expense. Wachet auf!
If the French, English and German don't get through to you, I don't
know how else to say it, although a bit of Russian can't help but
occur to me: yeboot e fameleyu ne sprashevayoot -- after all, that
_is_ the language of the other great central management bureau of
recent vintage; you know, the other ones claiming that everything
they did was for the good of the people...
