It seems that before talking about these matters, one has to look at the
underlying organization - how it is formed, how individuals become
members, what type of committment they make to the organization (and
what type of committment the organization makes to them), and how
members can remove themselves from the organization.
The structure of a corporation, the military, a non-profit organization,
a school, and the scouts are all very different. Authority,
accountability, and responsibility in each is created, delegated, and
accepted differently. What is true and "obvious" for one, may not have
any bearing on another.
I could go into a long disertation on what "I" think this means in the
scouting world - but will leave that to another time.
Hope this helps.
