Let's remember that the scout movement begun as a paramilitary movement,
as the society keep changing so we will change, discipline is important,
to have honor, and good values are the basis to go ahead in life.
I've been scout for 13 years and still think some things, have my doubts
and only 1 person can answer my questions, but he's dead now.
There are some things that come to my mind right now, you must learn to
obbey so later you can give orders, you need to learn how to be in a
team and work as a team am I right??
Scout movement teached me this and a lot more
