Where this county would be is the United States of America. The USA was
founded on ignoring a rule. "No Taxation without representation!"
Now we get into the thread of what rules to ignore, what to fight, how to
fight etc. We have been there before and we will never come up with an
answer. Again because we are allowed to have different opinions. However,
I believe a large group would agree one result of Scouting is to teach youth
to make decisions and to make decisions like above. I am not concerned
about how the patch "rule" was ignored as much as I might be concerned about
how the boys interpreted it.

In a larger view, where would this country be if anyone could ignore
rules and regulations as they choose? I realize that this is an extreme
example but ....
