I realize everyone is tickled to death to share their vast knowledge/views
about the Constitution, history of democracy, need/futility in being armed,
etc. , but before we continue this line of thought (ad nauseum) please
consider that Boy Scouts exists under many forms of government and many
laws. So, the laws of any one country are almost inconsequential to a
discussion of Boy Scouts (that is why we are here, right?)
BSs does have in common a values based program that has many aspects. We
could be discussing them!
How about a debate on retaining older boys, what are the common factors of
boys who make eagle - who is more influential there - the boy, the troop or
the family? How about how do we keep those first year kids in for the whole
year - seems to be the biggest single drop out time. Maybe what are your
observations re: parent involvement and boy achievement?
Come on! Comments re: non-direct Scout issues should be sent privately to
one another or you should jump to one of those lovely, polite
rec.constitution -type places.
