#1 The founder of the Boy Scouts had seen the consequences of losing 'natural fieldcraft' by Englishmen in the Boer War and set about to do something about it. Those that war (by any means necessary) against those skills and principles will find themselves hard pressed by the real war they're bringing upon all of us.

#2 Sad end. Too easy a target. Even being sued by the Girl Scouts. I have said before that boys would be better off on their own than vilified by these losers. I enjoyed both worlds. Scouts and freedom to explore. I had many projects and adventures. Because of public school I learned not to expect any support. That included sports. I was always active but never trained. The blacks got all the attention. So oblivious to such bias I was unaffected. What interested me was when I would do better that caused a great deal of anger among the blacks.

#3 Our culture is sick, infected with self-hatred: hatred for our sons and our fathers, hatred for our history and our institutions, hatred for our civilization and its achievements.

This fever will not break without a serious shock to the patient.

We are living through a period of collective madness that will only come to an end when there is a traumatic, probably violent, series of episodes.

You Americans are such optimists: I'm not being facetious - civilizations rarely come back from the brink.

#5 If you want to make an omelet, you must crack a few eggs. Boy Scouts, churches, schools...
