    • It isn't happening now, so lets move forward and work with our current options and stop making noise when not necessary.  Be happy that for the moment, not all the doom and gloom is in motion.  Certainly stepping, if slowly, in a better direction.  
    • Note the key words:  "at this time".
    • For now. BSA does not have a good track record IMHO of following through on their promises.
    • The NEC [National Executive Committee] also agreed that the following three recommendations will not be considered at this time: Combining Sea Scouting into Exploring, Ending all youth programs at the age of 18, and Sunsetting the Learning for Life curriculum
    • His 2009 dissertation: (free ) . Very interesting read on James West, James Beard (zingers), patrol method, the Interracial Service, BSA early history, immigrants, minorities, urban vs rural, conservation/animal rights vs pioneering/scoutcraft...Good stuff. https://escholarship.org/content/qt6s56c7cg/qt6s56c7cg_noSplash_adb0c60e663dce67efa6513d5571baa4.pdf Subsequent book (2016?): Modern Manhood and the Boy Scouts of America In this illuminating look at gender and Scouting in the United States, Benjamin René Jordan examines how in its founding and early rise, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) integrated traditional Victorian manhood with modern, corporate-industrial values and skills. While showing how the BSA Americanized the original British Scouting program, Jordan finds that the organization’s community-based activities signaled a shift in men’s social norms, away from rugged agricultural individualism or martial primitivism and toward productive employment in offices and factories, stressing scientific cooperation and a pragmatic approach to the responsibilities of citizenship. By examining the BSA’s national reach and influence, Jordan demonstrates surprising ethnic diversity and religious inclusiveness in the organization's founding decades. For example, Scouting officials’ preferred urban Catholic and Jewish working-class immigrants and "modernizable" African Americans and Native Americans over rural whites and other traditional farmers, who were seen as too "backward" to lead an increasingly urban-industrial society. In looking at the revered organization’s past, Jordan finds that Scouting helped to broaden mainstream American manhood by modernizing traditional Victorian values to better suit a changing nation. https://uncpress.org/book/9781469627663/modern-manhood-and-the-boy-scouts-of-america/ https://flexpub.com/preview/modern-manhood-and-the-boy-scouts-of-america
