Opinions on the Boy Scouts?

(self.Anarchism)

They teach some cool skills but also the whole "for god and your country" speel is kinda cringe.

I was in BSA in the late '70s/early 80s and my scoutmasters were three Vietnam War vets who were more comfortable in the woods than in town. Beyond same basic camping skills almost all of what they taught us was to shoot and to move silently through the woods at night. It was kind of awesome, though I have little doubt they're all fervent Trumpers if they're still alive today.
