Scouting is becoming like a Freemasonry ; it is something kids do in the
total secret of a scout hall, where they don elaborate uniforms, perform
peculiar rites and ceremonies....
We need to offer scouts and leaders the option of a simple non-badged
'uniform' that they can wear for just about everything and everywhere....

Doesn't that rather spoil the whole idea?
