Several years ago, I posted a msg in the same vein when no young leadership
was on the horizon anywhere. Upcoming organizations and movements always are
led by young or middle aged leaders and never by octogenarians. Octogenrian
ideas and visions have never been revolutionary, even though they may be
imagining or day dreaming. More likely such octogernian ideas will run the
orgn into a deep hole. Even looking back, the orgn has been on maintenance
mode with decreasing (in %) membership and old (wise) people leading it.
