Fred, I know from what I heard at the workshops I attended, and from others I've spoken with, that one problem seems to be the lack of trust in organizations. The leaders of these groups (many times the larger organization rather than the local ones) are out of touch with the needs of the members and are interested only in controlling them and continuing to build their own fiefdoms. Most individuals see that and shy away from committing to it. In addition, the younger people stay connected in a much more distant fashion, via social media (though I don't know how you could call it social if you aren't physically present to each other), texting, etc. The old games of fear don't play with that crowd, and I think they are increasingly not playing with the older crowd, either. I don't know what the answer is, but it lies in understanding how to be relevant to each other in today's world, a world much different than it was 50 years ago.
