There is wide unity of support among the rank and file. Any divisions that occur at the top most level are all driven by personality. That is my experience, having been around for a number of years. With very few exceptions, just about every organization you currently see out there advocating for the registered population started out as an association with NARSOL (formerly RSOL). The “pick up my marbles” phenomenon has balkanized our efforts from the start. And it’s really sad to watch how the pride of folks can get in the way of what is best for all of us. It really breaks your heart. And you have to wonder, if you are a registered person like myself, if some of these folks really give a damn at all. It’s like it becomes about them, and not us.
