Re: Poll: How necessary are organizations in aikido?

An organization is like a family name, a company name, a trademark, an attempt to give something reliability, or to create some type of stability. It is also a type of human grasping, an attempt to "keep things the way they always were..." right in the middle of change and adaptability. It is like a vow, even though you vow the impossible; still, you want to try.
