David, I did read your post completely. Perhaps you have concluded from mine that I am disagreeing with yours. Not true. I agree and support your views.
It is the general idea I often hear tossed about by others (not yourself) that we are doomed to lose the fundamental teachings of O'Sensei as time goes by that I take issue with. That will only happen if we as students don't diligently search for that knowledge in the variety of places it can be found.
Sorry if I sounded as though I was critical of YOUR views. I am only bristling at the suggestion that ignorance is somehow the inevitable result of the passage of time. History does not support that. My apologies if you took offense.
