Re: Poll: How strong of an existence will aikido have in a hundred years?

There's a certain amount of logic to what you are saying Jon. I sometimes think that way about music. I have lived long enough to have seen many musical styles go by. When I think of the original Beatles music and some of their imitators in the 60's and then I listen to what is on MTV and other programs today, I realize that we have let human creativity not only morph the style and the words but now, we have even a form of "music" where you don't even have to be able to sing at all and you can still be rich!
Who would have thought!
I notice a negative tone, am I right? I agree with you but not entirely. Some changes are positive. Evolution is good. And a lot of modern music is good, too. What kind of music were you talking about? I think the question here is, do we want Aikido to evolve, even if it is a positive change, or do we love it so much the way it is, that we don't want it to change?
