18. It is essentially a "mutual society" with many branches...
but the core group(roots)are not as numerous as many think. A pruning is taking place as we can see from the many indictments the past couple of years.

Although the "Gardeners" are doing a good job, we should form a "Lumberjack" society to cut it down to size.
