restore talent - repatriation will provide needed intellectual resources
We have suffered the loss of considerable talent. Former members with
technical, legal, logistical, financial and management ability.
Some have voted with their membership, and not renewed from one year to
the next. How can they be enrolled in a New TRA? What would it take to
make it attractive?
Others have been "invited" to leave for a variety of reasons, many based
in politics and personal grievances or personality clashes.
Let's reinstate all expelled members, unless criminal activity related
to the practice of rocketry has been established. I would put a statute
of limitations on even this, say 3 years unless uncompensated property
damage greater than $10,000 or serious personal injury was involved.
I do not know if any individuals would fail to be repatriated under this
criteria, but the distinction appears to make sense to me.
