All of the above. The flakes and cons have to be weeded out. Several Osages would have lived a lot longer had they been more suspicious of white men who "loved" them. Any discerning group will test initiates before admitting them. Some will be rejected immediately, some later (with mocking or worse). Some will be admitted but not without repeated test and trial. This is how it must be.
This is a good idea.
Where do I sign up?
" We beseech and demand... that you accept the Church and the Superior Organization of the whole world and recognize the supreme Pontiff, called the Pope, and that in his name you acknowledge the King and Queen... his representatives, as the lords and superior authorities of these islands and main lands...
If you do not do this, or resort maliciously to delay, we warn you that, with the aid of God, we will enter your land against you with force and will make war in every place and by every means we can and are able, and we will then subject you to the yoke and authority of the church and of their Highnesses.
We will take you and your wives and children and make them slaves...
And we will take your property and will do you all the harm and evil we can..."

--The Requerimiento (read by Spanish Conquistadors to the people of the "New World" )
