The Draft Is Fascist:

"But wait. [Noel] Koch has other arguments for the return of conscription. Let's hear him out:

"The draft shattered class distinctions. It mixed high school dropouts with college graduates, rich with middle class and poor.... Class lines blurred and so did racial lines. The military did more to advance the cause of equality in the United States than any other law, institution or movement."

Regardless of what one thinks of this argument, the only proper response is: So? This justifies the state's stealing years of a person's life and maybe his life itself? Does that stuff about unalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence mean nothing? "
