Officer fragging is the single most effective instance of direct action in american history and is responsible for ending the draft. The dumb nephews of officers who found grenade pins on their pillow have never forgiven the american people for this.

lol a bunch of people who've never had to do a single days proper work in their lives saying young people should do national service because thats how to fix america

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/01/opinion/us-national-service-draft.html?referringSource=articleShare

"Many aging Vietnam-era veterans attest to the sense of community that came with either involuntary military service or the alternative service routes that those who refused the draft opted for."

jesus loving christ

"The martial virtues of “intrepidity, contempt of softness, surrender of private interest, obedience to command” — the backbone of a strong nation, in his view — can be achieved through civic works."

so this is just straight up reactionary garbage

South Koreans know how to do a proper riot because almost all of them have military training and the police are largely made up of people who did that for conscription instead

whatever marginal advantage the racial justice protestors gained from being masked was greatly outweighed by the fact that the racial justice protests were larger than the covid protests by a scale or two of magnitude

i checked out that essay they cite as their case for national service

it's a pre-WWI screed about how war is necessary for humans to reach their full potential, and that strife and conflict are necessary to provide the motivation for humans to engage in unpleasant labor without silly and unrealistic things like "high wages" or "decent working conditions"

it's a very late-Victorian piece claiming that although war is horrible and awful, only harsh military discipline or a deeply patriotic fervor are capable of motivating people to contribute to society, so pacifists need to push for an entity that emulates the virtues of militarist culture in order to prevent the inferior classes from degenerating and stimulate the spiritual energies of the nation

lol that the NYT is citing that with only a brief note about how the essay's focus on "manly virtues" and its constant railing against "cosmopolitan industrialism" is outdated
