A military elite that also has political power & thinks civilians are decadent. This will not end well.

It's time to bring back the f*cking draft. Maybe then we would think more carefully about how, when and where we choose to engage in combat.

It didn't start particularly well either. And I'm not much looking forward to the middle. Have we reached the middle yet?

Police and military worship are at the core of American fascism. They protect the good people from the brown people.

There is a strong progressive argument for conscription. The end of the draft removed the military--from the broad nat'nl consciousness.

Actually opposition due to widened conscription had a lot to do with ending American involvement in Vietnam.

I thought they got paid to do a job. I don't find military service so altruistic.

True. Should it be a peacetime draft a la Israel with no deferments, men and women, or wartime draft only?

Also, there seems to be a robust component of professional military that might be enough to keep us fighting in places like Niger, Syria...

I'm afraid our society has become militarized enough do that it won't make a difference.

Well that's frigging goofy. Conscription requires political exposure. If we don't have that will to do that, perhaps that's a good thing?
