“It’s time to bring the country together,” says Rep. John Delaney (D-Maryland), aspiring to be our next commandeer-in-chief, “restore our sense of shared purpose and a common and inclusive national destiny.” How?  Forcibly: “John Delaney’s Plan for National Service” states that “Every American will complete a minimum of one year

Of Honor and Horror

Last week, when the public relations wing of the U.S. Army asked, on Twitter, “how has serving impacted you?” the bulk of the responses were not what was hoped for. What came like tear drops and bursts of rage were thousands of horrific tales, expressions of sorrow, bitterness and despair.

Hypothetical Cowardice?

We must treat real threats realistically.  But what to do with bizarrely hypothetical ones? Last week, former Congressman Joe Heck (R-Nev.), chairman of the National Commission on Military, National and Public Service, addressed witnesses at a hearing in Washington: “So I want to pose a hypothetical scenario and ask your

No Need

“So, my bottom line is there is no need to continue to register people for a draft that will not come; no need to fight the battle over registering women, and no military need to retain the MSSA.” The MSSA is the Military Selective Service Act. It authorizes the Selective

Big Issue 2020

“National service will hopefully become one of the themes of the 2020 campaign,” said Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Democratic Party presidential candidate. Why?

Save the Young

Freedom is good, sure . . . for most of us, most of the time.  But the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service was funded by Congress to study whether perhaps just a smidgen of short-term slavery for young people might be a smart program, a nice change

There’s a Word for It

National Disservice

Common Sense focused on the draft, last week, specifically the idea of “national service,” too often portrayed as a wonderful enriching experience. My midweek commentaries “Old Codger Draft,” “The Opposite of Freedom,” and “Green New Conscript?” pinpointed the plethora of problems with enslaving folks.  On Thursday, I traveled with two

Townhall: Uncle Sam Wants to Nationalize You!

…this weekend at Townhall…. Some folks cannot leave well enough alone. They want not only your money and access to your property. They want you. And seek to compel you. To do what they want. And they see this because . . . freedom? Universal Service Hearing of National Commission

The Coming Draft?

Green New Conscript?

It can happen here. Congress could simply identify a group of citizens and pass a law forcing them into servitude. At least, Congress thinks it has this incredibly abusive power . . . even though the 13th Amendment specifically prohibits it.* In fact, the idea of conscription — not merely
