On The Subject of Conscription:
Conscription, or compulsory military service, has often found opposition from the religious community based on their belief. Some Americans suggest that the country would better off if it were restored, saying it would bring a better sense of duty and patriotism to the people. On the same side, are those who believe it is necessary in special circumstances when our life and liberty has been threatened. Others, not only pacifists, believe it would be an end to democracy, individual liberty, and the general climate of peace and negotiation. Still others share a middle ground. Should we bring back the draft? Here we hope to examine the issues involved and present differing opinions on the subject.
