This essay is written by a former French soldier, but I would submit his recommended prescription for bringing back the draft is applicable to the US. After all, we are told we are in a virtual lifelong war on [of] terror around the world. Of course the power structure knows not to institute the draft, but I think we should passionately advocate it. I have never been a supporter of the volunteer army because in an imperial society such as ours, the volunteer army in effect serves as a mercenary military force with very little internal opposition – either in the civil society as well as within the military – since many more people are directly impacted at the emotional level.
