The military is a contradiction of democratic values, yet a universal draft is the ultimate form of democracy and the essence of democracy’s roots. As such, a universal draft is to be feared by those who would prefer a form of authoritarian government (oligarchy, plutocracy, theocracy, etc.).
I find it no surprise that the end of the draft and institution of a recruited military came at the end of the last liberal US presidency
Bring back the draft and make it universal for ALL 18 year olds, no exceptions, no deferments.
