Service and Conscription in the Proposition Nation

Washington, D.C.

Ret Gen Stanley McChrystal writes in Atlantic:

Service may be at the heart of the answer. A year of service has the power to bring young people together from different races, ethnicities, incomes, faiths, and political backgrounds to work on pressing problems facing U.S. society today. In the process, they can build empathy by getting to know each other around something positive—the shared work of participating in a democracy—as they shape their views of their country and the world.


Imagine for a moment a large-scale commitment to offering young Americans who are black and white, rich and poor, Republican and Democrat, and Christian, Jewish, and Muslim opportunities to work side by side, serving their country together. The focus of their service year would be teaching, tutoring, and mentoring disadvantaged students; cleaning neighborhoods in need of renewal; renovating homes in blighted areas; and helping veterans reintegrate into their communities.

Remember my missive about how patriotism manifests in a proposition nation?  Here, we have a derivative of that.  Service and conscription do not have the connotation of blood and soil nationalism, but the ideological rectitude of our proposition nation’s egalitarian diversitarian polyglot pluralist multiculturalist proposition.  To put it another way, McChrystal doesn’t believe that the problem is that we are the victims of an attempt at a hostile forceful takeover, he thinks the problem is that people don’t sufficiently agree with egalitarian ideology.  Therefore, he doesn’t want to draft people so they can defend their tribe and land from other hostile tribes from another land, he wants to draft them to force them to adhere to a political doctrine.  He’s not drafting their bodies, he’s drafting their brains.

There’s another word for this “service”: slavery. A multicultural/racial political entity is properly called an empire, and an empire needs a dictatorship and police state to TEMPORARILY hold it together. Certainly slavery is a common dictatorial weapon. The harder the pitch, the poorer the product is the old saying, and when you have to resort to slavery to sell your product, you know you’ve got a real stinker on your hands. Pitching harder doesn’t change the worthless nature of what you’re trying to sell.

It’s not like we haven’t seen the product, not like we haven’t had it shoved down our throats and up our asses 24/7 for the last 50 years. We seen it. It sucks. And another year of forced feeding it to us past the 12 years of primary and secondary school, plus x years of collage, and the constant droning from the media that we’ve already endured isn’t going to make much difference. Egalitarianism is a lie, and when you have a third-world population you’ll be a third-world country. Forced brainwashing won’t change the bad effects of that reality, just as it doesn’t put food on the table in North Korea.

He is also ignoring what the military does to screen out bad applicants.

This idea has been floated by the Left for as long as I can remember. I think they want people to get used to the idea of working for the gov’t at slave wages.

Your analysis ought to be required reading in every high school in the USA.

I think by now that even a majority of undergrad college students wouldn’t get it.

Universal conscription would make almost everyone a race realist; without the forced contact, they could go their whole lives believing in Morganfreemanism. IIRC, blogger PA said his eye-opening moment was when the OJ verdict was on TV in a mess hall, and all the uniformed apes went ape.

A year of service to clear up those qualms about living amongst wold animals. Thank you General Admission. With leaders like this, my predictions of a Turkey Shoot are coming into focus.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
