The Draft

Few efforts of human behavior modification are more remarkable or more effective than that of the socio-military institution known as the draft. A primary purpose of a draft or other such institution is to instill, by intimidation in the young males of the society the uncritical conviction that the government is omnipotent. He is soon taught that a prayer is slow to reverse what a bullet can do in an instant. Thus, a man trained in a religious environment for eighteen years of his life can, by this instrument of the government, be broken down, be purged of his fantasies and delusions in a matter of mere months. Once that conviction is instilled, all else becomes easy to instill.
EVEN MORE INTERESTING IS THE PROCESS BY WHICH A YOUNG MAN'S PARENTS, WHO PURPOTREDLY LOVE HIM, CAN BE INDUCED TO SEND HIM OFF TO WAR TO HIS DEATH... The draft (selective service, etc.) is an institution of compulsory and collective sacrifice and SLAVERY, devised by the middle aged and the elderly for the purpose of pressing the young into doing the public dirty work...It is marked and SOLD TO THE PUBLIC UNDER THE LABEL OF "PATRIOTIC = NATIONAL" SERVICE.
-- Excerpt from ‘Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars’ found in William Cooper's book "Behold A Pale Horse"
