Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything— you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.
Your quote of the night (via scottaldor)
Why I do not support conscreption or what is known as the Draft.
Conscription or what is also known in modern terms as the draft is an unethical and a morally questionable institution. A system were a person is forced into military service at gun point to protect the State and its claims its protecting your liberty and freedom.
How is it moral to force someone into slavery to protect his claim to freedom? Why do you have to be a slave to protect ones right to be free? This is a contradiction in terms. You are also claiming the government has a stronger claim on your life then you do. That the government owns any means of production, even if it means your death in some remote battlefield in some distend country.
This flies in the face of liberty and self ownership. Why we fought the revolutionary war for. If you believe in the right to own property. You to also must believe in self ownership. You own your own body. No one else has supremacy over it, including forced military or government community service conscription.
For me it is also a question of the right to force someone to doing something they consider morally wrong. How is it the right of the government to force people who have a strong belief that way is wrong, any war. I am thinking of the Quakers and religious groups like them. Who do not believe in any war. You are forcing them to do something that would send them to hell under their tenets and doctrine.You are inferring with the freedom of religion.
In my case I so not believe in interventionist wars, both from a moral stand point and political stand point. If I were drafted tomorrow to go fight in the Middle East. I would be forced at gun point to do something that I am against in every fiber of my body and at gun point to add to the insult. I am not a peace-nik by any stretch of the imagination, willing to take up arms voluntarily if it is called for. Just not by the force of arms called the draft.
Then you also have the economic impact of wars with drafts. The means of production is perverted in war. You are taking productive members who are using their talents and skills to making a living, raising their families, going to church or volunteering at their favorite charity. Forcing into a life they are not prepared for. A place were their talents are not effectively used. How does an artist like me effectively use my talents as an infantry man? We my talents are better used to make entertainment, like movies and games. You are mismanaging the economy with war and the draft.
For all of this. I am against any type of conscription. It is bad period. It screws the economy, they liberties of man and creates slaves to defend what the state calls freedom. It should not be something we should support.
Its repeating here in the US. Watch this to know what is coming to our shores. The policies of the EU are also being implemented here. Then our policies are being implemented there.
What happen Greece is not that faraway from were we are. The cliff is here and we will have riots. We live in a land of surfdome.
We are all slaves to the Government and it spending and its taxation and regulations. Obama will just make it that much worse. Romney would have done the same thing.
We are all collectively being waterboarded for the sake of goverment and its collective ego and want for control of our lives and our fate and legacy to our kids.
I don’t have a future, this is why.
This means I am a criminal, there for I could go to jail. On top of that It will make it almost impossible to get work. I would never pass a background check. All because something I can’t offered to pay in the first place because I have no employment.
My only option at this point is suicide. I have no future, it is dead. No job, most likely ending up in jail. With a massive student debt. What do I have? Nothing!!!!!!!!!

World War 3 coming with in the next 5 years?
Well known economist, trend forecaster and Gloom, Boom and Doom Report publisher Dr. Marc Faber joined some of the world’s leading investment minds at the Barron’s 2012 Roundtable to discuss what’s in store for 2012 and beyond with respect to the economy, inflation, political stability and a host of other issues.
As is generally the case, Dr. Faber doesn’t mince words and warns that, despite what happens in the near term, the end game is global conflict.
Marc Faber: On another optimistic note, World War III will occur in the next five years. That means the Middle East will blow up. New regimes there will be less Western-friendly. The West has also figured out it can’t contain China, which is rising rapidly and will have more military and naval power in Southeast Asia. The only way for the West to contain China is to control the oil tap in the Middle East.
Bill Gross (Founder, Pimco): How does your World War III hypothesis affect the financial markets? Is it positive for stocks?
Marc Faber: It is very positive for stocks and negative for bonds, because debt will grow dramatically. There will be massive monetization of debt. When the U.S. entered World War II total credit equaled 140% of GDP, and there were no unfunded liabilities. Now total credit-market debt is 380% of GDP, and unfunded liabilities make that 800%.
Brian Rogers (Chairman, T. Rowe Price): How is World War III good for stocks?
Felix Zulauf (Zulauf Asset Management): Unused capacity in an economy can be directed to the defense and war industry. That will be paid for by new government debt, and that keeps the economy growing.
Scott Black (President, Delphi): Marc, if Israel strikes Iran’s nuclear facilities, they will use air power. They aren’t going to commit ground troops. It won’t be the kind of conflagration you’re thinking.
Bill Gross: War takes place today in cyberspace and in terrorist space. Whether or not there will be a land war isn’t the question.
Dr. Faber has also expressed his views on prior occasions, suggesting that World War III is an inevitable outcome when nations begin to default on trillions of dollars worth of debt (whether by refusing to pay or simply easing their monetary supply).

With the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act into law, more Americans than ever before are wondering how the country could have descended so quickly into a police state. Far from a unique or isolated act, however, the NDAA is just the latest entry in a long list of steps toward the codification of outright martial law.

British PM David Cameron has met with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia - the UK’s biggest trade partner and arms market in the Middle East. The gulf kingdom has been rattled by recent unrest in the Arab world - and has suppressed protests on home soil as well as elsewhere with ruthless force. During the visit, the British leader and the King of Saudi Arabia discussed shared concerns about Syria, with David Cameron talking about removing the country’s President. But senior politics editor at the New Statesman magazine Mehdi Hasan believes Britain has no moral authority to preach democracy to a country which is using lethal force to disperse protests.
