Following up on yesterday’s post on Rep. Rangel’s ridiculous plan to bring back the draft, CNN has a quick look at what a draft would look like, courtesy of the Selective Service website. I particularly enjoy this part of the process:
PHYSICAL, MENTAL, AND MORAL EVALUATION OF REGISTRANTS
Registrants with low lottery numbers are ordered to report for a physical, mental, and moral evaluation at a Military Entrance Processing Station to determine whether they are fit for military service. Once he is notified of the results of the evaluation, a registrant will be given 10 days to file a claim for exemption, postponement, or deferment.
I’m open to the possibility that this means an evaluation of conscientious objector status, or some other moral claim. But it’s not worded that way. So… It’s quite interesting that Selective Service performs a moral evaluation of “registrants” in pursuit of the immoral forced servitude (usually referred to as slavery) of the “registrant” (usually referred to as a human being with an inalienable right to liberty).
