Servitude to the state

by Walter Olson on July 23, 2008

Whatever this group “Service Nation” is all about, it sure isn’t liberty. Jim Lindgren has their number (Volokh Conspiracy, several recent posts; Coyote; Althouse).

But see: the organization now denies (Somin @ Volokh) that its agenda includes mandatory national service, despite the goal recently listed on its website (now removed) of “Launch[ing] a debate about why and how America should become a nation of universal national service by 2020.”

This is the way that all “progressive” movements ultimately behave. The people are considered to be subservient to the state. Big Brother knows what is best for you and you will obey his commands. We can now add the slogan Voluntary is Mandatory to War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength.
