Comment: don't use the voluntary label

(See in situ)

don't use the voluntary label

don't use the voluntary label of today's military as an excuse for bad policy. a lot of poor people are targeted to join who don't know any better or are hard up for cash. doing hard drugs or driving without a seat-belt is also "voluntary" but as a society we try our best to stop people from doing these things to prevent undue harm to themselves, for their own good. the same should be said of our military, no matter how voluntary it is.
