I'd be exempt but my little sister's absolutely terrified about the draft requiring women to register by the time she comes of age. I know it's definitely going to happen eventually, especially with how much perfect equality is being pushed, but I just hope it isn't for another decade or so.

But roles should fit the person. There are women who are capable in combat and others who anyone would be stupid to trust with a gun or heavy machinery.

Conscription is democratic, and has historically been considered an essential part of a healthy democracy–this tradition goes back to the Athenian democracy, but also includes the modern Scandinavian social democracies.
Revolutionary France might not have invented the practice but they were the best at it; they created the form of society built around industrial conscription that was then taken for granted by the entire world.
Universal education and universal conscription have always been tied together, even before the young French democracy brought it to a more perfect form; the early industrial state of Prussia had already permanently linked the two.
The general understanding had always been that the full matriculation of a citizen began with compulsory education and terminated with the end of his period of mandatory conscription service.
It does not do to give the Fascists too much credit in the establishment of actually functional social institutions, especially not social institutions tied to universal education and the improvement of social integration and a reduction in general social alienation.

Women should not have a mandatory draft because they are more valuable to maintaining national birthrate than men. It is not an issue of equality, but one of reason. Regardless the US has enough voluntary soldiers that a draft is unlikely for anyone.

In my view, if there's going to be an army, I think it ought to be a citizens' army. Now, here I do agree with some people, the top brass, they don't want a citizens' army. They want a mercenary army, what we call a volunteer army. A mercenary army of the disadvantaged. And in fact, in the Vietnam War, the U.S. military realized, they had made a very bad mistake. I mean, for the first time I think ever in the history of European imperialism, including us, they had used a citizens' army to fight a vicious, brutal, colonial war, and civilians just cannot do that kind of a thing. For that, you need the French Foreign Legion, the Gurkhas or something like that. Every predecessor has used mercenaries, often drawn from the country that they're attacking, like England ran India with Indian mercenaries. You take them from one place and send them to kill people in the other place. That's the standard way to run imperial wars. They're just too brutal and violent and murderous. Civilians are not going to be able to do it for very long. What happened was, the army started falling apart. One of the reasons that the army was withdrawn was because the top military wanted it out of there. They were afraid they were not going to have an army anymore. Soldiers were fragging officers. The whole thing was falling apart. They were on drugs. And that's why I think that they're not going to have a draft. That's why I'm in favor of it. If there's going to be an army that will fight brutal, colonial wars… it ought to be a citizens' army so that the attitudes of the society are reflected in the military.
–Noam Chomsky

Women are 50% of society and the citizenry, and we cannot trust a professional soldier class to reflect the interests of our class. Mercenaries might fight more effectively than militias but that is not the only concern to be had with the social organization of a military–hell, that's almost certainly not even the first concern of a modern state given the highly technological nature of modern military combat, and social instability as a result of population depletion is only a concern in the sorts of total and absolute wars that have not been fought since the Red Army raised the red flag over Berlin.

How so? Given that society pairs 1:1, men and women are equally as important for maintaining the national birthrate. If you had men going around impregnating more than one woman at a time, you would be able to make this argument.

Because men (and a lot of women too) tend to have a reductive view of gender equality, they only see equality in it's abstract form, instead of being against compulsory military service for everyone, they avoid the problem all together and focus on "equality" instead.

Drafting is something the goverment do when pro soldiers are not enough/to expensive. Compare the gear a navy seal uses with the basic stuff of an american soldier in WWII.

My point is that drafting should only be used under emergencies. Like living in Korea or Israel, or even worst, sudden invassion. You can give every citizen a gun, not full gear and lots of suplies.
If you live in a rich country good for ya, not everybody is so lucky.
Also, not every one should do the same tasks, the weakest ones can be pilots, medics, drivers, engineers, etc.

>Drafting is something the goverment do when pro soldiers are not enough/to expensive.
Also, drafted soldiers tend to be of an much higher quality than professional ones. When you draft millions you have so much room to be picky and discard those who are unfit. You would think paying volunteers would produce a better soldier but people who are smart and able tend not soldier much anyways. Also, the pay is pretty shit compared to the risks so you have to lower standards to meet quotas or the system comes down.
>You can give every citizen a gun, not full gear and lots of suplies.
Drafting is the optimal strategy regardless of the actual state of security and is more commonly called as "conscription". The reason it's not widely implemented is that it's a political suicide, freedom of the people override the interests of the state during peace.

Also, there will never be an situation where people would just be "given a rifle". That has only happened in the fanatical cults of Adolf and Tojo.

I forgot to mention that drafting/conscripting a competent 1st world army itself is way way more expensive than mere professional army for obvious reasons. Lost wages, more people going in and out the system in yearly basis, healthcare for soldiers etc etc. Sure, conscripting could be cheaper in some totalitarian a-hole but here you have families to answer to. You have to run a drafted army with the same standards (and in actuality higher) as a paid one.

Not all combat is equal. It doesn't take brawns to lob missiles and if the launcher gets stuck ain't nobody unstucking it, man or a woman. There are so so many combat roles that could be filled without acing a physical exam. Nothing stops you from being a door gunner.

I think that if the drafting women along with men is equal. Would I want it? No, but I recognize that it is indeed equal.
I also know that while there are plenty of jobs in the military a women can do as well as a man there are some jobs that a man can physically do better.
I just think that the physical standard should be equal. If women can pass the physical standards then nothing should hold them back from the career field they want.
That being said, an army special forces green beret or a navy seal is going to (and should) have different physical standards than someone in a supply or intelligence job.

Men feel ostrcized and "having an unfair disadvantage" in society due to radical feminist speech and the legal frameset developed in the 20th century against males in terms of effectivelly vetoing getting custody of children and making divorce highly destructive to them.

It is a problem caused by poor "vengeance" mindset and the great unequality the feminists accidently created when trying to fix other real unequality issues.

It is why feminism needs to be rethinked in order to undo this bias against men in the legal system while at the same time adressing real inequalities against women (like for instance, the lack of penalty for fathers who abandon pregnant women).

Clearly you do not understand how the military works.

Hazing is not only necessary, but it is the most constant activity during boot camp and it is meant to harden the recruit and prepare him not only to the horrors of combat, but also to the even harsher treatment they will get if they end up being captured as POWs.

US army is not even particularly harsh at that. My brother did officer school for the Brazilian Army and not only were they constantly hazed for a month, but they were also forced to go through large periods of hunger (up to 4 days without any food) and beaten up with wooden canes and lead pipes. One day he was just dragged out of a field exercise, beaten up, tortured and interrogated as they acused him of treason (all fake, but he did not knew for 3 days locked in a chamber). This happens so they don't break up under torture and get used to harsh treatment that they will receive if captured by enemy forces.

This girl endured nothing serious. Just very light hazing without even any phisical hazing whatsoever.

I would never go to the military because i just can't endure that shit. And that girl should not have joined up either if she can't take it.

Yeah you're right, hazing somebody is over the line. Getting shot at and killing people? Cake walk compared to your drill sergeant being a meanie. Everyone knows when girls cry the firefight stops until she walks off the field.

In all seriousness he didn't do more than grab her and tell her to get moving. Following commands from an officer is fundamental to the entire concept of an army. While there are some that cross the line that's definitely not one.

Which it fails to do or doesn't do very well. If you want to "harden" someone (which in my mind is impossible, you should have them to learn to follow orders during stress) then there are legal, not hazing ways to do it. For example, you put guys and gals go through different exercises without sleep until they drop. You're stressed the fuck out since you only had few hours of sleep during the last three days, you feel like shit because you haven't got to eat and you're exhausted because of all the physical exercise you have to do. Hazing doesn't teach anything useful to recruits, it doesn't introduce them to new environments or teach them how to do something fast and under pressure. '

When you're hazed the only thing you do is take it without input.
>US army is not even particularly harsh at that.
Depends on the standard.

What a waste. The problem with teaching how to receive torture is that you will never be able to cross the same lines as the opposition. It's useless.
>This girl endured nothing serious. Just very light hazing without even any phisical hazing whatsoever.
It still serves no purpose and hurts the army as a whole
>I would never go to the military because i just can't endure that shit. And that girl should not have joined up either if she can't take it.
Nobody joins the military to get hazed by some pos abusing his power.

>>46588
Hazing doesn't teach you to shoot to kill. It doesn't teach you how to act under fire either. Actually training for those things does, using targets, simulating engagements with MILES etc.
>In all seriousness he didn't do more than grab her and tell her to get moving.
He was a cunt too.
>Following commands from an officer is fundamental to the entire concept of an army.
Yes, that's the point. That co had his own guidelines which he didn't follow. It's not his place to abuse recruits as he wishes, he has a job of training them and not indulging in some shitty power trip.

That's not even half bad. My first idea about solving the problem of universal vote was for separate conditions for both sexes:
men could vote if they had military service and pay taxes
and women if they got married and had children
There could be other benefits and advantages linked to this too like free higher education. These things could cull leftist voters and also help with the demographic decline, but your idea also has potential: giving vote only to people who have an interest and invested in in society and the future - respondible adults.

>which it fails to do or doesn't do very well
Because it is not terrible or persistent enough, or you just have no clue.
>It still serves no purpose and hurts the army as a whole
You say this based on? The bad publicity? What a joke – the point of arguing for it and against those who are against it (like yourself) is that your opinion is bullshit. It is good for the military.
>Nobody joins the military to get hazed
They don't join it to necessarily die either. They join to 'win the war' but many will die if it is at all like many of the brutal wars of history. You were given the reason it's done. The video doesn't even show hazing what a fucking joke man. And he even breaks "mean asshole" character for a second.
Were you ever even shot at? Weak. Cry about it. I'd want much worse to happen to me just to train in martial arts or football because I know the benefits – but we're talking war and you're absolutely delusional. Get over it.

I know this thread is super outdated and irrelevant but you DO realize that if someone's unfit as a combatant they wouldn't get drafted as one, right?
For every combatant there are many supporting roles, tons of logistics personnel and countless paper pushers necessary to keep an organization going.
Plus, even if America (or any country for that matter) had to conscript people en mass, people who've never held a gun before would most likely take over posts held by professional soldiers so those professional soldiers can go fight.
The hypothetical scenario is modern USA vs modern Iran alone, not WW2 where America was scrambling to form a decent military ASAP, so we wouldn't see as many (if at all) inexperienced conscripts thrown into the front line.

I think it's pretty clear that fenimists aren't going to be lobbying to be treated like men in all the shitty ways. They're not going to support a female draft, they're not going to support women having to buy the engagement ring, they're not going to demand more women in high risk jobs.

It is pretty fucked up. In Vietnam 2.5% of conscripts died, another 40% were casualties getting injured in the line of duty. And war is incredibly stressful, so many people from Iraq to the Vietnam War return with ptsd.

The wikipedia article you linked does not support the idea that her life is "confirmed fake," it seems like most of the controversy emerged as a consequence of the political fallout of the collapse of the Soviet Union, which came with a wave of iconoclastic rejection of the role Communists played in WW2 throughout Eastern Europe.

Don't really care about what Wikipedia editors authorize as acceptable and unacceptable sources.

The Wikipedia article on Adolf Hitler repeats the perfect tidy story of him committing suicide with his waifu in the last bunker while the Red Army marches overhead, and then his corpse, one of the most important pieces of evidence of one of the biggest villains ever that you could get your hands on, is conveniently burned, on the spot, beyond recognition, like a Shakespeare play or something.

Meanwhile, declassified CIA docs on their own website show for decades after the Nazi defeat they were still looking for him in South America, and they've concluded due to the ear and brown shape that many photos of Hitler in public even as early as 1942 are all his doubles.


I'm not high IQ enough to know why so much stuff is faked, but I do know most of it is. And the quotes alone by that Zoya chick read like a Hunger Games fanfic. Maybe it worked for 20th century humans but it's aged very poorly.

The soviets proved in WWII that there are a great number of combat roles women can excel at, including fighter pilots and snipers. The only real difference then, in times of war, is the potential for women to produce children to repopulate after war.

Ah yeah. The spooky ~Night Witches~ that revealed their locations early, for some reason, at night, for some reason, by making a lot of spooky noise and the Soviet super markswomen. It's depressing when you learn how much is models, falsified records, and staged photography.

The sniper ones are the worst.

What else do you think they would have done with his corpse in the days before the bunker fell? Preserve it for the soviets to parade it around red square? They ran out in a crater and doused them it in gasoline.

I don't know about fighter pilots but the Soviet "night witches" were night bombers who flew crappy little biplanes very slow and very low to the ground in order to hit their targets and better avoid interception and flak fire. I'm not sure what you mean about "give away their position" because it's quite difficult to be completely hidden in an aeroplane.

That leaves you with an army consisting entirely of incel failures and monstrous sociopaths (with significant overlap between the two groups). Armies should reflect the leadership in their wars so that decisions of military and social governance are made with skin in the game. An army of mercenaries and/or incels has all of the problems of a state running an army of killer robots, in that if consequences and military disasters don't affect anyone that anyone cares about then there's no reason a brutal war wouldn't just keep getting waged indefinitely, especially if it's an imperial, colonial war waged far from domestic eyes.

For the most part, modern states put up at least a pretension of democracy. The government is charged with its duties by its society, and discharges its duties according to society's guidelines.
In democracy, there can be no legitimate differentiation between being a participant in society and being in the position of leadership and authority in the state. There can be no difference between a legitimate military target in a war and an illegitimate civilian target. A suicide bomber who blows up a democratic society's public bus in a war has attacked the enemy's head of state. "But the individuals in democracies are often overruled by more powerful rivals"–yeah, the same shit happened historically to leaders in monarchies and theocracies, welcome to governance. And the democracies of the world are extremely fond of exercising this standard against non-democratic rivals, with names like Dresden and Hiroshima making that point perfectly clear.
The people and society at large in a democratic state are part of the wars of democracies, they are participants in it and they are legitimate targets of enemies within it. Wearing a uniform and operating a resupply station for a period during a democracy's war does not change that in principle, it just brings that already-existing reality to the surface and makes it uncomfortable.
That discomfort is, in and of itself, a good thing.

If NATO get into a full-blown war vs another alliance of powerful nation-states (not impoverished religious fanatics in the desert) with all the weapons we have available nowadays there won't be anybody left alive at the end of it. Any survivors will either die of radiation poisoning and/or disease or starve to death or kill themselves. No matter how good they think they are at surviving no small group of people will. Modern society is too interdependent on global supply chains.

Anonymous 56023

Yes, that's a good point, it's all the more sociologically important that the citizenry of modern democracies avoid an unwarranted sense of distance, irrelevance and invincibility when discussing the possibility of armed conflict. Nobody should ever be able to think "war isn't going to affect me, because neither I nor my family will be at risk, because it's not like we've joined the army or anything."

I mean, this site is riddled with incels who hate males, but men have a pretty rough go at alot of life, and they get less and less support from their male friends with the machismo problem, and less support from women who pass them off as scum, and less support from their mothers, who ruin potential good husbandos by turning them into blubbering emotional trainwrecks, now they have to go out and die in defense of those same social systems that let him down, i'd want to drag those systems with me too out of spite.

I'd say that's more because Judaism is heavily matriarchal rather than female Israelis being trained combatants.
