2005, Drafting all Young Americans
- 2005, Drafting all Young Americans
By Lord Rago Pulse
There is a military draft coming in 2005. All young Americans should
be alarmed, that their life is at risk like this. The Universal
Military Training and Service Act of 2001 lays the groundwork for
this new draft, which could be implemented as early as March 31st,
2005, and it calls for the draft to be ready for service within a
period of 75 days. Listen closely. June 15th, 2005 could be the first
activation of the military draft in over 30 years. Our government has
already signed a treaty with both Mexico and Canada agreeing that
they will not harbor draft dodgers, and will ship them back to
America to be drafted, like sheep being led to slaughter.
Recently and the latest step in re-instating the military draft,
Senator Chuck Hagel told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee
hearing, "Why shouldn't we ask all of our citizens to bear some
responsibility and pay some price? Those who are serving today and
dying today are the middle class and lower middle class." Does this
not sound like the pre-text to the return of the feared draft?
I am an adolescent, nineteen years of age, who just wants to live.
That is all. There are many like us all over the world, who just want
to live a life, free from ignorance, free from violence, free from
war. Why is this so hard? Why must there always be so much hatred, so
much chaos, especially on the part of the so-called civilized world,
and its leaders? Our leaders do not be able to comprehend the fact
that violence and retaliation is not going to do a single thing, but
inflame more violence.
Students, youth, and children alike, this is your rallying cry. This
is the issue that involves you directly, and by that, I mean quite
possibly your life. This is grave, and it is a matter of life and
death. If you cherish your life, your freedom, then it is your duty
to join the growing out-cry against war, and general fascism that is
becoming more apparent in our country with each passing day. If you
value your freedom to live, then you will not ignore this warning.
You will help spread the message to your friends, to everyone who
needs to hear this, to wake up and resist the forces of war.
This government corruption, this fascism, must be resisted. This is a
mockery of what little freedom we have left in America. This society
has treated us like slaves, like robots, and we have accepted this
slavery with a smile on our face. We were all brainwashed into the
impossible dreams that society has placed in our heads. We have been
conditioned into ignorance, into blind conformity. Our society has
attempted to destroy the human spirit. Our society has made a
disgrace of everything beautiful and sacred.
Well, the tide is turning. A large number of Americans, especially
youngsters, have woken up to the lies we have been fed. People are
waking up, and realizing that our government and society does not
have the right to tell them how to live their lives, or to blind them
with ignorance. A great many people are angry. They are angry that
our system has blinded so many others, and kept them content in their
own ignorance. They are crying out for freedom, the freedom to simply
The truth is spreading, and it cannot be stopped. The fascists in
control of our society may try, but they cannot contain truth, they
cannot keep the ignorant sheep of America asleep for much longer. Our
government fears that the majority will awaken, and realize how they
have been enslaved, both mentally and physically, and this scares
them. It scares them because they fear losing their power, and only
god knows what ends they might deem necessary to retain that power.
Martial law seems like a very likely method. What will you do, how
will you feel, when you realize that a police state has been in the
making for years, and you did nothing to stop it?
In a nation where the poor and old cannot afford health care, where
the economy is falling apart, where 15 percent of people live below
the poverty line, where hundreds of thousands are homeless, and where
the entire mass media system is owned by six mega-media
conglomerates; in a nation with the world's highest crime rate and
world's largest prison population; in a nation where half of all
marriages end in divorce, where 25 percent of kids under 12 live in
poverty, and where the gulf between the rich and poor is growing
everyday; in a nation that supports dictatorships in Saudi Arabia,
Egypt, and Turkey; in a nation where the government is plagued by
corruption and fascism and 40 percent of the homeless are veterans;
in a nation with one of the world's highest teen suicide and stress
rates you're telling me our biggest problems are terrorism and
I beg you, members of my generation, to wake up, and to not buy into
the fascism that is being fed to you as democracy. Refuse to fight,
refuse to fight for the lies that have blinded you, and blinded that
of your brothers. Peace is the only answer, in a world gone this mad.
Violence will do nothing to solve anything. Please, wake up now.
Realize the truth. Resist. A new worldwide call for freedom is being
heard. The dawning of a new age is upon us. The spirits of
enlightment, ecstasy, and life are awakening worldwide. Will you join
in, or simply remain apathetic, until you yourself are being
enslaved? The time is now.
