  1. I am worried that these programs could be used by selective service as “alternative service” during a draft.

    Would you be willing to spread the word about http://www.draftresistance.org? It’s a site dedicated to shattering the myths surrounding the selective slavery system and building mass civil disobedience to stop the draft before it starts!

    Our banner on a website, printing and posting the anti-draft flyer or just telling friends would help.

    Thanks!

    PS. When it comes to conscription, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

  2. Good comment. See my Oct 10 post for the lines of thought that this comment sparked.
