Frankly this is a positive thing for a society to do. Have you ever read the book the Giver? It teaches responsibility, discipline, and focus on real
world issues. The whole kids need to be kids excuse is IMO the reason our youth have degenerated into criminal behavior and drug abuse. Not to mention
the rapid development of health problems as a result of such sedentary lifestyles.
You know what, it does not even matter. I got the President I wanted, and the more I find out about these programs he supports, the more I just love
the guy. This will only do good things for Americas youth in our goal for a more Socialist society.
If selflessness is taught at a young age, populations are less likely to grow into a greedy, cynical, egotistical, supremacist, apathetic state of
mind, kind of like many today.
I support this initiative.
There are many cultures where the youth of their society participate in years of civil service, they are not all out teaching the conquering the world
and genocides of peoples. Please don't take things out of context.
