What more proof do we need that 1984 is here?

I have a simple theory as to why mandatory service will never happen. People won't do it. There isn't enough money or room to put the millions of people who would refuse in jail. My guess is they will explore these mandatory options, but in the end will decide that mandatory service just won't work, because guess what...it won't.
I would imagine even the millions of people who go along with it out of fear of a fine/jail time/whatever, will be so angry at being forced to "volunteer" that the quality of "help" they are providing will be so horrible as to be better off not having these "volunteers" around.

Reality is one hell of a pill to swallow for many. Back when the first threads surfaced regarding Obama's plan for 'volunteerism' many scoffed and blew it off. Then, out of nowhere, the bill moved through congress without a blink amidst one of Obama's many distractions.
Half of the nation probably doesn't even know that this new service law even exists. So, these recent actions by Obama and the Mrs. seem sincere to the masses. However, Obama's community organizers will be knocking on doors by the end of July. Recruitment is well on it's way.
This is one promise he intends to keep.

Citizens HAVE to unite around the great nation and serve it like slaves. Unity around the figure of authority, the ruling class, the high caste, the State supremacy... This is all very old ideas, just rehashed under new disguises.
After all, the signs of fascism were all over the place... Americans had to open their eyes instead of believing in the fairy tales taught in high school History classes. But perhaps it's not too late... :puviewz:
