Found this at my school... fuck everything about this.

Let this be your first lesson that, despite the constant drumbeat about freedom and individual liberty, YOU do not live in a free country.

Anyone else think that looks like it was made in the 90's?

The sad part is it's freer than most.

Unfortunately it is what a man's got to do if he ever wants a college loan or to work for the state. Doesn't male privilege rock?

They are to remind the privileged males in our society that they must register themselves as cannon fodder for the truly elite.

True, and the laws in place may well be worth opposing. That does not, however, justify you making shit up in an attempt to make your point sound more dramatic.

It is entirely inconsequential until it isn't.

Budweiser's advertising department is working for the government.

If there will never be one again, then why do we have to sign up?

Everyone was on vacation while that was going on. They got invited to Poland, punch was served.

"I also think there are prices too high to pay to save the United States. Conscription is one of them. Conscription is slavery, and I don't think that any people or nation has a right to save itself at the price of slavery for anyone, no matter what name it is called. We have had the draft for twenty years now; I think this is shameful. If a country can't save itself through the volunteer service of its own free people, then I say : Let the damned thing go down the drain!" -Robert Heinlein

As if the pamphlets are there to kindly remind men to sign up. Really?

Totally, bro.

Since you can't be bothered to read past the link provided, copypasta from the Wikipedia entry:

The Selective Service System is a means by which the United States government maintains information on those potentially subject to military conscription. Most male U.S. citizens and male immigrant non-citizens between the ages of 18 to 25 are required by law to have registered within 30 days of their 18th birthday.

Basically, you're required by law to register to be drafted into the military should Congress decide to reinstate the draft.

Women not only are not required to register, but are exempted from registering altogether.

I am trying to find a citation for this, but am pretty sure you are severely overstating the case. It is against the law to display Nazi symbols or use their slogans, or otherwise advocate for Nazism in Germany; but certainly not to mention them.

I hate the fact that people are posting shit like this around school, but at least they're being reminded to register at all. It shouldn't be necessary, and until that requirement is removed, it is important that they do register. Otherwise they're screwed if they try to go to college. It's better to register right now than to dodge it, even if the principles around it suck.


Most European countries don't have conscription.


All those European countries you think are so much better than the USA have mandatory 100% conscription for everyone

You are confused. We don't.

Methinks you missed the sarcasm about "privileged males"
