No

A government becomes oppressive under the following two conditions: (1)when a government infringes upon the rights of individuals, and (2)when a government has rights that the citizens themselves do not have. A military draft meets both these conditions; it infringes upon an individual's right to consent, and the citizens themselves do not have the right to draft others, so the government demanding military service of these individuals would be imposing a double standard.

Is it necessary for a state's security to practice conscription?

Yes

No

  • At the time when countries all around the globe are becoming members of military organizations such as NATO, at the time when countries are signing treaties concerning military cooperation and support should a country need protection, the concept of keeping a national army is becoming obsolete. There is no need for a specific country to introduce or practice conscription as long as it is protected by professional armies of its allies (or by a professional army of its own).

Can the conscription benefit the society?
