    I didn't issue any declarations of violence either.

    A country is the people in it...not the country itself.

    Sacrificing people without their consent to save their country is wrong, IMO.

    Every citizen should have the choice whether to enlist or not...even if by not enlisting, the country will not 'survive'.

    Freedom of choice is FAR more important then any country.

    Depends on the war. If another nation has declared war on us and our very survival is at stake then yes. If it is a war of choice like Nam, Korea, Iraq etc then I say not only no but HELL NO!

    A country has a right to a military draft during a time of peace.

    So all I must do to violate the natural rights of people and be righteous in my cause is form an organization called the government. To many of you if I were to do this I can draft people to my cause even if that might mean their death, ignore their lack of consent and take from them whatever I desire and declare I need it to provide them services that they never asked to receive.

    If said country is under threat of invasion or ceasing to exist, then yes. It's civic duty to protect your land and your people.

    I have no duty to something I never joined freely.

    No one's stopping you from leaving.
