Desertion, the Draft, and Slavery
Bill Quick

Ron Radosh » The Questions about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s Desertion, and the American Left’s Answer to Them.

An armed force cannot survive, and ensure that dangerous missions are carried out and that discipline is maintained, if any soldier can decide at any time that he cannot fight and has to walk away.

If you volunteer for this going in, that is one thing.  But if you were drafted against your will, it just serves to underline just how indistinguishable that would be from slavery.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
