I've long thought that Heinlein's idea that two years of national service be required for full citizenship to be something considered, but have always eschewed the military side of it.

I think the military's difficulty in meeting enlistment quotas has pretty much everything to do with this.

Absolutely.   Americans should spend more time comparing their country to emerging market economies (EMEs) and poor, developing nations, many if not most  with authoritarian tendencies on top of security issues.

The World’s Democracies Ask: Why Can’t America Fix Itself?
Conversations across continents reveal alarm over the United States’ direction, as it slides away from ideals it once pressed other nations to adopt.
Jennifer McCoy, a political scientist at Georgia State University who co-wrote a recent report on how polarized countries have depolarized in the past, said partisan divisions have kept the United States stuck in place, but so has myopia: Americans rarely look abroad for ideas.

“We have such a myth around our Constitution and American exceptionalism,” she said. “First it makes people very complacent, and second, it takes leaders a very long time to recognize the risk we’re facing. It means it’s very hard to adapt.”

For you Putin might just be a guy who shares some of your tough-guy values, but for a lot of Eastern Europeans the damage the totalitarian experiment has caused (and Putin is merely the latest iteration of it) is a lot more visceral.  


I am not a fan of Poo Tin.
Somebody needs to take him out.

Tough guy values?
Maybe tougher than some.
But I'm a push over really.
