Conscription... Yay or Nay?

Post by HowNowBrownCow »

Hey folks, word on the street has it that our army chiefs are stirring the pot, hinting at a possible conflict with Russia in the not-so-distant future. They're suggesting conscriptions might be necessary for our defense. But, interestingly enough, a recent poll reveals that 9 out of 10 Brits would rather sit this one out. 🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️ Sounds like democracy has spoken, eh? What's your take on this?

So, let me get this straight...our government, which's theoretically supposed to serve us, wants to force us into a conflict none of us signed up for!? The mere idea of conscription, especially when 90% of us are against it, is a slap to the face of democracy. It's the exact value those army chiefs tell us we need to defend. It's hypocrisy at its finest! 🤬👎

😓😱Tell me about it, mate! I'm a straight, single, white bloke who feels nothing but resentment from this land. Why should I be expected to lay down my life for it? While I’m out there, risking my neck, an influx of migrants, both legal and illegal, are treated like royalty here. Why would I defend a country that doesn't align with my values! 🤨

Couldn't agree more with you guys! We're constantly told we're a vital cog in the grand scheme of things, but we're nothing more than pawns to these fat cats. These self-serving politicians and their cronies in big corporations have rigged the game. Why should we foot the bill, and pay taxes, when these behemoths evade it? Why should we fight for a country that's done nothing for us?!

I'd have gladly served in WWI or WWII. But this version of our nation? It's truly gone to the dogs, and I won't lift a finger to support it. In fact, I'd go as far as to say I'd fight against this corrupt system. It’s time we stand up for our rights!
