I didn't say all economic leftists support compulsory national service.  I'm saying that supporters of compulsory national service tend to be leftists.

Jimmy Carter was the guy who brought back selective service registration after it had been indefinitely suspended, over the opposition of people like Senator Mark Hatfield.

Therefore, Jimmy Carter is an evil fascist warmonger!

I imagine hyphenation, for both spouses, as a sort of custom would very quickly make us all sound like a bunch of bizarrely named English aristocrats. If Peter Flynn marries Beatrice Mendez and has a kid named Anthony, who in turn marries Alice Glazowski-Chanut, their kid would be named Colin Mendez-Flynn-Glazowski-Chanut, who would then marry Beth Harper-Zhang-Rothman-Wald, and their kid would be named...

Being forced by the government to dig holes, plant trees, or pick up garbage for two years, for example.

Fair enough - I think Kathleen Kennedy-Townsend's community service component of HS graduation was a good thing... a few hours here and there helping others is hardly fascism (especially since they chose how they did it). Then go off to college and think 'hey, helping others is a good thing' or 'hey... it's MY time, I can return to being a selfish prick now'

I have volunteered for years, it's a great thing to do... but you really shouldn't be forced-forced.
