Should pacifists be imprisoned? Should we bring back the Draft? [View all]

This weekend, as we honor a great American Pacifist, it seems like a good time to ask whether or not Pacifists are sufficiently patriotic to be allowed to walk the streets freely.

There are some calling for a draft, so that Pacifists and others opposed to war can be imprisoned as traitors.













So, should we bring back the draft and throw Pacifists in prison?

No need to imprison Pacifists. It's enough to just deny them an education. No student loans or grants for Pacifists!
