Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) recently announced his intention of introducing legislation that would reinstate the draft sometime next year. Political analysts have since picked up on this story and have openly talked about the ramifications of reinstating the draft.
The draft that Rangel advocates is not however the same draft that has been issued in past times of war. Rangel’s proposal would engulf every man and women and service would not be limited to military service, but national service as well. This proposal lines up perfectly with Karl Marx’s call for "equal liability of all to labor" in the eighth plank of the Communist Manifesto.
