In the period preceding WWII in fact from 1925 until the end of the war in 1945 the Nazi party had a really good idea. The idea was to organise their young man and women and to instill in them a firy passion for service to their country. Voluntary at first but convulsive from December 1936 every boy and girl was enlisted to do service for their country and the Nazi party. They were called the Hitler Jugend.
Now it is of course recognised as the paramilitary unit it was intended to be but at the time every German parent was proud to have their child serve the Fuhrer and the Fatherland.
Now Obama has a brilliant idea: Mandatory service for every young woman and man in the USA. Ladies and gentlemen I give you the Obama Jugend.
The House passed a bill yesterday which includes disturbing language indicating young people will be forced to undertake mandatory national service programs as fears about President Barack Obama’s promised “civilian national security force” intensify.
The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act, known as the GIVE Act, was passed yesterday by a 321-105 margin and now goes to the Senate.
Under section 6104 of the bill, entitled “Duties,” in subsection B6, the legislation states that a commission will be set up to investigate, “Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”
Section 120 of the bill also discusses the “Youth Engagement Zone Program” and states that “service learning” will be “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”
