  1. Great article. I enjoyed reading it. Especially the declaration of economists against the draft …… really nice!

    I am writing a paper against the draft in Austria and found it very useful.
    The situation in Austria is such, that the laws that constitute the draft are even used to legitimize a compulsory civil service. This service is theoretically limited to those who are morally unable to serve with the weapon but has reached a volume of almost 50 % of the draftees. Naturally the labor marked is distorted and the private and public companies that are using the free labour are using their influence to secure their benefits.

    This article showed how this conflict can be won. Thanks….
    Johannes
