    Abolish the Draft! (Or Extend It To Everyone?) Edward Hasbrouck on the US Military Draft

    This week on Love and Revolution Radio, we speak with Edward Hasbrouck, who, while traveling across Europe by bicycle, is also organizing a campaign challenging the future of the US military draft. Find out where and when the next national hearings by the commission polling the public about the military draft are going to be held. And find out how the US military is eyeing the possibility of expanding draft registration to women . . . and also thinking about a universal conscription into the military that would included everyone from medical personnel to tech support to your grandmother.

    ""It's not just that there's a threat of a draft. Resistance to the draft has been a tremendous victory. We need just a small step further to follow through on that to get draft registration ended, to abolish the Selective Service System, and most importantly to finally force the government to acknowledge that our people power limits the extent to which they can wage war." - Edward Hasbrouck, Draft Resister

    About the Guest:
    Edward Hasbrouck is author of the series "the Practical Nomad", one of the go-to authorities on international travel, an investigative journalist, and also a human rights activist and an advisor on travel-related civil liberties issues. He's a man with many hats, and he joins us today to talk about the effort to end the US military draft.

    "If women remember that once upon a time we sang with the tongues of seals and flew with the wings of swans, that we forged our own paths through the dark forest while creating a community of its many inhabitants, then we will rise up rooted, like trees. And if we rise up rooted like trees, well then, women might indeed save not only ourselves, but the world."- Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted.
