Because so few serving in politics have worn their country’s uniform, they have collectively forgotten how to put country before party and self-interest. They have forgotten a ‘cause greater than self,’ and they have lost the knowledge of how to make compromises for the good of the country. Without a history of sacrifice and service, they’ve turned politics into war.

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, suggesting that we need to re-instate the draft because, as a country, we’ve lost our sense of self and sacrifice. “The costs would be huge,” he says. “But so would the benefits: overcoming growing social inequality without redistributing wealth; making future leaders, unlike today’s ‘chicken hawks,’ disinclined to send troops into combat without good reason; putting young Americans to work and giving them job and technology skills; and, above all, giving these young Americans a shared sense of patriotism and service to the country.”
