Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy - Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy The Constitution adopted in 1789 gave Congress the "power to raise and support armies," but it neither mentioned nor prohibited conscription. The Framers left that issue to the future, although most of them believed that the United States like Britain would enlist its men rather than conscript them, and would pay for its armies through the power to tax. Not until World War I did the United States rely primarily upon conscription. The Selective Service Act of 1917 was adopted in large part because a civilian-led "preparedness" movement had persuaded many Americans that a selective national draft was the most equitable and efficient way for an industrial society to raise a wartime army....   [tags: Military Army Drafting History Essays]

Eclectic theorists maintain, for example, that there is nothing “‘natural’ (about) the displacement of a 1960s’ style liberal pacifism by a 1930s’ style militant nationalism” (Katzenstein 2001:157). What Japan did a century ago was characteristic of the political atmosphere at that time. They were afraid of being colonized by foreign countries, so they decided to be the colonizer (Kang 2003:17).
