The US, an an attempt to make their population hate them even more, has passed the H.R. 1388 - Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act.

I can't tell if this is an attempt to hide conscription, or if it is just "manditory volunteering" (oxymoron anyone?) in the form of community service.

You can find the whole thing here ... this is the most interesting part:

(b) Specific Topics- In carrying out its general purpose under subsection (a), the Commission shall address and analyze the following specific topics: 


(5) The effect on the Nation, on those who serve, and on the families of those who serve, if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform national service or were required to perform a certain amount of national service. 

(6) 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.

Volunteering =/= manditory civil labour?
Hooray for communism!
