AbstractThe authors discuss the importance of returning the universal conscription to protect the military capabilities, national security, and democracy in the U.S. They cite two interrelated arguments on the need for broader cross-section of society in the military and the technological competence to ensure global power status. The authors contend that universal conscription provides policy approaches that can help address the challenges brought by the realms of technical proficiency.
