Quote:
Thirteenth Amendment -
Slavery And Involuntary Servitude


Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,
except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall
have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United
States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.


Quote:
Obama has called repeatedly upon America's people to sacrifice.
What's not yet clear is whether this will entail sacrifice in the
common defense of liberty, or whether it is liberty itself that will
step by step be sacrificed in the name of the common good.
If the latter, the implications are indeed world-changing.

- Claudia Rosett, Forbes.com 11.06.08

by Fintan Dunne, BreakForNews.com - 10 Nov, 2008

The question of whether servitude is voluntary or involuntary,
is a big one. Back when Obama was a candidate, his plans for
student service looked like this:


Quote:
Obama and Biden will set a goal that all middle and high
school students do 50 hours of community service a year.


http://www.barackobama.com/issues/service/

Sounds like a noble kind of goal, doesn't it?

But then that velvet glove goal became an iron fist requirement, and
even as 'Barackobama.com became Change.gov, the noble statement
changed too!. It became this:

Quote:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by
developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service
in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community
service in college every year.


Google Cache Link
Also BreakForNews Archive
http://breakfornews.com/offsitearchive/AmericaServes_Change.gov.htm


However, after observant bloggers caught the none-too-subtle change
the text quickly changed back to the original aspirational-type
formulation which you will see on Change.gov today:

Quote:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by
setting a goal that all middle school and high school students
do 50 hours of community service a year


http://change.gov/americaserves/


Confirm the sleight-of-hand by viewing the current version and compare
it to the Google Cache Link or the BreakForNews Archive of the page.

So which is it, Oh Great Leader? Are you encouraging America's youth
to answer your call, or are you ordering them to obey the call?

Is it volunteerism if it is involuntary?
How stands the Thirteenth Amendment?

In fact, truth be told, no matter what the wording, it is involuntary
either way. See this extract from Obama's July 02, 2008 speech entitled
"A New Era of Service":

Quote:
We'll reach this goal in several ways. At the middle and high
school level, we'll make federal assistance conditional on school
districts developing service programs, and give schools resources
to offer new service opportunities.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/07/a_new_era_of_service.html


So, either way, if federal assistance is conditional on school districts
developing service programs, the students in consequence will be forced
to acquiesce to Obama Service as part of their schooling.

In that speech, Obama used the 'require' word for college students:

Quote:
For college students, I have proposed an annual American Opportunity
Tax Credit of $4,000. To receive this credit, we'll require 100 hours
of public service.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/07/a_new_era_of_service.html


Interesting, how the words 'Opportunity' and 'Require' sit so well together.

( I assume that if Obama at some point institutes a military draft, that
it will be called something like: "The Military Opportunities Act" Confused )


Anyhow, after going through schooling which ensures students are well-
conditioned to such "service", Obama's speech invokes the charisma of
JFK to outline how a panoply of further service is on his agenda:

Quote:
JFK not only called on a new generation, he made their
service a bridge to the developing world, and a bright light of American
values in the darkest days of the Cold War.

Today, AmeriCorps - our nation's network of local, state and national
service programs - has 75,000 slots..... As President, I will expand
AmeriCorps to 250,000 slots, and make that increased service a vehicle
to meet national goals like providing health care and education, saving
our planet and restoring our standing in the world, so that citizens see
their efforts connected to a common purpose. People of all ages,
stations, and skills will be asked to serve
.....

We'll call on Americans to join an Energy Corps to conduct
renewable energy and environmental clean-up projects in their
neighbourhoods....

And we'll also... double the size of the Peace Corps by 2011 to
renew our diplomacy.

We'll expand USA Freedom Corps to create an online network
where Americans can browse opportunities to volunteer. You'll be able to
search by category, time commitment, and skill sets; you'll be able to
rate service opportunities, build service networks, and create your own
service pages to track your hours and activities
. This will empower more
Americans to craft their own service agenda, and make their own change
from the bottom up.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/07/a_new_era_of_service.html

Of course the agenda of these Corps will be decided from the top down,
and will be consistent with the aims of the 'Corps'(The Corporations).
The possibilities are endless. (For example, how about the Health Corps
canvassing black neighborhoods to enroll candidates for HIV tests and the
consumption of the Pharma corporations lethal alleged AIDS 'medications'.)


Americans who use the online systems to track their "hours and activities"
of service had better be aware that State entities may also be
tracking those hours and activities. What a brave new world awaits!

Then there is the Mother of all Corps. Obama again:

Quote:
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve
the national security objectives that we've set," said Obama on July 2.
"We've got to have a civilian national security force that's
just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
"

“I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am
president of the United States ... this will be a central cause of my
presidency."
http://in.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idINIndia-34341720080702


I referred to these 'service' issues in my audio: The RED COUP Gambit,
but just in case you are not getting the message, consider this passage
from prospective Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel's --
"The Plan:" universal citizen service:

Quote:
John Kennedy was right: A nation is defined not by what it does for its
citizens but by what it asks of them. If your leaders aren't challenging you
to do your part, they aren't doing theirs. We need a real Patriot Act that
brings out the patriot in all of us by establishing for the first time an ethic
of universal citizen service. All Americans between the ages of 18 and 25
should be asked to serve their country by going through three months of
basic civil defence training and community service.

This is not a draft, nor is it military. Young people will be trained not as
soldiers, but simply as citizens who understand their responsibilities in the
event of a natural disaster, an epidemic or a terrorist attack. Universal
citizen service will bring Americans of every background together to
make America safer and more united in common purpose
.

http://www.reason.com/blog/show/129949.html


Now isn't that cute! The Patriot Act now intersects with all young
adult Americans being asked to serve through three months of
civil defence training --and all this links to community service.

This isn't all Government stuff, by the way. Obama's speech on these issues
detailed private sector involvement:

Quote:
At the community level, we'll develop public-private partnerships
so students can serve more outside the classroom.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/07/a_new_era_of_service.html


Public-private partnerships also work quite nicely in the Prison system:

Quote:
In a Great Leap Backward, the US Congress has repealed two federal
laws (the Hawes Cooper Act and the Ashurst-Sumner Act) that virtually
outlawed prison labor.... Many of the largest corporations in America
have exploited prison labor in what might be called “Operation
Sweatshop.” Starbucks, Microsoft, Boeing, Victoria’s Secret and other
companies
have participated in prison labor programs. Now, the federal
government is taking the entire concept of prison labor to a new level:
The Federal Inmate Labor Program. Details of the program can be found
on the Pentagon’s own website. Documents released as far back as 2005
establish “Procedures for establishing a civilian inmate prison camp on
Army installations.”
http://www.dissidentvoice.org/2008/11/incarceration-nation-the-rise-of-a-prison-industrial-complex/

Of course it goes without saying that a hugely disproportionate number
of the prison population share the same skin color as Barak Obama,
but that is merely an ironic footnote to these issues of voluntary,
semi-voluntary or outright coerced servitude to the New World Order
of Obama's America.

Another irony is that if Bush had attempted to implement this agenda
there would have been howls of Hitler Youth from the Left in the USA
who now form the bedrock of Obama's political base.

The ultimate irony is that a person of color is celebrating his own ascension
to Power as a symbol which buries the slavery heritage of the USA,
while at the same time overseeing a Prison Industrial Complex which
uses corporate slavery as it's labor --and while instituting forced social
servitude for the youngest - the most impressionable:

Quote:
He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!
-- Adolf Hitler, speech at the Reichsparteitag, 1935


At this late stage, it's worth recalling that in the beginning, involvement
in the Hitler Youth was voluntary. Eventually it became a legal requirement.

But it must be said that the Hitler Youth is a bad analogy. For reasons of
sheer potential fanaticism and ideology, the modern Obama/Emanuel
NWO version is closer to Mao's Red Guards.

Wakey, wakey time folks!

Quote:
For eight years, the out-of-power Left has praised dissent as the
highest form of patriotism, leaving little room for actual, you know,
patriotism. If/when President Obama and company advertise volunteer
service as an option equally as patriotic as military service — and make
the goodies comparable — who will be left to defend our nation?

.... My oh my... is the energy there for the new Youth....





Obama's service plan on the surface does seem to be a good idea considering that many high schools and colleges in the United States already have mandated volunteer services in place.

Infact, I came from a school that required 100 hours of community service to graduate (if you did not obtain the 100 hours you could NOT graduate). What we could do and how we reported our hours was defined and strict. We could only choose to work with non-profit organizations. Volunteering to help your neighbor down the street was not considered volunteer hours. Hmm.

Anyways, I remember the experience of the forced volunteering as somewhat positive because it did get me out in about in the community in a way I may not have done before, but I often did not get my first pick for the organization I wanted so I ended up hanging up concert posters for the local orchestra... lol.

I do remember the stress that I and other students complained about because of the pressure to get the hours done. Those who are heavily involved in clubs and sports do not have as much time as others, especially if you go to an academically demanding school.

However, Obama's plan specifies 50 hours a year?! Wow... I had to do 100 in 4 years and found it difficult..... and 100 hours for college... wow again. That's expecting a lot from a group of young adults who already are under an enormous amount of pressure. Especially those who are in lower income families.. no car... other responsibilities... etc.

I cannot imagine mandating this kind of service in every school and college on a Federal level. Talk about a mess... even if there are not any sinister plans (forced labor, required military service, etc). I say this because even in the city I live in a county of 307,896 people.... many of us found it difficult to volunteer for the organizations we wanted to volunteer for because so many other people had already filled the slots that the organization had open. So with every school requiring that... there aren't going to be enough slots in non-profit organizations.. etc... so it could be easy to make the jump and say "Heeeeeeeeeey... all you people with not enough volunteer hours... come here... come work for your lovely government doing XYZ..." "This is a noble cause!!" (Of course this may be a big jump....)

Overall I do not think Obama's idea for mandating volunteer services in schools is that radical but when we all look at the big picture it is alarming because it seems like all this nice volunteering talk is paving the way for the general acceptance of serving the country in more than one ways. And obviously Obama is extending this call out to more than just the students.

God... I swear half my childhood I was warned of this kind of servitude... and now here it is.... mmmmmmm nice.... Ha... most of the books I studied in middle school and high school were books about children being upset and pigeon-holed into working/serving the government...

I've brought this up with friends of mine and not surprisingly all I hear is..
"No.. this stuff sounds good...." What's wrong with volunteering for the government... and the typical... oh it will never go that extreme...

So thankyou Fintain for bringing this up.... because it is time for a "wakey wakey".... I always hope that American's are not blind... but it is this kind of thing that is so in our faces and we chose to ignore.

I watched Obama's acceptance speech with some friends... all three of them cried.... and I thought ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh boy we are in for a good mind-fucking over the next 4 years.

Of course these hours are the initial hours of service. There is no
guarantee that the hours and the scope of the various Corps will not
be extended in the future -- powered by a suitable national emergency.

The most concerning issue is that all these Corps "normalize"
the social scructure of enforced volunteerism. A structure
which culminates in the Mother of All Corps:

Quote:
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve
the national security objectives that we've set," said Obama on July 2.
"We've got to have a civilian national security force that's

"

This is a street level Homeland Security wet dream worthy of Bush
and Chertoff et. al. Where could such incrementalism end?

This will not fly!!
BUT I guess we may be watching for the next High Level Dilemma that they will create to this end.
NOV 15th is the next level for them NO?
After that, Who knows?
This SHAT is getting real thick! Ain't it Mr. Fintan?
