Swords and Plowshares
In the symbolic language of my title, we need both swords and plowshares. The United States should take the lead in developing a form of society that can serve as a model for the world. I propose mandatory national service for all U.S. citizens, normally beginning at age 18. Individuals should be allowed to choose the form of service from a set of broad categories, including military and nonmilitary options, all of which contribute to the security and welfare of the U.S. and the world community.
