Journal Entry: Now, think about conscription, or the draft. If Canada became involved in a major war, and you were drafted, what would you do? Would you do your patriotic duty and serve in a war that perhaps you didn't believe in? Would you run to another country like the draft dodgers did in the U.S. during the Vietnam War? It is a very difficult question to answer. Give me a paragraph with your thoughts. You do not have to make a definite decision, but I would like to know the things that would go through your mind (ex. pros and cons) if this were to happen to you as a young Canadian. To help you think about whether going to war would be worth it for you, listen to the songs below written and performed during the Vietnam era by singers who were protesting the war and the young people drafted into it. The lyrics are also posted so you can follow along:

If Canada was involved in a mojor war, I would half to know the exact reasoning for the war, if it has meaning or is something worth risking my life over. If it was meaningful and if it was won something would come out of it for my country, yes I would fight for my counrty. No I would not fight a war I did not personaly believe in. Beacuse many people think yes it is my country therefore i half to deffend it, but they do not think what it is about. They just think they half to join in on their countrys war and support them. I personaly do not think war is worth it. Beacuse all that really comes out of it is lives of many people lost and maybe a country can say ha we beat you were better. Thinking about all the people who have lost their lives beacuse of war, makes me wish that countries would let their people know what they are fighting for, let them know not that they are just being pulled into do other peoples dirty work and fight other peoples war's, but let them know what they are fighting for. Not lie or bend around the truth but inform them of the reasoning for war. I think the cons of war are, many people loose their lives, many people die not even really knowing what their fighting for, many soilders realize what their fighting for when its to late, it makes the government know that people are patriotic and will fight for their country, therefore the government abusing the knowledge of that. It results of more violence, more anger, and more terrorism. It can end in slavery and genocide. It can also generates bitterness and hatred. The pro's are the winning country get's respect or maybe even feard by some countries, war prompts changes and progress in human civilization.Sometimes, it means to a good end, ex. the problem that was fought for might be solved.

A good entry...put it in your journal?
