Concerning the Greeks and the Romans they had to fight and join the military, but this is a new age where people do not have to fight to gain respect or consider themselves worthy. The Greeks and the Romans had to prove themselves by killing each other and taking each other’s armor as a trophy. We don’t have armor to steal from each other so we don’t get the satisfaction of killing someone like the Greeks and Romans did. This is where Thomas Jefferson was wrong there are different morals we have now concerning the fact that it is not ethical to kill people just for the gratification of killing people. Citizens who are in the military gain their respect because they are willing to sacrifice themselves for the betterment of the country. Thomas …show more content…
Concerning the military right now there are a lot of soldiers that are not able to take care of their families because the government is cutting back on the funds for them. The government right now is trying to cut back on the military because they do not have the resources to keep up with the armed services they have now. The government could be wasting their money on something more important than trying to fund a military that does not even want to fight for the country. So by making a whole bunch of people join the military that do not even want to be there and getting paid less than what they make working at an average aquatic center; these citizens would not be too happy about that.

The Greeks and the Romans did not care about the morals of killing people all they wanted was respects and trophies of their enemy’s armor and tell people that they ate part of the persons inside; that was not a moral thing to do, but they did it anyway. Since that time we have discovered that is not a thing that we should do. Thomas Jefferson said the wrong thing because that was just his opinion on war and soldiers who are willing to fight the draft is to get all of the people who are not willing to fight for the country and make them fight for something they might not even believe in. Reinstating the draft is not the right thing to do just because we are in a new age where it is not necessary to have that many people join the military, mostly because there is no way the government is going to be able to pay for wages for everyone who would be instated. Having citizens fight who do not want to be there is a massive risk to take when you are actually out in the field because you do not know what they are going to do, they could just leave the other team members behind not caring about
