One thought on “Mandatory Volunteerism and the GIVE Act of 2009

  1. Taken to an extreme, such a “voluntary/mandatory” service program with nationalism overtones reminds of past abuses of public trust and nationalistic fervor–like the Hitler Youth Corps.

    The devil is in the details of the GIVE Act, and the indoctrination provisions of this program, including restrictions on participants of their 1st Amendment freedoms lead me to suspect this as more oriented toward taking away freedoms than promoting service.

    It should be called the TAKE Act: Trash America, Keep Everything.
