Le National Service

Recommended Posts

The real reason. Can't think why they think there may be a cohesion problem.

The goal of this new-style national service, the government says, is to encourage young French citizens to take part in the life of the nation, and promote social cohesion.

...by forcing angry, disaffected inner city youths with no loyalty to their host nation into military training? What could possibly go wrong?

The young have to take too much shit.  They're apparently responsible for them not having houses, grade inflation, the universities being crap and probably everything else.  IMO the real problem lies with everyone else, not the young.  I say do the 'young must do national service' thing, but also mandate that there's a lottery for everyone else to do 6 months national service as well (weighted so that by the time people reach 60 they'd definitely have had to do one session of national service).  Then you'd see how popular the idea is.

might reduce unemployment figures as well.

Any such reduction is quite incidental and definitely not the main reason this is happening.

It's hardly worthy of the name "national service"; it's one month doing something which reading the below could include helping in the local charity shop.

Big deal.

 

 

The first phase is a mandatory one-month placement with a focus on civic culture, which the government says will "enable young people to create new relationships and develop their role in society".

Voluntary teaching and working with charities are among the options being looked at, alongside traditional military preparation with the police, fire service or army.

The second phase is a voluntary placement of at least three months and up to a year, in which young people will be encouraged to serve "in an area linked to defence and security" - but again, they could opt to carry out volunteer work linked to heritage, the environment or social care.

Another one, this is not from my account.

 

Something's seriously wrong with dosbods set up when some weirdo can create a duplicate account.

It's not quite a duplicate, just different enough to get past the sign-up checking software and close enough to cause trouble on the site.
