Conscription, also known as drafting, is a law that the government made for people to go to war. This law stated that anyone who was old enough and was able to fight in the war had to go, whether they wanted to go or not. People thought conscription was very beneficial, I on the other hand disagree. Personally, I do not think conscription is a good idea.

What should we bargain in our education and what content should we write into the textbook to prevent the following generation from waging war?

Even though there is support to have these migrants resettled, there is a major pushback against refugees going into Europe and the United States.

If our country listens to the fear spreading around the world today, then the people who will suffer will be the Syrian Refugees. Elizabeth Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, argues, “We face a choice, a choice to lead the world by example, or to turn our backs to the threats and suffering around us” , which clearly exposes the fact that if we succumb to fear, not only we will turn our back on the refugees, but so will many other countries (Warren Video).
