Significance For Society Today.

Jay Bear's insight:

The government has enough power too make people fight at war. The COs all have their own beliefs. Most of them had their beliefs as there religion. There are many different types of COs. There are COs that does not have to be violent or nunviolent in every situation. Then theres some whos required to kill or train to kill in the military. The COs that were chosen were not permitted in the U.S. The law was strict too. Back in the day the COs worked in hospitals and in programs operated by religious organizations. Health services was very important to. Even some selective COs believe that the conditions for a just war can no longer be met today. Most people also thought that the government had people go to war just cause.

CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION

CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION | Conscientious Objection | Scoop.it
Jay Bear's insight:

These here are multiple speeches from multiple people. One man spoke about the human right of conscientious objection. One man sent a letter to exprssing his interest about the NYC (National Youth Council) to handle some type of issues. These speeches all have a point. Their not all talking about exactly the same thing but these speeches all have something to do with the conscientious objection. In one speech Michael was talking about the CO's worldwide even. Almost everyone of these speeches mentions the military services too.

Significance For Society Today | Conscientious Objection | Scoop.it
Jay Bear's insight:

The CO is about a man who has refused to join the military service. They refuse because of there moral or religious beliefs. The government has control over who gos into the war. All of the people agreed that war was wrong, but the government had the power to force people into war. Most people had took what ever they believed in as their religion. And other people had just came to their own beliefs. When people hear about the CO they ask questions. They want to know what is necessary to qualify as a CO with the government. There are rules involved with this process. The men who will be in the service will register at 18. The men who does not register will be put in jail. Plus the  CO provisions like this have been a part of American law since the time of the colonies.

Conscientious Objection Map
Jay Bear's insight:

This here is an Conscientious Objection map. This map is the European Union in 2010, only 4 years ago. There was a report made on the conscientious objection in 2009-2010. There are or should be more maps for the CO and they all should describe something different. On this colorful map down below it gives the information about what the colors are/mean. The map was called the cartedeurope. These maps doesn't really give a lot of info but it's helpful to some people who would like to learn more about the CO.

Israel's Druze conscientious objectors

Israel's Druze conscientious objectors | Conscientious Objection | Scoop.it
Though over-represented in the Israeli military, some men from the Druze community refuse to serve.
Jay Bear's insight:
"Though over-represented in the Israeli military, some men from the Druze community refuse to serve."

This is also based off the past. This explains how a young man getting out of jail at 18 and refuses to register he agree to go back in jail. In northern Israe there are 22 villages where there were over 100,000 Druze living. The government was explaining how the Druze was apart of them and how they should be treated like them as well. And "Today, 83 percent of Druze enlist in the Israeli army, compared to 72 percent of Israeli Jews." The Druze were also aprt of the millitary.

Center on Conscience & War

Center on Conscience & War | Conscientious Objection | Scoop.it
Jay Bear's insight:

This here is a letter basically explaing how men at 18 have to register. But some males may feel conscientiously opposed to cooperating with draft registration. They want the government to recognize their CO beliefs as well. When men register they register as a conscientious objector so they cant have reference. The time for them to get drafted take a while, i think thats why they have them register at 18 though. All men have to photocopy their registration papers, honestly i dont know why yet either. So basically this letter is just more information about men having to register at 18 and how if they don't they go to jail for at least 5 years.
