As the war became more unpopular with the public, the principal source of animus against the War was the Draft, the notion that no matter how you felt, you could be drafted, inducted, and forced to go fight. In-country like the United States, dedicated principally to the idea that you should be able to do whatever you want with your life, do you have should society and the state possess the ability to compel you into military service even if you object? Or, looking at it from the reverse angle, should you be able to avoid responsibility for defending the country where you are able to do what you please, that is to say, do you have civic duties that no one should be able to avoid?
