The quality of military service would be far from compromised, especially as all incoming men and women would be subjected to the same training as those who volunteer; this sentiment is all the more true when considering that both volunteers and those serving under a mandatory draft enter with the same baseline knowledge. Moreover, the military would be strengthened through the sheer amount of men and women available to participate in war and defense strategies. This, in turn, would also ensure that all of a country and its citizens would be protected from direct threats. Additionally, a mandatory draft would even promote peace and stability. First, more individuals allow a stronger national defense. Second, issues regarding war and peace move from the periphery of national discourse to the center as more people are involved. And the only way to do such a thing is through the draft.
