Make Them Volunteer!

John Derbyshire (who else?) points out our future lord and master's desire to use corvée labor in the interest of The State:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.
Perhaps Obama can get his youth brigades to go around their neighborhoods to make sure every home has a properly displayed picture of the Dear Leader hanging in a clean, prominent position.
My favorite bit is having seniors 'volunteer'. "You want Social Security? Get out there and break some rocks!"
