The US Draft and the Threat of Gen Z: What BIPOC Women Need to Know



As tensions continue to rise between the US and Russia, the possibility of a military draft in the United States is becoming a topic of concern for many, including the younger generation, specifically Gen Z. In this blog post, we delve into how the draft could impact BIPOC individuals, the potential for drafting women, and the overall threat faced by the nation. Ironically the people who want to draft young people see them primarily as a threat. The fact that Gen Z are on the verge of not being able to need government and the system for anything including food, shelter, water, and even education is a threat to the world power system.


Gen Zers understand that with a tiny home and land you can grow your own food, utilize solar/wind and home battery for power for home and EV car or truck, use AWG machines for free water without pollutants. Work remotely with computer tech and set up online stores and bitcoin investment, and access medical care by supporting free healthcare initiatives. This would force the government to stop aggressive military actions globally and instead empower the US citizens and improve the infrastructure and quality of life for all instead of the rich and corporate interests.


"GEN-Zers...perhaps more than any prior generation; some call them Plurals because of their pluralist nature. They’re the most racially and ethnically diverse ... They’re more likely to identify as LGBTQ: 20% of them, compared with 11% of millennials and only 3% among older people. They’re averse to binaries, be it man-vs.-woman or citizen-vs.-illegal. A quarter are Latinx. They’re less likely to be immigrants than millennials, but more likely to be children of immigrants — cross-border in culture and identity." (LA TIMES Jean Guerrerro)


The US Draft: A Looming Possibility

The idea of a draft, a compulsory enlistment of individuals for military service, is not a new one. However, in recent times, with the escalating tensions between the US and Russia, the concept of the draft has once again entered public discourse. With Gen Z comprising a significant portion of the population, the potential impact of a draft on this generation is a critical concern.


How Will BIPOC Communities Be Affected?

For the BIPOC community, the prospect of a draft raises several questions and fears. Historically, minority communities have shouldered a disproportionate burden in times of conflict. The draft has often been seen as an avenue through which young BIPOC individuals are sent to the frontlines, facing higher risks and bearing the brunt of casualties.


Draft for Women: Breaking Barriers?


Another aspect to consider is the inclusion of women in any future draft. While historically, the draft has been exclusively for men, the landscape is changing. The possibility of drafting women is a contentious issue, raising questions about equality, representation, and the role of women in the military.


The Russian Threat: A Shadow Looms

Amidst discussions about the draft, the overarching concern remains the perceived threat posed by Russia. In an era of cyber warfare, disinformation campaigns, and geopolitical tensions, the specter of a direct military conflict between the US and Russia is a daunting one.


Looking to the Future

As Gen Z navigates the complexities of a world fraught with uncertainties, discussions around the draft and national security are more relevant than ever. It is essential for individuals to stay informed, engage in dialogues about peace and conflict, and advocate for policies that uphold human rights and protect vulnerable communities.


In conclusion, the looming threat of a military draft in the US, fueled by tensions with Russia, serves as a reminder of the importance of diplomacy, dialogue, and preparedness. As conversations continue and decisions are made, it is crucial for all individuals, especially BIPOC individuals and women, to be aware of the potential implications and actively participate in shaping the future of national security policies.


Let us stand united in the face of uncertainty, advocating for a world where peace prevails, and conflicts are resolved through mutual understanding and cooperation. The future of Gen Z and generations to come hinges on the choices we make today. Stay informed, stay engaged, and together, we can build a safer and more inclusive world.
