quitable principles of national service when our country is fighting for her life; and this obvious truth should be recognised as a matter of course by every true democrat. A genuinely democratic people, proud of their past history, and 杭州足浴会所 determined to hold their own against Germany’s blood-lust, would have divided her male population into classes, and would have summoned each class to the colours at a given date. Those who were essential to the leading trades of the country would have been exempted from 杭州用口的SPA war service in the field, as they are in Germany; the younger classes would have been called up first, and no class would have been withdrawn from its civil work until the military authorities were ready to train it. Instead of this quiet and dignified justice, this admirable and quiet unity of a free 杭州品茶推荐 people inspired by a fine patriotism, we have dazed ourselves with shrieking posters and a journalistic clamour against ‘shirkers,’ and loud abuse of professional footballers; and now an advertisement in the newspapers assures the women of England that they must do 杭州桑拿按摩网 what the State declines to achieve, that they must send their men and boys into the field since their country is fighting for her life. What cowardice! Why impose this voluntary duty on women when the State is too ignoble to look upon her own duty in this matter as a moral 杭州丝袜会所 obligation?
“The one virtue of voluntary enlistment is that it should be voluntary—a free choice between a soldier’s life and a civilian’s life.

And it is also a compulsion that presses unequally upon the people, for its methods are without system. Many families send their all into the fighting line; many decline to be patriotic. A woman said to me yesterday: ‘My husband has gone, and I am left 杭州丝袜诱惑 with his business. Why should he go? Other women in my neighbourhood have their husbands still, and it’s rubbish to say that the country is in danger when the Government allows and encourages this injustice in recruiting. If the country is in danger all the men should fight—if their trade work is unnecessary 杭州家庭式养生会所 to the armies.”
“This point of view is right; the wrong one is advocated by you and by other Radicals who dislike the justice of democratic equality.—Yours truly, WALTER SHAW SPARROW.”
 There have been bitter complaints of this artful way of getting recruits, 杭州萧山夜网 as a boy ‘sniggles’ trout. The following letter to the Times (April 21, 1915) voices a very widely spread sense of injustice:
“SIR—Will you give me the opportunity to ask a question, which I think you will agree is important? When the Circular to Householders was issued, 杭州龙凤网站首页 many heads of families gave in their names on the assumption that they would be called
up on the last resort, and under circumstances in which no patriotic man could refuse his help. Married men with large families are now being called up apparently without the slightest regard to their home circumstances. 浙江杭州龙凤 Many of the best of them
