Down with dirty hippies!

Angrily sighing leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. Did Yoda teach you nothing?

The Democratic Republic of Thalasus wrote:Massive popular disapproval and international sanctions forced the program to be disbanded. Now, rather than orphan children being selected and forced to train to become a better soldier, it's orphans who are thirteen years of age or older voluntarily signing up to serve in non-combat positions, such as simple vehicle maintenance and refueling. It's a much better system, with fewer opportunities for deadly error and increased military cohesion and productivity.

Wow, your way was way harsher.
The Pentagrian Armed Forces' 'Special weaPons (Arming, Recruitment, Training, And iNdoctrination)' program exclusively uses unwanted children.
(It is generally understood that 'Spartan' was backronymed to create the program name, because military people love their Greco-Roman references, thereby explaining the incredibly awkward acronym formation.)

The way the program works is that prior to any abortion being carried out, the clinic schedules an appointment with a recruitment officer, where a generous payment (entirely to mitigate the inconvenience of the pregnancy) is offered to instead bring the child to term and enlist him in the SPARTAN program. This was mostly done in order to serve as a 'humane' abortion source, such that individuals opposed to abortion for whatever reason could still, in essence, get one. It also keeps conservatives happy, since the recruitment officer is technically a 'counselor' to 'advise against' the abortion. It also helps keep healthcare costs low, and reduce future childbirth risk that may come about as a result of the abortion.
Some citizens protest this as tantamount to slavery, but lawyers have been very careful with the terms of the contracts, and it's legally indentured servitude, with salaries being paid into an investment account until their contract terminates at age 30, at which point they can re-up for a 10 or 20 year period, or find other employment. Our terms are clearly generous, since the 20-year re-up rate is 98%, with the remainder opting for the 10-year re-up. Only 3 people have left the service at their contract termination date. One of them currently heads up the Ministry of War, another is the head of BP State Arms, and a third is a renowned jazz singer.
Yeah, we're not really sure what was up with his indoctrination protocols.

Well, I may have oversimplified the program when I was explaining what changed. Promising candidates were selected from among abandoned or unwanted children and were started in military training. They could leave legally if they wanted to, nearly all of them did not. All but a few candidates were selected while they were very young (5-6 years of age) and began training and indoctrination immediately, so they viewed the military and their base as their family and saw everything about civilian life as something strange and other.

Needless to say, this is causing massive headaches for our pediatric psychiatrists right now as, since we have completely dissolved the program, they are not permitted to re-join combat roles in the military until they are 18.

So, really, it's not that much different. It's just more loosely institutionalized, and parents don't receive any benefits for giving their child to the military

Of course, that's all only relevant if you believe the program is over. The missing/supposedly dead SPARTANs, dubbed the NE-13 (ie the Non-Existant 13), are of considerable interest to many conspiracy theorist types.

I think I'm going to add an incident sub forum so we can get a NS RP going on the forums. Any ideas for an international incident to start with?

Hey Ashton...

Clearly the ongoing '5 cubicle' crisis, which is almost, but not quite, inside Feminamia.

Why waste money on useless things like shoes? The blasted things are so restrictive. Men are forced to wear shoes 24/7 here and they certainly complain about aching feet and all that. Whatever, though.

Not on purpose! Please don't die, that would be a horrible shame!
