It's called taking one principle from one issue and applying it to either past issues of the same sort, or different and current issues. It's an academic exercise. My question was the former. If the draft in one war was slavery, why was the draft NOT slavery in a different war? My original question was a similar exercise. If taxation by government is theft, why is obligatory conscription not stealing someone's life?
