With the investigation by the hand, my purpose of this thesis is to do an analysis of the debate for and against conscription as the way to provide the Armed Forces with personnel. The analysis consists of two parts. For the first I describe the arguments for and against conscription. For the second I test the proof ability of the arguments. In the last part I both test how tenable the arguments are and how relevant the arguments are. The result shows that the argumentation for abolish conscription is weak. The only strong argument, written by the authors to the reservation, is that the argumention for abolish conscription is build upon a number of vague assumptions. (Less)
