CCC BlocksCounter interp– National service includes any nationwide community service program–topic lit proves that the CCC is topical"National Service Programs."International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences. .Encyclopedia.com.Accessed 15 Aug. 2017. In his 2002 State of the Union address, President George W. Bush called on American citizens to donate four thousand hours to community service—the equivalent of two working years—over their lifetime. The U.S. government has supported volunteering and community service in various ways since the 1930s. One of the ways is to establish national service programs that engage citizens in helping other people. The termnational servicetraditionally refers to a nationwide program of public/community work in which citizens, mostly young people, servefor one or two years at a subminimum wage to help the community as well as themselves(Gorham 1992; Moskos 1988). In countries such as Israel, Korea, Austria, Singapore, and Turkey, young people (mostly male) are required to serve in the military. In other countries, for example, Germany, (male) citizens may choose whether they want to serve in the armed forces orparticipate in alternative national service programs. In the mid-1960s, many programs in the United States began to engage a broader array of the population, including students and senior citizens, in a variety of activities.The first large-scale national service program in the United States was developed during theGreat Depressionof the 1930s. In March 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC essentially was an employment/welfare program that provided basic education and income for young, unemployed people. The program employed over three million participants until1942, when capable young men were no longer available because of the advent ofWorld War II(19391945) (Perry 2004). The Roosevelt Administration also created the Works Progress Administration in May 1935, offering work to more than 3.4 million of the unemployed by the next year (Indiana University 2006)Prefer the definition 1. Predictability – national service besides military is predictable; there is no way the neg has never seen an aff that doesn’t have to do with the military (ask what aff he runs)2. Reasonability – if the resolution truly had to be about the military, the resolution would’ve been written to say military service or armed service rather than national service
3. Topic lit – topic literature checks- basic research on the history of the topic literally solves for the aff’s problems. Even if the aff argues that there’s more topic lit on compulsory military service, there’s just as much topic lit about the environment and citizen involvement with the environment. Also, the CCC is literally part ofa bill in the senate.
