Got this idea while watching Starship Troopers the other day. As those of you who have seen the film will know to become a 'citizen' you have to serve a minimum time in the armed forces. Would this work in modern Britian? If you want to be a politician, Doctor, go to Uni or vote etc then you have to serve for 3, 4 years in the forces. I think this would work because at the moment any idiot can vote, it doesn't matter if he has done nothing except sell drugs all of his life he still automatically get the right to vote. Discuss Sorry if this has already been done but did a quick search and didn't find it.
