Altruism in action.

“I pledge to be a servant to our president and all mankind.”  – Truly scary call for Christian style sacrifice. 

This evil collectivist approach to ethics and politics has never worked and will never work.

I like the way they talk about eradicating slavery in the same breath as implying that citizens should serve their country and their great leader, Obama.  The USA is getting scarier by the day. 

If Obama has his way “volunteering” and “scarficing” will in the future be strongly encouraged by the law. (even though this would mean that it wasn’t volunteering at all).   eg/ College credits for completing “volunteer” programs – approved by the government no doubt. 

Incidentally, how off putting is it when hollywood actors advertise their ignorance and stupiditiy in the political arena?

Individuals are not in debt to the state (the state survives by forcibly taking private capital). 
Individuals have not moral duty to serve any collective or higher power.

In addition, this call to volunteerism is impractical and will hurt the economy: (even in it’s best possible form where this service remains genuinely voluntary and bureacracy remains limited).
