About "Government Legitimacy (NEG)"
This is a deceptively simple case that hones in on a very easy-to-understand logical chain:
Government action is inherently violent.
–> Violent government action should only be used when absolutely necessary.
–> Compulsory national service is a violent government action.
–> Compulsory national service is unnecessary.
Therefore, compulsory national service should not be implemented.
This logical chain is easy to prove, and you should continue to fall back on it under negative pressure. However, I’d work on showing how compulsory national service is not only unnecessary, but harmful. Your application of South Korea shows this masterfully.
The reason I recommend the last part of this tactic is because it demonstrates WHY government should be limited to necessary actions. It shows how even good governments can go bad when they are forced to do unnecessary actions.
