People who are forced into something (draftees) will be the least effective, while those with external motivation (money in the case of the mercenaries) will be effective to a point. However , those with the internal drive , who have signed on because their hearts are in it, will rise to the top. Do something that you want, no love to do and the money will follow. Most of us will not have the same job in the near or distant future. why toll away at a job that is not personally rewarding. If you only work for money in the long run it will show most likely at work and at home, and is money worth ruining your life or health over. I for one think not.
The mercenaries will always defeat the draftees, but the
volunteers will crush them both. Chuck Noll
