Fictional place, fictional time... You get a draft notice that you have to report for military service. Military service is required for advanced citizenship and brings with it significant bennefits. When you report to the draft center you are given two choices. 1. You can serve in the military, probably in a non-combat support role for 8 years and then you are out with your advanced citizen ship and benefits (free health care, educational programs etc...). 2. They can perform a brain scan and using your DNA, the scan, and siginifcant genetic engineering create a clone of you. Your thoughts and memories and personality are duplicated in the clone though the clone is genetically alterered to fit a combat role. At the end of the scan and sampling you are released having completed your service requirments in a day. But you are not granted advanced citizenship and do not have the associated benefits. Which would you choose? And you have to choose one, there are no other options. I am interested in your thoughts and opinions on this concept, both negative and positive. Would you mind have a clone of yourself? Would it bother you to know that "YOU" are out there fighting and dying? Any other issues? I am working on a book and I would like to get opinions from outside my mindset on the ramifications of this type of program.
