Barry, thank you for reading and responding. Can you clarify who you are writing about when you say: “So I’m wondering about the power I give to those who might “dismiss” me for what I do or don’t do.” Who are you referring to?

Also, are you saying that you chose to NOT use your “legitimate” draft deferment and instead intentionally refused to participate in the system entirely, and thus were sent to jail?
