The future increase in percentage of citizens over 65 and associated larger outlays for social security will bring about a reording of priorities that will drastically cut that portion of national spending allocated to defense. A slowing population growth and, ultimately, a stagnating or decreasing population will prevent the economy from absorbing the additional costs. Defense cuts will require a dramatic change in U..S. strategies as the nation pulls back to a Fortress America. A partial alternative to such a move would be a very great increase in defense productivity brough about by a return to cmpulsory military service, preferably a national service for all youth, at nominal pay scales.
