We should take much more seriously this "We The People" designation. More activism and participation in the affairs of Our Nation should be evident. Just being born here and being a "Consumer" shouldn't earn Us the designation "Citizen".

Citizen should be an involved thing. A socially caring thing. More than just self serving Individual that can only find the time, in their lives, to develope prosperity and parent Families. These activities do build the foundation for Our nation, but more is needed. Much more. Or the nation will not grow into what it could and should be.

It will not achieve "The American Vision", or do its part for the advancement of Humanity.

A Citizen goes beyond self and Family. A True Citizen adds their strengths to community and state. They participate in the decisions and processes that guide Our Nation. 

We cannot have a True Government "Of The People, For The People and BY The People" if We do not daily participate in its development and relationships with the rest of Our World and Humanity. The True Citizen will do these things.

The Way has been prepared. The examples have been set. Each Individual, one by enlightened one, should enter in upon this sacred duty. It can be done in your community and on the internet. It can be done as an expression of Your Best Self and as part of the best of Our Populace. The More the Better.

Just my opinion.

Hi Tim. May I welcome you to this special online community? You seem like a concerned and thoughtful Individual and this is sorely needed. Your courtesy is appreciated too.

I would like to copy and paste most of your response here and then reply within your entries:

Yes Tim. In a "ideal" world without corruption this would indeed make for a fine scenario. One worthy of the effort, in my humble opinion. These elements of "The Vision" are a response to the corrupt world We have and a plea to begin to correct Our Errors. We will not have a "Better World", until more of Us become Better People. I am glad you said "ideal", because that is one of the goals The Vision is about. To ever strive toward the ideal, as Our role in Our Evolution and Our Nation's Evolution. 

 "Born citizenry" is needed in my view, simply because being able to dissent from the status quo should always be seen as a inalienable right without fear of being persecuted."

It is not my intention to interfere with "Born Citizenship", but to add to it...build upon it. To "raise the bar", so to speak. I see "citizenship", as it is today, as not doing the job, of The Vision, that is needed, (again in my humble opinion). The "born citizen" is the entry level position in Our Society. All who might be capable, should use this honor and priviledge , of citizenship, as a starting point for greater and greater excellence of social service in their lives. The "Giving Something Back" to their good part of the world...to help it become More and Better. Of course, all of this has to be defined and established as "High Standards", by "We The People". An incredible and worthy task indeed.

In no way would I seek to persecute the little "c" citizen. Only reward those who go beyond this fortunate beginning.

"If however people are content with their political and economic situation there is certainly need of more community help and volunteerism."

Well said Tim. The good works you mention, is is essential to the actuality and reality achievement of The American Vision. The American Vision will require much greater use of "Volunteerism" and "Community Service" and much less reliance on the almighty dollar...which is part of Our plight today. Not from a habit of self service and greed, but rather from a Spirit Of Service To Others and One's Land. We have been asked repeatedly to achieve this.

"Is there really a American vision or is there only a evolving view of what is actually a human vision."

Ahhh...your instincts are serving you well Sir. There IS the beginning of The American Vision and it IS "Evolving." And of course it is part of Our Species' overall planetary vision. It is just that I prefer to remain focused on America and Its People, to decrease the scope of the "playing field", so to speak and increase the chance of success in this endeavor. I wouldn't know where, or how to begin with all the world, so I do what I can for the Nation Of My Birth...in the Hope that any goodness will spread from here. Even in the "American Dream" of yesterday there is indication of a "Special Destiny"...but it seems to have gotten warped like so many other things in Our Brave New Culture.  Other Individuals may prefer to start with the whole world. I applaud their ambition and might even help if I could.

At this point, I will let you in on a secret. You have earned this inclusion. "The More People Who Help Build The American Vision, the More Success It Will Have." It is a work in progress.

"hmm I don't know but your post got me thinking."

Tim? Share, further, your thoughts please?

"Thanks !" And thank you for your response. It is good to see it.

Hello Daniel :

I know it has been some time since you posted this, but I am new to the community and offer this view.

In a ideal world without corruption that would make for a fine scenario, however with humanity comes the inevitable attempts at tyranny. Born citizenry is needed in my view simply because being able to dissent from the status quo should always be seen as a inalienable right without fear of being persecuted.

If however people are content with their political and economic situation there is certainly need of more community help and volunteerism.

Is there really a American vision or is there only a evolving view of what is actually a human vision.

hmm I don't know but your post got me thinking.

Thanks !

Citizens
