A citizen is.......

Citizenship is the status of a person recognized under the law as being a legal member of a sovereign state. A person may have multiple citizenships.

Nationality is often used as a synonym for citizenship. You can change your citizenship but not your nationality.

 

Good citizenship is sometimes viewed as requiring both intellectual skills (such as critical thinking) and participatory skills (such as deliberating civilly, monitoring the government, building coalitions, managing conflict peacefully and fairly, and petitioning, speaking or testifying before public bodies).

 

There are multiple ways to be a citizen

1.  Parents are citizens If one or both of a person's parents are citizens of a given state, then the person may have the right to be a citizen of that state as well. 

2. Born within a country Some people are automatically citizens of the state in which they are born. 

3. Marriage to a citizen Many countries fast-track naturalization based on the marriage of a person to a citizen. Countries which are destinations for such immigration often have regulations to try to detect sham marriages where a citizen marries a non-citizen typically for payment, without them having the intention of living together.

4. Naturalization grants citizenship to people who have entered the country legally, been granted permit to stay, or been granted political asylum. Naturalization is subject to conditions which may include being in a country for a set period of time, passing a test demonstrating reasonable knowledge of the language or way of life of the host country, good conduct (no serious criminal record) and moral character (such as drunkenness, or gambling), vowing allegiance to their new state or its ruler and renouncing their prior citizenship. Some states allow dual citizenship and do not require naturalized citizens to formally renounce any other citizenship. Lottery immigration, Dreamers, Chain migration.

A political spectrum is a system of classifying different political positions upon one or more geometric axes that symbolize independent political dimensions.

 

Right-wing political thinking holds that certain social orders and hierarchies are inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable, typically supporting this position on the basis of natural laweconomics, or tradition. Hierarchy and inequality may be viewed as natural results of traditional social differences or the competition in market economies. The term right-wing can generally refer to "the conservative or reactionary section of a political party or system".

Right libertarians strongly support private property rights, and defend unequal "distribution" of natural resources and private property. 

Right-libertarianism political philosophies that advocate negative rights, and a radical reversal of the modern welfare state.

 

Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy. It typically involves a concern for those in society whom its adherents perceive as disadvantaged relative to others as well as a belief that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished.

Leftist economic beliefs range from Keynesian economics and the welfare state through industrial democracy and the social market to nationalization of the economy and central planning

Lesson 1       Conservative, Centrist, or Liberal?

1. Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs

Take this quiz on where you fall if liberal or conservative.

 

Liberals believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all.  It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights.  Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need.  Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve problems.

 

Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense.  Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals.  Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

 

NOTE: The terms “left” and “right” define opposite ends of the political spectrum.  In the United States, liberals are referred to as the left or left-wing and conservatives are referred to as the right or right-wing.  On the U.S. political map, blue represents the Democratic Party (which generally upholds liberal principles) and red represents the Republican party (which generally upholds conservative principles).

1. What are examples of the 9 elements you can find of digital citizenship? Here is one

We've been following the case of Justin Carter, the Texas teen who's been jailed near San Antonio since February. It started when he posted a Facebook message saying he would go "shoot up a kindergarten." Austin Police arrested him and seized his computer and a grand jury indicted him in April on a charge of making a terroristic threat. Because a judge set bail at $500,000, the 19-year-old can't get out to await trial.

"He's really sorry," said Jack Carter, Justin's father. "He just got caught up in the moment ... and didn't think about the implications."

While Carter's example is extreme and, as police contend, illegal, he isn't alone in posting something on social media and later feeling deep regret. The relationship was the focus of a 2011 study called "I Regretted the Minute I Pressed Share," by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. The Carter case presents a timely opportunity to revisit what the researchers found:

Anthony Weiner congressman from New York, with online behavior Rocket, privates, Johnson, 23 months in Jail for sexting
