We wear many hats in life.
Often neglected is the Citizen Hat …
What is a Citizen?
Citizen Hat – 30 pages (give or take) describing what you can and should do, as a citizen, to run the government. It is your government; it is okay to own it.
Guide to Ethical Behavior – every citizen must engage in ethical behavior for civilization to survive. John Adam’s famous quote that self-government was “only for a moral and religious people” has been echoed by everyone from Andrew Jackson to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others. Perhaps Benjamin Franklin put it most succinctly: "[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom." This is a commonsense guide for self-government.
Citizenship Triangle – three pages describing the three “sides” of rights, the “triangle” on which exercising your rights depends.
AMERICA! – Award-winning film by citizens, on the love of their country. This is an example of Citizens wearing their Hats.
What is a Government?
