How did the writings of alfred t mahan encourage united states imperialism
it seems that forty or fifty years ago the idea of what was a ‘good citizen’ was clearer than today.
‘good citizens” were individuals who did not pursue only their own interest, but also felt responsible for the fate of the whole society. they followed public affairs, were involved in political campaigns, voted, participated in voluntary organizations and were law-abiding.
today few people have confidence in the political system.
in your opinion, then, what does it mean to be a ‘good citizen’ these days? is this concept already part of the past?
