The Death of American Citizenship

“The American Founders institutionalized the best of a long Western tradition of representative government, with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.  These contracts outlined the rare privileges and responsibilities of new American citizens.  Yet the concept of citizenship is being assaulted on the premodern side by the legal blending of mere residency with citizenship.”  Victor Davis Hanson, “The Death of American Citizenship,” National Review, 9/26/2019.
