Citizenship

I believe most of us are citizens of the country we grew up in, and it is probably where most of us continue to reside for convenience and what not. However, if you were free to choose your country of citizenship where would you wish to be?

Could you elaborate on your meaning? Is this a "wishing"-sort-of thread, in that if we could, ideally, be recognized as another nationality, what would that country be?


I'm not trying to be finnicky or cut you down at all, but I do find the query sort of patronizing, as my family and I worked quite hard to obtain my US citizenship, and along with that, I earned two more after the fact (English / UK and Spanish). In total, I have 5 real citizenships, 3 of which I earned through studying the nation's history and politics, 1 which was given to me at the time for just "being" (where I was born), and another, which was "rewarded" to me for working and contributing towards a project in a foreign country. Also, I had to be a resident in each of those country's for a set time period (it varies from place to place), but as I was living there each time (or working there), it was offered to me by friends that I apply for citizenship, so I'm not just "sitting on your arse, toilng away with nothing to show for it but raw hands and a pint in your belly!".

Last bit: I'm currently still a resident in Argentina, but I think that it (has?) expires soon. I'll have to check the card.

I haven't ever given this any thought. I've never had to work for my citizenship, perhaps I would view it differently if there was a need.

I recently learned that if my husband wanted something more substantial than an internship in Denmark, he would need to learn the language and apply for citizenship. Seems like a lot of hassle when one could find work elsewhere.

I suppose if I traveled someplace that spoke to my soul so deeply that it merited a move, citizenship would be something that I would strive for.

I'm probably wrong, but citizenship seems like a concept that will die out within my lifetime.

I like the UK, there is something in common with the weather, the wildlife, the people, the police, the army and the ecomomy.

None of them kill people very often.

If I were not British, I like Scandinavia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, or Canada.

The US scares me.

I'm not sure whether choosing a country would make me lose the citizenship I already have.

I'm French, and came back to live here fairly recently after having spent most of my life in the US.
As it is now, I can't choose between one or the other. I intend to travel all my life, at least once every 5 years, a different city or country.
I think France makes the most sense in terms of social benefits, quality of life, etc. The US has more opportunities for a fulfilling, succesful career. I consider myself a world citizen, french by birth, but willing to go experience a new culture anytime.

Most of the time I don't want to be a citizen of anyplace but America.

However, I absolutely love both France and Italy. I have often recently thought that if I ever do have children I'd want them to go to elementary and high school in western Europe somewhere because I think the public school systems there are, for the most part, more open minded, culturally diverse, and generally provide a great education (not to mention the decline of a lot of the public schools around here).

I guess I shouldn't find it odd that so many Americans are not interested in living elsewhere but I have to wonder if it's just a matter of being comfortable with what you know or (to put it another way) uncomfortable with what you don't.

This is not a bash on American but rather an honest question.

Location: Rarely, if ever, here or there, but always in transition
First off, I'm not sure, exactly, when it was that I suddenly became enemy #1 to certain individuals here, but my initial post, directed towards gd, was in the hopes that she may elaborate on what, specifically, she was looking to extract from us, in terms of a response. I'd have hated this to just become another word association, in which members state a country, just for the sake of fulfilling your request, and without any elaboration as to why. That's not a discussion. It's something akin to 'simon asking'.

I don't believe I am at fault in the way it seemed patronizing, (1st and 3rd defintions, American English Heritage) at least when I first encountered the question, as to it promoting another nation, whether you know loads of history about it or not, and on the negative side, one would perhaps disparage their own resident country in the process, if only incidentally, by stating "I'd much rather live there for state reasons here". Is that not a fair question?

This is a double-edged sword in terms of bringing positive awareness to other nations, yet also sometimes brings about the negatives, on why where we are now living does not seem to satisfy us anymore. From what I read, and perhaps interpreted from the "wish" part, (keyword) it set my mind's example to something that was not so pleasant.

Keen example: it's not unlike the scene from The Last King of Scotland, where General Amin encounters McAvoy's character, and upon realizing his nationality states something to the effect that if he were not a proud Uguandan, and were able to freely choose where he could have born, he would most certainly have chosen Scotland (as he admired Scotland for its long resilience and resistance towards total English rule). Perhaps I was wrong to assume that was the go of it, and others' might follow suit to it, but that is precisely the reason I took the time, and general conscientious effort, to make sure you did not misunderstand my follow-up reply to please, shed some light on your initial meaning. It seems I failed at that, as once again, you have miscontrued a genuine attempt by my person to more fully understand what you'd ideally like as a member's response here. I had no idea I had to account for such sensitivity when I thought out and submitted my nonplussed, but honest, inquiry.



Next, and I'm still at loss on how I've gotten on your bad side, warreagl, other than an off-handed commentary I made recently in your game thread about "stating the #1 pop hits from the date you were born". Now, I won't apologize, as I did nothing to disparage you, nor intentionally did I mean to discredit your topic, or do anything other than post a follow-up link of a thread that was only "similar" (as stated). Is that anything to get so bent out of shape for, though, I ask? The one I am sorry for is that I left my reply terse enough for you to infer and exract a meaning from within it that I did not intend for whasoever. I merely should have stated that within that other particular thread's discussion, there were accompanying websites that showed varying musical genres for specific dates, and in other specific geographic countries. More charts for those who had stated they wanted to see what they may have contained.

To elaborate: In most countries, your citizenship is a lifetime guarantee and certification that you are a member of this country's boundaries, communities, and institution of being. There are exceptions to that rule, though, and also some countries that actually go out of their way to not even really recognize some of their inhabitants, and their rights.

I also hopefully agree with the senitments of genuinegirly, in that, perhaps one day, there will no longer be a need for such relatively resticting national lines of demarcation amongst us all. I have always been a hopping and wandering sort of soul, initially not by choice, from whence I was younger, to when I had to travel for business relations and agreements; but, now, I do it just for the sheer thrill of getting to know my own world history, firsthand, and also increasing my awaresness to this greatly expansive habitation of ours. It's just there for us, but as it is, most are simply content to know it is there, what it serves, in rudimentary knowledge, and let it be, without any further thoughts. A textbook or 44-minute TV special can only get you so far.

It may seem hokey, but I do love my country. For all its problems, I think the United States is the best country on earth; it's an amazing place full of the world's peoples and those of us that live here should take more time to experience the far corners of it before we decide that "it all sucks" and that we'd be better off elsewhere. I haven't seen much, but I can say that Chicago IL is not Burlington VT, Arlington TX is not Richmond VA. It's crazy different. Such a vast, heterogeneous country demands exploration. I mean, c'mon... we've got Yellowstone Park, the I'm-Not-Crying-In-Public monuments of Washington DC, the Hershey's chocolate factory, we're home to cruiser motorcycles, and the biggest rubber band ball in the world.

I can't quite place why, but this thought makes me kinda sad. Citizenship is important not only as a method to organize people (a convenient temporal-spatial cubby, if you will), but it's something that should encourage development in a region. It doesn't have to be about race or religion... but just... taking pride in a place because you're from there, your family is from there, you've worked hard there, etc. I have to believe that place matters.

Seems patriotism, as an active religion, is hurtin' pretty bad these days. There is no great crusade and our selfish, obese hands lay idle.

This is not a bash on American but rather an honest question.

You could also think of it in a lazy man's view: I'd have to learn everything all over again. The culture, customs, language, social norms, and a whole new brand of people. To someone who is more "I have to get out now", then they're probably going to be more open and willing to learning a whole new system.

The way I see it, it all comes down to one thing: Will I be better off if I lived somewhere new?

Dude, you can own shit like the AR-15. What more do you need? Sure, you'd have to "cull" 95% of your collection, but surely there are still a few decent items you can use with the proper documentation.

It's a trade-off. But, hey, we a HUGE playground for using such things.

I'm not interested in giving up my US citizenship. I don't think that any other country will do me any better or worse, each has it's drawbacks.

I'd like to be expatriated in another country again. It was fun to be in Singapore for awhile. I'd like to be able to move from country to country if I could. I have too many to list, Iceland is definitely on there.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... dude, Canadian gun laws are like Amish porn: not satisfying to most people who've seen real porn.

What's the point of having guns if I can't own a Demars Streetsweeper and a Penn Arms 37mm launcher? WE HAVE NEEDS.

Kidding, actually. All I need is my Savage turn bolt, a good pump action 12g, and a couple of sixguns. Everything else is cool guy toys.

My parents are Polish, and moved to Sweden in the 80's to escape the communist dictatorship that had plagued Poland their whole lives. I was born in Sweden, and have lived here my whole life (20 years now). My biggest dream has always been to move to the US or Canada, and I still intend to do everything I can to obtain a citizenship there, as soon as I finish my studies here.

My first real post here, by the way! (:
