Insightful comment on this posting:
Has anyone else noticed how "taxpayer" has routinely replaced "citizen" in political rhetoric and reporting? Is this a deliberate debasement of citizenship rights that signals the cultural acceptance of a rigid class system with multiple tiers based on income and race? Is this the logical extension of Republican hero, Margaret Thatcher's maxim: "There is no such thing as society"? Is this what it means to live in a Homeland rather than a Nation?
