The right of every American to first-class citizenship is the most important issue of our time. ~ Jackie Robinson
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Jackie Robinson
Citizenship comes first today in our crowded world ...
No man can enjoy the privileges of education and thereafter
with a clear conscience break his contract with society.
To respect that contract is to be mature, to strengthen it is to be a good citizen,
to do more than your share under it is noble. ~ Isaiah Bowman
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Isaiah Bowman
We need a new kind of citizenship, so that we can see citizens as themselves earning the rank of patriot because of their involvement in their community affairs ... We as a society need to be encouraging people to focus not just on individual wants but on serving the larger community. ~ Paul Wellstone
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Paul Wellstone
I am losing my Soviet citizenship, I do not cease to be a Russian poet. I believe that I will return. Poets always return in flesh or on paper. ~ Joseph Brodsky
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Joseph Brodsky
The paradox of identity liberalism is that it paralyzes the capacity to think and act in a way that would actually accomplish the things it professes to want. It is mesmerized by symbols: achieving superficial diversity in organizations, retelling history to focus on marginal and often minuscule groups, concocting inoffensive euphemisms to describe social reality, protecting young ears and eyes already accustomed to slasher films from any disturbing encounter with alternative viewpoints. Identity liberalism has ceased being a political project and has morphed into an evangelical one. The difference is this: evangelism is about speaking truth to power. Politics is about seizing power to defend the truth…

If liberals hope ever to recapture America's imagination and become a dominant force across the country, it will not be enough to beat the Republicans at flattering the vanity of the mythical Joe Sixpack. They must offer a vision of our common destiny based on one thing that all Americans, of every background, actually share. And that is citizenship. We must relearn how to speak to citizens as citizens and to frame our appeals - including ones to benefit particular groups - in terms of principles that everyone can affirm. Ours must become a civic liberalism. ~ Mark Lilla
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Mark Lilla
There is no patent recipe for getting good citizenship. You get it by applying the old, old rules of decent conduct, the rules in accordance with which decent men have had to shape their lives from the beginning .. fundamental precepts, put forth in the Bible and embodied consciously or unconsciously in the code of morals of every great and successful nation from antiquity to modern times. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
It wouldn't matter whether you were Latino or Hispanic or Norwegian. If you didn't have proof of citizenship and if the police officer had reasonable suspicion, he would ask and verify your citizenship. I mean, that's the way that it is. That's what the federal law says. And that's what the law in Arizona says. ~ Jan Brewer
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Jan Brewer
Here in America, marriage still has a mystical, intangible power: It is a passport to adulthood and respectability and to a certain extent citizenship. Any relationship less than "married" is considered temporary and not worthy of honor. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
If (O.J. Simpson) is acquitted, I will renounce my citizenship. And if I converse with him at a cocktail party, I will say, 'Well, there are so many people here who haven't murdered anyone. I think I'll go talk to them.' I'll also riot. ~ Dick Cavett
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Dick Cavett
Citizenship and ethnicity can become, in certain contexts, restrictive, and perhaps that's one reason I was interested in people who feel compelled to mask their origins and thereby circumvent the restrictions. ~ Rachel Kushner
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Rachel Kushner
How often since then has she wondered what might have happened if she'd tried to remain with him; if she'd returned Richard's kiss on the corner of Bleeker and McDougal, gone off somewhere (where?) with him, never bought the packet of incense or the alpaca coat with rose-shaped buttons. Couldn't they have discovered something larger and stranger than what they've got. It is impossible not to imagine that other future, that rejected future, as taking place in Italy or France, among big sunny rooms and gardens; as being full of infidelities and great battles; as a vast and enduring romance laid over friendship so searing and profound it would accompany them to the grave and possibly even beyond. She could, she thinks, have entered another world. She could have had a life as potent and dangerous as literature itself.

Or then again maybe not, Clarissa tells herself. That's who I was. This is who I am--a decent woman with a good apartment, with a stable and affectionate marriage, giving a party. Venture too far for love, she tells herself, and you renounce citizenship in the country you've made for yourself. You end up just sailing from port to port.

Still, there is this sense of missed opportunity. Maybe there is nothing, ever, that can equal the recollection of having been young together. Maybe it's as simple as that. Richard was the person Clarissa loved at her most optimistic moment. Richard had stood beside her at the pond's edge at dusk, wearing cut-off ~ Michael Cunningham
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Michael Cunningham
Citizenship is an attitude, a state of mind, an emotional conviction that the whole is greater than the part ... and that the part should be humbly proud to sacrifice itself that the whole may live. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
There are countries in which the communal provision of housing, transport, education and health care is so inferior that inhabitants will naturally seek to escape involvement with the masses by barricading themselves behind solid walls. The desire for high status is never stronger than in situations where 'ordinary' life fails to answer a median need for dignity or comfort.

Then there are communities - far fewer in number and typically imbued with a strong (often Protestant) Christian heritage - whose public realms exude respect in their principles and architecture, and whose citizens are therefore under less compulsion to retreat into a private domain. Indeed, we may find that some of our ambitions for personal glory fade when the public spaces and facilities to which we enjoy access are themselves glorious to behold; in such a context, ordinary citizenship may come to seem an adequate goal. In Switzerland's largest city, for instance, the need to own a car in order to avoid sharing a bus or train with strangers loses some of the urgency it has in Los Angeles or London, thanks to Zurich's superlative train network, which is clean, safe, warm and edifying in its punctuality and technical prowess. There is little reason to travel in an automotive cocoon when, for a fare of only a few francs, an efficient, stately tramway will provide transport from point A to point B at a level of comfort an emperor might have envied.

One insight to be drawn from Christia ~ Alain De Botton
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Alain De Botton
In a composite nation like ours, as before the law, there should be no rich, no poor, no high, no low, no white, no black, but common country, common citizenship, equal rights and a common destiny. ~ Frederick Douglass
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Frederick Douglass
Arizona is in the midst of a fiscal crisis. We've cut school funding. And they pass a bill questioning Obama's citizenship? For real? ~ Kyrsten Sinema
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Kyrsten Sinema
The mandate I have received and for which I will speak with heart and head to implement over the next seven years had its four pillars - an inclusive citizenship, equality and participation and respect in a creative society creating an excellence in everything we Irish do. ~ Michael D. Higgins
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Michael D. Higgins
...the whole of American life was organized around the cult of the powerful individual, that phantom ideal which Europe herself had only begun to outgrow in her last phase. Those Americans who wholly failed to realize this ideal, who remained at the bottom of the social ladder, either consoled themselves with hopes for the future, or stole symbolical satisfaction by identifying themselves with some popular star, or gloated upon their American citizenship, and applauded the arrogant foreign policy of their government. ~ Olaf Stapledon
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Olaf Stapledon
Part of comprehensive immigration reform is not just the path to citizenship for undocumented workers, but also the ability for families to be together. ~ Pramila Jayapal
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Pramila Jayapal
Citizenship is the chance to make a difference to the place where you belong. ~ Charles Handy
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Charles Handy
A champion, he said, wins a World Series or an Olympic and is hoisted on the shoulders of teammates and fans. A hero carries the people on his shoulders. Champions live for the moment- heroes, like Jackie Robinson, transcend time. ~ Sharon Robinson
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Sharon Robinson
Foreigners may be admitted to citizenship by naturalization, either collectively or individually. Collective naturalization may occur when a foreign territory and its inhabitants are transferred to the United States. ~ Charles A. Beard
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Charles A. Beard
It is one of the great goals of my administration to invigorate the spirit of involvement and citizenship. We will encourage faith-based and community programs without changing their mission. ~ George W. Bush
Carceral Citizenship quotes by George W. Bush
We are not anti-white. But we don't have time for the white man. The white man is on top already, the white man is the boss already ... he has first-class citizenship already. So you are wasting your time talking to the white man. We are working on our own people. ~ Malcolm X
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Malcolm X
Wilderness offers us a template to an enlightened citizenship. Instead of only caring for ourselves, we are invited to care for species other than our own. ~ Terry Tempest Williams
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
Rupert Murdoch gave up his Australian citizenship in order to buy television stations in the United States, which is symptomatic of the way Murdoch operates. Everything is for sale, including his birthright. The Mirror is not read by soccer hooligans. It's read by ordinary people of this country. That comment is simply patronizing. But to be criticized by the Moonies and Murdoch in one breath is really just a fine moment for me. ~ John Pilger
Carceral Citizenship quotes by John Pilger
The only way we can keep our freedom is to work at it. Not some of us. All of us. Not some of the time, but all of the time. ~ Spencer W. Kimball
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
I consider writing an act of good citizenship. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought. A theory however elegant and economical must be rejected or revised if it is untrue; likewise laws and institutions no matter how efficient and well-arranged must be reformed or abolished if they are unjust. Each person possesses an inviolability founded on justice that even the welfare of society as a whole cannot override. For this reason justice denies that the loss of freedom for some is made right by a greater good shared by others. It does not allow that the sacrifices imposed on a few are outweighed by the larger sum of advantages enjoyed by many. Therefore in a just society the liberties of equal citizenship are taken as settled; the rights secured by justice are not subject to political bargaining or to the calculus of social interests. ~ John Rawls
Carceral Citizenship quotes by John Rawls
I believe _cosmopolitanism_ can be an effective discourse with which to advocate a politics of _transidentity_ of overlapping interests and heterogeneous or hybrid subjects in order to challenge conventional notions of exclusive belonging, identity and citizenship. ~ Namsoon Kang
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Namsoon Kang
France was the first country in Europe to grant Jews the full rights of citizenship without qualification. ~ Leon Uris
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Leon Uris
If I catch a fish before the sun rises, I have connected myself again to the deep hum of the planet. If I turn on the television because I cannot stand an evening alone with myself or my family, I am admitting my citizenship with the living dead. ~ Pat Conroy
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Pat Conroy
In a rational state it would be more appropriate to ensure that a cobbler passed an examination than an executive civil servant; because shoe-making is a craft in the absence of which it is still possible to be a good citizen and a man in society. But the necessary 'knowledge of the state' is a precondition in the absence of which one lives outside the state, cut off from the air one breathes and from oneself. Thus the 'examination' is nothing but a Masonic initiation, the legal recognition of the knowledge of citizenship, the acknowledgement of a privilege.

This 'link' between the 'individual' and his 'office', this objective bond between the knowledge of civil society and the knowledge of the state, namely the examination, is nothing but the bureaucratic baptism of knowledge, the official recognition of the transubstantiation of profane knowledge into sacred knowledge (it is plain that in every examination the examiner is omniscient).

It is not recorded that Greek and Roman statesmen ever took examinations. But then what is a Roman statesman compared to a Prussian civil servant! ~ Karl Marx
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Karl Marx
If there's amnesty leading to citizenship, I'm going to vote against it again. ~ Frank Wolf
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Frank Wolf
History is the key to citizenship. ~ Taylor Branch
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Taylor Branch
Poetry can be criticized only through poetry. A critique which itself is not a work of art, either in content as representation ofthe necessary impression in the process of creation, or through its beautiful form and in its liberal tone in the spirit of the old Roman satire, has no right of citizenship in the realm of art. ~ Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
I still passionately support comprehensive immigration reform legislation with a path to full and equal citizenship. ~ Hillary Clinton
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Hillary Clinton
Central to neoliberalism as a form of governance is the establishment of a personal responsibility system, by which the sphere of state responsibility contracts in the same measure as personal responsibility expands, privatizing social risk. ... This philosophy marks a significant shift in the liberal discourse of citizenship, supplanting the historical emphasis on rights with new emphasis on citizens' responsibilities. ~ Rebecca Stringer
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Rebecca Stringer
Finally, cooking is good citizenship. It's the only way to get serious about putting locally raised foods into your diet, which keeps farmlands healthy and grocery money in the neighborhood. ~ Barbara Kingsolver
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
When history as the world knows it no longer exists, and there are no longer any great kings or great wars or great political machinations; when there are no histories of countries left to cherish, no more dollars; when it's no longer the strong versus the weak, and all that's left is the story of the great God and King, and all has been righted, and the heroes are now the missionaries and the ministers of grace - of which every believer can be - and our eyes behold Him as He truly is ... words fail. That is where our heart ought to be. But we are not there. And yet, we are. Let us wait for that day, expectantly and eagerly. Let us fix our eyes on heaven, where our citizenship is held securely, where we are presently united to Christ in spirit. Only let us hold true to what we have already attained. And we will yet attain it. ~ Matt Chandler
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Matt Chandler
While other men were peacefully following their vocations and extending their interests they [the Saints in Clay County] have been deprived of the right of citizenship, prevented from enjoying their own, charged with violating the sacred principles of our Constitution and laws. ~ Joseph Smith Jr.
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
We're being overrun by people who live in poor and corrupt countries who come to the USA to get work. But we got to regain our sovereignty, we're going to control our border, and there will be border security tied to the pathway to citizenship. There will be an earned pathway to citizenship. It will be available to everybody who works hard, pays a fine, passes a background check. ~ Lindsey Graham
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Lindsey Graham
Citizenship means standing up for the lives that gun violence steals from us each day. I have seen the courage of parents, students, pastors, and police officers all over this country who say 'we are not afraid,' and I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress, to help stop more tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters, shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook. ~ Barack Obama
Carceral Citizenship quotes by Barack Obama
One of the highest marks of citizenship is fighting for the common defense. ~ Richard Brookhiser
