THE PUBLIC CITIZEN
A society is what the citizens make of it. Every society has the potential to be great provided the leadership is able to harness the citizens to pursue the collective good.
It is possible for individual members of a society to could be locked in the pursuit of their personal good and forget looking out for those things that make for the common or public good.
When individuals begin to advocate for and step out to work for the common good, they are referred to as public citizens. Without the intervention of public citizens, no society can attain its full potential.
Mobilizing for political consciousness and political participation is one of the ways to encourage the emergence of Public Citizens.
