Citizenshipof a country is attained through various ways. According to Collier(1976), citizenship can be acquired through birth, which is trueaccording to the modern regulations of every country. Other thanbirth, marriage can also be an evident of one’s citizenship inone’s country. Registration is also a form of citizenship thoughdiscouraged by most people due to long and expensive processes ofregistration. s believe to be citizens of their countries orbelieve that they are s due to certain factors (Foner, 1997).
Firstand foremost, s believe to be people with their own dreamsand that they have a strong will to fulfill these dreams no matterthe hardships. This statement might be false or true depending onone’s point of view. To begin with, s are believed to beamong the wealthiest people worldwide in term of money and ideas.According to today’s culture, for every man to be successful, hehas to work hard in order to acquire wealth unlike older days wherechildren inherited their wealth from their parents. The fact thatthese s are rich is a clear justification that they are hardworkers. s are full of knowledge and skills acquired fromtheir hard work of attaining their dreams. I therefore echo thatevery man with a dream and got strong will to fulfill it no matterthe hardships is an . Many countries import services such asconstruction of roads and every commercial building in their townfrom countries. They believe that s are the bestwith skills needed for certain tasks. These skills are acquired andnot born with anyone. In order to acquire such skills and knowledge,one need to be focused and have a dream of accomplishing the task andnever quit in between the journey due to certain opposing forces(Collier 1976).
Otherthan construction, s are believed to be the best researchersin search of cure for certain disease. Deadly diseases such as Ebolaand HIV do not have cure but an idea from a researcher in America istaken more seriously than any idea from any other person in adifferent country. The reasons as to why such researches are takenmore serious than those from other countries is that arebelieved to be working very hard and have got better skills andequipment for conducting any research than other countries (Foner,1997).
Diseasessuch as organ transplant are treated in countries. Othercountries may have the necessary equipments required in the treatmentof such disease but the doctors are underrated as not to be havingthe required skills. However, people think that s are thebest since their hard work nature enables them perform suchoperations.
Theabove statement can however be criticized too. How can it be possiblethat it is only s who have dreams and have a strong will tofulfill them no matter the hardship they may face? In othercountries, students are taught and when they mature up, some set goalof which they achieve at later times. A good example is the cartracking devise that the idea was borrowed from an African studentwho was doing his coursework during project presentation period. Theideas was later adopted by the s and modified. The fact thatthe device was invented by an African student does not have enoughweight to conclude that he is an . Therefore the point thatall dreamers with the strong urge to fulfill their dreams despite anyhardship they may encounter in nullified.
Onsimilar line, there are some services that the countriesimport from other countries. Services such as project work areimported from other countries since it is believed that they providequality and good work. The provision of this quality work does notmean that people from other countries are unable to initiate theirown ideas, the challenge might be the lack of equipments to handlethe project and also lack of enough money to fund the project.Therefore anyone found to be supporting the fact that s arepeople with dreams and people with a strong urge to fulfill thesedreams despite the hardship that they may encounter should becorrected otherwise he would be preaching a false gospel.
Birthis a form of citizenship that is allowed in every country worldwide.When someone is born in a certain country, he/she qualifies to be acitizen of that country no matter what. On similar lines, any personbelieved to have been born in any of the countries is saidto be an . The statement is however true since according tothe laws and regulations of every country, any person born in thatcountry and registered under the documents of such country qualifiesto be a citizen of that country. Therefore I justify the fact thatany child born in any of the s countries is an bybirth. Similarly, citizenship can be acquired through marriage. Whena lady is married by an and decides to live with the husbandin America, she definitely becomes an .
An is believed to be any person talking with certain Englishascent. It is believed that for every person to have learned alanguage of a certain place, that person must have stayed in thatplace for so long to be identified as one of the people of thatplace. It is however false to use such justifications since there arepeople who are quick learners. For a normal person to learn a certainplace’s language, that person must have stayed in that place formore than six years continuously. The above statement could be truesince most countries, allow one to be a citizen of that country afterhaving lived in that country for more than five years. However, itwould be wrong to say so while considering quick learners who canlearn a language for duration of only one year. The person would betalking fluently and he has stayed there for only a year, thuscriticizing the abiding rule of one being a citizen he/she must havelived in that country for the last five years at least.
Accordingto Obama (2006) citizenship can be acquired when one vividlyunderstand the rules and regulations of a country. Using hisjustifications, an is any person who is aware and familiarwith the rules and regulations that governs . A researchconducted by him might be true in regards to his point of view.However, according to my knowledge, there are students from certaincourses such as history who their courses force them to know theorigin of laws and the laws of different countries. Therefore, thesestudents will have a better understanding of laws justbecause it was part of their coursework. It would therefore bemeaningless to conclude that the person is an and yet hemight be conducting research from a country is Africa. Similarly,some people might be motivated to compare laws and regulations ofcertain countries in order to venture into business in thosecountries. The purpose of these people, mostly businesspeople is toevaluate which countries have high import or export charges on goods.Their purpose is not to understand the rules completely but toevaluate the best and efficient country to locate their businesses.It would therefore wrong to say such a person is an becausehe knows the rules (Klineberg, 1944).
Obama(2006) stated that an is a person who is well behaved. Inthis, he meant that an is any person, who does not go tovisit a friend to find out whether it is convenient to visit them, aperson who cannot carry his friends, relative or even children to aparty when invited before asking the host, a person who doesn’tsqueeze others in queues but instead waits aside until his time to beserved comes. He later added that an is any person who doesnot use specific color for burial occasions.parent doesnot hit his children to discipline them but instead takes away theirbelongings. He also added that any person who admires youth and workspast 65 years or even go back to school is an . Finally headded that a person who smiles a lot and talks easily to strangers isan . The combination of all these traits according to Obamamakes one be called an .
Accordingto my point of view, it is true that a person portraying the abovetraits is an . In other countries, in is always a hobby forsomeone to carry all his friends, relatives and children to a partywithout enquiring the host. More so, most people from other countriesdo not appreciate strangers but instead mock them unlike swho are always willing to talk to them. Since s do not have aspecific color for a burial event, in other countries such as Africancountries black color symbolizes burial. Similarly, during burialevents, most countries focus on contributing money but insteads send flowers or trees to the family. It is a phobia forworker to retire at an early age of 55 years in most countries unlikes who have passion with youths and even go back to school asold as 65 years old. Lastly, developing countries such as Africancountries, there is always struggle in queues and also corruption isevident. In the opposite applies whereby a person waitsaside till his service time comes. However, it is true accordingObama (2006) that a person who portrays the above characteristics isan .
Insummary, an would be identified by birth, marriage,registration and evident of characteristics mentioned above.
