the myth of the american citizen

The American citizen is a myth. America is populated by consumers. Consumers sometimes try to think like the mythical citizen. When consumers do this they become frustrated. If consumers desire change, they can research their consumption choices: where to shop, how to shop, varieties, sizes, color. Some consumers vote in elections. Most consumers do not vote. Not all consumers are eligible to vote. Governments call consumers citizens but consumers consume.
