There was a good discussion on the pressing need to move away from thinking about people as consumers, rather than citizens.

I don’t know if that’s so much of a problem in the UK. But made me think of Century of the Self and old Edwards Bernays and his involvement in the move from thinking of citizens to thinking of consumers.

Some good point that citizen is a loaded term too – not everyone in a community might actually be a citizen (in the formal sense.)
