Free, Fair and Alive calls the word citizen a ‘keyword from a failing era’ and prefers ‘commoner’.

  1. @neil interesting! Makes sense, although I guess I’m personally enamoured with cities so I like the association. I would agree that citizen as ‘member of a nation state’ might be on the way out, though.

  2. @flancian Same, I’d always associated (perhaps erroneously!) citizen as someone civicly engaged, and at a municipal level. So I was interested to see this challenge.But I guess technically it does mean recognised member of a nation state, which is problematic.
