Is citizenship established for heaven or only on earth? This is an important question. Citizenship defines both our dignity and sense of destiny, it would seem.
Let us consider WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as a case in point. He is a citizen of Australia, but appears to have done much of his research and work outside his home country. He now seeks asylum in Ecuador and is waiting out the process at its embassy in London.
UK police have said he will be arrested and deported to Sweden to answer alleged sexual-offence charges and then perhaps be sent on to the US for “unstated crimes” against the US, under secret EU-US arrangements.
