A society is what the citizens make of it. Every society has the potential to be great provided the leadership is able to harness the citizens to pursue the collective good.
It is possible for individual members of a society to be locked in the pursuit of their personal goals and forget looking out for those things that promote the common or public good.
Individuals that advocate for or work for the common good, are referred to as public citizens. Without the intervention of public citizens, no society can attain its full potential.
Mobilizing for political consciousness and political participation is one of the ways to encourage the emergence of Public Citizens.
