Critical Citizenship and Anger: A Reconstructionist Resistance to the Election of Donald J. Trump
Dantley, Michael E.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p929-935 2017
Almost like never before, the place and role of citizenship in a democracy is at the forefront of my thinking. The Trump administration, that in a month's time has attempted to turn the presidency of the United States into an autocracy, demands that citizens become actively engaged in ensuring that the hallmarks of living in a democracy and the ethical efficacy of the checks and balances system that is to undergird the governmental process are being forthrightly enacted. This season brings into much higher focus what it actually mans to live in a democracy and what it means to be a critical citizen in such a time as this.
