The Obligations of Citizens

« back to classes page
John F. Kennedy famously said, “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” We are familiar with and frequently discuss our rights as citizens. Richard Haass, President of the Council of Foreign Relations, has written about the obligations of citizens, proposing that these obligations should be treated as seriously as The Bill of Rights. In this study group, we will read and discuss Haass's The Bill of Obligations (Penquin Press, 2023). After reviewing and discussing Haass’s book, we will attempt to apply his principles in addressing challenges of today by becoming informed and seeking achievable answers to difficult topics. Examine your obligation as a citizen and commit to joining us.
