Discuss the rights and duties of a citizen

Publish at 11 months ago

Almost every moden state, especially a democracy, allows its citizen to perform certain duties. Among the enjoyed by the citizens in a democracy are the right to pursue his own affairs as he prefers; the right to express his views, however silly they may appear to others, and the right to move about as he pleases. The citizen is considered so important that his rights are protected by the law of the state, and whenever they are infringed, he can secure redress. But in a totalitarian state, the rights of the citizen are so restricted that he has practically no freedom.

The citizen is supposed to exist for the state. His interests are always subordinated to those of the state. Thus, his duties exceed his rights. Even in a democracy, however, the citizen is expected to exercising his rights within the limits of the law. He should not do or say anything that may affect the rights of others.In exercising his righit to act as he pleases, for example, he should not try to elope with othe man's wife or say anyhing slanderous about her or anyone. In the same way, his actions should not cause injury or damage to any individual or his property. He cannot kill as he pleases. If his conduct infringes the rights of others, then those who have been affected by his misconduct, could take legal action against him and he will be punished according to the law of state.

In this way, the state protects its citizens and their rights from the thoughtlesseness of any individual in the state. This means, of course, that every citizens in the state in expected to do his duty to his fellow citizens.The citizen is also expected to give his services for the protection of the state in times of war, and to maintain law and order in his state, at all time. Thus, every citizen who is conscious of his rights should also be conscious of his duties to the state and his fellow-citizens.
