Aristotle, The Politics A short overview of the reading; Many rights-oriented philosophers believe that distributive justice is not a matter of rewarding virtue or moral desert, and that the measure of a just society is not whether it produces virtuous citizens, but whether it provides a fair framework of rights within which individuals can pursue their own values. Aristotle BC rejects both of these beliefs. He believes that justice consists in giving people what they deserve, and that a just society is one that enables human beings to realize their highest nature and to live the good life.
No longer a citizen of one exclusive nation, Garry claimed his status as a citizen of the world. Why would Garry Davis, a Broadway actor and comedian who just wanted to make people laugh, give up his US citizenship in favor of world citizenship?
To answer that question, I will need to take you back to the early s. As a child and teenager, Garry loved acting. To Garry, the script of a play was like his prayer book and the theatre was like his temple, his mosque, his synagogue, his church, his place of worship.
The audience was like his parishioners.
He wanted to make the audience happy, and in their laughter, he felt their love. Garry's dream of a life in theatre and movies came crashing down when he heard the news that his brother Bud had been killed in Salerno on his battleship. Garry's sadness turned to anger and then to revenge.
He became a bomber pilot set on destroying Hitler's war factories. But thousands of feet up in his B airplane, as he was dropping bombs on villages, he knew he was killing women, men and children. His revenge turned to remorse. He would rather have been entertaining these people, making them laugh, rather than killing them.
When he came back from the war, he was disillusioned with the nation-state system that made him kill his fellow humans. He suffered from post-traumatic stress from what he witnessed and from the acts of violence he committed.
He wanted out of the war game.

He had heard of a young man who had gone to Europe to rebuild the churches that were destroyed during the war. And he read a book called Anatomy of Peace, by Emery Reves, a book that explained how humans could transcend the problem of war by coming together at the world level.
So he decided to go to Paris, legally renounce his US citizenship, and begin to rebuild the world he had helped to destroy. In his memoir, My Country is the World, he explains why he would give up his citizenship, an act that at that time was considered highly controversial and unpatriotic.
He writes, "Homo sapiens, man calls himself. But one of the tragedies of our times is that modern man, as man of ages past, doesn't know himself. He has lost confidence in his own innate capacity. And only then does he yearn to be free.
You and I may be fellow humans, but we are not fellow nationalists. I am a fellow who willfully withdrew from the co-partnership of citizen and national state and declared himself a world citizen.
I have for my trouble, hung my hat in 34 prisons and two ships' brigs. If spending time in the jails of the world, however, would further the understanding of one world and one humankind, I would gladly forfeit my freedom again this very day. He viewed the whole world as his home, as his house of worship.
He wanted us to see the world, itself, as holy, as a sanctuary for our imagination. He loved to quote Albert Einstein who said that imagination is more important than intelligence.
Garry wanted us to imagine and then create a world that would work for everyone. When he renounced his national citizenship, he became stateless, persona non grata, with no country and nowhere to go.
He needed to create an identity and status for himself to ensure that his rights would be respected. This is when he decided to declare himself to be a world citizen, with universal rights that should be universally respected, no matter where he found himself on earth.
