The ‘myth’ that I like, and employ, is to encourage viewing the government as a corporation, and the citizen as a shareholder. Emphasis is added to the shareholder meme to give it ‘equal and non-transferable’ status.
The ‘citizen’ understands what the shareholder should expect from their corporation.
