In their realm, I think citizen may be short for citizen ship, meaning a ship on the water. There is not ship, but they pretend we are all mastering/mistering a ship.
Resident is supposedly short for resident alien, according to a few or many authors in this genre.
So it wouldn’t be a surprise if K-12 teaches us the false notion that citizen always means of a nation-state, whereas the legal society is hearing it as and treating it as citizen ship.
Recall, that churches were a ruse as well. People thought they were praying. That it was wor-ship. But in fact, it was war ship.
They thought it was something called religion. When in fact, it was a re-legion.
This may be the reason they don’t use the word ‘national’, which I prefer. “National”, the word, has not been corrupted. When I say I’m a state national. It’s clear that I’m a state citizen. I also like to say I’m a native of my state. (And I add in the date the original state was formed.)
So they use citizen, and it means citizen ship, and that’s why they use plural ‘your’ and call everyone ‘mister’. We’re mistering/mastering the citizen ship, that they birthed. People fly the union war-time (horizonal stripes) flag, which means merchant statute law and code, or at the very least it means maritime law and possibly military jurisdiction.
I think encouraging people to fly the union war-time flag from their homes is another trick/deception. We’re told it’s patriotic. But it’s an easy way for people to unknowingly place themselves into the territorial jurisdiction of the federation.
