And yet today we decide citizenship by what family you come from and where you are born, instead of where you live and how you live. With regards to "divine right", we haven't come as far as people like to pretend.
That's one of the stupidest things I've read in a while. Citizenship fir the US is granted by either being born within the boundaries of the country or going through the process of becoming a naturalized citizen. It has nothing to do with the 'family you come from' (unless that family is giving birth to you outside of the US) or 'how you live' (once again, unless how you live is somewhere NOT in the US).
