take the oath

How about a new citizen's oath of office:

"I do solemnly pledge that I will faithfully execute the office of
citizen of the United States, and that I will, to the best of my ability,
help create a truly democratic world by (1) going beyond mainstream
corporate news media to seek out information about important political,
economic, and social issues; (2) engaging fellow citizens, including those
who disagree with me, in serious discussion and debate about those
issues; (3) committing as much time, energy, and money as possible to help
build grassroots political organizations that can pressure politicians
to put the interests of people over profit and power; and (4)
connecting these efforts to global political and social movements fighting the
U.S. empire abroad, where it does the most intense damage. And I will
continue to resist corporate control of the world, resist militarism,
resist the roll-back of civil rights, and resist illegitimate authority in
all its forms."
