Superman to renounce U.S. citizenship!
I have to start this post with the admission that I really haven’t kept up with the exploits of The Man of Steel for the past 40 or so years.
That said, even though I’ve never been sure of his political affiliation, I can now only conclude that he’s a liberal. I’ve had this realization thrust upon me as a result of him renouncing his U.S. citizenship.
It seems that Superman has become tired of his actions being seen through the prism of nationality rather than being a result of his own altruistic tendencies. The United States has become such a liability for him that his only recourse is to renounce his citizenship and declare himself a citizen of the world at large.
Over the years, people, with nothing much better to do, have drawn parallels between Superman and the United States, reflecting this country’s role as the one superpower on the planet with the ultimate goal of serving & protecting all people.
I think it’s fitting that at this point in our history, while our government expends a great deal of time and effort apologizing for our actions, Superman has done what our citizen of the world President only hints at.
