    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    right, the Ben Franklin and Walt Whitman Bridges. Their full names rarely used when referred to as a conduit but usually used when referred to as a landmark.
