REBIRTH

Rebirth is an analogy to conception.

Kant writes:

"As natives of a country, those who constitute a nation can be looked upon analogously to descendants of the same ancestors even though they are not. Yet in an intellectual sense and from the perspective of rights, since they are born of the same mother (the republic) they constitute as it were one family, whose members (citizens of the state) are of equally high birth." (Text)/(AA VI:343)

Human being

Human being

A human being is the outcome of a conception.

At the conception, the sperm of the genetic father fertilizes the egg of the genetic mother.

Once the fertilized egg is implanted, the pregnant woman is the natural guardian.

Citizen

Citizen

The citizen is the outcome of a rebirth.

At the rebirth, the civil registration certifies someone's request for parental responsibility for a newborn.

Once the civil registration has certified someone's request for parental responsibility for a newborn, someone has parental responsibility for the newborn and the newborn is a citizen.

A citizen is a human being with nationality.

Nationality

Nationality is inherited from the natural guardian to the newborn through rebirth.

The pregnant woman is the natural guardian. Even when the pregnant woman is not the genetic mother.

After the birth and before the rebirth, the natural guardian can give the guardianship to either the genetic father or the genetic mother.

If the natural guardian has given the guardianship to either the genetic father or the genetic mother, then either the genetic father or the genetic mother is the natural guardian.

A genetic relation to a newborn is revealed by DNA testing. Marriage is not a guarantee for a genetic relation to a newborn.

Someone must request the civil registration for parental responsibility for the newborn.

When a human being through rebirth is reborn as a citizen, then that person has an inalienable right to participation in the constituent power, if that person develops school readiness. Responsibility for development of school readiness is included in parental responsibility.

A person can have residence permit in several republics at the same time, but a person cannot possess constituent power in more than a single nation at the same time. Participation in the constituent power of another nation requires a change of nationality. Residence permit and change of nationality are matters of national sovereignty.
