In the era of Oswald it could be difficult-like joining aspirants until they kneel in the snow for a few days outside the monastery or consulate's doors Now a US citizen can stop being American with a single visit to a consulate Most renounce not for ideological reasons but to avoid the complications of living as an American expatriate subject to dual taxation and bureaucratic requirements far more onerous than for expatriates of almost any other country an especially se lective monastic order that turns away But to argue that these women have given up their citizenship through informal means-by tweeting ghoulishly burning a passport or joining a terrorist group is still a novelty and according to an emerging consensus a bad idea Most terrorism experts seem to agree that stripping the citizenship of ISIS fighters is either imprudent or illegal or both A worthless traitor in the media blames America for other worthless traitors in ISIS and tells us to let them in Meme
