nations or states experiences and other discussions of nationality

The flyer like discussion and the discussion like line of flight,
is a conversational structure.
It´s organizing in two faces and offers instructions to
act in the event (face1) or just answer questions. (face2)

Spanish, Dutch, and English.There is sound-register.
The notion of “nationality” presupposes hierarchies:
people that were born in a determined locality have better rights
than immigrants. But, what would happen with these hierarchies
if a “native” decided to experiment with selective-denationality?
