Explanation:
What exactly is your question?
This term has been used by governments and political parties of all hues, from democratic to Fascist ones. Usually, it means accepting that the individual has some duties and responsibilities towards society as a whole: whether you agree with their definition of such duties and responsibilities, largely depends on whether you share their political convictions.
