What is the moral difference

Jean Rasczak:
Rico. What is the moral difference, if any, between a civilian and a citizen?
Johnny Rico:
A citizen accepts personal responsibility for the safety and the body politic defending it with his life. A civilian does not.
Jean Rasczak:
The exact words of the textbook. But do you understand it? Do you believe it?
Johnny Rico:
I don't know.
Jean Rasczak:
No, of course you don't. I doubt anyone here would recognize civic virtue even if it reached up and bit you in the ass!
