Document Summary

There is a seemingly obvious answer: the ideological of nations. A nation is a group that wants to have its own state. Nations do not invent nationalism, instead nationalism invents nations. A group of people who believe they share a common fate, history, culture and language. Nationalism says that the state and nation should be congruent. The leaders should share a common culture/language/history with the people. They believe they have a canadian nation and that they should have a canadian state. But this occurs only under modern conditions there is something about modernity there was no congruent between nation and state before modernity. Never before in human history did people insist that their leaders be of the same culture and never did leaders try to make the people share their culture. It"s the need for congruence that needs to be explained. High cultures and low cultures: european monarchs and their populations.
