The Parallax View

A nation… exists only insofar as its members take themselves as members of this nation, and act accordingly; it has absolutely no content, no substantial consistency, outside this activity; and the same goes for, say, the notion of Communism – this notion “generates its own actualization” by motivating people to struggle for it.
