The State


The State, in law, is a population, a territory, and an effective power of the constituted authorities acting within that territory on this population.

The fragility of a state is measured by low seniority of its borders, the composite character of its population, the pre-existence of strong ethnic or religious communities, and the existence of organized political minorities.

The cohesive force of a State is measured, conversely, by the high consistency and former religious, linguistic, political, and cultural domination of a pervasive, structured and ongoing government, under the direction of a political power.

The political leadership is not indifferent. A strong desire for unity will result in a linguistic unit imposed by a centralized state, a lack of religious tolerance, sometimes a common ideology imposed, or the cult of the head of state conveyed by the posters, the media, the school, and cinema.

We'll discuss the State community of citizens, the State administration and the State political system.
