The Three Aspects of a Nation

The political existence of a nation rests on three fundamental aspects: first, the center of political power; second, the mode of exercise of political power; third, the culture that makes people feel that they are a part of a society. When the correlation between these three aspects is judicious and free of contradictions, the nation can be a land of happiness, stability, and prosperity. In a democratic or republican country, the political activity should be aimed at keeping the three aspects in consonance, but it’s generally the conservative political forces which seek to achieve that aim. The progressive and liberal forces thrive when there is a discord between the three aspects; their politics is motivated by utopian dreams which cannot be achieved unless there is chaos, instability, and unhappiness in society.
