The state is ultimately based on constitution. The community of people, on the other hand, is neither supported by the constitution, nor can it be realized on a State level. Contrary to how it is generally understood, the community of people is not a given, but must rather be produced. "Blood ties" must first be culturally acquired, before they can become organic, natural bonds. The community of people must therefore be realized primarily on a level of culture, as a cultural community. Traditional nationality, which can only exist in traditional national customs, turns the sideline of "culture" into an essential "location and mission" of the politics of community.
