The boundaries of the state extend well beyond any ties established by family, village, city or province, but nevertheless it successfully unites its members, forging an enduring political association ostensibly based on the commitment to individual rights. In Arendt’s critique, the enduring quality of this commitment has relied dangerously on a form of solidarity achieved through members’ sentimental identification with the nation.
