Everything is Politics

Sometimes one finds in a theoretical essay with otherwise highflying abstract language a particularly apt phrase to describe a current situation. I dedicate this thought to Flanders. Because everything is politics.

Following the old joke “a language is a dialect that has its own army”, a nationality is an ethnicity bearing a favoured relation to a particular state.

From: Charles Tilly, ‘Citizenship, Identity and Social History’
