The concept of a particular nation does not exist if those within its purported boundaries do not agree on the fact of its existence.
Any subsequent move to force one’s concept of a nation on others who disagree is an act of foundational violence, as the maintained attempt to control another’s imaginary requires constant acts of destruction.
If one’s mission is convincing others that their thinking does not exist, that same person will do little else in life outside of demolishing everything those others understand as real.
