The stability of the imperial state depends on the ability of the dominant nation to retain its control. If its ability is weakened either by internal developments or external intervention, the state structure stands at risk of complete collapse, as in the case of Austria-Hungary after the First World War. Political threats are thus a key element in the national security problem of imperial states. These models represent ideal types, and as with any such classification, not all real world cases fit smoothly into them.
Individuals may or may not have felt loyalty to the royal figure—most were probably indifferent—but there was little sense of a national community. Hobbes’ “commonweal” was made up of atomistic individuals, not of a society as we understand the term today. Indeed, most political thought of the era was States and statehood 23 highly individualistic, whether discussing political and property rights, or the duties of obedience to the absolute ruler. The nation part of the state, the idea of group solidarity and identity, did not appear widely until the nineteenth century.
The explanation lies in the increased analytical skills of people gained through universal education, increased literacy, and the availability of new information technologies. If many people no longer submit automatically to state authority, then either loyalty will be directed elsewhere to polities that can effectively challenge the state, or in the extreme, the state may become obsolete or in some other way become transformed. The trend is already well on the way, for authority is escaping both to the outside and within the state.
