DEMOCRACY IN ENGLAND

II
The growth of democracy is contemporary with the development of nationalism. Emphasis on the sovereignty of the people does not necessarily, it is true, imply the division of the people of the world into a number of different "peoples." Still less does it mean that the division must be based on national or racial factors. Some democracies contain different ethnological groups. Switzerland has a fairly even division' between its French-speaking and German-speaking inhabitants; in other countries, like Britain, Belgium, Canada, South Africa, Czechoslovakia, the division is more unequal. In further cases contiguous territories ethnologically single are politically diverse, such as Sweden, Norway, Denmark. But in practice stress is laid to the greatest possible extent on national characteristics, a cultural heritage, common language, institutions, or traditions, and thus cohesion internally is strengthened at the expense of international community. This is true even where federalism has provided the solution of domestic differences. The argument that a nation exists despite federal diversities is a marked feature of the nineteenth-century history of Switzerland and the United States, especially after civil war had revealed the measure of its absence. The federal principle which alone offers an answer to international war as well as to group conflict has been applied only in limited areas, and has shewn always a tendency to develop towards a unitary state. The reason for this is not different from the reasons for the growth of the unitary nation-state. Internal order requires a sufficiently strong central authority to impose it. So does national defence. Economic advantages in the shape of the abolition of internal trade barriers and the creation of a single market
