become members of a nation by cultural assimilation; and from a purely linguistic
definition, according to which "the nation" consists of all speakers of a specific

ethnicity or country over others, some nationalists support ethnocentric supremacy or

The humiliation of being a second-class citizen led regional minorities in multiethnic

states, such as Great Britain, Spain, France, Germany, Russia and the Ottoman
Empire, to define nationalism in terms of loyalty to their minority culture, especially
language and religion. Forced assimilation was anathema.[153]

For the politically dominant cultural group, assimilation was necessary to minimize
disloyalty and treason and therefore became a major component of nationalism. A
second factor for the politically dominant group was competition with neighboring states
—nationalism involved a rivalry, especially in terms of military prowess and economic
