A God In Spite of His Nose | The White Review
We might see any nationalist project as an apotheosis, produced by three categories of actors. First, there is the compelling, lauded individual, candidate for the heavens. Second, the would-be god’s devotees, who in their piety and their numbers are essential for their hero’s recognition. Third, there are those with the power to narrate, record, and shape the story. But of this trinity, the deity is the least important. Godhood is a low point. The almighty one is the storyteller.
