In some contexts this assertion sounds straightforward: refugees or exiles are brought together in longing for their homeland; nationalists are always worrying that patriotic sentiment is waning; Slavoj Žižek argues that ‘the ﬁght for national revival is therefore a defense of something which comes to be only through being experienced as lost or endangered’ (1991: 802). But what does it mean to say that in general, in all cases, national identity is a melancholic construction? 4 ‘Is it quite certain,’ he wonders, ‘that identiﬁcation presupposes that object-cathexis has been given up?
This highly emotive, collective identiﬁcation with ‘home’ may have established itself in contrast to notions of progress and expansion, but it seemed to progress and expand along with imperial enterprise. The performative force of social organicism – its deep-seatedness and elasticity – allowed it to apply wherever the British ships set to shore, extending not only to the colonial landowners re-creating bygone eras of rusticity, but automatically to their colonial subjects as well. While on one hand the construct of organic belonging was thus fueling imperial expansion; on the other, roping wider and more varied circles of subjects into the governance of empire helped reinvigorate this discursive effect and its attendant emotion at home.
But Freud’s interest in group psychology seems more intent upon the kinds of conﬂict within group identity itself, beginning with the confession of his own ‘mufﬂed hostility’ against the phenomenon of (hypnotic) suggestion. The antagonism Freud theorizes arises from his hunch that at root, suggestion is ‘an evident injustice and an act of violence’ that works tyrannically to ‘subdue’ the will of another (89). The aspect of tyranny is exacerbated by the seeming capacity of suggestion to explain everything in psychoanalysis, while itself remaining impenetrable to explanation.
