What emerged was a description of a system organized around the capital concepts of the state (public powers), the nation (the group of adult individuals whose status as subjects evolved into that of political actors), and society, which has navigated an unstable compromise between national sovereignty and despotic authority, divine right and aristocratic liberalism, or between liberalism and cesarism. From the interaction of these poles arose a national political space, an acculturation of the masses to political practice (their politicization), and a progressive replacement of violence by the vote (the losers accept the verdict of the ballot box).
