The mythic concept that "ethnicity is a family" is universal for all of the nations of the world. People, if only subconsciously, compare their own and foreign ethnic groups with large families, knowing full well that the content of families may be variegated. This sort of mythologizing is not an act of mere imagination, however - it is a belief, an idealization, and the worship of the unknown, sacred, and incomprehensible. At the same time it is something that people are dependent upon, to which they are accustomed, and which they find useful. Neither knowing nor seeing God, people still belief in him. In their imagination, he may be Buda, Christ, or Muhammad, but he is always Almighty. Belief in kinship is functional, and acts as a systwe-defining factor. This is not the fanatic belief in a community comprised only of relatives, but rather an understanding that kinship and its various degrees serve as the paradigmatic core of ethnic subordination. It is not important how many relatives and non-relatives there are in a community; what is important is the dialectic of "kinship-non-kinship" as the mechanism that launches ethnic relations into practice.
