Results and Discussion
Over time, many connections are formed between people who live in a geographical area, which gives them a special political view of being a nation. The domination of man in the place continues to the last borders of a country and is as old as human history Real boundaries represent the ultimate advancement of political, cultural, and social concepts, and any kind of demarcation outside of historical custom will lead to the division of these concepts. In Iran, the country's borders have been established throughout a very long and continuous history, and any tide of these borders has met with the reaction of at least the Iranian elite. This patriotic approach, which was formed in the minds of people like Ferdowsi and Yaqub Laith Saffari, became a form of archaism, rationalism or idealism in the contemporary centuries. It is necessary to mention that in different historical periods, especially in the first centuries of Islam, in fact, everyone in Iran knew where Iran was, and even when Iran was part of the Islamic Caliphate, the people knew such a town and village. Who are Iranians or belong to another country. In the land of Iraq, this division can be seen in different areas. In Madain, for example, an Arab group lived alongside an Iranian group, and this amalgamation led to the defeat of the Levant against Iraq, and the formation of the Abbasid Caliphate from a combination of Iranian and Arab civilizations. This mix has existed in many parts of the world throughout history and has led to many wars and conflicts. A phase of war and violence will begin if territorialism transcends the borders defined by the nation. However, national identity is formed in a geographical context and in an ideal state, this geographical context corresponds to the borders of the country. With the exception of small island states such as Malta, it is very rare for the borders of a country and the geography that national identity has been occupied in a historic effort to coincide.
The national identity of individuals in its historical course leads to political self-awareness and the desire to form a specific land. The political system is formed following the territorial aspirations of the masses of people who, in the course of their evolution, form a state and become a nation. Territorialism in the sense is a constructive phenomenon that leads to the formation of civilization. Ancient civilizations were formed following the expansion of territory, and the political systems created following this territorialization created the first political concepts. Political Concepts and the Crisis of Legitimacy of Governments, which are part of their political structure, have led to complex, more efficient political systems in which the role of the people has become more prominent. With the entanglement of the concept of state and nation, national identity took on a political flavor. However, throughout history, territorialism has always been associated with destruction, violence, and war, and wherever a nation has risen up for spatial growth and development, it has ended up with attacks without strong philosophical support and relying on superficial concepts. The outside world is under attack.
The nation-state has been wonderfully established in Iran during its heyday. Unlike the disappearance of ancient civilizations such as Greece and Rome in Europe, Iranian civilization and Iranian identity have not been disconnected and have always been current. Another point is the clinging of Iranian identity and geography of Iran, and unlike some civilizations such as Indian and Roman civilization in the great migration from Rome to Byzantium, has always been felt within its borders, albeit restless. An interesting feature of Iranshahri civilization is the lack of a specific center in its vast geography. Iranshahri civilization has been fluid in the geography of Iran for centuries and its geographical centers have been constantly shifted. Unlike Athens, Rome, Paris and London, which have long represented their countries, no city has played such a role even in the first years of the formation of the political system in Iran. The Achaemenid Empire also benefited from several centers. In contrast, the formation of the political system and the creation of the nation-state in Europe has always been an artificial phenomenon that is by no means tied to its geographical space and is more satisfied with ethnicity and language. European nation-building has often been violent and bloody, leading to endless conflicts. Extremist regionalism has risen up against EU regionalism and challenged the values of the Union.
