89 Despite this, nationalism, regardless of its form, has an important role in liberalism as a source of identity. The practical difficulties of world government render it essential to identify smaller groups of people who should rule themselves via the mechanisms of the liberal state. Common identity through a shared sense of nationhood provides a potentially excellent, because popularly acceptable, way of making these divisions. The parallel rise of nationalism and liberal political ideas in the nineteenth century can perhaps be seen as mutually complementary in this way.

70 Similar concerns are reflected by David Caron. His slightly more radical look at the Security Council focuses on the need to improve its representativeness of international society via greater involvement and consultation with the General Assembly. 71 He also stresses the need to deal with what he describes as 'the reverse veto' whereby Permanent Members can block or prolong action by stopping changes to, or 26 Legitimacy and the Rise and Fall of Yugoslavia termination of, previously approved actions.

The classical liberal state is a minimal institution, placing as few restraints as possible on the freedom of the individual, and a revisionary liberal state incurs positive duties in the name of greater freedom for all. Legitimacy is thus determined in relation to the individual. The international system sanctions an absolutist monarchy; liberalism a constitutionally limited, consensual and popularly accountable democracy. The implications of this are not the division of the two spheres of activity and the application of one model of legitimacy at one level and another at the other, especially for Western states.
