Abstract

Respect for the state authority remains central in Mongolian political culture. Respect (hündetgel), a technology engaged in the construction of the notion of the state, produces the state power. People unite with the state in deference to the cult of the state and this enhances the power of the state, giving the state an after-life of its own. This paper discusses the dialectical relationship between people's respect for the rules and customs of the former state(s), which now come down to represent an abstract state devoid of historical context, and their engagement with the actual state.
