Such an explanation put anxiety to rest: after all, the right of ‘close relatives’ to visit their family’s home and settle there has always been a birthright. But how do we know that the alien wasps were ‘close relatives’ of the natives? Well, they must have been, must they not? After all, if they were not, the insiders would have forced them to leave or killed them on the spot—QED. 2 Z. Bauman Becoming Brothers and Sisters in Collections of Diasporas The London researchers clearly forgot or failed to mention that it took a century or more of hard work, sometimes sword-brandishing and at other times brainwashing, to convince the Prussians, the Bavarians, the Badenians, the Wurtenbergians, or the Saxons (just as it takes now to convince the ‘Ossis’ and ‘Wessis’ in Germany or the Calabrians and Lombardians in Italy) that they were all close relatives of each other, cousins, even brothers or sisters, descendants of the same ancient German stock animated by the same German spirit, and that they thus should behave as close relatives do: be hospitable to each other and cooperate in protecting and increasing their common shared welfare.

Hardly any ‘belonging’ engages ‘the whole self’. Each person is, at any moment of her or his life, being involved in ‘multiple belongings’, so to say. Being loyal only in part of one’s self, or loyal à la carte (to the selected parts of the list of ‘belonging’ requirements), is no longer viewed necessarily as tantamount to disloyalty, let alone betrayal. Hence, the phenomenon of (cultural) ‘hybridity’ (that is, combining traits derived from different and separate species) has been now recast as a virtue and a sign of distinction, rather as (as it was viewed until quite recently) a vice and a symptom of either cultural inferiority or condemnable déracinement and déclassement.
