Despite the huge ethnic, cultural, religious, geographical and divergent political orientations, the nationalist movement in Indonesia, since its inception, has always placed national unity as the milestone in its independence struggle against the Netherlands. On what has Soekarno based the nationalism of an archipelago as diverse as that of Indonesia? To achieve this nationalism, he has not hesitated to use a traditional model, with indigenous values, defined by reference to the East and therefore opposed to the West. Emphasis is placed on the history of the Indonesian community and the desire "to live together." From the 30s, Sukarno has posed the need for a centralized national unity around a strong government whose leader can give inspiration and would experience "the desires of the people more clearly than the people themselves" ( Mentjapai Indonesia Merdeka speech in 1933).
