What you refer to here is simply called nationalism in its very crude form or just state of being very nationalistic in a sort of outdated and narrow minded 19th century way. Elsewhere things have evolved…
That is American view, you have the same phenomena you call it patriotism, because for lack of national bond of your citizens. You are raised form the day one to love your country, we are raised to love our nation.
I don't want to even try to discuss nationalism with you, you have far less knowledge about its routs, development its meaning, so it is futile. What you think you know is something completely else. No offense, I dealt with the subject from all sides, psychological, historical, legal, political. Second you tend to display rigid cognitive style where my attempts would be stopped for the second time. Third, you were more than once very mean, at times also vulgar when it comes to description of Serbs, so I , knowing that attitudes especially after emotions are envolved and person repeats them over and over (like you did) they become even more solid. Very rarely people change their attitudes through discussion, it is known what are the factors that have to involved, neither of us possess the traits to perform something that would make you unbiased. On my side lack of authority, on yours integrative thinking, tendency not to oversimplify phenomena, and above all mechanism of displacement you tend to use when it comes to Serbian topic, you are simply mean and angry with not much to say about the topic besides the usual things.
hmm I wonder if the Serbian media gave Russian and Greek volunteers fighting for Serbs the same psychological assessment... or did they just called them heroes..?
It is good to say that the reportage about foreign volunteers in CRO was made by BBC I think, certainly not anything close to Serbs. It sadly should have presented the support, but for those who have basic literacy it presented something completely different.
I didn't know that Russians volunteered in this war nor Greeks, until I came to this forum and was involved in shameful discussions like this one where I have constantly for the sake of TRUTH to dig out from the graves people who were victims on Serbian side. It seems to me, also to a blind one, that that side is slightly underrepresented here. That truly is causing nausea. I don't see a reason why would you be so engaged in Crow's threads, discuss American, Polish, Danish? issues that have some relevance for you and where you can be creative, not destructive and redundant.. Sadly your contribution here is close to zero.
...but of course 1945 , remember?! Yeah! Let's go kill the grandpa, it's been only 50 yeras! - grow the fvck up.
It was mostly driven by fear for survival, Croats declaring independence changed their constitution and expelled Serbs that were big minority out of it, reviving the traumatic past of the people there. History exists, like it or not. your country your issues, I am not getting involved in discussions that deal with something that I have less knowledge about, and especially I wouldn't dare to give you lessons how to behave. You displayed all of your shortcomings on one- single topic Serbs.
