Why are YOU here George, how Polish are YOU, in fact how Polish is Nathan or Terq ???
Nathan is a Jewish name so he might be a Polish-Jew...Torq is 100% Polish, and I'm 50% Polish and 50% Greek. Ta-da... so fiye apotho kondo-psoli....
I defend and Protect Hellenism on the Internet and elsewhere!
Is that your day job? How much is the rent going for in your moms basement? Stop being a tool, I know why you came here...to poison the atmosphere since those balkan/nationalist forums...including the TONS of nationalistic virtual battles on YouTube are a wormhole of craziness and a black hole of rationalism... I know you didn't come here to escape all of that... It's always the same story, "We're the original Westerers, we invented everything, the other gay countries stole it all, we are superior, they stole it from us and we will soon get it back!, our ancestors Alexander, Plato, Leonidas, Homer, and others will be proud of us....we're _______ (insert Balkan country name)."
What utter crap coverup....a cover up for lack of progression and slackness in culture and innovation in the balkans....if all this 'superiorism' existed then the Balkans would be like Italy and have a continuum of innovation and cultural prospering, rather you guys let the Turks rape you and now you sit around dreaming and arguing what the ancients did.
What I don't get is why the hell you guys argue nationalism, borders, constitutions, and religions of your countries when NONE of that stuff existed in ancient times. As if Plato with his IQ of over 200 would have been around today saying he was emotionally orgasmic for being Greek and that he would spam forums and make racial slurs. Actually he told us that ethnicities were mere creation of man to run republicas (forms of sovereigns, governance, society, and civics) so that societal prospering can occur, or exploiting of humans directly or indirectly, or the development of community for human survival, or to establish a sovereign to avoid human chaos, etc. Aristotle didn't even believe in the ethnicity, just races....he was too busy opening up orangutans and comparing their organ structure with humans....and then claiming humans and animals are similar due to common roots.... (yes there were many people who theorized evolution prior to Darwin). With that being said...if the Balkans cared about their 'ancestors' they'd take the time to read these golden works instead of claiming 'bloodlines' to them and then sitting behind a computer "defending" some man-made flag color and border shape. Truth is according to someone like Plato, I am much more Greek than you.
Hey Southern, do any of the ancient ethnic distinctions between Greeks still carry water now? The pre-Greek inhabitants of Greece are sometimes called Pelasgians. Does anyone in Greece still claim Pelasgian ethnicity?
yes...nationalists do...they might say I am spartan or athenian and crap...the normal people just say I am Greek. Btw, Pelagesians weren't the original inhabitants necessarily.
and what about the Dorian vs. Ionian rivalry has that been forgotten too?
yep...just like the Greek vs. Macedonian, Albanian vs. Kosovo, Bulgarian vs. Macedonian, Greek vs. Turkish rivalries will be forgotten as well with time being....I guarantee it.... much more since ancient rivalries were much more serious than the internet ones of today and included bloodshed. As George Carlin would say: "It's all bull$hit and it ain't good for you ladies and gentlemen."
Greeks are very good at lying and cheating,
You know those stereotypes are like the Polish stupid jokes...which I know make you keel over....
Yes - some Macedonian lands are still under Greek occupation. We have already established that.
Yes from acts that happened well over 2,000 years ago...and all the Balkan borders were erased for thousands of years of the Roman Empire, Byzantium, and Ottoman Empire...I doubt any of the borders in the Balkans are accurate. But Torq, what about the German and Lithuanian lands under Polish occupation from just a century ago ;-) Maybe Greeks should give up Macedonia and Poland can give up the Danzig, Silesia, and Lithuanian lands and we can call it fair game? Of course you'd never agree with that, since nationalistic emotions hypocritically brew in you as well...just like the Greeks...only difference the country. After Poland was raped inside and out by the Russians and Germans, just as the Turks did to Greece; borders were up for grabs, and the Greco's and Polak's got what they could get their hands on.
as ancient Romans have with today's Italians LOL
Don't flame Italians...Greeks and Polish people wish they could have a country as prosperous as Italy...
