Greek church is powerful but it is definitely not above the state.

The Institution of Greek Archaeology has more power than the church and in some cases more powerful than the state.

Fascination with antiquity.
I have an old joke they might be interested in.

[QUOTE=Daskalot;847]1. that is wishful thinking on your part.

2. yes it does, if it exist for Greek.[/QUOTE]

1.And what is the "truth then ??

2.So..according to you..the macedonian speakers in Greece (most of them your beloved Grecomani") are Greeks.

Areianos 09-06-2008 03:06 AM

Absolutely. It's part of our past why shouldn't we take care of it?

[QUOTE=Petros Houhoulis;838]Back at that time, the folks divided themselves according to religion, not according to ethnicity. This is why chaos erupted after the last state that was classifyng its' citizens according to religion (the Ottoman empire) gave its' place to ethnic states.

The funny thing is that the locals had no national consciene up to that time. Do you believe it, or do you want me to quote Misirkov again (And Victor Roudometoff).[/QUOTE]

Of course there were people only relating to their village/town/religion, so was the case in the young Hellenic kingdom as well.

The national awakening process was identical all over Europe.

This does not make the Macedonians less Macedonian nor does it make the Greeks less Greek.

Take care of it by all means.
But don't try to be it.

Why shouldn't we take lessons from the past to progress for the future?

Risto the Great 09-06-2008 03:11 AM

Whatever floats your boat.
Lesson number one:
[I]Alexander loved the Persians so much that he adopted much of their culture.[/I]

Go for it.
