Default Ahmeti's Village. The Political Economy Of Interethnic Relations In Macedonia

Yes this is a bit old but not much has changed and is relevant for many other municipalities where Albanians live, it's for all those who truly want to see an issue from both sides with a balanced view which offers facts and figures on how non equal Albanian regions have been treated by the State.

Please take the time to read it and and try to see an Albanian perspective.

If you think all the regions and villages populated by Macedonians have it much better then you're even more delusional than your diatribes in the other thread seem to suggest. And why is the bar set so high for Macedonia as opposed to every other poor Balkan country with rampant nepotism and corruption? Your people practically run that quasi-state up north, is the utopia project working there? You can't even get your act together in Kosovo where you're a majority and you want to dictate terms to Macedonia where you're a minority? Give me a break. Here's an idea, try being constructive towards the country you live in rather than destabilising it whenever things don't go your way. Here's another one, try working towards obtaining an education or experience, or developing reputable and respectable characteristics, then go for the job that you want, rather than expecting it just because you supposedly belong to a 25% minority. I would rather a decent, hardworking and sensible individual as a police officer in Macedonia, for example, over a lazy, self-entitled or disrespectful moron, even if the former was from a minority group and the latter was a Macedonian. I am all for equality as citizens, meaning everybody is equal before the laws of the state. I also support minority rights, so long as they don't negatively impact on the integrity and sovereignty of the state. However, when it comes to core matters relating to the national and cultural identity of the state, then that is a matter for Macedonians and should be based on Macedonian history. That's the way it is in most countries and that's the way it should be in Macedonia.

The strength of that element within the ethnic Albanian minority in Macedonia which causes problems is not organic, instead it rests solely on the inability of Macedonians to unite. Whatever the population numbers may be, Macedonians are still an absolute majority in the Macedonian republic and if they were to put aside their petty differences they would not be so susceptible to these issues. Macedonians need to take heed of the statement made by one of Macedonia's most famous sons; the world is a field for the cultural competition among nations. At the moment, we're being competitive with each other rather than towards those who have an agenda against Macedonia. That is why we're losing. But despite the many setbacks, it is not all lost. Macedonians can still make a positive difference and change their fate if they retain any of the spirit that was so prominent in their forefathers. And minorities loyal to the state should be engaged in the process and support this endeavour.
