That is a thought provoking piece of text from a 19th century nationalism perspective. Ethnic/linguistic boundaries blurred, assimilation, conceptual ambiguity. The reality is that all modern nations created out of the Balkan pool had varying degrees of these issues.

And if we extend this further to the rest of Europe, I am positive many other nations are still suffering from this un-natural state. The Albanians deserve their modern existence like everyone else, but they are heading down the Greek path of delusion to their detriment. Nobody aside from Nazi Germany and Uncle Woodrow (maybe cousin Clinton) has had much of a soft spot for the Albanians.
