He pretty much demolishes the Greek myth with that article, thank you Kyrios Litoksou!

This is brilliant.

Quote:
Greek historians, up until the last two decades when individual exceptions started to
emerge, have ignoring or counterfeiting sources and have produced works of a purely
ideological character. Greek linguists put on “blinkers” to prevent them from meeting a
different language abundant in language dialects, while Greek folklore experts cut off
completely certain geographical regions in their research so that they don’t come across
the customs, the dances and the songs of the “barbarians”.
And then this:

Quote:
Willful or
unreasonable interpretations of facts certainly have to be preferred before the
conjuncture of circumstances, because they offer higher resistance to the ideological
attacks of nationalism’s opponents.
The pieces of this mythical mosaic come together in the time vortex of nationalistic
intellectuals. They are great writers, inspirational story tellers and virtuosos.
He explains how Greek historians are at the front of the Greek myth and leading the charge, and how even the most reliable data is ommitted to ensure the myth goes unchallenged.
