Now in vessels which are in a state of mutiny and by sailors who are mutineers, how will the true pilot be regarded? Will he not be called by them a prater, a star-gazer, a good-for-nothing?[1]

am part of World Macedonian Congress Australia , thanks Bill

My helplessness is what prompted me to do something , where am unable to physically assist, from home. It is truly bleak , the "agreement' basically wipes our identity away
