You haven't made any argument other than insinuating that people may confuse the political party with the state. I have not seen any example of this type of mass confusion anywhere. Perhaps you can provide one?

If you're not interested in playing games, then why start one with a vacuous generalisation that has no place in rational debate?

So, in light of the testimony from a co-prisoner of Karev's brother in addition to the above, do you still stand by your initial statement, whereby you claimed to have understood the reasons why the decision was made, in that 'context'? I don't.

How does Keith Brown present the Macedonians?

It doesn't change at all. The communist authorities had an issue with the Karev name and dealt with it. Don't mistake this for condonation.

If you're interested, have a look at the subject of historical empathy, particularly the seminal work of Ashby and Lee.

Regards to Keith Brown, his work had a particular focus, amongst which is the discrepancy between local history and official narrative. It is worth noting that he does not make any accusations, but has reported on different perspectives.

It's a book that I recommend everyone read. Brown researched through handwritten accounts of the Macedonians who were involved in Krushevo and etc.

Your initial statement seemed to suggest that it was ok for these idiots to exclude Karev's name because the latter's descendants and family were apparent 'bulgarophiles'. The context you seemed to find understandable has been proven to be nothing more than a false accusation, and there is nothing understandable about the actions of those treacherous animals.

It is true that some of Macedonians prefered to join in federation with Bulgaria, but also those who advocated a federation with Yugoslavia (read Serbia) weren't any less traitors.
It is because some of them were members of either the Serbian or Bulgarian communist party, since the CPM didn't existed before it's founding in 1943.
The rest were of the purest patriotic type such as Chento.


Tito, in a letter dated January 16, 1943 to PC CPY for Macedonia forwarded by Svetozar Vukmanovic Tempo, addresses the Macedonian communists with the next:
" it's required mobilization of all forces of our party organization, the immaturity and the liberal attitude toward the "autonomist tendencies" with national character need to be completely eliminated. We didn't striked forcefully enough on those "autonomist" tendencies, which greatly affected our party organization in Macedonia!"

The Communist party have focused all of their powers to fight the Macedonian autonomist tendencies.


And with all respect to your opinion but I agree with Vangelovski about the national symbols used by the political parties.

It is a normal practice to use the national symbols by the political subjects participating in the political life of any country.

Again, nowhere in my posts did I defend the commies or accuse the Karevs.

As for the coat of arms issue, I'll stand by my convictions.

They had a parliamentary committee tasked for this role and they then asked for design submissions and after much wheeling and dealing, they voted for the modified ("Sonchogled") 16-ray Macedonian Sun design.


The following interview (in Macedonian) with Todor Petrov sheds some light on the issue:
Imagine if they do this to change the name? It was clear that the New Greeks stole the symbol from us. If they can change the flag then they can change it back.
