Topic: Macedonia: Civilizational Culture of Choice
The Western worlds cultural foundation is based on early Greek culture. Hellenism proved to be strong dominant culture. Those in closest proximity to Greeks Hellenized willingly and voluntarily, subscribing to Hellenic Ideals and core values as they developed. Ancient-Greeks are accredited for laying down the foundational ground-work on which Western civilization is based. Hellenism's Ideals and core values have been adopted by the West, but what are they, what are these Hellenic Ideals and core values learned-peoples in western society hold so dear. Humanism, Idealism, Rationalism are prime examples, but there are more: Freedom, Democracy, Indivisualism, Self-Reliance, Seeking being guided by Truth, Seeking Ideal perfect beauty, Ethics and Standards, Education and the pursuit of universal knowledge...all of these factors could be viewed as reference-points on which early Greeks guided their thoughts and actions. So it's really not that surprising, Western Europeans seeing something of themselves in ancient-Greeks - that is why the concept of being descended from them is such a powerful one.

Greek culture has endured there in the Haemus-peninsula for millennia...a cultural linguistic space northern-Greeks proudly protected from barbarian invasion incursions and attacks. Macedonians are accredited for defending Hellenism. The Western worlds cultural-historical narrative rests on King Philip of Macedon protecting the northermost extremities of Hellenic world. His son Alexander the Great is accredited for spreading Hellenism, Greek culture, Greek-language, knowledge sapience and wisdom to the orient and the farthest reaches of the eastern world. Greek cultural linguistic space expanded, Hellenism became universal culture - the rest is history.

The Western worlds long-established cultural-historical narrative rests on Macedonians being Centum-Greek speakers, Hellenic-peoples spreading Hellenism. Latin-speaking Romans saw them that way, they also saw something of themselves in ancient-Greeks...Roman-culture is Greek-culture refined - Roman jurisdiction, Greek wisdom form the basis on which Western society developed. Preserving historical-cohesion is necessary for protection of Western societies social-cohesion. Having come this far on Greco-Roman civilizational principles, Western society is now facing civilizational choice (i) to develop on same, or (ii) to develop on different cultural principles, Ideals and core values. For the latter to succeed necessitates the destruction of the former. The incremental erosion of Western worlds cultural historical narrative and heritage based on Greco-Roman civilizational principles began when FYRoM was awarded recognition as Republic of Macedonia.

November 2004, on the back of anti-Hellenic, anti-Western advice...poor, substandard, academically-flawed advice. GW Bush was advised to recognize minor Slavic country FYRoM as Republic of Macedonia. Nobody of worth, Political Diplomatic or Academic confuses Paeonia for Macedonia or ex-Yugoslavs for Macedonians, yet this ill-judged, ill thought-out advice was issued, paving the way for FYRoM to utilize sovereign rights to fullest possible potential. FYRoM now stakes claim to all things Macedonian - Name, Identity, History, Heritage, Legacy. Anti-Hellenic, anti-Western mind-architects started a campaign to erode the Western worlds cultural historical narrative in order to establish minor Slavic country as Republic of Macedonia. In their eyes, history is insignificant means nothing, like something to ridicule. In their eyes, important things are Money, Commerce and Trade cacooned protected in security umbrella. In their eyes, erasing Hellenic-Identity of Macedonia and Macedonians is first step to eroding Western worlds cultural foundation paving the way for new replacement culture. In their eyes, Global Monolithic Culture is promoted above and beyond time served culture of choice.
