Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"In line with my rejection of the 'nation' concept..."
Unfortunately this is a fantasy. I had same fantasy before and naively believed that USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are multicultural societies...No bloody way and don't let anyone lie about this to you. They are not ...When ever it is needed (like now) for political reasons politicians through media and propaganda machine very easily can start national and resist hatred. It's always been there (inside people) but it's suppressed for political and economic reasons when necessary. Multiculturalism is fairytale unfortunately. At first I thought it's just us in ex - YU that have those feelings and are easy to manipulate but its world wide phenomenon...To be honest my hair goes up from what I see and feel is coming worldwide. I am sorry to be pessimistic and bitter again. And about economy and brotherhood we Serbs have a say :"Yes we are brothers but our wallets are not sisters (or brothers)"
