NORTH Macedonia enters the European Union as if it were the Kingdom of Heaven – alone, without anything, naked and barefoot, freed from everything that makes and determines it in this cruel and unpredictable world.
The Macedonian case, apart from truly denying the atheistic nature of the EU, is a crystal testimony to the endless blackmail and conditions that some have to fulfill in order to escape from the Balkan cobblestones to the Union that “unites in differences”. Provided it is not at war with Russia, of course.
The dark sea of ”moranja” found itself in front of Skopje on the European road. An agreement must be made with the Albanians, the name of the country must be changed, the Albanians must be integrated, Greece must be respected, and democracy, human rights and freedoms must be observed.
The Macedonians pushed through the Prespa agreement, crossed themselves, appeased the stubborn Greeks, turned a blind eye countless times to both natural and unnatural Albania, and solved the church dispute with pride. But in vain. A Bulgarian train arrived with all the standards according to which “Macedonians are Bulgarians, but Yugoslavia brainwashed them so they forgot that”. Macedonian language is more or less Bulgarian, history too. Bulgarians will, there is every chance, soon also in the Macedonian constitution, as a special category.
It is rarely mentioned that the southern neighborhood spent a lot of energy, and some money, on building a new identity. Everything that smells of Serbia and Serbs was aired out of it, and some, as usually happens, were also declared for the occupation, conquest, imperialism of Belgrade and all that. Alexander the Great, for whom the world was small, emerged, from there, alongside heroes such as Goce Delčev or Pitu Guli.
Some would say, at least Serbia did not have to change its name, because it would be difficult to come up with a new one. And even with him, it would be difficult to fit into Brussels theology, which teaches that the Kingdom of Heaven certainly does not belong to everyone.
