I don't have to add shit....
Half-truths, generalisations and mystifications.....You've just described your own view on the period and added a liberal amount of left wing anti-monarchism.
You know what is your other problem? You assume too much. I make my stances clear in words that are mine. Then when people speak up in reply and criticism of them I reply to the actual words before me.
I don`t reply to what I think the poster is by the words he said. If somebody says he doesn`t like mayonese I don`t attack him by saying he is a ketchup maniac.
If I say a sentance you wrote down is not true, then I mean the sentance you wrote down is not true. I don`t mean it means histories of Croats and Serbs are the same or even alike.
When I say something I mean what I say I don`t mean whatever it is in your mind that I must be saying or thinking by that.
So once again, if I am anti-monarchist, because I see nothing nationalistic about it. That makes me "left wing". Really? Is that supposed to discredit me? And define "left wing" while you are at it.
I am a nationalist. (Is nationalism left wing? If so then fuck me I am left wing.) But I am not a nationalist in any Western sense of the word. I am not a nationalist in the sense of state worship which is what nationalism means for example in France or USA. I am a nationalist that bases his nationalism on narod, because narod is the basis of our nations, not the state buerocracy (unlike in France or USA). Which is why the only kind of state that is fully legitimate in my eyes is the state which servers only the interest of the narod and no other interests besides that. Which is why monarchies annoy me, because they at the very least in addition to the interest of the narod (and historicaly often against it) serve the interests of the privileged. The whims of the monarch, his vanity, his gloryseeking, his comfortable life, luxuries and wealth, his power and influence, his special status, sometimes even his cult. Does that make me left wing? No that is actually neither left wing nor right wing position. It is an Ethnic Nationalist position. It is Ethnic Nationalism taken to its full, Nationalism developed to its logical conclusions.
You *can be* a left-wing nationalist, for example if you belive the interests of the narod are best served by state socialism, but as it happens I am a right-wing nationalist because I belive the interests of the narod are best served by minimal government and unabashed capitalism.
