That Milosevic's ideas did inspire nationalism.



Again, you're using the word 'nationalism' to mean one's nationality is superior to another.

If you think Milosevic inspired that kind of nationalism, that would be like saying that Martin Luther King inspired racism.

Up to a point, Marthin Luther King did inspire hatred of the jewish in his speech about "What to do with the jewish?"

IŽll try to provide a quote.

Edited to add: forget my stupid post. It was a letter from luther king jr and it was proven to be a hoax.

I am very sorry. How embarrassing!

I was going to delete the previous post, however I do not want to hide my ignorance, I want to overcome it.

Moderators are welcome to delete it if they see it fit to do that, though.

Once again, i apologise for such an ignorant comment.

Nothing wrong with learning.

Besides, apologies here are seen as a sign of weakness. Better just to blame someone else and call them an asshole.

Certain snide comments notwithstanding, we appreciate such intellectual honesty.

Snide does not necessarily mean false. And it was not snide, just my observation. Perhaps true, perhaps not true, but your snide remark did not add any information to the subject. Saying "WE" makes you a spokesman for all people who post here? We think not.

Gorgo, I understand you feel martyred by some here, but certain things shouldn't be generalized: it only weakens your arguments.

I use the word "we" when, as a moderator, I speak for the administration of this website (though clearly not for all members).

We would prefer it if nobody used ad hominem arguments here, but we also refuse to restrict free speech except in the most extreme (or illegal) cases.

In other words, you have no idea what I'm talking about, you just prefer to make snide remarks about things.
