Macedonian Brothers, if you renounce your Greekness then what will happen to you? You are afraid to let go the illusion of Hercules, Jason, the ancient Greeks, their history, the "doxa" and all that jazz, etc. Do not be afraid. We have our history, our culture, nationality, and nation. We have rights. We are not sub-humans as the Greeks want us to believe. We are Macedonians. We want to honour our heroes, our grandfathers, our people. The Macedonian landscape has been soaked with blood, sweat and tears from Macedonians, not Kolokotroni, Ypsilantis, or ?ouboulina.

If you are a Gerkoman, in the process of declaring yourself a Macedonian with responsibilities to the Macedonian people and nation, to you, dear Brother, we apologize. This article is for those Gerkomani who continue to support the Greeks and their propaganda. These Gerkomani will die as Gerkomani. We say, "The hell with you, you were no good for Macedonia, you are no good to the Macedonian people." In the history of the Macedonian people you will be remembered as traitors, lackys to the Greeks : You were never Greek. You will never be Greek. You will die Gerkomani in shame.

REMEDY FOR GERKOMANIA
Accept yourself for who you are. If you desperately want to be Greek, analyze your desperation why, and be honest about it. All the people in this world do not choose their nationality. They are born into it. Answer this question : What is in the best interest of the Greeks? Is it the physical existence of the Slavophones (that's you) or the land you occupy?
