  1. Re: Massive rally of Greeks declaring that Macedonia is Hellas, and the leftist propaganda machine

    On the planet Earth, where I live, Greece is independent.


    Isn't it obvious why I don't agree with that? Because you're a pushing an us-versus-them narrative. You are not more ancient Macedonian...

    Ah, so it's a different thing then. It also looks like the Seleucid setup is different in this mode because Bactria is shown as a satrapy under them.
