Responding to an assertion by Gerald Knaus…
Athens and Skopje face a [prisoner's dilemma]: if neither side believes that a solution is possible, and acts on this, both will lose.
…Zarko Trajanoski wrote on Facebook:
However, the analogy with “prisoner's dilemma” is not only false, but very offensive: Athens is not a prisoner, but a prison guard and perhaps a political torturer in this case. And the outcome of this political torture, aided by Sofia as well, is the rise of the Macedonian ethno-nationalism and the decline of the liberalism, democracy and human rights.
He later provided an elaborate explanation in a blog post [mk].
There is no freedom of speech in FYROM. Nobody knows Dame Gruev’s telegram to Sofia ( http://www.network54.com/Forum/415923/message/1126215175 ) and nobody knows hymn to Macedonians’ Greekness written by Plutarch in “Fortune and Virtue of Alexander” ( http://www.starkrealities.com/fortune.html )
