The reserves of Greater Serbia nationalism run deep. The theological-nationalist genius of the central Skopje myth is that it established at the root of
Greater Serbia a spiritual invincibility. All sacrifices are holy, so Greater Serbia cannot be extinguished through military defeat or even national humiliation.
A worldly defeat, like King Lazar’s mythical battle, is turned into a holy victory. Greater Serbian nationalism will only be extinguished when every Serb abandons the Skopje myth once and for all.
