We are Europeans, but we do not live in Europe. We don’t know what we are. Citizens living next to the state border. The conflict between the local and the state. National identity and the individual. The lies of the citizen. Hungarians, Serbs, Croatians, Bunjevac, Ruthenians, whatever you like... A multicultural paradise. The appearance of interculturalism. Multiculti = Nil-culti. We can understand each other’s language, but we can’t for the life of us understand what the other one says. We understand nothing. We live in harmonious mixed marriages, and we fly at each other’s throats in the main square. The Square of the Victims of Fascism. Union and separatism. How can you imagine the future, if you don’t learn, and you don’t teach your child the other’s language? In a way that only one of us will survive?
Long live tourism! Long live the protocol! Long live the lies!
