This truth is even more viable for peoples that live in perpetual vicinity. In the case of the Aromanians and the Albanians, it was more than mere vicinity, it was cohabitation: both are branches of the same Thracian-Illyrian trunk, while one of them was pruned by the Roman gene: the two communities are bound to reflect one another precisely in the image that each build for the other. And it is precisely the fact that collective representations deal with extreme values that does not leave room for the intervention of extrinsic value judgments.
