Transylvania (Ardeal, Erdély, Siebenbürgen, Ardyalo, etc) was an old and distinct state. Romanians, Hungarians, Saxons, Roma (Gypsies), other ethnic groups who identify themselves as Transylvanians and also friends of Transylvania are welcomed here.
7. Transilvanie patrie dulce, ţară a părinţilor, frumuseţe, slavă ţie, fii tăi în armonie să-i unească doar un dor. (traducere de Dan Dănilă)
Impletit cu putin misticism dar suna destul de tolerant, nu? Asta e Transilvania care-mi place. It has some mystical references but it sounds pretty tolerant, isn't it? This is the Transylvania I like. It is an anthem which promotes tolerance among people (even religious tolerance). It seems that that spirit of tolerance survived because we didn't have civil war like others in similar situations. Did you know that Transylvanian Unitarian Church is the oldest Unitarian church in the world? Being isolated, it has remained just a theistic church but still, it is a very tolerant form of religion. Dennett said that we can't kill the religious viruses but we should encourage the mild version of them to exist. This church promotes this kind of mild version of religion. Let's not allow ourselves to be turned against each other, one ethnic group against the other, we just become easily controlled by outsiders and not by ourselves. We also have to know our history and be aware of our culture (with different ethnic varieties).
