Kosovo bubble - From inflation of virtual identity to the end of History

The article offers an insight into the relationship between religion, linguistics and economy within the historical and postmodern context of identity creation in Kosovo. relating it to the theory of Poststructuralism and the Bretton Woods economic system. Just as Poststructuralism denies the existence of truth in its anti-essentialism, and as the Bretton Woods economy operates on a money-lacking basis in gold and real value, so do Albanian politics of identity try to constitute on the specious projections concerning nation, language, and history. The consequence of the Bretton Woods system is an economic bubble, which in the end always bursts due to its loss of connection with real value; thus in this article we aim to show that the region of Kosovo is itself one kind of a virtual bubble the bursting of which evokes post-humanism and the end of history with grave consequences for the real world.
