"Splinters of the Empire", because of their marginal nature, have a certain ability to synthesize. They are able to overcome the mutual inertia of "Agents of Influence" and "Genuine-Armenians", creating a linkage between the western Enlightenment and those bearers of national consciousness that do not avoid critical consideration of their own roots and perceive their "Armeniannes" not just as a gift, but as a task to be performed.
