Morlachs (in Greek: Μαυροβλάχοι, Mavrovlachi or Mauro-Vlachs, meaning "Black Vlachs"; in Latin sources: Nigri Latini) were a population of Vlach shepherds that lived in the Dinaric Alps (western Balkans in modern use), constantly migrating in search for better pastures for their sheep flocks.
It is not clear as yet exactly how the Morlachs survived, but the slower feudalization of the Western Balkans compared to the west of Europe seem to alleviate their decentralization from the feudal bonds.
By the 15th century, the surviving Morlachs reached the Istrian Peninsula, where their descendants are today mistakenly confused with the Istro-Romanians who are "cici", a distinctly different group from the Morlachs.

  Vlachs - LoveToKnow 1911
In the 14th century the Mavrovlachi or Morlachs extended themselves towards the Croatian borders, and a large part of maritime Croatia and northern Dalmatia began to be known as Morlacchia.
They represent a 15th-century Morlach colony from the Isles of Veglia, and had formerly a wider extension to Trieste and the counties of Gradisca and Gorz.
The Cici have almost entirely abandoned their native tongue, which is the last remaining representative of the old Morlach, and forms a connecting link between the Daco-Roman (or Rumanian) and the Illyroor Macedo-Roman dialects.

 Dalmatia - LoveToKnow 1911
The gamelaws are not strict, and are often evaded by the Morlachs; but moderate sport may be obtained in the fens formed by the Cetina about Sinj, and the lagoons of the Narenta estuary; both regions being frequented by wild swans, geese, duck, snipe and other aquatic birds.
The Morlachs, who constitute the remaining 96%, belong to the Serbo-Croatian branch of the Slavonic race, having absorbed the Latinized Illyrians, Albanians and other alien elements with which they have been associated.
Dalmatian public life is deeply affected by the jealousies which subsist between the Sla y s and the Italians, whose influence, though everywhere waning, remains predominant in some of the towns; and between Orthodox "Serbs," who use the Cyrillic alphabet, and Roman Catholic "Croats," who prefer the Latin.

Morlachs (in Greek: Mavrovlachi or Mauro-Vlachs, meaning "Black Vlachs"; in Latin sources: Nigri Latini) were a population of Vlach (Romanian and possibly Romanized Illyrians) shepherds that lived in the Dinaric Alps (western Balkans in modern use), constantly migrating in search for better pastures for their sheep flocks.
It is not quite clear as yet how Morlachs have made it but the slower feudalization of the Western Balkans compared to the West Europe and the Ottomans' conquering with Morlachs' lifelong military border services to both Turks and Austrians seem to alleviate their keeping out of the feudal bonds.
The first phase of that proactive assimilation of Morlachs took place in Herzegovina and Montenegro where they not only were accepting the language of the Red Croats, but also turning it into a new Slavic language "novoshtokavian" which later on served as the base of Serbo-Croatian.

The Morlachs were emerging spectacularly on the scene, frail and clumsy, suspected by sceptics of setting up a hoax, still eager to signalize those few interested that after all, human stems and resurged identities are more resiliently stubborn than it is usually presumed.
This appellation proved to trigger -as I expected- condescending smiles, and the name itself was used as a form of casual "insult" albeit someone admitted that the Morlachs used to be known as the diligent gardening peasantry of the suburb villages.
Those handful of people who opted for the choice to reinventing themselves as Morlachs (or have they had always a intimate and repressed knowledge of their own origin?) have to be applauded.

 NL16_1: The Vlachs in Bosnia
The borderers or Grenzer on the north and north-western frontier of Bosnia, equally renowned for their military prowess and ferocity, were known as "Vlachs" or "Morlachs", and in 1630 their privileges were re-established by Ferdinand II in a document known as the "Law of the Vlachs" -- "Statuta Valachorum".
Because of their fearsome methods of irregular warfare the Morlachs acquired an evil reputation, and were regarded as primitive and brutal people.
Inside Bosnia, the term Morlach was not so much used for the martial Vlachs who went to fill the border areas under the Ottomans.

Since Morlachs had lived such a time on the very Triplex Confinium between the Habsburg Monarchy, Venetian Republic and the Ottoman Empire, it is interesting to follow how this fact reflected, or did not reflect, on their way of life.
Fifth, the relationship of the Morlachs towards the environment, natural surroundings and the eco-system.
The Morlachian case provides a concrete example of how social organisation finds their own, often unpredictable and “illogical” laws, and how the standpoint of adaptation to environmental conditions represented by the discourse of cultural ecology is not everywhere and always a rule.

Wells was, of course, inspired by conditions he saw in 19th Century England and he was commenting on capitalism as he perceived it.
That's the way it is in post-American America, and until the white middle class understands that they are being oppressed and are being treated as patsies, it won't get better.
But, such a robust civil rights movement can't exist until the white middle class understands the anti-life, alienating, dehumanizing nature of our present society and finds its way to the truth of nature that the most important aspect of all living things is genes and the invisible links between creatures who share the same genes.

It should be noted here that, on the basis of linguistic criteria, the Morlachs (Maurovlachs), a Latin-speaking group on the coast and in the immediate hinterland of Dalmatia who disappeared a century ago, must be regarded as a different entity from the Aroumanian Vlachs.
And two more Latin-speaking groups which still survive south of the Danube are also separate from the Vlachs.

However, it is the Morlachs who are the most 'foreign' in this history, and they were not a pleasant people - at least not at altitude:
"Professor Dominic Mandic has recently adduced evidence to prove that they were the descendants of Mauretanian military units stationed by the Romans in the Balkan and Danubian areas...The mountain Morlachs were superstitious, dishonest, and distinguished by lax morals and low living standards."
Having displaced the original Croatian inhabitants, these lax people became Serbianized, and "their descendants today, the so-called Croatian Serbs, often consider themselves to be ethnically Serbian." Guldescu's book was written in the US, when Tito was solidly in power in Yugoslavia.
