Bosnia And Herzegovina And XXI Century: The Power Of Fear Or Fear Of Power – Essay


In other words, how to connect methodological fear of the West from radical Islamism and Islam from and radical Christianity of the Western provenance and being absurd of fear that permeates, like radioactive waste, within its everyday activity of the ruling parties in Bosnia (and Herzegovina)

Because of the objectivity of the presumed content, my dear professor, at the outset I must quote Adam Curtis, author of the BBC documentary film series “The Power of nightmares” : “In the center of this story are two groups: the American neo-conservatives and the radical Islamists. They have led together the creation of today’s nightmare presented in the form of secret and organized evil force that threatens the entire world, and this nightmare makes possible for politicians to regain their power and authority.

Professor said nothing…

Indeed, it is only necessary to make certain letters that are wordly changes and it comes as following: “In the center of this story, there are three groups: Bosniak neo-fundamentalism, an All-Serbian conzensus directed towards Great Serbia idea and Croatia hypernational exclusivity. They all have together led to the creation of today’s fear presented in the form of a secret and organized domestic force which threatens my people, and that fear for politicians regained power and authority.

But why should the Serbs look at Bosniaks differently than just mere executioners of the will, Wahhabism minded, neo / old / young Muslim ideas? And why should Bosniaks look at Serbs and Croats in a different view than just mere executioners of the Greater Serbian and Greater Croatian fundamentalist idea aimed at final splitting and dividing of Bosnia (and Herzegovina).

Of course, there is also vice-versa relationship.

Professor was still quiet…

Always, and it is really always, just prior to the elections appears a spokespersons, with the lifetime thesis – usable only for this choice- that for the problem of my and for only my people the guilty ones are just the other people and / or peoples. Because it jeopardizes my ability of survival, stay on the ground and origin! And If you do not vote for me, then you vote for the one who yesterday burned your house, crashing your Church and/or Mosque and killed your dweller.

The question that inevitably arises is: How do you defeat the evil of the fear nightmare, that, for almost two decades, has governed in the areas of a heart-shaped state, and even wider?

The answer is really simple, painfully simple:

  • Establishment of the system that will be equipped with powering the judiciary and of the executive power, which love and respect its citizens on the basis of a good conduction by mentioning power and not by the names of individuals that has been respected by their voters, within the nightmarish fear of anarchy that prevails in this country, but also wider – east and west from us;
  • Establishment of verification proceedures of elected candidates every six months. More worthwhile is to establish one Agency that would take care of it than to appoint an authoritative Commission that exists for their own sake only;
  • Through the establishment of the real Act/Bill which will create the pre-conditions for forfeiture of illegally gained property and for everyone and not just for those whom, being now in power, have abused the trust of voters and also of every young citizen who profited from the suffering of the people;
  • Citizen Bosniak, citizen Croat and a citizen Serbs and the other citizens should be able to built their position in a society on the basis of knowledge and not on the basis of catastrophic eligibility;

And, finally, that the responsibility and knowledge become a de facto conditio sine qua non of progress in service rather than de jure adaptability of each of us.

And when will that be, my dear student? … Finally the old professor of mine spoke out.

Never, my dear professor, because this is a lost paradise of its own vanity. It will remain a letter to speak as until now. Just to speak …. because engaged intellectuals in this country are treated as a last Mohican of a country within disappearance. Yes, disappearance.
