South-East Europe on the edge of civilization – Depending who you ask
Today is another “D” day for South-East Europe. At least for Croatia.
Croatia is inaugurating its new, and first-ever female, president. But, what goes around comes around. Once something isn’t solved, it will appear again — with a little help from its/his/her friends.
On the East side of this part of Europe there is Aleksandar Vučić (Serb), the guy who is now Prime Minister, and experienced a change from being an extreme nationalist to now being a messenger of peace and cooperation. On the West side, there is Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović (Croat) who won, as the New York Times stated the presidential elections 2015 and in, “Her speech suggested a return to the nationalistic politics that dominated Croatia in the postwar dissolution of Yugoslavia.”
Nor should we forget Tomislav Nikolić, President of Serbia who has never distanced himself from the nationalists (a recent “wrong” move of his was the strong support for General Ljubiša Diković, who is allegedly under suspicion for crimes committed against Muslims in 1994/95 from BiH and Albanians in Kosovo it 1999, as stated by the Humanitarian Law Center from Belgrade, Serbia).
There is a missing person to make “Four Future Aces” for South-East Europe.
Such a person is Tomislav Karamarko, and as the polls are all suggesting, could be the future Prime Minister of Croatia by the end of 2015, and who as the leader of the Croatian Democratic Party, is a nationalist from the bottom of his heart — and he is not hiding that at all.
So, where are the humans among these Four Aces?
The biggest mistake made by the Left Wing parties of South East Europe within the past 25 years (including all six former ex-Yugoslav republics) was their having “hungry eyes” for the easiest way to govern through fundamental, ridiculous and simple means, while placing or blaming all mistakes within the transition period from one system (socialism) to another one (capitalism) on others, while claiming that the guilty ones are “other and different”.
But who are they?
They are people of the same kind, but with different national and cultural backgrounds. Not knowing (have they?) that the thief does not have a national background and that he/she is a simply — a thief!
The Four Aces are coming to determine a destiny of more than, at least, 25 million people of South Europe (or even wider, who knows?). This essay is just a simple warning, because these Aces are very similar fellows among Muslims, Albanians, Slovenians, Macedonians and “others” within the area.
What can we expect within this area? As the title said: Would you like to become human? Do not hate other people!
The problem is that all of four of these Aces have a foundation made of concrete within their feet that is based on exactly that – a hatred of the “other and those who are different”.
As a result, there is nothing to expect than even more hatred and a “back to the future” of the “beautiful” old times of hatred and national exclusivity that led us in the recent past to a bloody war within the area. Should we expect something similar in the nearest future? Perhaps, all depends on what The Bilderberg Group and similar groups will decide about people/nations actions against citizens.
The funny truth is that the collapse of socialism has been reduced by political infestation. However, we just need to get rid of capitalism!
What is after that?
