South-East Europe On Edge Of Civilization: Self-Blame Strengthen – Essay


“To let  individual blame for their misfortune, because of the failure of their intelligence, their abilities, or their efforts. So, instead of rebelling against the economic system, the individual autodesvalida and guilt, which creates a depression, one of whose effects is to inhibit its action. And, without action, there is no revolution!…”

In Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo*, and Slovenia there is a very popular song from the band No Smoking Orchestra from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (Zabranjeno pušenje) titled Museum of Revolution from 2009 in which there are the words:

“I am big and all of you are the small beings, in principal you are lower species
If you are so clever, why you do not have a couple a million of Euros…”

Why is that?

Because, the environment in which there exists the manipulation with religion, nationalism, corruption, education and establishment has made that possible. The most popular characters are the ones who are on “black pages” of the newspaper and the one who cheated the State’s tax office.

Having that in mind, people suffer confusion when faced with the failure of the “rule of law” and the establishment of the “law of the rule”. They keep asking themselves exactly those words quoted above from Noam Chomsky’s Ten Strategies of Manipulation.

Complete societies within South-East Europe, regardless if in power are from the “left” and/or “right” and/or “center” or of any kind have been established in a way to protect the ones who are in power, instead of protecting the people.

That is why the biggest number of the employed people within the abovementioned countries are within state-owned offices, within bureaucracy buildings. They are secure with everything and they will, for sure, defend that system, while the unemployment rate varies from 20% (Croatia) up to 44% (Bosnia and Herzegovina).

How should the media literacy be established “abusing” exactly this Number 9 Strategy of Chomsky’s? To establish non-governmental, independent bodies that will do independent research (with the obligation of the Parliaments to obey the findings) within the whole fields of economy (privatization process after 1990, taxation issues, corruptions…) and…have the TV, Radio shows, Internet portals and social networks (all in the same time) which will on daily basi inform the public about the findings…Not just punish the thieves (as it is now for just a couple of years) while their money is waiting for them when they get out 24 months from now, but also to take it all, really all, from them and give it back to the state. Of course, if it has been proved that there money was “earned” illegally, then they should be put in jail for a long, long time.

There is a simple saying of mine which might be reflected on all states of South-East Europe:

“The difference between a mob/mafia guy and politician is that mob/mafia guy does illegally what politician does legally.”

When we beat that, we will be able to avoid the Self-Blame Strengthen “task”.
