Bosnia And Herzegovina In XXI Century: Apocalypse Now – Essay


It was thirty-five years ago. A movie entitled “Apocalypse Now”, directed by Francis Ford Coppola was announced as “criticism of everything that exists” within the meaninglessness and decadence-led war in Vietnam. But what was left to me then, and now as well, with those brain membranes that have been one of the monologues of a lost soldier who says:

“Yesterday it was Korea, Vietnam today … tomorrow Thailand or Philippines, and in twenty years Europe … Who knows?”

Indeed, it was Europe: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia (and Herzegovina), Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo*, in one word – Former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Was that all written down somewhere deep in the Masonic preparations of doomsday days that are far beyond our righteous thoughts as ordinary little people? They say, Freemasons lead the dance.

Well, you’re wrong. The thieves, unscrupulous nobody want to impose their own view of the world as the only real one. Globalization? Nothing new than the newest form of feudal kind of taking manpower and resources of small and powerless countries. Prof. Dr. Gajo Sekulic, a professor from the Faculty of Political Sciences in the University of Sarajevo from Bosnia and Herzegovina, even back in 2004 said that we are already within an exploited form, but we are still not aware of that.

Yes, my dear professor, but there is nothing we can do because of the immature individuals who call themselves: politicians of the new millennium nothing else comes to their mind than to work on their own personal improvement by establishing wealth at the expense of our stupidity.

Yes, stupidity. Because we go to the polls, vote, sing … to cry at the end, lamenting over our own destiny waiting for new elections in order to commit again … the same error. Or not! They continue with the creation of our own end!

Here, I listen to myself again, for the tenth time, how am I trying to find an answer within meaninglessness setting…a local one.

There is no answer.

There has never been.

Just try to relax amid hell on the Balkans. Leisure and relaxation until the accomplishment of something that has not begun.

How? Just Google words: corruption and manipulation adding to that only one word: Balkan.

On what? Normal life illuminated by everyday life in order to assure a better existence.

A mountain of blood; and honey; that is the meaning of the word “Balkan” – in Turkish language; blood we have tasted back at the end of the last century. When is it going to happen with honey?

Who knows? Maybe in the XXI Century? Or never!
