Of Croatian Blood – Of Foreigner Substance

Foreigner Act and the diaspora: Of Croatian blood – of foreigner substance?

“You Will Fall Madly, Deeply, Truly in love with Croatia” – Second Generation Croatian Diaspora On The Move

    The Croatian diaspora is an endless source of inspiration and hope for the homeland despite the frustrations that constantly arise from a rather stark neglect by Croatia to effectively lead ongoing and consistent campaigns that keep the homeland/diaspora relationship a vital part of the homeland life. As to inspiration and hope, Australian Croatian […]

Croatia: When Flippant Psychiatry Deals At Helm Of Parliament

    The need for lustration in Croatia is at a critical stage. The inadequate and ineffective jurisprudential addressing of this absolute and unquestionable need, that serves the purpose of cleansing Croatia of communist mindset and practices, is creating destructive social pressures on an already ideologically divided nation, often stirred into contagions of despair due […]

Croatia: Sorry Prime Minister – There’s Nothing Sober About Communist Crimes

Like in some disturbingly teasing political oh-no-not-this-reality-show-again, Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic keeps showing us through his actions that he is out of touch with reality when it comes to duly acknowledging the serious divisions in society sprouting from the past totalitarian regimes and is alarmingly way off the mark when it comes to dealing […]

Croatia: Only People Of Integrity Must Vie For Public Office

Almost 27 years into its existence and the Croatian Parliament often seems to struggle tolerating or even acknowledging those members who sit in it and who persist in naming policies of priority to be developed and implemented, which the government of the day has failed to address. Initiatives crucially important to the advancement of Croatia’s […]

Donald Trump Vibrations In Croatia

If anything, in these American presidential elections, a convincing majority of […]

EC’s Donald Tusk’s Pep Talk Elates Croatian Parliament

European Council president’s, Donald Tusk’s Monday 16 January speech in the Croatian parliament celebrating 25 years since the international recognition of Croatia’s independence was a well-received congratulatory recitation of Croatia’s accomplishments with a succinct nudge as to future directions awaiting the country.

Croatia: Morals Of Lizards And Other Communist Depravities

  It is axiomatic that politics is the art of the possible, and moral considerations in government will reflect the ideology harboured by those who govern and those who wield power. As profusely as Croatia had bled in its Homeland War during 1990’s as it sought to secede from communist Yugoslavia and build freedom and […]

About Removing Liberty For Serbia On Croatian Soil

As Americans grow increasingly weary of involvement in messy overseas conflicts and espionage-flavoured intrigues, foreign dignitaries’ travel to US has in this transition time between two administrations grown increasingly more complicated —and potentially perilous to their political aggregate — as they try to show their foreign policy bona fides to America.
