Battles For Victims Of Communist Crimes And Croatia’s Homeland War

When politicians in positions of relative or specific power in Croatia, especially those beating the drum of integration between Croatia and its diaspora, visit the diaspora, which is made up of all sides of historical political spectrums, one would expect them to park their politics at the door and engage with all sides. Given that […]

Party System, Voting System and Media Conspiring To Hollow Out Croatian Democracy

To listen in on any halfway serious discussion of politics in Croatia these days is to eavesdrop on a cacophony, on a racket of dissatisfaction, anger and disillusionment. Issues come and go several times a day in the hothouse of political crises and divisions that Croatia appears to chronically be in, but the underlying unease […]

The Menace Of Croatia’s Communist Ideals (Im)moral Compass

Watching Croatia’s current political discourse (and deadlock, political and economic chaos, government crises, unrelenting emergence of the identity of communist revenge against the victory in Croatia’s Homeland War for self-determination, independence and democracy that labels as fascist even the slogan “For Home Ready” (Za Dom Spremni) under which in early 1990’s many sacrificed everything so […]

Croatia: Lustration To Stop Sinking Deeper Into Mediocrity

Do Not Touch The HOS Flag

  The trend in current, recent events in Croatia to do with HOS (Croatian Defence Forces) flag and symbols that it carried and carries, particularly the salutation “For Home Ready” (Za Dom Spremni) call for a somewhat amplified set of observations, which point in the direction of brazen attempts to insult and degrade the very […]

Breaking Bread With The Diaspora

It has come to my attention that the Office of the President of Croatia is on 21 July organising “Open Doors Day for Croatian Diaspora and Croatian Minority Communities Abroad”. One does, however, from the perspective of Croatia itself, wonder why “Croatian ethnic minorities abroad” are separated in this event’s title from the concept of […]

Croatia: Root Out the New Left And Its Kin

On approach to Christmas Day – looking back and looking forward with this brief post. Many would say: deservedly, not a good wrap up for 2016 for the liberalist side of the political field throughout the world and major events and trends of their own making are, hopefully, to cause irreparable damage to key liberal […]
