Croatia: Lustration To Stop Sinking Deeper Into Mediocrity

  I have lost count of the number of times General Zeljko Glasnovic, Member of Croatian Parliament for the Diaspora, has emphasised and warned in his public and parliamentary appearances that the Croatian diaspora is purposefully excluded from Croatian social, economic and political life and development…and that this must be rectified in order for Croatia […]

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 […]

Croatia: Bell Tolls For Yugoslav Communists

  The enduring determination of Croatia’s defenders – war veterans from 1990’s Homeland war – in rejecting the still-present communist mindset in the governance of the country and the growing swell of smaller or new political parties and their followers designed to “change Croatia away from communist heritage” in essence mean that the bell tolls […]

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: 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 […]

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 […]

Croatia: De-communisation By Any Means Necessary

  A couple of hundred university students at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (a.k.a. Faculty of Philosophy) of the University of Zagreb have thrown their rioting and protesting weight against the current Dean Vlatko Previsic. They insist he must resign or be forced into retirement as he turns 71 in few months. They […]

Croatian Parliament: The Detrimental Representation of Ethnic Minorities (?)

  At the time of its formation in 1990 Croatian parliament and a rather large number of NGO institutions were devised and established in such a way that Croatia’s diverse population in the ethnic sense was and remains rather well represented. There are currently eight (out of 151) seats in parliament dedicated to representing ethnic […]

Croatia: Communist Crimes – Two Criminals Down Many Yet To Fall

  Croatia’s former Social Democrat (formerly known as League of Communists) government led by Zoran Milanovic as PM, as well as president Ivo Josipovic, had tried their utmost to avoid the extradition to Germany of former communist Yugoslavia secret police/UDBA operators, Josip Perkovic and Zdravko Mustac. They even passed a law in July 2013 (known […]

Croatia: Franjo Tudjman Finally Stands Tall As National Unity Deemed Paramount

  President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic has Friday 19 February 2016 on the occasion of marking one year in office hosted within “Days of open doors” a ceremony of unveiling at the foyer of the Office of the President in Zagreb a bronze bust by sculptor Kruno Bosnjak of Croatia’s first president Franjo Tudjman.   […]

Croatia: Still Hostage of Communist Fury

    The violent communist furore unleashed from Serbia and within Croatia from rebel Serbs and pro-Communists in 1991 when Croats voted overwhelmingly to secede from communist Yugoslavia has not died down to a tolerable degree despite the horrible war of aggression being long over, with Croatia – a victorious independent state on its way […]
