Croatia: Stjepan Mesic And The Scourge Of Communist Past

At best, Josip Broz Tito was a complex, conniving and controversial character. His supporters keep saying he led Yugoslavia to free it from fascism because he was an antifascist. His detractors simply point to the fact his Communist “revolution” directly resulted in the murders of more than a million in a country of barely 15 […]

Exorcising Croatia Of Remnants Of Communism

Almost 25 years since its declaration of independence from communist Yugoslavia, Croatia (as other states of former Yugoslavia) has not in its entirety come to terms with the tyranny of communism and is infested with demons of communism at all levels of the society and state-governance. Many former communists and/or their descendants evidently ignore the […]

Croatia: Finally – Tito’s Bust Goes Bust

Croatia: Communist Remnants Defy Sanctions Against Russia

  Turning to prostitution (unworthy use of abilities) to relieve poverty has always been the road taken by very few and those few have more often than not been seen as having the morals of a toerag.   While Croatia’s economic crisis demands alleviating actions it’s contemptible that at this time of burning political tension […]

Croatia: To Schengen Or Not To Schengen

  When at the end of the 16th century Shakespeare, in Hamlet, inserted his soliloquy “to be or not to be” little did he know that its popularity would endure centuries and be called upon in almost every aspect of human existence, leaving the character of his moody Prince irrelevant to the plight.

Croatia: With Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic “Berlin Wall” To Finally Tumble Down

Croatian Presidential Elections 2014: For Whom The Bell Tolls

    Ever since Stjepan Mesic embarked on his attack (initially covertly then overtly) against Croatia’s first president Franjo Tudjman from about mid-1993, intending to bring down the significance of Tudjman’s cries for democracy and to criminalise Croatian Homeland War the politics in Croatia have often seemed disjointed and often irrational in recent years.
