2020 Croatian Statehood Day: The Only Way Forward is Decommunise And Democratise!

“Communism is dead, but nobody has yet seen its corpse,” pronounced the first post-Soviet president of Estonia, Lennart Meri in the early 1990s (Meri 1994). For Croatia, it has taken inordinately and widely insufferably longer compared to its Central and East European counterparts to bury the body of communism. A reason behind this is undoubtedly […]

Croatia: It’s Time To Get Rid Of Communist Nebulosities

“Now is the time to get rid of these nebulosities from the past. We have been listening to the Partisan ‘truth’ for far too long. Opponents of revision, as well as the promoters of historical forgery, want to hide crimes and the criminals; and the truth. But in vain. No one can stop the truth!” […]

When Croatia’s Antifa Hicks Try Stopping Church Repairs After Earthquake

During my latest visit to Croatia, March 2020, the country has not only had to deal with the vicious threat of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) spread, desperately trying to avoid the devastation that the neighbouring Italy was living, but a series of terrible earthquakes and aftershocks in Zagreb also forced the country to its knees. People may […]

Fragmented Body Politic – Symptom Of Lost Control Over Croatia’s Socio-Political Destiny

Fragmentation of the so-called patriotic (domoljubne), usually dubbed as right-wing, body politic in Croatia has never been more vigorous than at the present time. All parties and political movements (and there are many) involved proclaim either in words or implications a vigorous critical loyalty to Croatia and, ultimately, to the values of the 1990’s Homeland […]

Zeljko Glasnovic MP and “The Lion in Winter”

When I watched the live video broadcast of Croatian Parliament sitting on last Thursday, 13 February 2020, while the Parliamentary representative for Croatians living abroad (for the diaspora), retired General Zeljko Glasnovic, it was his usually ardent presentation of the perilous woes that continue afflicting and stifling progress of democracy and, indeed, a society that […]

Croats of Australia Celebrate 50 Years of the Australian Croatian Club O’Connor in Canberra

When, in 1979, Mario Despoja, Chargé d’Affaires of the Croatian Embassy in Canberra, raised and founded by the Australian Croatian immigrant community defying Communist Yugoslavia and advocating for an independent Croatia, left the building for the last time, as required by the laws of Australia and Communist Yugoslavia, one thing is for certain: in his […]

Croatia: The End of Anti-Fascism

A European Parliament resolution has 19 September 2019 condemned Communism as equivalent to Nazism. To my view equating communism with Nazism is not enough; communism or its fantasy name of anti-fascism surpasses in the bulk of its crimes any other regime known to humanity. The moral superiority Anti-Fascists of Croatia (of Yugoslavia and all other […]

Rebuttal to Seb Starcevic’s Rant Claiming Croatian Celebration of Fascism in Australia

  Seb Starcevic’s article is an example that evidences the fact that we still do not live in a post-truth world and never have. On the contrary, we live in a pre-truth world where truth is yet to arrive. Seb Starcevic’s article “In Australia, some Croats openly celebrate fascism,” published  on Balkaninsight portal on 10th […]
