Truth which is not known in Croatia

Slovenian truck driver told somewhere on TV that he works 16 to 18 hours a day for basic pay, with no paid overtime, no paid hot meal. If he tries to protest, his boss would discharge him and send him to employment office, and take Romanian who would drive at half the pay, but boss also says that it is great in EU since he buys a new truck every month.

Bulgarian (business partner) says that Bulgaria lived from exporting fruits and vegetables, and now they import everything from EU, while state is becoming ever more indebted.

Hungarians tell how they became paid employees in (until recently their own) vineyards, beacouse French destroyed them with low prices and then bought all vineyards for low price, once Hungarians couldn’t return debts any more. Now, most famous Hungarian vineyards (Tokajac) are English-owned.

In Checzh Republic EU forced owners of sugar refineries to close their factoreis, while workers ended up unemployed, because EU has too much of sugar – and it has too much of sugar because it imports it from Cuba, due to larger profit made on it.

Due to overstepping Kyoto quotes, Germany moved large part of dirty industry into Checzh Republic. Only man able to add up two and two together was Checzh president Klaus, who says that entering EU was complete mistake and does not allow EU flag to be displayed on his residency.

Last year in February, it was mentioned on news that, in Hungary, citizens started protests and moved towards building of parlamient – police made barricades, and – nothing. After that short report, there was no mention of Hungary in Croatian news – obviously, Parliamentary Commision for Information had already reacted. But, as writer of this article was told by Hungarians he met – there are ALWAYS some demonstrations in EU. And where is there democracy, where is the freedom of press?

If such news were ever to be shows, there would be 90% of citizens against EU, not 50% – but in the end, there will be no voting on entering EU, beacouse Parliament will change law (as it already did, reducing the quote required to enter EU from absolute majority of all voters to relative majority of voters who actually voted – note by translator), so that Parliament will decide on best outcome instead of people, and that is entrance into EU, because they know that chances of people voting for EU are quite low.

Same thing happened in Netherlands and Slovenia, when they realized that people are against entering EU – when people protested due to lack of referendum, answer was: “You voted for our party, which had entrance into EU in program, and we are only fullfilling our promises.” (Situation in Croatia is that we have two major parties, both of which are trying their hardest to kiss up EU’s proverbial ass, up to and including entrance into EU, and many minor parties which, all put together, have allegiance of less than 30% of voting body. To make matters worse, many of them are in coalition with one of main parties – note by translator). Also, why Constitution of EU didn’t pass in France and Netherlands, why they ran to Lisabonian accord, why is it accepted by parlamients and not given on referendum? Beacouse it would pass as it did in Ireland, and we know how it passed there (it did not).

Are our politicians aware of what they are doing to this people? Are they aware that, after entering EU, any and all remaining goods will quickly pass into ownership of world mafia, and that our people will be slaves? They are not aware that, when owner pays tax on income, rest of profit goes to the world mafia, and that we will be cheap workforce, better said – slaves. They are not aware that, when owner pays tax on profit, rest of profit goes outside of Croatia. Only if owner is Croat, that money is re-invested back in the Croatia. I know what I’m talking about, beacouse I worked in foreign company until recently and I know how much money owner of that company took away from Croatia.

Why all of our political parties, save for some minor ones, have entrance to the EU as main goal? Only logical answer is that they have been bought, beacouse, to the EU, rich as it is and with good sense for finding gold mines, it isn’t problem to give few hundred millions of euros to our politicians, so as to make these do anything that EU asks them. To EU to give this money is same as for me to give few kunas to a beggar.

No-one cares – or sees – that main members of EU (England / UK, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Germany) were all colonial powes, that they conquered about-to-be colonies with wars, in which they killed millions and burglarized everything that could be burglarized. Everything they got with weapons, they lost same way. Now they have museums full of gold, ivory and jewelry works-of-art; but they also have traitors (those that fought for them against their own people) which are now causing them trouble (in France: Marocans, Tunese, Algerians, Maurs, etc.). (Result of that situation is that colonial powers listed above are trying to get rid of these people by dumping them into states of Central and East Europe that never had anything to do with colonialism, except being victims of same policies as homelands of these people – note by translator). London has over 50% of “colored” people, not to mention Netherlands) and are source of crime. Now they have large experience, and as such they, taught by the US, arrived to a conclusion: what is stolen by weapons, can be returned same way; but what has been bought, can only be returned same way; so, they have set out to conquer the world new way: via globalisation (That is main reason of EU cracking down on nationalism and Cazholic Church, as these are two main defenses against corporate globalism as both are putting accent on people helping each other against common foe, and preserving their freedom).

Read the little blue book of EU, called Constituation of EU, in which everything is written… And now these countries launched story about globalisation. What is hidden behind it? Globalisation is colonisation without a single bullet being fired. And we believe these four-flushers, who teach us what democracy is, what is good and what is bad, and until yesterday they were sewing death all over the world. They wiped out entire civilizations. Biggest democrates on this planet, USA, had slaves until recently, and until yesterday white people did not ride in busses alongside black people, while Republic of Dubrovnik abolished slavery in 1642., in time when USA were still British colony (USA were formed as a state in 1776) (One of less known facts about it was that Republic of Dubrovnik was first state in the world to reckognize USA independence). Now their tactics is to bring victim to its knees first (usually via financial means – that is, indebtment), and then come with coffers full of money, lawyers and contracts, so everything of value changes owner in very short time, of course for large sum of money, beacouse even king in danger of death from thirst gives a kingdom for a drop of water.

I am for the EU, but not EU with such politics, politics led by capitalists and not politicians. What kind of politics it is when capitalists, due to their greed and never-dying obsession for enrichment moved their capital to China, where worker works for 1 $ per day, and workers who made that capital are being sent to employment exchange, only for products made in China to be brought to EU and sold to their ex-workers, who are now living on social help. That way they destroyed industry of textile, shoe-making industry, started destroying wood industry, car industry etc. (Now they are trying to destroy our shipyards so as to remove main European concurention to Western-owned Korean shipbuilding industry – Croatian shipbuilding industry ranked 3rd in the world once – note of translator).

I am saying that this EU politics isn’t good, beacose it is based on capital only, and no-one cares about human beings any more. Now it isn’t enough to work on woriking days only, but on Saturday and Sunday, but only here in Croatia, while these same centers don’t work on Sunday in their mother countries (Austria, Germany).

But this politics is politics of cutting a branch of the tree they are sitting on, beacouse when 50 % of workers in the EU ends up on employment exchange, and other half ends up incapable of paying social service for first half, we’ll and up with revolution again. (…)

In Croatia, main interest of rich people in EU is. Slavonia, sources of drinking water as well as our coast along with islands. Industry is of no concern for them – they have their own industry in Korea, Vietnam, Turkey and India. Our industry, which is concurention to theirs, is only trouble for them. It has to be destroyed. As a result, they are forcing our government to destroy it – currently, shipyards are main target of attack. Our shipyards are direct concurention to Korean ones, which are in their ownership. That, they bear out with free market and protecting free market competition. Their theory is that anything that is not profitable, should be destroyed. But that rule only applied to some, althought they say that we are all equals (all pigs are equal, only some of them are more equal than others, as Orwell says), so I ask myself why they didn’t let all banks in the US and EU to collapse, beacouse, according to that theory they should have collapsed; why they give financial support to car industry, why just US alsone, in order to save its economy, sacrificed over 1 500 billion USD? Why we shouldn’t save our own economy with 2 to 3 million of USD, instead of allowing workers to end up on exchange office, where they will cost the budhet ten times more?

So we blindly trust these liars.

Maybe you’ll say that I am too harsh in my analysis. No, I’m not too harsh, I’m desperate, I can send this letter into the newspapers, but they won’t publish it.

Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda chief, was child’s play for current propaganda managers. Ones working today are students of US agressive marketing born in consumer society. What marketing is? One definition says that consumer society created marketing, which is able to convince person to buy something that person doesn’t need, for money it doesn’t have. Meaning that person should be convinced to become as indebted as possible, beacouse it is easier to control him/her in such condition. And if person isn’t indebted to anyone, then he/she can allow him/herself many things; but if he/she is indebted, then it is easy to threaten him/her with discharge, so person remains silent; beacouse if he/she loses job, he/she will lose everything, and no-one wants to lose existence and goods he/she made by heavy work, especially if he/she has familiy to take care of, which is a shrine to any worker.

How large of liars they are, you will remember yourselves, when I remind you of promises foreign banks made. While they did not have access to Croatia, they were convicning us that interest rate will be same in Croatia as it was in their home countries – now, interest rate in Croatia is 13%, and in their home countries it is 3%. When they came in, they promised to companies that move to them from contemporary SDK, that they will do money transfers free of charge. But our firms did not fall for it, so dr. Sosic and dr. Dodan publicly spitted at SDK, calling it “communistic mastodont”, which should be abolished, beacouse nothing like that exists in rest of the world, and that business subjects should be transferred to commercial banks. Finally they brought the law that forced companies to move accounts and money into commercial banks, but at that moment no bank even thought of fullfilling the promise of free-of-charge money transfers; actually, costs of money transfers increased five times. In these same banks you can get credit for a car, truck or anything else made in West within few hours or few days; but to get credit for, say, cow farm, you have to fight several years.

Biggest mistake our government made, accoring to me, is when it signed that it will open our market to EU products and that it will sell our banks. With that move we, to use chess terminology, surrendered our Queen and Cannons to the opponent without fight. To continue with that terminology, our government is playing chess with EU while knowing only how figures move, while our opponent knows ten moves ahead, and knows how to achieve a checkmate, that is, to achieve everything they want to.

For entrance into EU, they first made us cooperate with court in Den Haag. Then we had to deliver general Gotovina, then we had to give up protected fishing area (all the while Italian fishing fleet makes more profit from our own territorial sea in a month than our own fleet in half a year – note by translator), now we’ll have to give to Slovenia 90% of what they ask and that way, little by little, we’ll find ourselves on our knees without anything. And if we stand up to bullying, they will simply ask the return of entire debt, which is now around 50 billion USD.

And what then awaits us? Only possible solution, and that is putting taxes on anything and everything, from tax on cattle for farmers, tax on excess of living area, tax on cottages, cars, tax on tax, and what will that lead to? It will lead to drastic drop in prices of real estates and to full-blown collapse of health care, educational and market systems. And now it is clear why EU insists on quick assortment of land registries.

Our ex-minister once said that Croatia is one big family, which I agree on, but question is if police and social service aver came to his small family to impose order, or he imposed it himself, so I wonder why he needs order to be made in big family of EU?

Furthermore, many free programs of EU are made up in order to prepare terrain for Day D. Such as a programme in which EU emissaries teach our lumens on how to wield public property, and for that we have to give them list of public properties with valuation. Does it tell you anything?

On Croatia and EU

Posted by picard578 on October 8, 2012

By decision of one third of its voters (many of whom probably were not alive at time of referendum), Croatia has now finally passed the final obstacle on its way to the EU. Or better said formal way, since, in practice, we had accepted all of EU rules and norms; according to our politicians, membership in the EU should give us prosperity and safety. They act like there is emptiness outside of EU, that has nothing to offer to us. And not to forget that preparations for referendum included changing a Constitution so that, instead of absolute majority, only a relative majority (50% plus one vote of people who actually voted) was needed for Croatia to enter EU.
Politicians here are still using memories of World War 2 and Croatian War for Independence to stir up trouble, to manipulate people into fighting each other, leaving them unable to see real dangers on time – or indeed, to see them at all. Moreover, old Communist tricks are still used. When there was referendum about entrance into EU, voting papers were numbered – due to that fact alone, several of my cousins – more than half of those I spoke to – decided not to go to referendum. Needless to say, they were all anti-EU.
Meanwhile, our politicians cry about recession, that we have to have cuts, and at the same time, ex-President of Croatia, Stjepan Mesic, has his own secretary, his own office – Office of Former President – and few villas. All of that on taxpayers’ expense. Ivo Josipovic calls Partisan hats to be “hats of love and peace” despite the fact that Communist idea of election campaigns involved preemptively killing off all non-Communist candidates, all political opponents in fact, and voting with gum balls, so it could be heard when someone was against Party. Right now, these same communists are trying to stop commemorations of Bleiburg and Vukovar.
But all that is okay, I guess, because it is perfectly in line with Germany’s goal of creating Fourth Reich. Their (Croatian politicians’) “flawless” logic, which basically goes patriot = nationalist, nationalist = Ustasha, Ustasha = Nazi, therefore patriot = Nazi is used to weaken any opposition to old Communist group. In similar vein, Office for victims of communist crimes is under heavy attack.
Slavko Kvaternik said: “It is not shameful to be a Croat, but it is unfortunate.”. And he was correct. Croatia can be expected to become similar to Greece – we have a single bank that is not in foreign ownership, and all that remains of our industry is shipbuilding industry – once third in the world – and arms industry. And former is being rapidly destroyed, in order not to pose a threat to Western-owned Korean shipbuilding. And while Russia is prepared to invest into our shipyards, to save them, I don’t think our politicians will even think of accepting it.
Croatian populace in Hertzegovina is not only ignored, it is being attacked by current Croatian political scene. Scene which, despite all the farce, is being set by West. I have to ask myself if both Monti and Papademos being delegated, not elected, is simply a way in which world oligarchy wants to cut last ties of people to the government, which isn’t for the people for quite some time – and it is even less from the people.
Meanwhile, United States are doing everything they can to buy EU – they already are controlling good deal of world economy and policies through IMF, which itself never brought any stability – IMF is actually instrument of US world domination. Meanwhile, financial derivatives are now at value of above 1,5 quadrillion USD – or 25 times more than current world GNP, and over a dozen largest EU banks are being held alive by taxpayers’ money, because they are “too big to fail”.
Croatian Government wants to sell Croatia Insurance as well as Postal Bank – one of last monetary institutions still not in foreign ownership. They are also apparently preparing to sell HEP, a Croatian power distributer.

Croatia is also not a multi-party – or even two-party – country. SDP and HDZ are both Communists, with exception that SDP are Stalinists and HDZ are Titoists. National minorities and Croats from BiH are priviledged when it comes to entrance into Parliament. All major media – such as Croatian Radio Television, major newstapers like Free Dalmatia, Morning Newspaper, Evening Newspaper, or 24 Hours – are owned by Communists.
Meanwhile, small parties are unable to do anything save for going into coalition with one of two major parties – logical, since HDZ and SDP have almost exclusive overage in all major media, which is also owned by Communists (sometimes, owners are open members of HDZ/SDP), meaning that most people don’t even realize there is any option except to vote for said parties. Ivo Josipovic, meanwhile, has stated long time ago that he will make Croatia red (that is, return it to ways of Communism). By looks of it, he is making good on his promise – rehabiliting Chetniks from Srb, attacking Croatia and its independence where- and when- -ever he can. He also supported ACTA – regardless of Internet censure that is sure to follow, ACTA also prevents poor nations to manufacture generic cures, which are often only thing stopping health disaster from occuring in same countries. Moreover, ACTA has article that makes it so a person will have his/her Internet access shut down after three breaches of law (law being ACTA). However, it is entirely possible for a hacker to use someone else’s Internet connection – or at least Internet signature (known as IP) – to download materials. Therefore, it is entirely possible – probable, actually – that ACTA will result in innocent people getting their Internet access shut down; and there simply is no way around it. Danger is especially great with wireless connections, although it is also present with wired connections. Moreover, what if someone is downloading material from computer in firm, or a library? Who is responsible then? In the end, ACTA is heavily undemocratic in its very core. I also fear that it may be manipulated so as to prevent freedom of speech, which, truth be told, would be nothing new. But it would probably be first time to happen on so large scale.
It is hard to hope for any change in political situation in Croatia as long as old Communists are still holding everything that matters in shaping public opinion. Many streets are still named after Josip Broz Tito – I don’t want to even think about what response would it be if someone tried to rename one after Ante Pavelic. And on West, it is forgotten that Tito did not leave Stalin – Stalin threw Tito out, and while Tito did try to kiss up to Stalin for next few months or a year, he soon realized that he won’t be accepted back into Warshaw Pact, and so decided to ask West for a help (it also had an effect of easing burden on Soviet Union, because Western states now had falling-apart country to contend with. If Stalin did not “dispose” of Yugoslavia, USSR would have broken down in 1980 or earlier instead of 1990). Meanwhile, Croatian linguistic purists, who want to purify Croatian languages of foreign words and grammar that creeped in during centuries we spent under foreign rule, are being held in contempt by ruling class, since anything that can help Croatian people and Croatian national identity survive is, to them, a nightmare.
What is more, there are many notions pushed by Big Four of EU, which lead towards revival of Yugoslavia. That is helped by the fact that, since 1999 and death of Tudjman, Croatian politics is increasingly regional, and decreasingly national. Croatia is held as leader of South-East Europe (colloquially called Balkans), and that despite the fact that Croatia, historically and culturologically, was always part of South and Central Europe (Slavonia gravitated more towards Central, Dalmatia towards Southern Europe).
As for European Union, its policy of trying to emulate United States, and replace various national identities with single “European” identity, it is wrong thing to do. Europe is consisiting of different nations, with different histories, cultures and traditions, as well as different economies. Trying to “melt” them into new supra-national state will only increase tensions and will serve to balkanize Europe, turning it into gigantic gunpowder barrel (various superpowers squabbling over Balkans and trying to either expand their territory there (and that since Middle Ages), or create political alliances to their liking (Yugoslavia) was what turned Balkans into gunpowder barrel in first place) that may well trigger World War Three with its inevitable collapse (I hope it won’t, but I have followed politics closely enough to learn never to hope, but simply to do what I can). Indeed, most if not all of EUs troubles can be traced back to its ignorance of political reality and pressures for greater integration, even though exact opposite is needed.
