Saying It’s Over, Doesn’t Make It So

A few days ago, the UNHCR recommended without much consultation of those being affected, to remove the refugee status of those persons that fled what is now present day Croatia. One of the arguments that the UNHCR used to justify their decision was the inclusion of Croatia in the EU. If joining a club makes you a different country, why wasn’t joining the UN good enough?
The ‘steps’ that one has to go through to ‘be good enough’ to join the EU, have nothing to do with improving the real situation within the borders of said country, they are more an act of obedience. How willing are the new kids to follow orders and conform to the will of the Big Boys. The reality of the EU is not peaceful co-existence, it is economic, political and social control. Make no mistake, any country that has to answer to the demands, even if they are labeled as policies and laws, of another country or governing body down to the daily running of their affairs is neither free nor independent. The con of economic development and aid is not to improve the receiving country, it is instead to insure the conformity of the state to the oppressors. One need only look at Greece, whom ONLY if their economy was healed overnight, will be in-debt to the EU and IMF for the next 150 years. If you consider that 30 years is a generation, the current population of Greece has sold the next 5 generations of its citizens into servitude of EU, without any hope of enjoying the sense of self-worth that sovereignty allows. The situation in Greece is a prime example of how being a member of the EU does not denote that a country is of such quality as to make it a prosperous entity as opposed to being somewhere in the act of rebuilding from destruction or war, as the case in Croatia.
The prime example that Croatia is at most in healing stage and not healed is the anti-Serb actions of persons in Croatia that has continued since the end of the war. Last fall the signs that were in both Latin and Cyrillic script, Cyrillic being the script used most by Serbs were ripped down and or destroyed and now persons using social media are calling for boycotts of businesses and products that are owned and produced by Serbs. This is not the behavior of a compliant people, but Germany and France are not worried they will place more economic burden on the state to bring it into line, of course it will be called loans and economic boost as well as outside investment contingent on demanded behavior. This behavior is not as reprehensible to members of the EU as it is to the persons that have to live with the day to day violence. It is to the advantage of big government to have the little people fighting each other, instead of uniting and keeping government in check.
