The last day of 2012, one that was not supposed to happen at all. Yet we survived, and the worst that happened was seeing just how gullible people can be. Then again, we have elections that already shows this...
This year was a mixed bag when it comes to what I had hoped and predicted to happen. Sadly, only the pessimistic forecasts turned out to be correct, perhaps because they were almost foregone conclusions to anyone except ruling politicians and the MSM "learned analysts".
First of all the "changes" that came about in Serbia proved to be a mere modification in cast and stagings of the same old play in spite of some of my hopes that it will be somewhat different. That'll teach me to trust my initial assesments. The fight is still there to fight and now at least we know where the line is, the Progressive party can no longer fool people since position of authority truly brings out the real person.
Around the worls, Egypt is steadily sliding towards an islamist dictatorship, even though the Muslim Brotherhood at one point bit off more than it could chew. Syria is still same old including usually well-meaning people still clinging on to out-dated liberal cliches in spite of the ugliness of truth coming out every day. I haven't pronounced myself much on the USA elections since I had absolutely no idea who was going to win. There were credible signs pointing in both directions. Results being what they are, it is of no surprise that progressive liberal agenda is increasingly being rammed down the people's throats. This time all pretenses of decency are dropped! Liberal propagandists are now dancing on children's graves, openly demonizing and dehumanizing their opponents, even calling for their deaths. Still, in all this there is possibility that they might overreach just like their counterparts in Egypt and provoke the ire of large segments of the population.
I haven't lived up to my own expectations of blogging more in 2012, largely due to personal and business reasons that kept me so occupied that many of the entries on a wide variety of subjects ranging from politics, Serbian and international, and the undelying ideologies behind them, history, Wagner, sports never got past draft thesis. Others were written in such a haste that upon closer reading they appeared completely unsatisfactory from both intellectual and formal point of view that I simply could not publish them. Hopefully I will manage to rework them in due time as well as complete the unfinished ones.
All the best in 2013 to all my readers.
