What's new in Croatia?

Everyday we are listening to news: on the radio, television, newspapers or internet… So, everyday we find something new, but in context of age in which we are living, the way we live, is there something new? I found an interesting article about our age. This age, in which we are living, is called Kali Yuga in Indian scriptures, or translated: Iron Age. Kali is also name for goddess of destruction. According to scriptures, Kali Yuga has begun about five thousands years ago, and since than we remember many wars, diseases and other kind of suffering. There is no much memory or evidence about what has been before, especially not about human character and consciousness. But there are some old Indian scriptures, called Vedas and Puranas, for which is proven that are more than 5.500 years old!
Here we arrived to the main point: Some verses are describing our age, the situation, habits and our way of life. I’m very curious if someone can recognize world we are living in. Verses follows:

What scriptures says about our age

Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 12.2 tells that during the 432,000-year age of Kali, humanity deteriorates and falls into barbarism. Humans begin to kill animals for food. They fall under the spell of intoxication. They lose all sexual restraint. Families break up. Women and children are abused and abandoned.
The Vedic saints and sages of ancient India describe the people of this age as greedy, ill behaved, and merciless. By Srimad-Bhagavatam in this age merely possessing wealth is considered a sign of good birth, proper behavior, and fine qualities. Law and justice are determined by one's prestige and power. Marriage ceases to exist as a holy union - men and women simply live together on the basis of bodily attraction and verbal agreement, and only for sexual pleasure.
Women wander from one man to another. Men no longer look after their parents in their old age, and fail to provide for their own children. Filling the belly is said to be the only purpose in life. Cows are killed once their milk production drops. Atheism flourishes.
The new leaders emerge from the laborer class and begin to persecute religious people, saints, teachers, intellectuals, and philosophers. Children are killed in the wombs of their mothers. Women who have relations with several men are numerous. The Linga Purana says that in Kali Yuga, young women freely abandon their virginity. Women, children, and cows - always protected in an enlightened society - are abused and killed during the Iron Age. Thieves are numerous and rapes are frequent. There are many beggars, and widespread unemployment. Merchants operate corrupt businesses. Diseases, rates, and foul substances plague the populace. Water is lacking, fruits are scarce. People in this age eat their food without washing beforehand. Water is scarce. Many people watch the skies, praying for rain. No rain comes. The fields become barren. Men are without virtues, purity or decency. (Visnu Purana 6.1).
The men of Kali Yuga seek only money. Only the richest have power. People without money are their slaves. Farmers abandon living close to nature. They become unskilled laborers in congested cities.
Maybe 6.000 years ago this could seam like a hell, but today it’s our reality.

Miomir Žužul

Probably You are informed about Situation around Croatian foreign minister Miomir Žužul. He was accused to be in interest conflict between his function and private business. In other words he used his function for personal profit. (You can see nice article about topic on draxi’s site). After that, in order to protect him self, he told few lies. But, premier Sanader stood behind him, he has won some “friends” within IDS (Istrian Democratic Party) and now seems that Žužul’s position will be saved. So Justice depend on ones position and power, not on justice itself. Only the fact that Miomir Zuzul has told a lie in order to protect him self is enough to be dismissed of his duty. But in Kali Yuga things doesn’t work like this. The interests and power are more weighted than justice, but It is pity that common people are accepting this as normal: this has brought suffering, terrorism, drugs violence and other dark stuff. One should protect the truth, and not his own interest. Politic has become mere merchantery, there is no more real lidership and sacrifice. They are selling us product, they are fighting for our votes, as Coca-Cola and Pepsi: with commercials, slogans… We are voting not for the best’s but for those who are more skilled in media manipulation, who has more money to setup better campaign… Thin a little, is a president really the best person in the country? Are his qualities noble and exemplary? If answer is not, than why is he president? Even the football team has best and most responsible/exemplary individual as a captain.

First of all, congratulations on making such a good blog. Its pretty nicely done and informative. I`ve always been interested in knowing the thoughts of people from areas I dont know that much about and have met little. From ur blog, its apparent ure passionate about the area. I`m not sure if u`d like to do this but I have been looking for someone to write a little about the local soccer sides of the area. I have a blog about regional and amateur sides from Europe (currently) and would really like to give some space and link to someone like urself who can comment a little about the various local soccer sides from ur area. It doesnt have to be after every match. Just pieces of news and comments u`d like to leave on ur blog which i can then link to and drive some additional traffic to ur site.
