I am having a very chill morning. It’s raining, I am sitting in my pajama reading my book. I realized that I like trilogies and books that follow a character or a plot so I started reading His Dark Materials. Currently I am on the first book and I think the experience is a bit different because I watched the HBO show based upon the trilogy.
I had to google what to read because after Millenium, the only series of books I knew were Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Now that I have told you how peaceful my morning is, let me get to the angry part of this post.
Yesterday I had a bit of a less chill day because my mother sparked my interest into going and reading an interview from one of Croatian’s singers who, in detail, described how her ex was paying off our institutions and the then mayor of the capital city to take their son away from her but I will go on about this in depth in a Coffee Date. The other piece of news that was on the sidebar while I was reading the story is the type of news that makes me go “This country makes me want to murder people.”
I am against violence, but sometimes the system and the absurdity of Croatia pushes me towards the opinion that sometimes, just sometimes people need to be beaten into knowing that when the justice fails, the people won’t. Unfortunately, I then still decide to have some morals and not advocate for this idea.
Now, what happened?
A lowlife, a piece of shit, the bottom of the society, a man with no morals or chances at redemption has raped an 8 year old girl for a year and he got caught. The little girl was his partner’s daughter. That thing that cannot even be called a human being, got 14 years in prison and now a court lowered his sentence to 11 years because…. Are you ready for this?
He took part in the Croatia war for independence.
This country makes me want to murder people.
I am disgusted. This is the reason why I don’t read the news. I just cannot deal with this. I am sick of people getting away with their crimes because they were in the war. No, this is not the first time something like this has happened. Croatia came a long fucking way since that war, we even got into the EU, we developed as a nation and made a lot of progress and it really amazes me that we were able to do this if three judges did not see anything wrong with lowering a sentence to a pedophile based on his participation in the war.
To quote the Tiktok of the content creator Lyneezy: Earth is ghetto and I wanna leave.
Is it better anywhere else? Like, is there a country where you can confidently say that there are flaws but the government and the institutions are overall doing their job and protecting and serving their citizens? You just let me know because I am very skillful when it comes to learning new languages, it might take me 6 months, I will get a job in the country most recommended and I will move. I cannot. This country makes me want to murder people.
I am going back to my chill book reading.
