Ok, USSR invaded your previous country. Not exactly Russia, but Russia and few more. Then how do you call what you have now? I'd say since you joined NATO and EU what you have is called willingful surrender. You willingly gave all of your top resources to more powerful countries and companies that lie West of Czech Republic, and decided that your destiny will not be written in Prague but in Brussels. In a way you just switched your masters, you spit on the men that actually fought for freedom of thought and freedom of association (back then against USSR).
Did Russian invasion on Ukraine erased all of the problems entire world was/is facing, be it because of laboratory made virus, mandatory jabbing, forced immigration to first world countries, or media deception and astroturfing on multiple subjects?
Can this MSM propaganda work so good on normies and can it be that they're so easily susceptible to fear mongering? Perhaps they really have no long term memory?
ALSO: is it only important for such nations to have local puppet masters instead of being directed from abroad? I mean is there any difference there?

The last part was related that I don't trust anything I hear from Ukrainian side more-so than Russian (not about dehumanization), because Ukraine is victim here and will do anything to get support from international community. I'm not saying Russia is an angel.
When did Russia invade Czech Republic?
Really sick of dehumanizing propaganda in this war to the point I don't trust anything I hear. Especially from the Ukrainian side.

If I'm not mistaken Germany has biggest deposits of lithium in Europe, so it is not surprising that one of its neighbors have it as well.

Serbian government is stacked with absolute idiots, but also what's worse is this region is close to Bosnian and Croatian border so they'll pollute their drinkable water as well, which may cause further deterioration in the relationship between the three countries.

"Following the [Norwegian bow-and-arrow] attacks, the police directorate said it had ordered officers nationwide to carry firearms." by neomarxist_bullshit in For_Slavs
What a sick and twisted logic. Of course its not good deed. Now common citizen in that country would need to be armed up due to psychopaths in police force as well, not only random psychopaths (which will continue to exist whether or not police carries weapon).
The only good news is that its fucking Denmark, so something for away from me (and it does not affect my life).

Like I said, it all depends on German geopolitics.
USSR was funding terrorists too. Maybe you don't remember Carlos the Jackal and his group.
Well, speaking in general, Eastern Christianity is more based on apophatic theology (spirituality and mysticism), and with Catholicism and Protestantism focus is more on cataphatic (where they believe there is a higher meaning to their lives and it gives extra degree of order to their societies). Personally, I prefer the first one.
They could be Jews, but they would need to dislike many more things than Israeli government or Talmud. How can you trust people that were expelled from their homeland for 2000 years and that mutilate their own boys?
It wasn't only Serbia, other Yugoslav countries are in it too. Maybe not only Yugoslav.
EU = USSR. I see so much things in common.
What about different sects of Christianity? They're all fine by me.
Judaism? I prefer even some radical forms of Islam.
The properties thing was maybe bigger thing in Yugoslavia, since Kingdom of Yugoslavia allowed private properties. It was not only taken away from the monopolists, but common people as well. Everyone owning a business was in jeopardy. I believe a reasonable amount of social Darwinism is good, because I believe people should have the opportunity to evolve themselves through their entire life (and not just in one or two areas, or in a single stage of life - in Serbia particularly most people still think that you can develop only when you're young). That leads to fixed mindset (instead of more favorable growth mindset). Competition is a good thing. The dream of achieving something big is what motivates most of the people, and I believe many would do better if they are more individualistic than collectivist - if they had opportunity to fail and learn from their mistakes. But the communists didn't think like that. You could only advance yourself until the moment you finish your education, or worse - if you join political life or army. Even then you're would work heavily for the community as a whole, not just yourself, or your family only, or your group of friends or people you collaborative with. This commonly happens when you let thugs and thieves to be part of government.
Low crime rates were just because they provided jobs (and thus money) for those unproductive part of society (that would otherwise become criminals) on the expense of those more capable. That's probably only good thing about communism I could think of.
Concerning LGBTQIA+, they are relevant if you allow them to be. If the individual opens to the idea of that, listens to the debate, forgets about it ethic code, they are relevant. If there is a group of such individuals you might get a movement. If the group becomes majority you will get different ethic code. That being said pro-LGBTQIA+ people are irrelevant as they are just loud but very tiny minority.
Because in the Western Balkans governments spent the money they didn't had in order to win future elections (borrowed from EU/US/IMF/other economically relevant nations or organizations). They didn't start firing government employees and decrease expenses. On the contrary, they hired MORE people! For this they needed to take loan. But this won't last forever. When they put their countries in huge debt they will have to deal with it or face huge riots, and staying out of EU will ensure that to happen. If these countries enter EU the people will just go to Western Europe. That would be bad for everyone.
Well, I can't find the article now, but until few years ago Serbia could sell some products to Eurasian Economic Union countries only on very unfavorable prices (due to higher tariffs), but this is now settled. We scored some similar deals with China too. What is problem for Serbia is we're surrounded by EU and due to their stiff regulations we basically can't sell our products there.
About Kosovo, perhaps you meant "Is it a country?". For now it seems like a construct without any pillars of statehood. Just some terrorist "big leaders" molesting others less fortunate to become "big leaders".

I don't think religion is only way for an individual to be moral person, but it is for society (group/nation) to be.
First and foremost, USSR was the worst for citizens of USSR. People getting executed without reason, appropriation of private properties, stimulation for snitching and spying on your family members or neighbors by the government, general curfews and lockdowns for no real reason (and more) is not the way a country can stimulate moral behavior. That's why this country fell apart (perhaps it had a some financial backup from their enemies but I think in the end people decided they don't want to live under such circumstances).
Now concerning of increase of living standards in communistic countries, I gave this a lot of thought. I think if they achieved something to help out common citizen, this thing they did has to be minimal because of their (politicians) will to do so. Most of innovations were global trends of the time, and communistic countries didn't want to fall behind. After all, they came out as winners in WW2 and wanted to prove and compete with the West. At the same time post-WW2/Cold War era was period when everyone understood they can't stay in isolation to successfully defend against their enemy. That's where economical/technical/political and other collaboration started at the higher level than during period of empires, prior to WW2 (during which those cooperation's were military alliances only). The communist politicians and officials just used that to show you they were better than the Russian Empire. But they were not, in fact I'd say they were much worse taken all things together.
LGBT??! NO NO, now it's LGBTQIA+! ... Just joking. I don't give a damn about them. If I did, that would mean they are relevant, but they are just fabricated organizations to distract us from really important problems.
Concerning Polexit article: Yes, when you impose stupid regulations expect unrest.
Concerning EU-Western Balkans video: I think in my previous comments I already said almost identical things, so its nothing strange someone else thinks the same (especially someone like Boris Malagurski, who is Eurosceptic for very long time). But another thing, which is why they're tied to EU, is because domestic private sectors in all of those few Western Balkans countries are destroyed by bans that EU imposes to them, as well as basically all other economies. Russia and China also had restrictions for products coming to the Balkans (or at least Serbia in this case) until few years back.
Glad we agree on some things, but I don't think Poland is economically weak today. In the 90's or 2000's, but right now they're good enough. And regarding religion I was not talking about Christianity in specific. It could be even Islam or Buddhism, but most countries in Europe have secular laws which paves the path for immoral behavior.
I think Soviet Union was hell. I don't miss Yugoslavia because I don't like to live in past, I'm just aware it would be better for South Slavs if it continued to exist in different form (non-socialistic).

I mean the region of former Yugoslavia, I don't care for Germany. I think its the job of German citizens to care for it.
Of course, its good not to be involved in NATO, because in essence it is a criminal organization. Just take a look at their deeds and "accomplishments". I'm also anti-EU as well because it serves just big economies and it lets smaller countries to survive from donations of those bigger. The countries involved in EU lose the sovereignty and ability to make decisions.
Are you trying to say because they were forced to participate they should bear no consequences? I see no logic behind that, they could still say "no". Sure, that would mean they'd get their funds decreased, maybe they would get accusations or perhaps even threats to get kicked out of alliance, but in the end they would do the right thing morally. However, I doubt they know what it means and thus don't feel moral responsibility because most of these nations are no longer religious, and worse - they think they're doing the right thing. So in the end they should not cry about Afghan refugees and hope for someone uninvolved to solve their problems.
I think well of all of our neighbors (not just Bosnians or Albanians) and I wish them good fortune.
Yes, I am Serbian. I think it was German scheme to destroy their only opposition in Europe (Yugoslavia) and with that they destroyed any decency left among South Slavs. Yugoslavia was far from perfect but that was only way for common South Slav to have even minimally decent life. They achieved major success. Now this region is enslaved, hats off to them for aligning themselves with other relevant superpowers like US and UK. They managed to trick greedy Slovenes and unsatisfied Croats, and used Bosniaks as scapegoats, pulled off major propaganda against Serbs and in general they played their cards well, because they did all they planned. Serbia was last to capitulate in the early 2000's, but still outside of NATO and had no deal in Afghanistan at all.
Also, I disagree that first 3 countries from the list should take all. I believe all of the countries should take them, in proportion to their activity there. I believe in justice and karma. If you're coward that does not know how to say "no" then sooner or later it will get you. I am against allowing anyone to get out of uneasy situation so sleazy like the Austrians try to do now.
I doubt they will be moved somewhere, they themselves might try to go to some of those richer countries but I doubt they will allow them to come. Serbia didn't participated in Afghanistan, Syria, or Libya, and also didn't had any troops stationed there. Serbia is not a NATO member. Let the NATO countries take them in, the refugees are mostly former NATO collaborates so what is the problem there? Why should they even think of coming to or through Serbia at the first place?
This is the list of countries that should feel the responsibility (which of course they don't) and Austria is there as well:
That means they're staying in Serbia. Serbs are so naive. I see no point in helping Austria or any EU member at all.
