A Bit of Yugoslavia and History

July 14, 2008

The blog: A Blog Around the Clock has a fascinating account of Yugoslavia and the ethnic violence that broke out afterwards. You see, the guy who writes the blog , coturnix (he is a chronobiologist, though, and that is an alias, btw), used to live in it, and anyone who likes a good story or history (ya didn’t think science was my only interest, did you?) will like it. He also makes the connection with religion and group cohesiveness, and makes the case that the authoritarian parties of the cold war were also religion. Yes, he is not religious, no, you should not not read (you know what doble negative means, ja?) it because it is somewhat counter religion, because in the end, it will have taught you something, and made you think of things that you would have never thought of.
