Sažetak The issues concerning the relationship between Croatia and the EU, and Croatia’s joining this organisation, may be addressed from several angles; however, only the discussion offering an answer to the one relevant question – whether, when and under what conditions should this organisation be joined – may be considered valid. Croatia will not benefi t from joining the EU in the way expected by individuals naive or deluded; nevertheless, Croatia’s joining the EU will certainly be less harmful for it than staying out of the Union would be. Having established these facts, the following should be determined:
1) It is obvious that the EU represents a type of mini-globalisation, the main objective of which is to expand the European markets as much as possible for the greater and the economically mightier.
2) The enlargement of the EU will create no united Europe, because this enlargement (same as the expansion of NATO) contributes only to the new way of dividing Europe, since the possibility for Belarus and the Russian Federation to become EU Member States is remote.
3) Croatia’s joining the EU represents entering (and submitting to) the same society, which in the years 1990 and 1991 left Croatia at the mercy of the Serbian aggression from both the inside and the outside, and which stood and waited for Croatia to be conquered.
4) The EU is an organisation that has excluded the Christianity (and thereby also the Judaism) from its Constitution; in this manner, the Union has cut down the early roots of the Europeanism.
5) Croatia’s potential joining the EU is taking place at the time and in the conditions not yet settled in the Balkans and its outskirts (Croatia). Besides, Croatia has been appointed peacemaker and a sort of economic “engine” in the Region. This idea, however, is utterly unrealistic, since Croatia is not capable of changing anything in the Region, e.g. in Kosovo, and as concerns BIH, it must not get involved. In the economic sense, Croatia can act as no ”engine” even for itself, and much less for anyone else, because it lives fi rst and foremost from loans and from the selling-off of the national heritage, and only secondly from its own work, which has, to a major part, been squeezed out by the foreign capital.
6) In order to stimulate a kind of a new community in the Region, it needs levelling the aggressor and the victim; this, however, is an insult to the Croatian dignity.
7) One of the fundamental problems to become extremely intensifi ed by Croatia’s joining the EU is the selling-off of Croatian treasures – it started with the Adriatic, and is likely to end with the drinking water.
8) The process of Croatia’s entering the EU is taking place in specifi c circumstances: Croatia is being made accept everything coming from the Big World, and it does so, only to be allowed to join this organisation at any cost.
9) In the economic sense, Croatia is not ready for the EU membership; this will only intensify our old problems and create new ones.
10) Several geopolitical consequences of Croatia’s entering the EU are also of importance: by intensifying the return even of the militant Great-Serbs (which return is one of the prerequisites for joining the EU), the critical mass may be established for claiming the new/old Z-4 Plan, which would ensure a-statewithin- the-state for the Serbs. Moreover, by the selling-off of real estate, Croatia loses parts of its territory it had defended in blood during the history.
