I have always felt chained in this country with false democracy where everybody who made something great had to break the law. And it is allowed to break the law if you have enough money to bribe someone on high position. In Croatia, under the mask of freedom and democracy, we have really ugly system of nepotism, theft and corruption. You just can't make it here and stay with clean hands.
Funny thing about all governments we had: we have a lot of political parties but when you go on elections, you see that you don't have any choice. So we are not used to choose a party that will be good, just less bad. And we often choose the worst option because people here don't like changes. Some would be really happy if we just go back in 19th century and ignore all knowledge and possibilities that we could have if they just give some small opportunity to a common man.
In those circumstances, the real capitalism is impracticable.
One of my favorite writers on Steemit, @profitgenerator said in one of his posts that capitalism is not here to babysit anyone.
I completely agree with that, but that can't be done here where some guys on positions just can't wait to steal all that you made. The reason for that are criminal organizations that manipulate the government. Only few people are owners of the most businesses in Croatia. That's why an honest man can't succeed here, you have to have as twice capital as you really need, because you must count on what will they steal from you. I was a witness when a rich entrepreneur literally stole a land from their rightful owners, a common people, and built a mall there. Those people sued him, but the county stood by his side. I considered to purchase a piece of land nearby but I gave up! Why would I buy a piece of land if someone can take it away from me without any problems!?
In my city, those who call themselves anarchists are bunch of funny dressed youngsters that claim that they have rights to crush empty beer bottle wherever they want.
That's why the word "anarchism" sounded so funny to me before I discovered the whole crypto world. That gave me better perspective and my life changed. Nobody can't steal from me because I don't use banks. With few crypto wallets that I have opened, I feel a little bit more secure and independent.
I mentioned in this text that @profitgenerator is one of my favorite writers on Steemit and he will always have my upvote, but I don't comment on his posts simply because I have nothing to comment. The world of independence and freedom that he speaks about is far, far away from me. So, if you want, follow the guy and give him your support.
Next thing that I want to discuss in this post is "cannabis problem"!
I live in a country where you can get the same prison sentence for possessing 5 grams of marijuana as a pedophile. Really pointless, don't you think? And we call ourselves a tourist country. I am really against of legalizing heavy drugs, but only things that came out of some lab are what I consider drugs. So I don't consider marijuana as drug. I have medical issues and some raw hemp products really help me. I wouldn't be able to fight this problem without those products.
And I can't sleep well because once two cops woke me up in 6 AM only because they know that I have medical problem in which cannabis can be helpful. So they came in my apartment to check me. Not because I was suspicious or because somebody betrayed me. Only because I have a medical issue and that's it! In their eyes, I was a potential criminal only because my issue.
So with a smile on my face, every day I read posts written by an awesome Steemit writer called @doitvoluntarily.
Also one who speaks about freedom that I can't comment on his posts because the world of CBD freedom that he speaks about doesn't exist here and it never will. Also one great Steemer, I suggest you to follow him to see great post about cannabis in medicine, about health, new technology and about boxing!
