Abstract:

In this work the authors consider the negative influence of process globalisation of neoliberal ideology on Serbia. They cosider the following themes: the relationships between law, moral and might in the contemporary world; are the humanitarian interventions an instrument for the development of human rights or for making of the world empire; what changes are taking in the structure of inter-state relations; what would be the best place for Serbia in the current historical juncture of the world. In the next section, we talk about the neoliberal performance in Serbia in a form the tyranny of the majority. Then we criticize the concept of the Second Serbia. By hypostasizing minority rights, which are justified by the claim that ethno-cultural groups need the state to protect their right to develop their own cultural tradition and, paradoxically, encouraging the dissolution of the Serbian cultural tradition in the name of modernizing Serbia, the Second Serbia actually rejects the logic behind both the civil state and the national state, because both of them are incompatible with those minority rights which encourage strong processes of ethnic homogenization whose ultimate outcome is the disintegration of the state.

Keywords:
