Philosophy of humanism, as understood through human conscience such as choice, responsibility, moral values, a belief that all persons are inherently free and equal, enter into the heeds of the Yugoslav authorities 1945-1990, only as a vague annoyance. Immanuel Kant's universal law of reason as a guide toward emancipation from tyranny was hijacked by Tito and his communist honchos. They used it as their common license to tyrannize Yugoslav people, to deny emancipation of life to all but the members of the communist party. They regarded Marx's view of "humanity" as abstraction, and since the human rights are abstract, protecting them is also abstract. The Yugoslav people were perpetually tormented by their government.
