Summary/Abstract: When Radovan Karadžić, the leader of the Bosnian Serbs accused of organizing ethnic cleansing, was arrested, it was discovered that in his last years as a fugitive, he was “hiding in plain sight” as a spiritual healer, taking part in forums and lectures that gathered up to several hundred people, and writing as contributor for the Zdrav Život (Healthy life) magazine. Can we then also say that “Radovan Karadžić is Dragan Dabić”? The latter is not merely a mask of the former, but his “inner truth.” In other words, the relationship between the two is that of a genuine parallax.
