Despite everything, we still belong to the West!

By: Gašper Blažič

Under the current rulers, Slovenia will soon catch up with Putin’s Russia. Do we really want this?

At this time, many people are wondering whether the West (and with it the European Union) is still a real option for a normal (and Christian-oriented) patriot at a time when decadence with the LGBT agenda is spreading uncontrollably. It is a relevant question, because the many disappointments with Brussels – which, after the change of government, is keeping both eyes shut, as the neo-communist lords establish total control over society, while during the time of Janša’s government they were ringing the bell – have inclined many to the fact that began to turn to “Mother Russia”. They live in the illusion that the media coverage of the war in Ukraine is a simple lie of the West, and that Vladimir Putin is the real statesman and also the moral victor in this story.

Unfortunately, this is not the case – the fatal blindness of many Western intellectuals who once saw great hopes for the transformation of global society in the Soviet Union, until they themselves tasted the Soviet “paradise”, is being repeated. Fascination with Russian greatness prevents many people from looking the truth in the face: the Russian Federation is actually a totalitarian state with a media single-mindedness, and even Slovenia in the current situation does not lack much for the well-known verse “Slovenia heroic, you will be Soviet” to come true. Just as Russia is “liberating” Ukraine, the current political rulers are “depoliticising” the media. And they use perverted language for what they do.

All this is just another argument against Slovenia’s excessive connection with the Kremlin. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his address to the members of the National Assembly, warned clearly enough that Russia intends to trigger global hunger and new migrations. In doing so, of course, Putin is taking advantage of the moral and political weakness of the West. During the previous government, Slovenia was able to take the initiative in EU politics. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. Instead, we are experiencing an initiation of internal political violence. If, 30 years after Ivan Kramberger, former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe fell in Japan, a similar tragedy with unimagined consequences can happen in our country, and this is because of those whose hateful speech is tolerated and even rewarded by the regime media…
