The rule of law and the left-wing games without borders

If, until recently, we believed that the United States was considered a model of democracy, the major electoral fraud that is coming to light has finally shattered that illusion.

Yes, the cynical distance, as the most translated Slovene writer Drago Jančar prophetically called the future new totalitarianism a quarter of a century ago, has taken on new forms. Illusions about a democratic European Union had shattered even before. We can regret how naive we have been about the democratic orientation of the global (EPP) as well. Namely, the EPP’s top has joined the Eurosocialists’ pursuit of the “rebellious” states, and uses the “rule of law” as a pretext for a new major freemason project, which the Slovenian Constitution defines with the phrase “lawful state”. Very clever. And also disgustingly perverted.

The initiators of the abuse of the phrase “rule of law” are well aware that opponents of the renewed left-wing elites, who in many countries maintained a decisive influence on the judiciary (including in Slovenia!), have often invoked this value. But the law is something written by a man who is not necessarily a democrat. That is why we had the rule of law in Yugoslavia, of course the rule of revolutionary law.

Today, the “rule of law” is invoked by those who try to retain the influence of totalitarian remnants on the functioning of society in the transition countries of Central Europe. Hungary and Poland are being warned that if it they poke the “holy cow” of the judiciary too much, the already promised funds from the negotiations on the EU budget will remain in Brussels. That is also why I believe that a real storm has arisen with the publication of Prime Minister Janez Janša’s letter to the leaders of the European Union. Reactions to him from Slovene politics show that Janša, as he has done several times before, drove a stake into the wheels of their mechanism for fighting for power through Brussels. Namely, the KUL holders hoped that the changes already agreed in the distribution of European funds would help in the sabotage actions aimed at Janša’s government, but of course the Prime Minister resisted and let the European public know that the European Union has no future with such a Balkan approach to agreements. And this is very true.
