Return to the transitional-leftist “paradise”: if there is no mass revolt against the nonsense of the ruling elite in the fall, Slovenia will be over!

By: Tomaž S. Medved

Now it is finally known why the transition left has launched such a fierce campaign against Nova24tv and its show “Kdo vam laže”. It is clear that by silencing the few differently oriented media in combination with the “reorganisation” (read: complete hijacking) of RTV Slovenia, every voice would be silenced. This would actually forcefully silence the citizens of Slovenia, among whom there are more and more people who are already beating themselves on the head because of their vote for the Gibanje Svoboda party.

The effects of the latest version of “socialism tailored to the people” are increasingly manifested through the bizarre (in)action against higher energy and food prices, and this is also what most fuels people’s dissatisfaction. Therefore, it is not surprising that the transition network is trying to break Demokracija magazine and Nova24tv in a way that was also used by former Prime Minister Marjan Šarec and even earlier “critical citizen” Domen Savič: by putting pressure on advertisers. This time, as we have already reported, the Reporter’s convert Igor Kršinar used this kind of disgraceful act, apparently on the instructions of operative Damir Črnčec, otherwise the current state secretary at the Ministry of Defence.

So is the infamous recipe of Yugoslav communist activist Moše Pijade coming true? In 1942, the mentioned communist functionary presented one of the dimensions of the communist takeover of power at a meeting in Avnoj, saying that “it is necessary to create such a large number of homeless people that they will become the majority in the country. That is why we have to burn. We will shoot and retreat. The Germans will not find us, but they will burn the villages in revenge. Then the villagers who are left homeless will come themselves and we will have the nation by our side and in this way we will become the masters of the situation. Those who have neither house nor land nor animals will quickly join us when we promise them a big robbery.” Of course, it was not a new tactic, but one that was already used by the Moscow communist elite in Ukraine in the 1930s, when it triggered the Holodomor, i.e., the death of millions of people due to hunger. Of course, it could not gain I do not know how many followers with this, but during the occupation, the goal of the Communist Party was clear: to take advantage of the poverty of the people and tie it to themselves through hatred of the general welfare. You know, only we can help you, if of course you follow us…

As is known, the post-war communist government with the so-called agrarian reform and nationalisation repeatedly hit farmers and the countryside. It is interesting that in the late wave of the attempt to expropriate agricultural land in 1986, there was a successful resistance in Kamnik – the resistance was led by local resident France Tomšič, the later leader of the strike in Litostroj, and the first president of the Social Democratic Party (Union) of Slovenia. It is these events that can help us to understand the current situation, when Golob’s government, so to speak, without shame and without reservations, breaks and destroys the middle class. Thus, the government recently issued a regulation on the new determination of cadastral income scales. Due to higher incomes in recent years, this has increased drastically, especially for the owners of olive groves, hop farms, vineyards, and forests. And what does this mean in practice? Above all, the drastic reduction of the already low self-sufficiency in food products! In other words: the current government policy wants to establish a kind of totalitarian-paternalistic attitude towards the citizens, where they will be ready to become breadwinners, who will be ready to perform even the dirtiest jobs, for the crumbs from the master’s table.

Of course, this does not mean that the dirty deeds of Golob’s government could soon trigger protests. The problem is that the neo-communist party, during the last Janša’s government, psychologically prepared the public with its protest actions in such a way that the latter will not dare to protest, saying “we do not want to be like them”. Another problem is that there is still a belief on the opposition side that the parliamentary group of the largest opposition party is the one running the game. However, this is not the case. It can (at least for the time being) only protest (in writing) in the parliament. The protests will therefore be in the hands of civil society and not the parties. But one thing is clear: if there are no protests in the fall following the example of the Netherlands and North Macedonia, Slovenia will be in a very bad shape…
