A Story About a Small Nation's (False) Self-Perception[edit]

This story will tell you what you always wanted to know, but was afraid to ask ;-) about the origin of Slovene self-perception: "little Davids fighting the big Goliaths".
But is it really only a (false) self-perception? Let's see the evidence.

After WWI, Slovenes ended up with a quarter of ethnic body amputated
according to the secret plan devised by Western "Allies"
who promised the amputated Slovene part to Italians to lure them into
the First World War and the Front on the mainly Slovene land, although -
ironically - called the Italian Front
that was described by Western literary hero Hemingway
who was heroically unaware of the suffering
inflicted by both armies
upon the natives,
who were resettled and
sent to Italy to civilan refugee camps
where instead of finding peace
they found out they were enemies
because they did not find the big
post-war amputation plan very appealing.



The annexed western quarter of Slovene speaking territory, and approximately 327,000 out of the total population of 1.3[1] million Slovenes,[2] were subjected to forced Fascist Italianization. On the map of present-day Slovenia with its traditional regions' boundaries.

  2. ^ Cresciani, Gianfranco (2004) Clash of civilisations, Italian Historical Society Journal, Vol.12, No.2, p.4

Less then a quarter of century later,
without a quarter of body,
the nation was, as the only present-day European nation,
furtherly trisected and annexed during Second World War
by German Nazis, Italian Fascists and Hungary,
as shown on the next map.





War crimes committed
against the civilian population in Slovenia
by Fascist Italy were never persecuted after the war.
And America had an active role in this.
So I dared to ask the U.S.A. ambassador Joseph A. Mussomeli about it.

So I dared to ask the U.S.A. ambassador about it here[edit]

And Now For Something Completely Different[edit]

A humorous visual guide

to associations between ideas of three groups
of political/economical philosophers

from three Western European traditions (i.e. Latin, Anglo-Saxon, and Teutonic),
three modes of inspecting bad things (including war crimes),
and three kinds of toilet shapes in the respective traditions.
Caution: Not for easily offended eyes


Tell me the shape of a toilet you are sitting on, and I will tell you what is your ideology[edit]

And now, really, for something completely different

Tell me how much of activist you are, and I will tell you which country you are from[edit]

Hi DancingPhilosopher, as long as you don't explain what color means what percentage this map remains incomprehensible.--Ies (talk) 16:10, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
  Hi les, thank you for reminding me that I forgot to update the image description. I updated it today. See here; I hope it makes sense now.--DancingPhilosopher (talk) 15:08, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
