"To Kill A Nation" by Michael Parenti [11]

CHAPTER FOUR: SLOVENIA: SOMEWHAT OUT OF STEP



This chapter is only interesting if you accept Parenti's thesis that Yugoslavia was deliberately destroyed by "free marketers" intent on carving out Third-World ethnic enclaves out of the carcass of socialist Yugoslavia. The entire chapter (only five pages) selectively presents some post-war economic and political changes in the republic, trying to show that the success of Slovenia's independence will soon be subverted and destroyed by Western capitalists. Lots of projection, very little context, and virtually no connection to those who directed and instigated the bloodshed of the 1990s.

Move along people, nothing to see here...

It seems that he is wasting more time to defend leftist-apologist socialist values than to make any credible point...
