I live in a 3rd world country where I can get hospital treatment for free without stealing a rich person's identity.

I live in a 1st world country where I can get the finest medical treatment available because I have excellent insurance...

I'd post a list, but the character limit they impose here isn't nearly large enough to allow me to be comprehensive and I don't want to fill up the thread.

Yugoslavia was a third world country.

The term Third World arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with either NATO, or the Communist Bloc.


I wish Slovenia still was, joining NATO was a panic move that should've been reversed a long time ago.

We joined it in a peaceful time as well, 2004. We've never gained anything from it, except being dragged down into your idiotic wars.

To think that we actually sent soldiers to Afghanistan...

Utter nonsense. Our "poverty line" is 8 times higher than the global average income and only comprises 14.5% of our population. We can do better, but pretending we aren't doing well is a specious exercise in self-delusion. No nation that has a preponderance of fat "poor people" with cell phones and flat screen TV's should be considered an economic shithole.

The 'major players' who were pushing for it at the time have since come out to say that it was a bad idea and should be reversed.

So what's stopping them? It's not like NATO particularly needs you?

So bail out.

And practice saluting Putin's picture.

Don't worry, he'll get there eventually, I just want you to be ready. Pucker up, buttercup!

Yes, which is representative of personal wealth, and illustrative of the glaring inequality that exists within the country, with the poorest being comprehensively shat on by everyone else.

Them specifically? One of them is dead, the other is old and senile.

Us? The EU. Plus it's not like the government would even listen if the demand was ever made, they know where the sweet, sweet €€€ is coming from.

We had a petition to disband the military a few years ago, it gained a bunch of signatures but the gov't acted like it doesn't exist. I don't blame them honestly, we're a puppet state more or less. EU say, Slovenia do.

The funny thing is that every country in the EU blames the external EU for things. Yet somehow the EU makes those decisions, the collection of prime ministers usually. Which means some of our PMs or MPs should be voting in favour of the things the people are bitching about.

Given the number of people that apply to immigrate every year (and the number that don't bother and just come) I guess they don't see it as the failure that you do?

Of course if they have been working their ass off every day and still don't have enough food or shelter, much less entertainment, I can see why they might feel like that.

I think we're a special case in this, we seem to follow EU regulations much more than most other countries.

I mean obviously it's still up to the government to have the final say in things and they are very talented at making the final say very shitty but I also don't remember the last time this final say was against EU regulations. Again, I don't blame them that much because we just don't have the 'leverage' to 'go our own way'.

Next elections should be interesting though. The nationalist party might get back into parliament after a shitload of time because of its anti-EU sentiment alone. The Modern Center Party seems to be losing support for the same reason, though I wouldn't be surprised if people still vote for it out of strategic reasons. United Left support seems to be incredibly high (for a strong left party) and they've already said that they have no problem with leaving the EU if the nation showed support.

I doubt they'll actually do anything but I'm interested in what the prevailing rhetoric will be with the new government, regardless of who actually wins.

It is not like anyone in the EU will miss Slovenia lol. Rest of the countries will just massively increase the costs of your leaving to deter other countries for doing the same.
