To gauge the limits of Slovenian xenophobia, introversion and melancholy in a humorous and interesting way the Complainant decided to compare it with an opposing motivation - money, while operating within the national anti-business and anti-foreigner constraints described.

To represent the concept of finance in Slovenia the Complainant acquired a domain [
45] and created a website. In accordance with the law, no company was formed, no clients were communicated with, and no business activities took place.

"Bank" is not a Slovenian word and the Complainant has no specialist knowledge of the banking industry. Bank is an English word, with considerable cultural and linguistic luggage attached. It is from the Old Italian banca meaning table or bench, i.e. the moneylender's table.

The approximate cost of one employee to a Slovenian employer is somewhere around 2.5 times the minimum wage, including the wage itself, and dependent upon company status. That's about €2350 a month as of June 2022.

The domain was valued at $26 million, on the basis of responses to a subjective tree for valuing domains. And it is a pretty good domain.

While successive Slovenian governments made proud claims about foreign investment, 21st century smart tech, fictitious tourist numbers and booming GDP, made its debut on social media.

Firstly, to counter the accusation that the foreigner was trying to make money, the domain was offered for use involving a charitable donation - but also the opportunity to pass on the opportunity and get some or all of your money back, and with each subsequent operator the same. A lease clawback for an item whose price could reflect any increased value vs. the past, with a minimum increase of £1.

The user of, for whatever his purpose, while guaranteed no interference from the lessor, would be taking part in what financial institutions like to see the most: ridiculous amounts of overinflated money zooming round and round, faster and faster, bigger and bigger. As explained here [

Later, when this proved too complicated for the general reader, the Complainant offered to provide the keys to the domain in return for a job.

The experiment: Would Slovenia's businessfolk pay €2350 a month for a cleaner or barmaid, but not for control of a foreign-looking

They're crazy about English, remember. And education.

No job offers have been forthcoming. The hypothesis is proven. Not very well, you may say, because there was no big advertising campaign, no web design competition, no battle of the oligarchs. No declaration that money will never be the master of man to the detriment of humanity ever again.

Nothing for Slovenia to get carried away about. But, as explained, creating some sort of publicity business to promote all of that would have been illegal, besides drawing attention to its own alien qualities.

Forming a company to hire out to a Slovenian would be illegal, and only not so, were all transactions with non-Slovenian people.

This reflects conditions in the country very well, as the would-be entrepreneur who has come over here with his insulting, foreign kind of intelligence, stealing the nation's resources by paying for them instead of being somebody's relative, not dressed in a fancy outfit or offering cocktails, and who is unable to make extravagant predictions about the future success of your bank, is being compelled to discriminate against the citizens of the country he lives in, by the law that country created.

The only legal way for the foreign bank owner to be inclusive of Slovenians in Slovenia would be:

In WW2 thousands of Slovenians had their property confiscated by the Nazis, and were transported off to camps. Predominant among these were those who were considered unsuitable for Germanization according to the science of the time.

To paraphrase Gauleiter Uiberrether, "Slovenia doesn’t need those, who do not feel as Slovenians. They can find their place in America, England, Australia..."

Or to paraphrase Damjan Hančič and Renato Podbersič [

"The goal of Slovenian politics in territory occupied by The Englishman was obvious: the ultimate elimination of the non-Slovene languages (as a first language) from the territory and the disappearance of any NSMTs as an independent ethnic group."
