Slovenes, Jefferson, and the Social Contract of Governance
The Slovenes are a small nation, and this speaks to our historical moment. A friend of mine remarked to me, "You know, you Slovenes are more conservative than us Poles". No, not all of us; not the direct ancient line.
The history here was adapted: Carinthia is English for Karantanija, the ancient name for Slovenija; duke is English for knez; the social contract was you will rule over us for the year, and if you fail us, you die.
