Debate linked to the publication of Erik Tabery’s book Opuštěná Společnost (Forsaken Society), which explores the development of the Czech state and the challenges it faces today and will face in future. Are we capable of learning from our hitherto mistakes? What advice can history give us? It is possible to completely change the basic values of a state, the values it was originally built on? Is populism a driving force today? These and other issues will be discussed.

Guests: Erik Tabery, editor-in-chief of the weekly Respekt, Jiří Pehe, political scientist and commentator, Jaroslav Šebek, historian focused on the history of Czech political parties at the Institute of History at the Czech Academy of Sciences.

Chaired by Andrea Procházková.

The debate is organised by Názorování in cooperation with the Václav Havel Library and the Paseka publishing house.

Diary entry for 15 April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„I’m finding Americans more and more likeable. I am bothered less and less by thimgs I once found hard to accept, or even ridiculous. Nevertheless, to be fair, I will mention several such annoyances.“
