The Impact of Floods of Information on Democracy

Many people today are suffering from a crisis of identity. The open world appears ever more complicated, there is a surfeit of information and people are losing their grasp on it. Is this the cause of a falloff in trust in traditional institutions and democracy? And how is this connected with growing calls for strong leaders? Come and debate these issues.

The event is being held in cooperation with the Institute for Christian Democratic Politics and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.

The Czech Fate – essay

„I don’t believe in that Fate at all and I think that in the first instance we are engineers of our own fate… After all, what happened did not happen because we are Czechs and Czechs always have to suffer at the hands of their neighbours (because that is their “Czech Fate”), but for quite different , more specific reasons.“

Václav Havel:
The Czech Fate – essay, February 1969
