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.

Diary entry for 10 July 2005, To the Castle and Back

„I’ve run away. I’ve run away to Hrádeček. I’m here alone and I feel uneasy. Everything reminds me of the decades I’ve been through in this place. I like it here. It’s my refuge, my existential home, but again and again I realize there’s no going back, and that by now I’m not the same person I was when I wrote my plays, prepared my experimental meals, threw light-hearted parties, and organised secret dissident meetings. I’m older, sicker, wearier.“
