Petra Fornayová: Manifest of Possibilities

Thursday, 27.05.2021, 20:00,

Our Velvet  Revolution was a turning point for most of us. Manifest of Possibilities does not want to be an objective  enumeration of events. It is a manifesto of different perspectives from which we can look at the revolution and at the times coming after. 

“…One of the most important values of the revolution was the feeling of solidarity. Key values included humanity, human dignity … today we have to ask to what extent reform post-revolutionary laws have in mind these values. (…) Another central value of the revolution was freedom. However, the ethical anchorage of freedom and social dimension has largely disappeared in the post-revolutionary era of transformation.”(Philipp Ther: New Order of the Old Continent_ The story of neoliberal Europe)
