Prague – The Czech Republic is once again at a key crossroads, where everything is starting to happen. Former President Václav Klaus said this in the Ballroom at Prague Castle. He criticized the policy of Brussels, which he said pursued goals other than freedom, prosperity and raising the living standards of the people of Europe. Klaus said this at an event commemorating the 103rd anniversary of the founding of independent Czechoslovakia. Together with other associations, it is organized by the Czech Union of Freedom Fighters (ČSBS). It was attended by about 100 people.

According to Klaus, the establishment of the republic on October 28, 1918 remains a “permanent inspiration and reinforcement”. “However, we know that it has not been won. Right now, emerging and dangerously growing new threats require us to make new efforts to secure our state existence and its future,” Klaus said.

According to him, the future cannot be looked at without worries. He sees the threat not only in the limitations associated with the coronavirus pandemic. “We are trying to change the world that our ancestors fought and we grew up in with social engineering and to remake it according to the ideas of a new generation of ideologues who hide their anti-human ideas and world-ruling ambitions behind phrases about saving the planet, fighting climate change, the elimination of completely arbitrarily defined discrimination, for the allegedly needed global government and for other similar progressive goals that are not our goals, “he said. According to him, they are bothered by the existence of nation-states, families and human nature.

He noted that the “destroyers of our world” use mainly international institutions such as the United Nations (UN) and the European Union for their purposes. “As a result, Brussels’ policy pursues goals other than freedom, prosperity and raising the living standards of Europe’s population,” said Klaus.

In his speech, the chairman of the CSBS, Jaroslav Vodička, pointed out that the establishment of Czechoslovakia was accompanied by a flu pandem, against which the society of that time was practically helpless. In this context, he called for adherence to anti-coronavirus hygiene measures. According to him, the newly formed Czechoslovak Republic was democratic in all respects, calling it an island between the authoritarian and semi-fascist regimes of the surrounding countries. “The Czechoslovak Republic ideologically renounced itself from aristocratic and dogmatic traditions. In addition to the abolition of aristocratic titles, the expression of the new conditions was also agrarian reform and extensive social legislation,” he noted.

He also said that by maintaining a historical memory, the CSBS defends the national and resistance traditions and independence of the Czech state and maintains a historical memory of the Czechoslovak resistance and the “great national and state” work begun by Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, Milan Rastislav Štefánik or Edvard Beneš.
