Look, I don’t have any special love for the Communists. When some jerks attacked KSČM deputies Jiří Dolejš in 2006, I was definitely outraged, because in a state governed by the rule of law, one must not arbitrarily use violence against another person… But such sentiment prevailed in me: Dude? Of course, we all want to do it, but we live in a liberal democracy. No one is worth it to us. ”
I’m just naturally a humanist with an extra pinch of pacifism, but at the same time (even though I’m trying to suppress these thoughts) somewhere deep down, I believe that beating up Nazis and comrades is the right thing to do. I consider the Machines to be one of the greatest heroes of the Czech nation. Both dad and both sons. So if you could tell me, “We should have hung all those red pigs in ’89!” I would probably protest only for form and principle. But I would protest. At least I’d like to think about myself.
I’m forwarding all this so you don’t think I’m some kind of crypto-tankie. If you’re wondering what a “tankie” is, it’s a modern Internet term for people who approve of Soviet intervention. For example, the occupation of Czechoslovakia in the 68th. The mere fact that there is a modern Internet term for them is perhaps a subtle indication that, as a society, we are beating communists a little.
In short, I don’t think you can suspect me of a hidden love for the Communist Party. So!
Monty Python sketch
The court has so far unjustly convicted four former StB agents for harassing dissidents as part of Operation Sanitation. Two were given a two-year condition, two were pardoned because they had already been punished once for their crimes under the previous regime… And one had already been granted a condition in court. I do not mention their names, because on the one hand they are not important and on the other hand I do not want to waste digital space on estébáky. Enough that we have to write about the country’s prime minister.
My point is: Isn’t it, damn, a little late to punish the estebars? Thirty-two years after the revolution? It directly smells like a Monthy Python sketch, when we first condemn the estébáky. Then we will deal with all three surviving protectorate collaborators and finally we will bring to justice Mr. Jan Lučník from Luča, who betrayed Přemysl Otakar II. in the Moravian field.
And I’m not saying that we shouldn’t punish estébáky, I just think we fell asleep a bit… And we also give them quite a bit, by the way. Two years conditionally? I know that by law we can’t steam them anymore, but the law could be a little creative in this exceptional case. I wonder if it would not be a much bigger punishment if the children went to look at them in a block of flats in Ďáblice, where the teacher would point at them and say: “And this is how you will end up doing a truncheon to the totalitarian regime.”
Because what could be a greater punishment for people who sold their souls for power than for the genZ children to look at them and then say, “LOL.” It is better than suspended sentences. Or thrashing. (I think.)
