Vaclav Havel Died


#1

and there was no thread for him on the reactionist alternate reality forum.


#2

A champion of liberty and human rights. Will be missed by many.

Communism was defeated by "the resistance of Being and man to manipulation." Vaclav Havel


#3

"We may approach democracy as we would a horizon, and do so in ways that may be better or worse, but it can never be fully attained." Summing up, he declared himself neither an optimist ("because I am not sure everything ends well,") nor a pessimist ("because I am not sure everything ends badly") but, instead, "a realist who carries hope, and hope is the belief that freedom and justice have meaning...and that liberty is always worth the trouble."


#4

Never heard of him.

I will wiki him and see what is popping up.
