Democracy better than Communism for half of Czechs - poll
Quote:Prague - Some 46 percent of Czechs, down from 53 percent a year ago, are of the view that the current regime is better than the Communist, ruling before 1989, according to a poll conducted by the polling institute STEM and released today.

One-third of Czechs believe that the current regime is worse than the previous one. The figure rose from 27 to 32 percent.

The remaining 22 percent consider both regimes roughly the same.

Since 1992, when STEM started watching the views on the regimes before and after 1989, the ratio of their followers has considerably changed.

The biggest proportion of Czechs, 69 percent, said the current regime was better than the Communist one in 1992.

The figure rose over 60 percent in January 2003 and in November 2006.

The number of the proponents of the current regime was reaching a record low from December 1997 to April 2000, when it stood at 48-49 percent.

At that time, Vaclav Klaus's government faced a recession and problems with the financing of his Civic Democratic Party (ODS).

From 2000 on, the proportion of those preferring the current regime rose to the steady level of 50-60 percent.

Last year, under the government of Petr Necas (ODS) there was again a significant decline.

The current regime tends to be preferred by young, educated and well-off people, who vote for the government coalition parties ODS and TOP 09.

The trust in the current regime fell among the people with low education, aged 45-59 and rather poor in 2010 and 2011.

Last year, there was also an obvious fall of confidence in the current regime among the young, educated and well-off.

The poll was conducted on a sample of 1,119 Czechs over 18 on January 4-11.

Demo-Crazy is evil, Marxism is even more evil. But I can understand the people who think that Communism was better than the current regime. Under Communist rule, all the people had work and enough money to live. Now many people haven't enough to live.....

But Communism isn't the solution of the demo-crazy problem.

Build up the Berlin Wall again and you will see me moving to the Empire of Evil. It had many flaws, but compared to modern reality it was a paradise on earth.

Financial Democracy. Makes even Social Democracy look good.

Might be nice to try a bit of National Democracy some day...




;)

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
Thomas Carlyle
