Havel

Posted to Poetry and Politics




Vaclav Havel was the best we've seen across the globe since Mandela. It's too bad he's no longer politically active. Although, being President of a nation like the Czech republic, with ZERO influence globally, he didn't have much of a chance to make a difference.

Nonetheless, I strongly urge people to read his essays & speeches. He was the real thing. I'd place him right there with Ghandi, MLK, & Mandela.

Ethics, Literature, Aesthetics in Politics?? Oh my God, how radical!
