The President's Endorsement of John Fonte’s book Sovereignty or Submission

English Pages, 30. 8. 2011

John Fonte accurately identifies the coalition of institutions, interests and individuals that are promoting global governance and convincingly argues against their attempts to undermine the democratic nation-state. Whatever formal structure it might have, a global government would, in effect, control our lives, with no possibility for us to exert any real influence on it. In such a world order, the concept of citizenship would rapidly become extinct.

Interview of the President for the Brazilian Weekly Época about the book Blue Planet in Green Shackles

English Pages, 18. 8. 2011

When did you decide to write Blue Planet in Green Shackles? When was the first time you felt that the freedom was in danger?

I entered the global warming debate in the middle of the last decade when I saw that the voice of the economists in the debate is almost entirely missing. I started to see the ideology of environmentalism as a problem already at the beginning of the 1970s in the context of the activities of the infamous Club of Rome and of its irresponsible catastrophic forecasts.

Threats to Freedom in the 21st Century: Perth Speech

English Pages, 31. 7. 2011

Many thanks for giving me the opportunity to be here today. In Perth and Western Australia I am for the first time but this is already my third stay in your country. My first visit took place in 1991, a short time after the fall of communism. The speeches I gave here at that time were devoted both to our very depressing experience with life under the old regime and to our endeavors – that were already under way – to make a better future.

Fiscal Disasters and Recoveries: Notes for the Coolum Panel

English Pages, 30. 7. 2011

It is neither a great discovery nor a courageous analytical insight to say that we live in an era of huge fiscal disasters and of very slow and unconvincing recoveries. It is a wide-spread phenomenon, not relevant for a small group of randomly chosen countries only, but it is not global. It is a Euro-American problem (and I don’t want to speculate whether Australia belongs to it or not). It certainly does not exist in Asia, Latin America or Africa.

Interview of the President of the Czech Republic for The Australian about global warming

English Pages, 21. 7. 2011

You have been an outspoken voice on the ideological aspects of the climate change debate. How much are current calls to cut carbon emissions politically motivated, inspired by a desire to harm industrialised economies and liberal democracies rather than motivated by a desire to assist the environment? Has climate action become a replacement for Communism and its variants for the activist political left to continue their battle against free market economics?

Notes for the Independence Day Speech 2011

English Pages, 30. 6. 2011

Mr. Ambassador, Dear Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me congratulate you on the 235th Day of Independence of the United States of America. I have been attending this traditional gathering for many years and it gives me always a great pleasure to meet so many Czech and American friends, so many Czechs and Americans who contribute to the friendly relations between our two countries.

Edwin Feulner: President Klaus' 70th Birthday

English Pages, 22. 6. 2011

In the late 1980s, the fight against global communism entered a crucial phase. President Reagan publicly pressed Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. Pope John Paul II and Lech Walesa gave Polish workers the courage to rise up against their communist masters. The Velvet Revolution sprang up in Czechoslovakia.

The Problems of the European Integration: Hillsdale Speech

English Pages, 11. 6. 2011

Many thanks for the invitation to address this distinguished audience here, in Berlin, at this very unique and historic place although I would have preferred if you’d chosen Prague, which is, after all, the real heart of Europe. As some of you may know, this is not my first contact with Hillsdale College. I quite vividly remember my visit at Hillsdale which happened more than ten years ago – in March 2000.

The Global Warming Doctrine is Not a Science: Notes for Cambridge

English Pages, 10. 5. 2011

Not respecting the title of the conference, I will continue using the term global warming, rather than its substitute, retreat already signaling, but in any case misleading term climate change. And I will not concentrate my talk on the current or potentially forthcoming global warming itself because – given the available data and conflicting scientific arguments – I don’t see it as a phenomenon which is threatening us.

Center for Economics and Politics: Global Warming - Reality, or Bubble?

English Pages, 22. 4. 2011

Does statistically significant global warming exist? If so, is it a natural phenomenon, or has it been caused by man? If we were to take the decision to prevent it from occurring, is there anything we can do about it? Are we to be worried about a possible slight temperature increase? These are the main questions addressed by the latest proceedings of the Center for Economics and Politics called “Global Warming – Reality, or Bubble?”
