Mr. Chairman and judges of the Constitutional Court,
I am at this hearing, because the Constitutional Court asked me to present my viewpoint on the proposal made by the Senate of the Czech Republic Parliament to have the Lisbon Treaty, modifying the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty Establishing the European Community as agreed in Lisbon on 17 December 2007, examined in order to assess, whether or not it is compatible with the Czech Republic’s Constitution.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister, Dear guests,
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to meet with you. I am really delighted to be in Ireland again – after more than 10 years.
To return back, nineteen years ago (and we will celebrate this anniversary next week), communism in our country collapsed.

It is my great pleasure to be again in Madrid – after long four years – and to have the opportunity to present my book “Planeta azul (no verde)” here today.
I am really glad that this book of mine has – after Czech, English, German, Dutch, Russian and Polish editions – also its Spanish version, una versión española.

I am really pleased to be here, with President Kaczyński, with Rector Budnikowski, with the representatives of the publishing house Rzeczpospolita, and with all of you.
I am glad that my book “Modrá, nikoli zelená planeta” (in Polish “Błękitna Planeta w Zielonych Okowach”) has – after Czech, English, German, Dutch, Russian and Spanish editions – also a Polish version.

I would like to express my thanks for the invitation to participate in this important gathering.
The organizers of the forum suggested naming my today’s speech “Setting the Right Priorities”. They are probably not satisfied with the way how the priorities are set now or they suppose that I am not happy with it. They are right.

Many thanks for the invitation to this beautiful part of your great country and for honoring me with the Barry Goldwater Award for Liberty. Barry Goldwater is a name I esteem very much, a name I was aware of already in the sixties when he was alive, in the dark communist days. In the former Czechoslovakia, he was considered an arch enemy of the rosy era of building a communist paradise.

Many thanks for the invitation to this beautiful part of your great country and for honoring me with the very prestigious Columbia Award. I am extremely grateful, especially after having seen the list of the past award holders.
I will start with a short story connected with one of them – with George Will who received the award two years ago.

Many thanks for the invitation and for the opportunity to be here with all of you. I have visited the U.S. many times since the fall of communism in November 1989 when – after almost half a century – traveling to the free world became for people like me possible again, but I’ve never been to this beautiful city and to the state of Oregon before. Once again, thank you very much.
