Putin Made Us Lose to Progressivism, Multiculturalism and Globalism

English Pages, 6. 4. 2022

Putin's horrible, inexcusable war has not only resulted in thousands of casualties, enormous material damage, the disintegration of many countries' finances and a severe blow to the world economy – which is being noticed by many  –  but has resulted, and especially will result in a significant shift in the current global cultural and civilizational conflict.

Václav Klaus for the Moroccan News Agency about Western Sahara

English Pages, 24. 3. 2022

How do you read Spain’s new position as regards the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara?

I take it as a serious step forward. The inhabitants of Western Sahara deserve a permanent solution of this conflict, which must be based both on existing realities and on meaningful proposals. Any other solution than keeping the Western Sahara territory inside Morocco means the denial of the status quo. That would be destructive and extremely costly for all sides.

Václav Klaus for the Visegrád Post: Realistically about the Tragic Situation in Ukraine

English Pages, 23. 3. 2022

The suffering of hundreds of thousands of civilians as well as that of soldiers (and not only professionals), not to mention the enormous material damage that will affect not only the places where the fighting is taking place, as well as huge consequences of the massive wave of refugees are still incalculable. There is no reason to try to quantify them at the beginning of the whole tragic process. Now, it is necessary to appeal for an immediate ceasefire, for a truce, for a readiness to be able to accept meaningful and seriously proposed compromises.

Václav Klaus about Ukraine for the Egyptian daily Al Masry Al Youm

English Pages, 19. 3. 2022

لا يمكن حتى الآن إحصاء حجم معاناة مئات الآلاف من المدنيين والجنود الأوكرانيين، فضلًا عن الأضرار المادية الضخمة التي لن تؤثر على الأماكن التي يدور فيها القتال فحسب، والعواقب الهائلة للموجة الكبيرة من اللاجئين، كما أنه لا يوجد سبب لمحاولة تحديد حجمها في بداية هذه العملية المأساوية، ولكن ما هو ضرورى الآن هو المطالبة بوقف فورى لإطلاق النار وهدنة والاستعداد لقبول التنازلات الهادفة والجدية المُقترحة.

The Forgotten Anniversary: Gordon Tullock would have turned 100

English Pages, 17. 2. 2022

Economics and economists fall into oblivion. I am convinced that this is to the detriment of all of us. On Sunday 13 February, it was 100 years since one of the greatest economists of the 20th century, Gordon Tullock, was born in Rockford, Illinois. He lived to the ripe old age of 92 and died in 2014. He never won the Nobel Prize, but many economists think he should have.

Open Letter of the Václav Klaus Institute to the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Petr Fiala Regarding the Situation in Ukraine

English Pages, 14. 2. 2022

Dear Mr. Prime Minister,

We follow with great concern your – for us – incomprehensible passivity towards what is happening in and around Ukraine. You probably agree with us that the situation is unsustainable and extremely dangerous for everyone. The conflict in Ukraine has been in the long term the biggest security threat on our continent. The ongoing military escalation threatens the whole of Europe, including the Czech Republic. Even though our public does not seem to acknowledge the imminent danger, the possibility of an open military conflict in our vicinity is very real.

Václav Klaus at the 19th Vienna Congress com.sult: Save Freedom, not the Future

English Pages, 9. 2. 2022

I know that expressing disagreement with the main slogan of the 19th Vienna Congress com.sult is provocative, if not iconoclastic. I am fully aware of this. I also know that in the current crazy and demeaning pandemic atmosphere, in the shadow of the destructive Green Deal attack on the economy, in the moment of the return of high inflation (after years of fearing deflation) – which together create the most critical moment of the post-World War II era – one shouldn’t easily and light-heartedly disagree with someone who stands on the same side on these major issues of the day.

Václav Klaus Institute on Commissioner Leyen's attacks on Poland

English Pages, 21. 10. 2021

When democracy in Europe, or rather in the European Union, is under threat, it is necessary for European democrats to protest loudly. What is at stake today is not insignificant. In her speech in the European Parliament on October 19, Mrs Leyen declared that the recent ruling by the Polish Constitutional Court challenging the supremacy of EU laws “calls into question the foundations of the European Union”. According to Leyen, it is her “Commission's duty to protect the rights of EU citizens” and therefore “the Commission will act.” That is an unprecedented statement.

Václav Klaus Institute on the Situation in Afghanistan: The West Has No Right to Impose Its Vision of Social Order on Anyone

English Pages, 16. 8. 2021

The shocking and, for many, surprising developments in Afghanistan – the rapid debacle of the Afghan government sustained by Western intervention (led by the USA) and the triumphant victory of the Islamist Taliban movement – confirm the long-standing position of the Václav Klaus Institute (IVK) on this conflict and our involvement in it.
