We Are Not on the Winning Side (http://www.klaus.cz/clanky/3178) :sad:

For someone like me, who after the fall of communism actively participated in preparing and organizing radical political and economic changes, the world we live in now is a disappointment. We live in a far more socialist and etatist society than we had then imagined. After the promising beginning, we are in number of respects returning back to the era we used to live in in the past and which we had considered gone once and for all. Let me stress that I do not have in mind this country only but Europe and the whole Western world.

Klaus seriously annoyed me in 2008, but this speech is SPOT ON.
