In memory to Václav Havel
"Fear of history is not just fear of the future but also fear of the past. I would even say that these two fears are conditional, one on the other. A person who is afraid of what is yet to come is generally also reluctant to look in the face of what has been. And a person afraid to look at his own past must fear what is to come."
