What is the culture of discussion in Slovakia? Is it closer to Voltair’s ideal which is saying “ I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” or to the exact opposite – “I disapprove of what you say but I will find the means to stop you from any further discussions.”
Are we capable of respecting other opinions, accepting different points of views instead of rejecting them immediately? Are we good at argumentation? Do we know the basics of argumentation? Do we know how to create thoughtful and qualified decisions on all levels of political and societal life? Who is even worthy of discussion?
We are delighted to bring you another evening of Michal Vasecka where we will be covering the current topics under the name “Culture of Discussion in Slovakia. Yeti or Sleeping Beauty?”
