The Power of the Powerless - Part 1: Havel, Marx, and Lenin

Vaclav Havel respected his communist mentors. That is the context in which we should understand this text.

This post is a placeholder in which to post my first video commentary on Havel’s “The Power of the Powerless”.

One errata: I said he was critiquing the Russian government. This isn’t entirely correct. He’s critiquing the Russian soviet, the Czechoslovakian government, and all other governments he labels as “post-totalitarian”. We’ll get into that, as the commentaries continue.

UPDATE: You can find a playlist with all my commentary on this book, here.
