Abstract

In his brutally critical feature films of the 1960s, the Czech film director Milos Forman recorded remarkable, cringeworthy instances of callousness in the everyday behaviour of ordinary Czechs. But perhaps that was only the beginning? In this Britské listy interview, Jan Čulík and Bohumil Kartous discuss the unusually high levels of self-centeredness and hostility towards other members of the community amongst today's ordinary Czechs. Was it the introduction of extreme individualism into Central-Eastern Europe after the fall of communism that has led to the current high levels of populism in these countries? The discussion was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Friday 31st August, 2018
