The six-hour essay in four parts examines the history of regimes and revolutions, leaders and martyrs from a philosophical perspective. The collage of personal memories, staged scenes and archives of collective memory compares the Prague Spring to the Velvet Revolution and shows the exposure, conflict, crisis, and catharsis of the post-communist society. Democracy can be saved through creative laughter, dissolving the untouchability and hypertrophic egos of the representatives of state institutions. The Internet frees the society from representatives of the non-functional connecting link that prevents direct communication between citizens and institutions of power. (“I can see you until I spot you. Once I spot you, I cannot see you anymore.” K. Vachek)
