Jacek Kuroń – Democratisation as a mental attitude (140/150)


[Q] Jacek, our entire history if you take into consideration the periods ’56, ’68, ’70 – we pass from hope to crisis… I am opposed to this kind of thinking. I understand it very well, understand that that’s how it can be, yet it’s not a way of thinking but a mental attitude, it’s depressive. In its extreme form it’s called manic-depression. Whereas what I’m saying is that this is a process and it’s going on indefinitely so it’s an indefinite process which is moving forward all the time. It moves in a zig-zag pattern but there are no failures there.
