»Not always when other people don’t share your opinion they are criminals or idiots.« Interview with Ivan Krastev

Ivan Krastev

In Europe liberal democracies are failing. This is what political scientist Ivan Krastev predicts in his essay. He explores the importance of trust and distrust in politics, civil organizations and media. Finally, Krastev argues that migration is a new form of revolution. The most radical thing one can do, is not to fight for a change of government, but to leave the home country in search of a better life.
