The anti-government demonstration, which was also attended on Wednesday by the head of the ANO movement Andrei Babish and the chairman of the communists Kateri Konechya, and other government promises to support certain social groups were the two main topics of today’s regular Reflexe program. Miroslav Kalushka and Marko Stonish.
“I respect the right to assemble, but I find it tragicomic to demonstrate against retirement at the age of sixty-eight. After all, none of the protesters will retire at 68,” says Miroslav Kalousek. In his opinion, the protests against Euronorm 7, which should significantly restrict the automotive industry after 2025, are also meaningless, since the Fiala government is trying to change it in the EU. “If I worked for Škoda, I would also worry about my professiol fate,” says Marek Stonis.
In connection with the current anti-government speeches, Miroslav Kalovsky is somewhat concerned about the fact that we are turning from a creative and efficient society, which we were after November, into a demanding society. “I have the right to everything. From free diapers to subsidizing my business empire with the argument: if you do not give me five billion subsidies, I will not make a profit. This is the path to gradual disintegration,” says Miroslav Kalousek. In this context, Marek Stonisch reminds us of the new discussions about the evidence of a decline in the birth rate among the Czech population, and whether the state, or rather the Ministry of Social Affairs, should support the birth rate with a new family policy: “It says here that politicians are obliged to create conditions for people to have children. With this, I would like to pay tribute to our ancestors who had children, wanting nothing from politicians, without their approach we would not be here,” recalls Kalousek, adding that “if this continues, we will all have everything “Some make claims, but the money will not be there, because most of those who make claims lose sight of the mystery of the origin of the money.”
Why does Miroslav Kalousek consider the participation of Andrej Babiš in an anti-government demonstration shameless? How are subsidies destroying the business environment in the Czech Republic? What is the relationship between investment in family policy and fertility, and which politician’s proposal is the most absurd in this regard? Today’s episode of the regular Reflexe program by Miroslav Kalushka and Marko Stonis answers these questions and more.
