Vaclav Havel (right)

Vaclav Havel was born into a wealthy family.

His grandfather, Vácslav Havel, a real estate developer, built a landmark entertainment complex on Prague's Wenceslas Square.

His father, Václav Maria Havel, was the real estate developer behind the suburban Barrandov Terraces, located on the highest point of Prague—next door to which his uncle, Miloš Havel, built one of the largest film studios in Europe.[9]

Havel's mother, Božena Vavrečková,[10] also came from an influential family; her father was a Czechoslovak ambassador and a well-known journalist.

'An article put today's covid-regime concerns in the context of the spiritual-themed warnings of the famous Czech liberation hero the late Václav Havel (1936-2011)

'Somewhat like Solzhenitsyn, Havel warned that Western modernity had become too technocratic and soul-less, too submissive to alleged 'science', and that decreasing spirituality was a great danger

'Tho about religion, Havel himself remained an eager spiritual 'searcher', rather than someone who was able to say clearly he had found a spiritual home. Havel had some Roman Catholic background in his youth - rare in Czechia, which today is still Europe's most atheistic country - and Havel went to church occasionally, but did not feel able to fully call himself a believer.

'As first post-Communist Czech President, Havel took great pleasure in inviting the Dalai Lama to Prague ... in this photo with the Dalai Lama, Havel is wearing a white 'khata', a ceremonial Buddist scarf ... Havel looking supremely happy

Havel met with his friend the Polish Pope John Paul II at least five times, and later also met with Pope Benedict ... here is Havel with John Paul II

Havel said: "The heavy hand of centralised bureaucracy, makes everyone first powerless, then listless. These systems marginalise community and leave people with a fundamental sense of nonbelonging.

"Respect for human rights will mean nothing as long as this imperative does not derive from the respect of the miracle of Being, the miracle of the universe, the miracle of nature, the miracle of our own existence. It seems man can realize that liberty only if he does not forget the One who endowed him with it."

Was Havel an asset of the CIA?

Did Havel's family have NAZI connections?

Living in truth | The Economist

'The authorities tried to tar the dissidents as CIA stooges, and Mr Havel as the scion of a family of Nazi collaborators.'

Resting in glory Dec 27th 2011

'Havel and his fellow dissidents are routinely portrayed in the west as one big success story, the reality is rather different. 

'A 2009 Lancet study concluded that as many as 1 million working-age men died due to the health problems brought on by mass privatisation. 

'As economies across eastern Europe were restructured so inequalities and social divisions grew. 

'A 2011 OECD report found that Havel's Czech Republic had the joint-second largest rise in income inequality in OECD members since the mid-1980s.

'Havel's true political allegiances came to the fore during his years as president. 

'Like fellow dissident Lech Walesa, he supported the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999

'In 2002, he sided with the rightwing Republican hawks on Iraq.'

As a Czechoslovak native, let me say that rarely in history has a bigger layabout, alcoholic and fraud been lionized than "St. Havel". Just another actor doing his puppetmasters' bidding - that's all he ever was.

Havel was a member of the Club of Rome, as was the Dalai Lama. ... Havel was also a freemason ... dissident Havel, who had a separate luxury cell in prison. ... a drug addict and an alcoholic ... Alexander Dubček was removed only so that Havel could become president ... and Václav Klaus? ... this was proposed by Havel as an economist, his friend George Soros ... Soros was the one who formed the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic after the coup (velvet revolution) in 1989 ... Havel was the elite that formed the NWO, installed as president ... himself Havel was an elite
