Existence and co-existence in liberal democracy after 1989: a critical Czech perspective. – The article deals with the profound forms of existence and co-existence in the Central and East Europe after 1989 with a focus on the Czech Republic. The beginning of the new democracy is considered as to elements of Agamben’s state of exception that are explored regarding Havel’s concept of non-political politics. The point is that non-political politics putting values above the law failed to establish a pillar of liberal democracy, which is the rule of law.
