Thirty years ago I read Power of the Powerless I was working in a homeless shelter and watching the homeless population swell under Reagan s deregulation of the housing market and the injustice done to the mentally ill of this country I read it then I guess hoping for some step by step instructions to overcome the the cold hearted capitalism that was causing such suffering I work now at a affordable housing organization and daily I m reminded that we still live with the hardships Reagan decided we could live with Before 1980 rental costs were figured at 25% of monthly income Federal Housing rents and subsidies were matched to that percentage Reagan increased the percentage to 30% cutting an additional 5% into the already meager assistance from poor families Almost 40 years later 30% is still the benchmarkThirty years ago Havel s essay showed me the similarities between the post totalitarian regime he struggled under and our post democratic systemAside from the collapse of Soviet Bloc not much has changed in 30 yearsI picked up this essay again after last November s rise of The Swamp Thing Under Reagan I did not feel totally helpless There were Democratic opponents strong in congress willing to uphold the safety net and Civil Rights that Roosevelt Kennedy and Johnson had set Now there are few Most Democrats speak neo liberalism and Capitalism even in its deadly embarrassing death spasms seems to still hold allure as if there is still some way we will buy our way out of declining natural resources and increasing pollution of our water air and habitatHavel s essay is most hopeful when he speaks of creating a parallel polis Large masses of Czechs Slovaks Poles and Others rejected the official culture of the Communist countries and created their own circulating samizdat writings staging unofficial rock music concerts and plays creating not just a community but a whole society that tolerated their official governments just enough to stay in most cases and when not pushed too hard out of prison but offered no support no legitimacy to the regimes In crises of course the regimes could not rely on the people and abandoned they collapsedIn the final sections of the essay Havel speaks of a need for an allegiance to a human order above any sort of political order He acknowledges the world not just the post totalitarian states but the world is imperiled by what Heidegger described as humanity s ineptitude when face to face with the planetary power of technology We are beholden to technology and automation Havel suggests small self managed communities are the way to overcome the enslavement of technologies After writing much about the post totalitarian societies of the Communist states he writes knowingly of the powerlessness found in the Western post democratic statesThere is a certain satisfaction rereading this essay now knowing how things unfolded in Eastern Europe Last year however I attended a talk by Eda Kriseova writer professor Havel s press secretary and biographer She spoke of the political culture of contemporary Czechia She recounted sadly about the consumer culture the xenophobia and the regressive politicians The Czech lands are no better at fending off the enticements of technologyI reread Power of the Powerless in the last month while reading about the appointments of anti environmental EPA heads Corporate CEOs for Secretary of State racist Attorney Generals and anti union Secretaries of Labor I was looking for some parallels between the Communist totalitarians and the new Capitalist totalitarians I realised that dissidents of the Soviet Bloc were struggling primarily to voice their culture native historic and chaotic not political idealistic and regimented The Communist governments always declared their belief in human rights When they imprisoned artists expelled writers for their free expression the people pointed out the contradictionHere Now in the greatest post democracy in the world we have few who contest our right to express ourselves The threat is there are men in power that want to deny our human rightsThe Power of the Powerless is a valuable document as history as a primer as an ideal
