The Demon of Consent
A rudimentary work of slovak prose that deals with the period of stalinism. It is the confession about slavery agreeing with the power, about the after death cry of Bartolomej Boleraz, a socialist poet, who dies together with a communist officer in a helicopter.
The Demon of Consent was an important text in the time of its origin and publishing and is important nowadays as well. Because also nowadays the world is full of figures that, covered by the safety of the crowd and without the ability to predict and have principles, they agree with whatever. A figure is a dangerous person because they think that they are not responsible for anything, that there are important people up there, that think instead of them, speak and plan, take the responsibility for them... Well, and that is the road that leads straight to hell.
