Seminar on myths on socialism and social state

On June 25, 2018, Grigorij Mesežnikov took part in seminar titled Myths on socialism and social state, organized by the Conservative Institute of Milan Rastislav Štefánik in Bratislava. The results of public opinion poll (quantitative and qualitative), conducted in cooperation with FOCUS Research Agency, were presented at the event.

In his contribution, IVO president focused on two categories of factors that help shaping, persisting and spreading the myths of socialism and social state: those related to the influence of political actors with specific settings in this issue and those related to the current public discourse, marked by the long-term socio-cultural orientations of large part of the population and problematic content touching the perception of society’s development and world affairs (including conspiracy ideas). 

Together with Grigorij Mesežnikov participants of the panel included sociologist Martin Slosiarik (FOCUS agency) and psychiatrist and psychotherapist Jozef Hašto. They discussed the myths and nostalgia behind the communist past. Discussion was moderated by journalist Michal Novota (weekly .týždeň).
