Commentary to the Manifesto “The Party of Moderate Progress Within the Bounds of the Law” on the last election
Jaroslav Hašek wrote the electoral manifesto of The Party of Moderate Progress Within the Bounds of the Law for the elections to the Austrian Empire Council in 1911. He posted it in Kravín, a well-known pub in Prague Vinohrady. This appeal to the Czech nation and its up-to-dateness will be examined by the poet Miloš Horanský, who analyses and examines its main thesis that it is not possible to do everything at the same time.
