@”Kapitán Denis” all of my knowledge of modern Slovak (and Czech) history comes from one book, Dejiny Slovenska, Dušan Kováč 1998 (which I have in Serbian, so it’s Istorija Slovačke ). It think it’s a good and pretty objective book. So I don’t have some extreme knowledge of it and to be honest I’m more interested in Yugoslav history than the Czecho-Slovak history, since my ancestors were involved in it. Anyway, communists had the majority the entire time and it took them three years to ban political opponents and destroy democracy. Is that correct?
On the original comment, Slovak are resilient, but more importantly Slovaks are smart and rational for their own good. Multiple times in history Slovaks kept their cool and passed over some things for which our southern cousins would go berserk.
