Example text

Nevertheless, the problem remains that newcomers prefer to learn English. Thirty-seven per cent of Canadians with some French background spoke English at the workplace in 1975, whereas only 6 % of predominantly English-speakers turned to French in a comparable situation (Meisel 1975: 350). The protection of national languages in democracies has to be reconciled with the principle of equal opportunities. The size of the constructed macro-aggregate is no determinant factor for its success. Revivals rarely have been as successful as the rediscovered Hebrew culture in Israel.

Defenders of collective rights justify this, hinting at the possibility of dissenting individuals in democracies ‘opting out’ and moving into another area. In the Basque Country not only have about a thousand people who oppose ETA policies been killed, but about 200,000 citizens have left the area, and the majority of those who speak exclusively Spanish is frightened, as are moderate Basques (Thibaud 2005: 70). 32 2 Historical Memory in Nation-Building and the Building of Ethnic Subsystems This conviction of the Basque essentialists frequently contradicts another value so dear to many ideologues of minorities and their historical memory: Heimat, the right to live in one’s home area.

The normative conception enjoyed a huge revival after the end of totalitarian rule. Most of the anti-Communist dissenters in the period of Communist decay needed the concept of ‘totalitarianism’ as a contrast to their ideal of a civil society, just as after the war ‘totalitarianism’ was very popular because it was the counter-concept to the democratic revival. Parallels have correctly been drawn between Jaspers and Havel in their concept of totalitarianism (Ballestrem 1995: 117–125). Even the idea of guilt was to be found in the work of Havel, who hardly knew Jaspers’ post-war political writings (Havel 1991; Jaspers 1963).
