Czech President On Collectivism
"The enemies of free societies today are those who want to burden us down again with layer upon layer of regulations," Mr. Klaus said.
We had that in communist times. But now if you look at all the new rules and regulations of EU membership, layered bureaucracy is staging a comeback."
The European Union's 30,000 bureaucrats have produced some 80,000 pages of regulations that the Czech Republic and the other applicants for EU membership will have to adopt.
