Unscramble the Blue Letters

And the first thing that went right was, of course, these five revolutions which, in my view, very much changed the way we're living and deepened our democratic epinerecxe. And the first was the cultural and social revolution of 1968 and 1970s, which put the individual at the center of politics. It was the human rghtis mneomt. Basically this was also a major outbreak, a culture of dissent, a culture of basically non-conformism, which was not known before. So I do believe that even things like that are very much the children of '68 — nevertheless that most of us had been even not born then. But after that you have the market revolution of the 1980s. And nevertheless that many people on the left try to hate it, the truth is that it was very much the market reivutolon that sent the message: "The gernvnmoet does not know better." And you have more choice-driven societies. And of course, you have 1989 — the end of Communism, the end of the Cold War. And it was the birth of the global world. And you have the Internet. And this is not the audience to which I'm going to preach to what enxtet the Internet empowered people. It has cheagnd the way we are communicating and basically we are viewing politics. The very idea of political cmunmotiy totally has changed. And I'm going to name one more revolution, and this is the revolution in brian sciences, which ttoally changed the way we understand how people are making decisions.

And the first thing that went right was, of course, these five revolutions which, in my view, very much changed the way we're living and deepened our democratic experience. And the first was the cultural and social revolution of 1968 and 1970s, which put the individual at the center of politics. It was the human rights moment. Basically this was also a major outbreak, a culture of dissent, a culture of basically non-conformism, which was not known before. So I do believe that even things like that are very much the children of '68 — nevertheless that most of us had been even not born then. But after that you have the market revolution of the 1980s. And nevertheless that many people on the left try to hate it, the truth is that it was very much the market revolution that sent the message: "The government does not know better."
