Re: "Campaign 2002: Bare bums and the blues,"By Martina Pisárová, Vol. 8 No. 27, July 15 - 21
The trend in the use of posters and media for amusement, ridicule and propaganda rather than promoting ideas and principles follows an international trend. The recent elections in Hungary are a prime example, with the inspiration for that country largely attributable to western trends and the US in particular.
As Slovak people find themselves increasingly isolated from political parties and disillusioned by past elections, the elements will turn to alternative methods of getting what they want. This was pushed to the extreme in Hungary. I hope Slovakia does not go down the same path.
