#The Velvet Revolution and Divorce of Czechoslovakia is a unique case, which does not tend to occupy space in the minds of the Western World. The revolution in Czechoslovakia did not present the common feature of violence and bloodshed; on the contrary it was executed by the power of the people through peaceful demonstrations that lead to the end of communist rule. The Velvet Divorce however is somewhat a difficult event to pin point in what relation to what happened behind the closed doors in Prague as conflicts of interest emerged between the two main political leaders Vaclav Klaus and Vladimir Meciar. Both agents represent the opposite regions respective to Czechoslovakia. The central theme for this project is that power can be executed in various approaches, including the power to refuse executing it.
