Excerpts from a report in the national-liberal journal "Die Grenzboten"
Judgments about the political goals and motivations of other groups and nations were often full of stereotypes, prejudices, and insinuations. Not infrequently, they were associated with various conspiracy theories or with the assumption of one's own superiority and the inferior value of another culture. The text from the German national-liberal newspaper exemplifies this. The accusation that Czech politics was in principle anti-liberal was generally present since 1848 and was also advocated by Karl Marx, among others.
