It is, I reckon, difficult to conceive of a single area of government policy that is at once so important for each of us, so catastrophically complicated, so insanely unjust, so obscenely ineffective, and has been quite so comprehensively cocked up by successive administratations as the British pension system.The Guardian, 2008-12-19, section g2, page 5.

For all the participants in this fascinating debate, "Central Europe" was defined, not by geography, but by values. "Central Europe" was, in György Konrád's words, a Weltanschauung , not a Staatsangehörigkeit (i.e., a way of looking at the world rather than a question of citizenship); for Leszek Ko?akowski it was a "culturally connected area"; for Stefan Kaszy?ski a "state of mind"; for Czes?aw Mi?osz "a way of thinking".Hyde-Price, Adrian G. V. (1996). The International Politics of East Central Europe. Manchester University Press ND.
