For example, Klaus deemed the bailout “irresponsible protectionism” with excessive regulation, and has argued that global warming is a myth, and that the fight against it “threatens economic growth,” The New York Times reported. Klaus has also called for the EU to be dissolved, and has vehemently opposed the Lisbon Treaty, which he feels “will strip countries of sovereignty.”
His strong views reflect his past, some say. In an interview, Klaus said, “If you lived under communism, then you are very sensitive to forces that try to control or limit human liberty,” according to the Times.
