summary One of the greatest effects of the digital media and Internet is the birth of a new political sensibility that extends beyond the boundaries of the local politics. Recent studies show that the digital citizens are more optimistic, tolerant and committed to change. And they vote. They vote for a more democratic society. It is not a surprise that the digital media are getting more attention by the participants in the arena of politics. But the true effect of electronic publishing in post-communist countries is still obscure and in need of scientific investigation. The question whether the positive effects of its technologies can overcome the deeply rooted totalitarian forces can only be answered via qualitative and quantitative analysis of the problem, and then conclusions about patterns can be drawn.
