Hydra is an ancient mythical monster with nine dragon heads. Hydra is invincible. If Hydra loses one head, it will grow immediately two*.

Unlike the mythical HYDRA, which has harmed humans, HYDRA Association is here to help people. To help people wherever public power violates the social contract against its citizens. A citizen is a sovereign in his country, not an official, an elected representative or a judge. The citizen merely grants public power authorities so that its officers serve the sovereign citizen.

Where this is not the case and the entrusted public power ceases to serve the citizen, the social contract between the citizen and the state is violated. In such a situation, HYDRA comes in to correct the violation of the social contract on behalf and in favour of the citizen.

In a nutshell, if a public authority or a public officer does not serve a citizen, he/she is misusing his/her public mission. If a public officer violates laws or regulations, that he/she is obliged to observe and apply in the most economical way possible towards sovereign citizen, HYDRA Association intervenes. HYDRA Association never acts for itself or for its own interests, but always in the name and for the benefit of citizen-sovereign (Leviathan)**.

HYDRA Association always acts on behalf of a “citizen-sovereign”, against whom his "officer-servant" (the minister in Latin means a servant) abused his mission to serve the citizen-sovereign. In other words, HYDRA is an instrument of the citizen-sovereign to restore the order (social contract) that the public authority or its officer has violated by its acts or omissions to act.

Visions and objectives

Association for the Rights of Citizens and Entrepreneurs, z.s. (hereinafter referred to as "APOP")

State power can only be exercised in cases and within the limits set by law, in the manner stipulated by law. (Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms of the Czech Republic, Article 2(2))

APOP was created to meet several basic objectives - short, medium and long-term. Because APOP would primarily like to be a progressive association of people with an open mind, it has great potential to meet the defined goals set, set other goals and thus create through systematic work one of the pillars of democracy without links to politicians.

One of APOP's main objectives is to help those who feel harmed by improper or illegal action by government authorities. Few people are able to navigate through all the legislation governing a number of areas of public administration. This can often lead to the denial of the right of an individual or society due to the incorrect or illicit acting of an administrative authority.

APOP also aims to develop educational activities in the field of fundamental rights of citizens or entrepreneur in relation to state administration bodies. The “nobility-like supremacy approach” of the state administration authorities is inadmissible.

APOP considers it necessary to KNOW and UNDERSTAND. The key to knowledge is, among other things, the exercise of the right to information. Indifference is unconstructive and, as a result, harms civil society.

APOP aims to contribute by the resources at its disposal in the cultivation and reform of the state administration in order to fulfill the purpose entrusted to it by laws.

Last but not least, APOP is a society that aims to create space for both internal and external dialogue.
