There’s no crisis in chess and proposals like Kasimdzhanov’s are terrible. I’d take the “former World Champion” title away from that man. Even the “former”.

This from Korchnoi’s interview when he was still alive. That’s a reactive Korchnoi — not proactive. It speaks highly about his age. Do you really want to wait for chess to be in crisis before you take action?
