The Eastern bloc is wired.
"We had no rights, basic food, they told us what to do, where to go, what to think, you have no idea"
"So things are better now?"
"Absolutely not, back then nobody was homeless, nobody was unemployed, nobody starved”
“Wait, people are starving in your country?
“Oh no, nobody STARVES, they just don’t LIVE”
Its a real eye opener, it seems that the new boss is only marginally better, sometimes worse than the old boss. I have a friend from over there who is here and wants to see how a "Real country works". But the sad reality is that UK is a special case that could not be replicated in eastern europe as there is no way they will accept a system like we have.....not many would.
