Maybe for a week but not more. I've been to modern day Belarus and Cuba and observed that while the communist system in those countries have some advantages, quality of life is simply better in a capitalist country.
nah, need warmer for the old bones
**** no. If you think America's corrupt, try living in East Europe or south Asia and see what real corruption is like.
I had a chance to live in something very close for 20 years. The level of bureaucracy was really hard to live with. Also, I did not like massive hypocrisy. Promoting ideas of equality while in fact the access and control over resources and goods was exactly the same or even worse than in the capitalist countries.
I have many fond memories!
The Thieves were created to never live in Soviet nation again. Soviets are sabakas!
You realize the soviet union does not exist anymore.
No, I can think of easier ways to ruin my life!
Comrade Stalin seemed like a great guy. Love to spend some time in the gulag.
Mistakes? He was a malicious murdering dictator that killed tens of thousands of people.
Credit where credit's due.
Good point. Except Stalin was great also in killing civilian citizens of the soviet union.
From what I have read , they are backward countries. Rampant racism ( neo-nazis), crime, drugs, bad economies , secrecy inherited from communist era, near zero transparency, police states in the garb of democracy. It would take three to four generations before these counties become main stream democracies and attract people.
No that is ok. I only said what I read. Now, there is no other way to know things than read news papers/web and watch TV. So , if you claim every thing is a lie, then I think , there is a way to prove it.
Again , Area 51 does not affect normal civilian life. What effects civilian life is when president has almost unanimous power and there is no way to ever remove him/her. There is no other political outfit to challenge. That is scary.
Because i have lived in Australia and have enjoyed a better standard of living then i would have experianced in even the best example of soviet nation. I am also a Christian and i would have faced persecution in life if i lived in a soviet nation. Thats just two reasons. More then enough for me.
The gaol of communism was the end of Christianity and they sent thousands of preachers to death camps to be worked to death. All that was allowed was a watered down fake church under the control of political appointees.
Yeah it's been a good country for me.
depends on my job!
