I agree. I was just there in July, and just seeing the old commie blocks just sends shivers up my spine. It makes me very sad as I think of that time period and what horrible conditions; socially, economically, politically, etc. these people lived through. They say that there are no victims and that people choose their leaders and governments, but I still have to feel sorry for the people who lived there in the very recent past. However, communism seems to have taken on somewhat of resurgence.....guess people would rather tell them what to do than to take on the difficult task of sorting out choices that comes with free thought.
