DMS Posted October 27, 2014 Share Posted October 27, 2014 What?! As matter of state policy absolutely not, where the hell did that red herring come from? Realy? Then why do you believe in same nonsence about USSR? Your insightful and detailed posts have convinced me that all 25 years of studying the Soviet Union was a waste of my time. I apparently don't know anything and that means the degree in History I have is worthless. Thanks to you I now know that the Soviet Union was a wonderful place to live in and the millions of people who fled from the Soviet Union to the United states are all liars. My mistake! That's great info to know! But I wonder why so many countries that used to be part of the beautiful, loving Soviet Union were so happy to break from it in 1989/1990. And why few of them are in fear of Russia taking over their territory again. I guess it's just one big misunderstanding by the people that lived through the Soviet era? Steve I don't want to convince anybody, language barrier, different education, different knowledges. Just can't resist when read something... Surprising, I would say. Because elite decidied that western way of life is much better then communism. Much better to have a lot of expensive cars and a lot of money in capitalistic state then official "Volga" and lack of inheritance of social status. IMHO. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
