Lenguas wrote:Es muy bueno Está bien. Pero aquí también es posible minimizar el mal que se mira en la televisión. (Por supuesto simplemente nunca ver la televisión funciona también.) Hay muchos dibujos animados en la televisión (los miro en castellano) que no tienen malas influencias, Programas desde antes de circa la media mediados de los años 1960 son también buenos. Hay programas desde el siglo XXI y tarde finales del XX, especialmente programas por para niños, son buenos también, pero se debe tener cuidado. No se debe ver las noticias por supuesto. Normalmente los programas malos son en la tarde y noche. Es posible recibir una sinopsis del programa para decidir si ver el programa o no. Es una buena idea. Yo veo programas malos a veces, pero no muy malos programas.
Sí, ciertamente la televisión tiene una grande efecto en la gente. Frecuentemente la gente actúa como la gente que vene en la televisión. Y hay mucha presión de los pares compañeros/amigos para ver malos programas.

Communists had money too, but I think what people could do with their money was much more limited than in a capitalist system, wasn't it? Investments and so on.
loqu wrote:Lada's point of view sounds pretty much like the Ostalgie Tyler mentioned, but your arguments, Mona, sound rather like specially biased reports of how inhuman communism was.
Idk, call me biased, but I'm sure communism is one of the most vile ideologies humankind has ever come across. It's up there with fascism on the scale of brutality.

You haven't noticed before that Lenguas isn't always in touch with what goes on outside his town house?

It takes living in a communist country to see all the lies, and how inhumane it actually is. I consider myself extremely lucky to be born in a time when the CPV is no longer truly communist. They're still deceitful and oppressive as ever, but at least they're now too busy receiving bribe, and so not axe crazy anymore.
The most frustrating thing about it, is that atrocities get covered up, and young people actually get brainwashed into believing the regime and Vietnam are one and the same.
loqu wrote:I'm sad that you've come to have that opinion, though I totally understand why you think so. I can't consider those regimes truly communist because they weren't/aren't. But well, I must acknowledge they have ruined the ideology, which I strongly believe it's the best in theory. Of course I admit I'm also severely biased, having grown up in the working class in a capitalist ex-fascist country and inside a left-wing leaning family.

Me too, but this was when only about 50% (of boys) had to do the military service. I acted just crazy enough to end up in the reserve. I guess they won't call me since we have a purely professional military force these days, luckily. Hopefully the military will be privatized soon earning its money from seizing foreign oil fields and such.

Well, 1989 is the symbolic year. the Cold War could be said to have ended in 1985 too becoming a "Lukewarm War". The final nail in the coffin was of course given in 1991, as you suggest.JackFrost wrote:The Cold War didn't end in 1989, but in 1991 with the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

As far as I'm concerned those are the only people in history who actually called themselves 'communist' and came to power - if you have an example of that utopian ideal that many leftists call 'real communism', please do share (interwar anarchist-ruled areas of Spain likely to be a candidate).
