Olvidé que sos suficientemente viejo recordar La época de la Guerra Fría. ¿Has tendido problemas durante la época comunista?
Not really. When you are young you have problems with your excessive libido rather than politcs. .
It wasn't that bad in Poland. Most of us (I mean Polish society) didn't give a f... about the communist government. I think we were an exception in the funny "Communist Circus", which later resulted in Solidarity and so on. You never took seriously what the official propaganda claimed. Well, in school I was tought marxism and leninism and atheism and all this shit, but at home I would listen to the BBC and Free Europe Radio and talk freely with my parents about the real and true history of my country waiting for the USRR to collapse. And it did, (with my country's modest contribution).
Pero esto es ya agua pasada. Todo se terminó y pasó y nunca regresara. Sea como sea, es una historia muy larga y complicada y no se la puede explicar en unas frases.
