So it is possible for an individual to become rich under socialism... as long as the economy agrees with them
All these peoples who were waiting in front of the chops and super-markets ( if we can call them super-markets ! ) in Moscow and everywhere in all communists nations, what they were doing there then ?
All the chops and communists " super-markets " were EMPTY !!! No food, no cloths, no wealth, NOTHING !!!
Your so-called amnesia is a shame !!!
Do you remember all these peoples, how they were happy, how they were crying when the Shame-Wall felt ?
Do you remember these East-Germans who tryed to come to the West with a train, when Hungaria told them that they were free to go West by Austria ?
Your avatar & your statements are an insult to them. An insult to those who had to die & suffer ( and still right now ) with the communism.
You are not a real democrat.
