It is rather though-provoking isn't it? Glad to be of service.
Your video was also - ahem - interesting. But I think you got the wrong end of the stick. If you watch it to the end you can see what it was all
about. The parliament had just installed Windows. They wanted Macs.
Anyway, looking forward to people's reactions.

That's an interesting angle. I too know the territory very well.
What you say relates to an innate apathy as regards what we would call entrepreneurial dynamism and political engagement. I agree these attitudes are
deep-seated. However since the fall of communism many people - particularly in the cities - have also, by necessity, learned how to supplement their
(paltry) income by a bit of wheeling and dealing here & there. And the 'Orange Revolution' showed that with respect to political interest and even
involvement, these days there is more beneath the surface than meets the eye.
And I can explicitly say - without a shadow of doubt - that when it comes to survival, these people are past masters.
(Please don't tempt me - I'd have to write a book to give anything like a fitting summary!)
