Sixty-one percent of Romanians want Communism

Sunday, October 24, 2010

The Romanian market research company CSOP and the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of Romanian Exiles conducted a poll in recent months that discovered that 61 percent of Romanians consider communism to be a good idea at present. This is an increase from 53 percent four years ago. Half of the respondents said life was better in their country before 1989.

Only 27 percent of those interviewed said communism was a bad idea, which is a decrease from 34 percent four years ago. Fourteen percent of respondents felt that communism is a good idea that was applied well in Romania, while 47 percent felt it is a good idea that was applied poorly in Romania.

The main reasons people said life was better under the previous system were that everyone was employed, the living standards were decent, and housing was guaranteed. These numbers are indicative of growing class consciousness as capitalism fails to meet the needs of Romanian workers.

Its really terrible a chara.  People who are working get less than 100 euro a month - even though petrol and supermarket prices are the same as here.  Those who have no job get even less.  Of course, there is a criminal elite who drive around in Porsche jeeps and live in mansions.  You never saw so many Porsche jeeps as in Romania.
