Re: A generation lost to the market economy in Bulgaria
That article is DISGUSTINGLY MANIPULATIVE - as most of the figures quoted! - and full of DAMNED LIES!
What makes me especially mad is that repeated assertion that there is consensus re market economy and - N-A-T-O!!!!!
If the majority of people are asked about market economy, they will not know what you are talking about. "Market economy" is an abstract term that speaks nothing to them. But if you ask if they like their present life better that the life before 1989, it is quite another thing: they will answer without any hesitation – NO! The PAID author has pointed "more than 60 %" are nostalgic for the “communist era”. What does “more than 60% mean?” - 70? 80?
NOTE THE CONTRADICTION between the assertion for “consensus re the market economy” – and the nostalgia for the past figure of “more than 60 %”!!!!!!!
THERE IS NO CONSENSUS RE NATO!
There is such consensus ONLY among the so-called political parties!
But how much percent of the PEOPLE are the DAMNED political parties?
80 % of the people are AGAINST NATO! They want referendum but it is not allowed because, as one of the DAMNED politicians put it, the result will be a BIG GREAT "NO"!!!!!!!
All the so-called Agencies for sociological public opinion researches are PAID to publish MANIPULATIVE data and blatantly to manipulate people here and abroad!
That article is SHAMELESSLY manipulative - besides some figures that seem acceptable the HIGHLY PAID author distributes a DAMNED heap of lies! Look at the consensus thing! Look at that excerpt:
"Among the changes the transition has brought, freedom to travel
is most appreciated, with 70 percent pleased with the change, the
poll said. It is followed by the end of food shortages (65 percent),
the right to do business freely (66 percent), free elections (58
percent) and the restitution of farmlands (14
Note the CONTRADICTION with the figures quoted above it!!! But let's
look more closely at it.
I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry! Freedom of travel – BIG SHAKES!
Who travels? Could the hungry travel? Could the unemployed travel? Could
the ill travel? Could the beggars travel? Who travels? Only the government
and party people - with the taxpayers’ money – our tortured money! Only
the economical MAFIA people – with the sweat money squeezed out of the
slaves working for them for next to nothing - and with the money stolen
from all of us through the neoliberal so-called privatization. Look at
the figure and compare it with the other figures quoted in the article
– doesn’t the comparison results
end of food shortages -
Besides the years after the WWII at the end of the forties there was
ONLY ONE YEAR OF FOOD SHORTAGES, and it was 1991! Why? Because the future
businessmen from the Bulgarian Communist Party nomenclature - who SOLD
Bulgaria to the US in 1989 and 1990! - hid the food in anticipation of
the coming "price liberation". They bought huge quantities of food products
at the low prices of the "totalitarian regime" - and then sold them at
the New High "Liberated" prices! In this way they
the right to do business freely
Which is the date of that "research"? Because it might have been so
in the first 4-5 years of the Great Neoliberal Liberation - it means till
about 1995. Now it is impossible to get such figures. The people in their
majority have already understood that the "free business" is ONLY one more
of THEIR MANTRAS! "Free" successful business can do only the politicians
and those near and close to them - THE POLITICAL-ECONOMICAL MAFIA OF US
SERVANTS THAT IS KILLING
free elections - 66 %
How is it possible that 66 % rejoice at the so-called "free elections" - and the participants in those" free elections" to be regularly under 50 % for the last several years? Last autumn the current Bulgarian President was elected f.i. with only about 40 % participants in the Presidential elections from all the people with right to take part in elections! Make the conclusion for yourselves!
the restitution of farmlands - 14 %
That figure seems acceptable.
You see quite well THEIR system of manipulation: get out some truths to catch the attention - and then pour out buckets of DIRTY MANIPULATIVE LIES!
One should be very suspicious to the official news from the US\EC protectorate Bulgaria.
As it is already very well known, THEY – THE GLOBO MASTERS - LOVE LIES!
And demand THE SAME from THEIR servants.
