Romanian retailer Emag used a communist intelectual called Mihai Sora on their last ad. In this ad, Mihai Sora portrays himself as a hero of the ...anti communist fight. Which is a total fake, since he was a commie himself.
The lady on customer line had no idea about what I was talking, and I ve send the book to the company which realised the ad :D
This are the people dirty Nazi love! Hope you burn to death!
"These words, which I speak to you today, have them in your heart and in your soul ... Write on the doors of your house and on your gates." The rabbis use a parchment sheet and filaments (talisman with bible verses) to assist memory, that is, the identity tissue of the personality. You are what you remember about yourself.
As for me, I carry in my soul the image of a childhood that is hard to understand for the youngest. I survived a whole decade without television, without telephone, without newspapers and without Internet. Everyday life flowed down the valleys, like a miserable, gray, foul-smelling water. We were shaken by the lie and oppressed by the communist aesthetics of the "new cities."
How did I combat boredom? Through sports and reading. Almost every home had shelves lined with cheap volumes from the "Library for All" collection. It was impossible not to catch the taste of reading in a childhood without the Internet. When we escaped the agricultural chorus, we devoured in the coolness of an old house the novels of Alexandre Dumas, Jules Vernes or Marin Preda.
Healthy competition between cousins kept us in the grip. In one day, I went through 350 pages of "The Jderi Brothers." Sadoveanu caught me far less than Gogol's prose or Dostoevsky's writing.
In communism, the works of the past were our only escape. Why? Because the present looked dark and precarious. To look beyond the present time, we sat on the shoulders of the elders. And so we started to see better."
