Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What I meant is that 1989/90 was our year zero in freedom and democracy, not a return, and the past what many of our right-wingers were either whitewashing or yearning to return to was rather ugly in many ways. Hence, this immature sense of freedom is not the consequence of 'communism', but of an almost unbroken sequence of various dictatures or oligarchies or rigged/limited democracies for thousands of years.
