By request: I lived in an actual police state. AMA about 80s Romania, bread lines, censorship, officially sanctioned atheism, etc. Fellow police state survivors, feel free to join it.
Possible topics of interest: education, health care, living in a cash-based, creditless society, religion in a communist dictatorship, the consequences of political dissidence, the black market, the consequences of criminalizing abortion and homosexuality. Ask away!
EDIT: Holy cow people, it's late and I have work tomorrow..I'm going to bed now, thanks for an evening of nostalgia. :) It's been fun.
