Commenting article: Communists vs Anti-Communists: Is Bulgaria Still Divided?

As Bulgaria’s presidential candidates have been trading increasingly vicious blows bidding to become the next head of state on Sunday, an issue that long dominated the public debate has resurfaced: the division of “communists” and “anti-communists” in the public space.

To raise the issue twenty-seven years into democracy – an anniversary celebrated this week – seems strange for a country that has been an EU member since 2007 and became a NATO state three years earlier, having confirmed its Western orientation in the 1990s and not having seen a major political party deny it since then. What is more, most Bulgarians clearly prefer their country to remain in the EU and there has not been any widespread anti-Western movement even as the migrant crisis and Brexit called European unity into question.

So, Why Even Talk about It?

The communism is dead.. completely dead.. it is not present even in China... but some hedge funds pay to some NGO,s to parade his skeleton constantly.. in order to intentionally and deliberately divide our society.... so the food chains that control 90% of the food trade in Bulgaria do not pay taxes.. and they do not pay taxes.... I am not anti globalist.. I am a product of the global economy but I am pissed of that.

Communism in Bulgaria will finally be dead when the "ex-"Commies who lied and stole their way to political and financial power are where they belong - either in jail or in the ground. EVERYTHING they stole - be that money, power, influence, property or businesses - should be taken from them (and their families) and their citizenship immediately revoked. If they don't like it, "The Ceaușescu Alternative" is always available.
