After 50 years of comunism people in Eastern Europe started talking about "homo sovieticus" - a subtype of human with brain washed off common sense. Some even say a socialist is the lost link between ape and human...
After all those years people lost their freedom and could not think on their own. There is always the state that would take away their money but provide health care when their ill, pension when old, benefits when unemployed, will educate their children, will decide what to teach their children, when their will go to school and for how long, when and if vaccinate them, etc
Homo sovieticus spread unfortunatelly to the whole Europe and I would say the whole "civilisation of a white man". Our civilisation used to rule almost the whole world. We conquered both Americas, Africa, Australia, and most of Asia. Why are we now conquerred by other? We lost own principles. In my opinion the most important was latin "volenti non fit injuria". To a willing person, no injury is done. Every man is architect of his own future.
After all this intro... I am sick of people happy with their variation being handled in 3 days! You are the best examples of Homo Eorpaeus. Dont you question the system? Why on earth we need that? Why we need firearm certificates? I know this is the world we live in... But I feel almost phisical pain filling all these forms and being forced to do that. Dont you?
