You're now watching two strangers discuss your question!
Question to discuss:
Stranger 2: hey
Stranger 1: It's good that the wall is not there anymore.
Stranger 1: And hi
Stranger 2: didn't it seperate two different political ideologies though?
Stranger 1: Yeah. But the families were seperated too and you couldn't see each other anymore.
Stranger 2: i mean it's amazing that it worked out in execution
Stranger 2: but in theory, seperating political ideologies isn't always a bad thing
Stranger 1: yeah, but still. I like how it is now.
Stranger 2: imagine if russia had had a wall to seperate the socialists from communists
Stranger 2: i'm mixing that up
Stranger 2: but you know what i'm getting at
Stranger 2: i don't live in germany, nor did i live during the time of the berlin wall, so really i don't know if it got any better with it being torn down
Stranger 2: it's speculation
Stranger 2: we need enemies in our history books though, and a wall is an excellent scapegoat
Stranger 1: I live in Germany and I think it was good, that the wall was torn down. DDR was terrible...I heard it from someone who lived during that time
Stranger 2: DDR?
Stranger 1: I doN't know the english word.
Stranger 2: try to explain it
Stranger 2: seperatism?
Stranger 1: It was East Germany.
Stranger 2: the berlin wall reminds me of american history quite a bit
Stranger 2: we had a civil war, about relevant issues, and most people said the difference was slavery
Stranger 2: when really it was about many many many issues, namely with our constitution
Stranger 1: ah okay, but there was no wall
Stranger 2: slavery/wall still very obvious scapegoats
Stranger 2: there were other problems that were going on at the time but, people are taught and still learn today mostly about the actual wall
Stranger 2: or just about slavery
Stranger 2: our president abraham lincoln had done many bad things, and was a politician thoroughly, he used slavery as a reason for people to back his cause, and many people blame the wall in berlin for the seperatism
Stranger 2: when there was obviously other things going on
Stranger 2: in both instances
Stranger 2: but all in all
Stranger 2: good thing for the wall to come down, and great thing for slavery to end
Stranger 1: Yeah, agreed.
Stranger 2: i just wish people didn't soak up the images so much
Stranger 2: that's all
Stranger 2: when there was much more to be learned about both things
Stranger 2: but american civil war, people just think about slavery
Stranger 2: the division between the east and west, the wall
Stranger 2: BUT ANYWAYS
Stranger 2: HOW R U
Stranger 2: ASL
Stranger 2: LETS CYBERSEX
Stranger 1: NO o.o
Stranger 2: joke
Stranger 1: xD
Stranger 2: modern germany is a little strange though isn't it?
Stranger 1: why do you think so?
Stranger 2: little things, like the censoring that goes on
Stranger 2: video games for instance, and movies
Stranger 1: Uh yeah..that's stupid. Sometime they censor things that are totally unnecessary and harmless..
