Thanks for the comments while I was away; it’s pleasing that you don’t begrudge me a well-earned break.
I went to Prague, a beautiful city that has escaped the grip of an oppressive regime. Interestingly, and ironically, the museum of Communism is located next to a McDonalds, inside a casino. It tells the story of how enemies were vilified by relentless propaganda and of people forced to work in factories while they were under constant surveillance.
I switched on the call monitoring software and thanked goodness that there was no turning back.
