A very ugly, disturbing look at the direction that the world is heading. And this story is absolutely not about covid.

The story may or may not be entirely true. But they want you to think it is anyway.
Saying that most people they worked with hate, despise them, would most certainly be false.
Alot if people are dumb but the majority don't think that way.

My son lives in Eastern Europe. For the most part, the government is trying to lock people down, but most are simply ignoring the nonsense and seem to have more freedoms than we do here.

that's good to hear. I think that there is a wide range to the political spectrum in what is considered Eastern Europe.
Most, if not all seem to be run by a political strongman. Some give a lot of freedom to the people and some are trying to bring back cold war authoritarianism.

I think Slovakia where my son lives is a bit different than Lithuania. Slovakia is considered to be Eastern Europe but politically are closer to Western Europe than most of the old Soviet states. Even though Slovakia is a former Soviet state are traditionally more aligned with the west and hate the old Soviet mentality.

Many from the Eastern block/European countries make their way to the western side of Europe to free themselves of the oppressions by their localized governments.

The UK is riddled with Eastern European's and up until Brexit, they literally had free entry into the country under the European laws that we fell under.
Now we've distanced ourselves from the EU (Post Brexit) and their laws it's now harder for them to gain entry.

A lot of nasty business and corruption still occurs in those countries, unfortunately.

I'd venture to say corruption is endemic to many countries. It's usually just a matter of who you are paying to and who comes to collect if you don't pay your share. It's growing here and I'd believe in western Europe as well. Hand in hand with rising authoritarianism.
I've had a chance to work with a number of Eastern Europeans. Many very hard workers, some definitely not. Like any other group. I had a couple of friends with small businesses who experienced frustration with eastern Europeans. According to them, most would come in looking for work but only off the books. Maybe holding over from underground economies fostered by socialism?
