How so?  If you are a Stalinist, it would clearly be the former.  If not, it would clearly be the latter.

You scare me.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Can't You see that this very posture of yours was what transformed something that should emancipate workers into something that oppressed them even more?

not so simple - a NATO-bound East Germany would have been both a symbolic and strategic disaster.

"Supporting the protesters" would require the protests to have had definable recognized aims, which was not the case.
Joining the protests. That's something else. That's something I presumably would have done.
