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

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.

Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time.

"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.
