That Austria is a free country is a matter of opinion. History tells us that since 1955 the country was set free from its Nazi past, but what about the people? Party politics plays a major role even until today. An atmosphere of mild political terrorism is still here. For example, be it a judge, policeman, or head teacher, you need to have the correct party book. Some is also applied to the media, which gets a lot of money from the state depending on if it follows the government line, as is the case here. The Social Democratic government, which holds the balance, especially mainly in the capital, follows a mild form of Commmunism which includes putting up statues to celebrate figures of renowned terrorists like Che Guevera and friends, renaming street and roads with a socialist background, etc. Austria is not what it appears to the world: it is a land of deceit, corruption, and lies.
