Under the Carpet
Some of us have a Soviet carpet, and some of us have a Soviet past that they can't let go of. There is no need to say that we all come from there. We can't choose our place of birth, but we can choose our future.
There is no need to cherish and wrap yourself in the Soviet past - imagining yourself a Roman knight in a toga! Because in reality, this is old rags that should be left in the past.......
This also applies to music/movies/etc.
