Saying Table Needed Mending. Far Earlier. You Sometimes Forget How Much Czechs Suffered under Communist Control. Klima, Followed, Had Breath tests. Lost Control of his Car. Interviewed Many Times. Had Problems getting Work. If i was in CZ, at this Time. Feel I would have been in Constant Peril. Would Not be able to have Kept Quiet. Very Good Klima Essay about how Life was in Exile. Plus the One. About how We are Killing Everything Off in Nature. We are a Greedy Insular Society. Saying it will End in War, or Plague. We Will have to Return to Basics.
