My parents lived through WW 2 in Europe. They lived in The Netherlands. They had many tales to tell about life under the NAZIs. Time is interesting. They were telling me the stories to me when I was ten or so, in 1965 or so. To me, it sounded like ancient history. To them, it was recent history; Gulf War One is that long ago now
My parents recollections about life under a repressive political system stay in my memory.
I learned about how Germany changed in the 1930s by reading and watching the History channel.
I can see the USA changiing, surely but slowly, and at an increasing pace. Kind of like boiling a frog.
I am curious, regarding at least domestic airline flights in Chile, or in other SA countries, is the airport security like it is in the US, or is it more like a free country, like we used to be long ago?
