    I was in high school the day the wall came down. To this day it is a
    reminder that we all need to work against government oppression,
    particularly the scourge of communism upon the world. I grew up in the
    twilight of the cold war, we lived in fear of nuclear annihilation daily,
    it was awful.

    The guy at 2:57 seems to have pitched the idea for “Goodbye Lenin”.

    This is rare. Usually leftist ideas built on a equity utopia work well.
    Especially in the past 100 years.

    The last time I have ever felt the world truly came together as one and had
    hope for the moment and future

    I was stationed in Korea when this came through on the news. I really
    didn’t believe it at all at first, but after watching the bigshot talking
    heads reporting from Berlin about the wall coming down, well,…

    Watching the twentieth century has been amazing, lot of countries going for
    independence, two world wars, technology taking a big leap, space travel,
    the rebirth of the olympic games, the birth of sporting events, flight, the
    rise and fall of the Berlin wall, civil rights, unification of races, etc,
    etc.

    Man has the power to do a lot.

    I was six years old when it happened…I barely remember it but enjoyed
    watching abc news with Mr Jennings. it marked a new era for Germany and
    predated the end of communism for Russia and the end of a Cold War.

    in comunism people had security, jobs, housing and stable families,
    healthcare and education. It was not as bad as many people think. for my
    parents generation it was the happier times. the west system could not
    offer older people anything better

    I was born in late ’89, and I can vaguely remember seeing commercials about
    “believing” in yourself and it showed people hammering on the wall,
    standing on it, singing, and giving the peace sign, and saying that
    anything was possible, as well as news stories about Germany deciding her
    own future in the months and years following the wall’s fall.

    The Berlin Wall coming down, the unification of Germany, and the “end” of
    the USSR was probably one of the biggest events in my life and for the
    whole world.

    I’m not a leftist, but I miss the wall. America was not so arrogant,
    violent, coward (false flag operations against skyscrapers and planes in
    the u.s. and Ukraine, less yankee wars, less yankee genocides, less
    pro-yankee puppets, less pro-yankee dictatorships, etc.) Communism fell,
    the Warsaw pact doesn’t exist anymore, but that stinky artificial country
    founded by cowboys, prostitutes and jewish slave owners is still polluting
    the world air through NATO baby-killing human failures and a corporate
    zionist banking system… So much for a “free world”…

    My only complaint is that the Germans chose to do this on the anniversary
    of Kristallnacht.

    I was in grade 7 and in social studies class on Noverber 7th we began
    covering the Berlin Wall in out text books. I remember all of us thinking
    of how stupid it was and we never even believed that it would go down any
    time soon, only to have this major event happen days later.

    and now we’re slowly going back to these dark times because the voices keep
    telling us our system of some-what-free markets “failed” by their
    definition. The solution? More of their failed policies of central
    planning.
