Three weeks ago, when the Nobel committee offered the literature prize for the Romanian origin Herta Muller, the writer was prized for the daily notes on the Communist Romanian life. What they did not mention, however, was the critique of the writer to the Post-Communist governants. Through the refusal to confront its past, the Eastern European country left itself prey to doubts, Los Angeles Times analyst Gregory Rodriguez commented.
20 years after the Revolution, Muller declared that over 40% of the those in power in Romania nowadays are actually former Communist security structures officers. In Romania, they pretend that the past evaporated, Herta Muller wrote two years ago. However, realities come to confirm Muller's opinions, Rodriguez reads.
Romania reconfigured the old power structure instead of designing a new one.
