The second part of the article that we take it from www.romania-insider.com Spirituality goes deeper than you imagine   A lot of Romanians are religious people; some go to the church often, others keep spirituality at the core without necessarily making a thing out of it. The higher the level of education, the more silent spirituality is – but it definitely is somewhere there, inside. This spirituality also includes believing in signs and omens.

The US need Romanians?         In our view, the United States need Romania only if they are interested in a reliable European partner with considerable ethnic potential, who knows what loyalty is and respects its commitments. The Geographical position (geopolitical) did often make Romania suffer. In tomorrow’s world, conditions seem to appear for Romania to benefit of her position.              Nota bene! We do not want to be an outpost of America in the Russian coast! If we want good relations with the U.S. it is because we hope, even rely, in the near future, on a sincere Russian-American cooperation, designed to remove and correct the abominable consequences of the history the last century! Namely, the consequences of the two world wars, and of the revolution of 1917.

This is an article which we take it from www.romania-insider.com because it helps us to promote Romania better. There are some patterns many Romanians tend to follow, and some of them may come as surprising for foreigners. There are exceptions from the examples below, of course, and the generalization is simply to highlight the extremes one may be faced with while dealing with Romanians. Family is at the core of everything; family needs support, and offers support.   Even if many Romanians do not openly admit it, and even if they have borrowed a lot from the Western ways of thinking and acting, most Romanians are very much connected to their families. They will call close family and relatives often, sometimes on a daily basis, and in many cases young Romanians take care of their elderly, supplementing their low income. It runs both ways, with a lot of youngsters getting support from their families until an old age – either by living home with parents, or by receiving packages with food, if parents live in the countryside, and children in the city.

What issues would have the Romanians to solve? What would the Americans gain if they helped the Romanians? Romania’s economic problem is re-industrialization. The U.S. aid could be decisive, provided it is managed by the right people, both Americans and Romanians. Identifying the valid partners is not easy, but not impossible (either) if you do serious recruitment and selection of the professionals. Involving civil society in Romania is one of the keys to success. As long as the political class continues to be outside the national interest, it should be avoided in the economical relations, in the common economical projects that will have an American component of support. A good collaboration can be established between Romanians and Americans in the IT&C field. There are already premises spontaneously created without any ad-hoc project. Things can get a tremendous development in a larger project to include all the components of such Romanian-American cooperation in the global market. The interest is mutual; it would not assume an attitude of goodwill from the U.S., but strict understanding of interest! Romanians have proved to be the most interesting partners in Europe in this field. Americans might have much more to gain than Romanians! So much the better!

How did the Americans disappoint us? Today we know that the entire anti-communist dissident movement from socialist countries was organized and maintained by the KGB! The only anti-communist opposition and anti-Soviet was in Romania! But the White House did not realize that at the time.  They gave more credit to Lech Walesa and Vaclav Havel’s than to Nicolae Ceausescu … Not until 1990 did they discover that Lech Valesa and „Solidarity” union were inventions of the KGB … Just like Vaclav Havel, another KGB agent! Only recently did America realize that Nicolae Ceausescu was a „real” anti-Soviet and, so, essentially an anti-Bolshevik …
