Roma must also stick to the rules
Novinar - Bulgaria

Roma must also stick to the rules

The Bulgarian authorities started tearing down houses illegally built by Roma families in the central Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora on Monday, amid clashes between residents and the police. The daily Novinar has no pity for the now homeless Roma: "In every democratic country there are rights and rules, and they hold for everyone. It simply doesn't work for one part of the population to live according to its own rules while enjoying the same rights as everyone else - if not more. For example the right to live in illegal housing, which other Bulgarians are not allowed to do. ... Or to not pay their bills when everyone else does. ... In a nutshell, to live like in the joke: 'Democracy is when the Bulgarians work and pay, while the Roma live on welfare and get everything for free. And racism is when the Bulgarians don't want to put up with that any more." (21/07/2014)


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

RE: Roma must also stick to the rules
In all honesty, for a moment I thought it was an article about A.S. Roma, the football club.
Automatic thought: "why would Phlegethon care about football, oh, it's those «Roma»".

RE: Roma must also stick to the rules
We have our own Roma Aeterna, just without colloseum, Tiber, Vatican but with dirt, feces and rampant crime. And it seems we invest similar sums to preserve this "culture".

I, on the other hand, prefer a scenario similar to the one described in the Richard Bachman (Stephen King) novel "Thinner". ;)
