Re: Teaching the next generation to cheat, Editorial, July 7-13, Vol 9, No 26

Cheating is rampant in Slovakia - in the bedrooms, classrooms, and boardrooms.

It is so easy for you foreigners to criticise the Slovak way of life. For us cheating was required, it came natural to us.

For example, you needed to be married to get an apartment but then you were too young to be in love, so you get a lover as well.

You went to a store, or to a doctor, and you had to bribe to get what you want, or someone else would bribe and get it before you.

Most Slovak believe that “we” should also include foreigners, although they are quick to point out that efforts to integrate should be undertaken mainly by the foreigners themselves.

What Slovaks shouldn’t forget when they dream of the perfect foreigner

Bratislava’s mayor is right that integration is a two-way street, but even the capital still has some way to go to see foreigners as residents rather than just visitors.
