Reader feedback: Rampant

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.
