Metro and oppression

Jonas Jürgens, Thunderbolt writes:
For many, living in the USSR in its most oppressive days wasn’t the most pleasant experience. The state bureaucracy made changes slow and cumbersome. Unless, of course, you had connections in the party – directly or indirectly – in which case you could pull a few strings to make things go a bit faster. And if stepped out of line, dared to criticize corruption or unfairness in the system, you’d probably end up in jail - or with a bullet in the back of your head. Amongst all this, the individual can seem tiny. A dot in front a huge, monolithic state. (Metro 2033, Metro 2033: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
