The Berlin Wall and the Stassi

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

I suggest that a good way to commemorate this would be to watch the 2006 movie The Lives of Others.  It is not directly about the wall, but about life in East Germany under the Stassi, the Communist successors to the Nazi SS.

It is a quiet, yet powerful, film.  The following clip, I think, gives a sense of this.  What is a good man?  Can we choose at least to become better men and women?
