this is why I don't normally reply to comments. They start to drain emotionally, especially when you talk to bitter folks. "Seamlessly" transition. You know nothing... It wasn't seamless in the 1990s, it was absolutely rough in the 1990s while my dad was setting up his business. A lot of risks, sacrifice, outright poverty at times (both in the 1980s and 1990s). And you throw labels just like that? appartachik? seamlessly? etc. Why? But you don't need to answer.
