Romania’s national character is suspicious and mean-spirited toward itself

“One of the things that is readily apparent about Romanian social and political life is the degree to which Romanians see their history and their destiny as largely the result of powerful and not always apparent external forces that sweep over them. There also is a tendency to particularize this, so that they perceive individual situations in much the same way.”
