This wasn't a hard conclusion to reach, but I determined it nonetheless: I don't think I would have enjoyed living in Moscow at the height of the U.S.S.R. Mostly because everyone ratted on everyone else. It would have been exhausting determining who to trust. That being said, just to fit in, I would have informed on my neighbor's dog if it barked too much, or if it got better rations than I did. Or, if it got me higher in the Party. Or, if I were bored. I guess it would be pretty easy to be an informant. Just make something up on anyone and watch the fun happen.
