Summary of Interview 090604B with Tömör
In the beginning of the interview he talked about the democratic movement. Thanks to democracy the right to own property was obtained and the foreign relations became free. These are the good sides of it but everything became too loose and incoherent, he concludes. He mentioned about the people in authority during socialism and the changes in the relations between the dargas and the workers. He compared the socialist and present day dargas. The dargas of the socialist period gave assignments and always checked their fulfilment and today there’s almost no assessment of work responsibility.
He mentioned that in the socialist period the Mongolians had fraternal relations with the Russians but they feared the Chinese and they didn’t have close relations with them. Average Mongolians had little chance to visit foreign countries other than being invited by their children who studied abroad.
At the end he compared the development of Ulaanbaatar with Korean cities. He briefly talked about the family life in the socialist period and the state's family policy, and the changes in funeral rituals.
