On a governmental level, the allies kept Germany on a leash, a short one at times but most of the time a very long one. But yes, a leash is a leash. But with all things being so intertwined, I think no country was genuinely free then (and it isn't better today). But on a personal level freedom in West Germany was just about as good as it could get in most respects. As long as you didn't want to be a teacher or a postman while being a card-carrying communist...

I think in some respects Germany today is more restrictive than West Germany in the 1980s ...
The restrictions or dependencies are valid for more places than Germany, actually. Watered down reports, how cutely put, are booked by "reputation brokers" (I may coin that later ).
