Na co Polska może być jeszcze potrzebna?

Monday, October 10, 2011
1. Na co Polska może być jeszcze potrzebna? Jaki jest/może być sens polskości (Polski) dla Polaków, jaki dla tutejszych, jaki dla sąsiadów, dla innych (dla naszego regionu, dla Europy, dla świata)? Józef Piłsudski powiedział, że Polska jest skazana na wielkość. Wątpię aby potrafił to wytłumaczyć, czy rozumiał co mówił, ze względu na jego poważne luki edukacyjne, on raczej wyczuwał pewne rzeczy intuicyjnie. Ale miał rację. Chodzi o to, że Polska będzie albo wielka i zatriumfuje, albo skundlona i powoli zwiędnie. Nie ma innej opcji. >>more...

Post-Soviet Domestic and Foreign Challenges

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Having been excluded for decades from the rewards of worldly advancement, our friends [in the post-Soviet Bloc] had failed to cultivate those arts - hypocrisy, treachery, and Realpolitik - without which it is impossible to stay in government. They sat in their offices for a while, pityingly observed by their staff of former secret policemen, while affable and much traveled rivals, of the kind with whom German Social Democrats and French Gaullists could both "do business", carefully groomed themselves for the next elections. Not since 1945 had so many records of communist party membership disappeared, or so many dissident biographies been invented. Within two years the real dissidents had returned to their studies, while the world outside was racing on, led by a new political class that had learned to add a record of outspoken dissidence to all its other dissimulations. We were witnessing what [Czechoslovak Communist Alexander] Dubcek had promised, socialism with a human face. The most urgent preoccupation of this new political class was to climb on to the European Union gravy train, which promised rewards of a kind that had been enjoyed in previous years only by the inner circle of the secret police.

To Succeed the "Sovereign" Successor

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
It is official. The current Russian President has announced that the former Muscovite head of state will soon be elected President once again. In other words, Vladimir Putin has been tapped by Dmitry Medvedev to succeed the successor. A rotation in office will occur. This will be blessed, of course, by a free presidential election.  Naturally, the Putin-Medvedev duo has paid lip service to democracy, or, in their instance, "sovereign democracy" (суверенная демократия). The latter is a vast improvement on Communist democracy, which was as different from parliamentary democracy as a regular chair from an electric chair, to invoke an old Soviet-era joke. >>more...

Koniec Euro w 2011 roku?

Friday, September 30, 2011
Koniec euro w 2011 roku jest obecnie wspominany w dyskusjach ekonomistów w związku z kryzysem w Europie, gdzie waluta ta kontrolowana przez Centralny Bank Niemiec ma niby reprezentować wszystkie gospodarki unii monetarnej bez jednoczesnej władzy centralnej nad gospodarką każdego państwa członkowskiego. Sama inicjatywa stworzenia waluty euro miała dać Niemcom silną pozycję w gospodarce światowej. >>more...

Poland 1914-1931

Friday, September 30, 2011
The author begins with the situation facing the three parts of Partitioned Poland. He cites British Prime Minister Asquith (afterwards Earl of Oxford and Asquith). The Briton recounted the brutalities of the Prussians against the local Poles. Step-by-step, the Poles were not allowed to use the Polish language--eventually the children had to pray only in German. In 1902, more than half the Polish schoolchildren went on a strike that lasted nearly a whole year. Many of them were savagely beaten, and their parents faced arrest and imprisonment. (p. 69). >>more...

The Polish Question, Jewish Beneficiaries of Polish Losses, Encyclopedic Detail on the Polish anti-Prussian Economic Moves, etc

Friday, September 30, 2011
The author is not sympathetic to Poles. He repeatedly regards them (and cites those who agree with him), as too emotional and quarrelsome a people to acquire or keep a state.

Butler alludes to the Litvaks, and the tsarist Russian policies designed to exacerbate Jewish-gentile conflicts, as follows: "The problem of the Jew in countries like Russia and Poland cannot be stated in terms of Western Europe. It is conditioned, not primarily by religious feeling, but by economic conditions...The official Russian policy in recent years of concentrating the Jews in the Western provinces led to a large influx of Russian Jews into Poland (general called `Lithuanian Jews' [Litvaks] though they do not for the most part come from Lithuania), who compete with the original Polish Jews, and have markedly lowered the standard of living...They held, and hold, four-fifths of the trade of the country in their hands, and control a large proportion--how large is not easy from the available statistics to determine--of the capital invested in Polish industry." (pp. 124-125). >>more...
