    Jan Pospieszalski, a Polish reporter, has been rebellious again. Only recently was he thrown out of the public television and defended by numerous protests of his viewers, so he could go to Victor Orban - one of the most brutally attacked by Brussels politicians – to conduct an interview with him. He had decided to so as his Polish compatriots have little chance of finding out the truth about Hungarian leader - it is hardly possible due to the European narration concerning the situation in Hungary. But why exactly did Orban get into the European officials’ black books?

    There is something that links the incident of November 11th (2011 in Warsaw) and the EU crisis. The experiment with the elimination of nations, as subjects of Europe, is coming to an end. Such an experiment has been carried out by successive empires and revolutionary movements every now and again. Some people wish to have national aspirations eliminated thus making the nations control easier; others want to introduce their internationalist ideas – social  engineering – halted by the existence of strong nations. The Soviet Union was a combination of two ideas: Russian imperialism and communist internationalism. At the end the nationalistic imperialism won and it resulted in a conflict with communist China, where the imperial view at the world dominated as well.

    Professor Zdzisław Krasnodębski is a Polish sociologist and a philosopher. Although he is an academic at Bremen University, he stays abreast of the current situation in Poland. He publishes his articles and comments in both Polish and foreign press. He firmly talks on the issues of his native country and he is deeply concerned about his motherland. In this article not only he confirms this concern, but also makes a link between this text and his latest book called ‘The Biggest Miracle We Can Get’. By reminding the mission of John Paul II, he is appealed in it to his Polish compatriots in 2011 by saying - ‘The Spirit has already done his job. Now it is our turn’.

    In front of the office of the President of the Council of Ministers in a country that assumed the presidency of UE in protest against the government of that country a man sets fire to himself and he is not from the opposition of that government.

     

  • The door in one direction

    This, that the present authority in Poland does nothing doesn't mean at all that decisions fraught with consequences aren't made. They are made, but as if on their own, taking the path of least resistance. This is the case with the vaunted "reform of the pension system," that was a pompous name for the operation of "a creative accounting" kind, serving exclusively the current improvement of balance. This is the case with the acts "reforming the health service and a sale of drugs" that are the outcome of the same desperate need of improving the bills by the government for the use of the authorities from the European Union and also of their pressure of some concrete deals.
