What disloyalty ?
I am not calling all Wilenszczyzna people to be loyal to Lithuanian state. This is exactly for them to decide to whom they should be loyal. But nothing stops me to see to whom they a r eloyal to draw my own conclusions, for example considering is it safe for Lithuania go Quebec.
Your state is corrupted with legislation which is giving free hand to intelligence and special forces to spy on its own citizen.
You talk about loyalty - I ask you once more Why Poles in Wilenszczyzna should be loyal to you????
Loyalty you talk about is blind loyalty - thing from the past, in style of the totalitarian regimes like Russia or Germany.
Oh, is it? Do Poles not expect Polish citizens be loyal to the state?
You are not empire you have no hope of being independent country in this part of Europe without allies!
You should focus on your friends not looking for enemies, and Poland can easily be your best friend and than subject of "disloyal" citizen would have been very academic question.
I am not a politician but I think we have been striving ages for such a cooperation.
You still linger in the past in nationalism of he 1930s - and you are not aware of it (if you are honest).
You should change your attitude for your own good.
I know what you mean and probably here you are right as always. Does nationalism in your view apply only to Lithuanians in such a cases?
I want you to consider this:
I don't see anything wrong with these celebrations, because I understand why they doing this. By the way, what 'soldiers' are at the centre of the picture? Lithuanians or Russians?
As for others minority in Wileszczyzna I know that there also minorities in the rest of Lithuania - but we discussing main issue not a side onces!
Once I asked a Polish lady in Pabradė when she said that there a lot of Belorussian people there how you make a difference who is Polish who is Belorussian. We(they) are all the same, that what she said.
As for language is often secondary to nationality or self assessment, as Irish or American speak English, yet there not English in the self identification sense.
The only similarity I perceive is that Poland's very good treatments of minorities German and Lithuanian is not mutual in each of the said country's!
It's unfairness of that situation I compare not country's - it should be tit for tat!
Recently I visited Punks I felt very bad for Lithuania being afraid of Polish names being written in Polish manner or that street sign question. Stupid really! By the way Lithuania finances its own secondary education system, no matter the language of instruction. If I am not mistaken, I have read somewhere that it gives 1,24 to minority schools of that it gives to Lithuanian ones. Poland thinks it is too little, because minority education come at a price.
I could challenge that claim easily but I don't want to !
You have already sleepless nights:)
Just a tip - Constitution!
I sleep well, not just from the fact that I do not consider Poland as a foe!
Cheers! You sleep well too!
