1. Not enough cash.
We are fukin poor. We are doing anything anywhere, for many young people is much better to do anything in the UK instead of hard working in Poland. And they are right.
You are absolutely richer than Somalia, Ethiopia; your GDP per head is double more than China. It is insensible to compare yourselves now with West Western Europe (which is about 30 years economically advanced). By continuing lamenting for the next 30 years, you guarantee yourselves a lifetime of misery.
Nobody cares about Poland, how if our president doesn't speak English (and his wife does)?
Also - we have no ambassadors in over 20 countries (and I'm not talking about Africa, jungle or Mars, there are no polish ambassadors in Athens, Seul etc. including 2 countries i EU and 2 another from NATO + much much more).
How on earth the world deign to care upon you if you can so callously dismiss the poor and the unlucky while salivating after the opposite?
It is an eternal curse for Poles to put yourselves into a hierarchy!
You are right this one. Some (or most) Poles must get rid of xenophobia, either in the form of malicious envy towards richer countries, or in the form of racist disdain towards the poorer. But this applies to all countries and all humans too.
THIS COUNTRY IS JUST BORING.
This is both a pathetic and an enlightening statement. The life of the poor is always boring. If you are rich, the path to excitement is almost limitless: The excitement of material possessions (car, yatch, sea, roads...), The excitement of connection (social network, personalities, good-looking companions...) and the excitement of culture (learning, art, great music...). With the exception of being incurably stupid 'or' idealistic' (you know I would like to link two of them together since the rich education is now so perfect, the chance for the former only is almost impossible), the life of the rich (and rich countries) are assured to be rosy as long as they live.
As you all know, things are completely contrary to the humbler part of mankind. The lacking of everything the rich enjoy above contributes to the poor's life 'the vicious circle of Boredom'. There is no horrible an inequality between two different kinds of humans than when one have plenty of enjoyment but find no time for all
of them and the other either having no time for any enjoyment (because they have to work their balls so hard) or worst of all, they have plenty of freetime but are materially and culturally denied access to enjoyment. In Asia or Africa, at least the tie in family and clan lessens this boredom, but in the individualist Europe (particularly Eastern Europe), the dull solitude of the poor is absolute and excruciating.
I think there are three cures for this dreadful dullness (and depression). First is to break away from the effect of consumerism, which equates possession with happiness and excitement. This false ideology thinks that it can push up productivity but actually it only helps to shore up human greed and thus endless mechanical competition between humans (for endlessly produced mechanical goods). In the end, It will always condemn a significant portion of humankind to frustration and unhappiness.
The second cure is music and sport. The right music and the right sport guarantee in ourselves the wholesomeness of our spirit and our body. Both (especially music) offer the exhilaration that is normally beyond our means. Contrary to popular myth, music is easy to learn and easier to listen if one can appreciate that the reward is tremendous (The idea of great music to be extremely relevant today will be elaborated in an article soon). Meanwhile, Some of the most healthy sports out there are simple accessible beyond description (like running or even football)! If the boring poor want to improve their lot (physically, spiritually and even economically), there is no simpler and nobler way to do than to take on music and sport.
The third cure is to rediscover and affirm your universal, national and unique identity. "How?" is the question each of us has to find the answer by ourselves. I just hope it would be as soon as possible.
