Is it not father land, although the land is feminine?
Sorry about that, I am trying to learn Polish.

Yes, but the thing is, Poles usually call Polska their motherland, like the Russians. Fatherland is used by Germans, Austrians etc...

Ojczyzna literally means Fatherland (from "ojciec"), but it is grammatically in the feminine gender. Notwithstanding, it still means the land of the fathers...

It is the culture of consumerism.Mass production cannot respect local values because it is counterproductive to adapt to each unique country special needs.So they have to make products that appeal to everyone around the globe to reduce the cost.

Poland is far better today than it ever has been. It seems to me wrong or not that all countries of this size need to produce as much as they can at home cost effectively. Are imports really that cheap? Big picture!

I think when Poland was an Empire and built Krakow, it was far better, rather than your statement?

You can not compare this time in the world with more recent . A whole new set of variables brought on by man and industrialization as well as war

I am not trying to star an argument with you just for a laugh but

You made the comparison not me. I thought it might have been a mistake? and it would be better to say in recent history but just not "ever".

Americans do not hate Poland. Most Americans do not know where Poland is. Most Americans do not know where the United States of America is. Americans are ignorant buffoons...fat..bad dressers..zero style..zero manners..intrusive..humorless..and stupidly arrogant. Arrogant without a good reason. The United States is ripe for collapse. Poland has always been a much better palce to live than the United States if only be the virtue of their common religious belief. Americans believe in nothing but TV, beer, and Wrestling. Where I live, I dare you to find one thin girl among twenty. That is 1:20 ratio of skinny to fat girls. 95% of US citizens are fat...or will be.

thats an interesting thought. can we take it a step further and ask if we should all start producing individually as much as we can at home?

are you anywhere near self sufficiency out in your yard?

This isn't my view of the world. It is my view of the United States. At least, it is my view of the southern USA..AND..of the Americans I met in Poland.

Dupek seems to be a very appropriate name for you. Are you named after your father?
