First of all it's not
my opinion - so I'm not trying to make you believe it.
However, Jasienica was a prominent Polish historian so it would be wrong to make light of his works.
so why jeopardise that by referring to wealth?
It's not about wealth etc. but more about many sad and long lasting consequences of a single
political decision .
It makes me believe that history is more mysticism than science lol.
What we are missing depends on our position.
So it works like that:
The rich nations are missing spirit, the poors don't give a damn about that - all they need are just some greenbacks.
No away around it.
Poles, being just in the middle are missing both.
If you sided with Germany now you would be like Sorbs.
38 millions Sorbs sounds quite good to me LOL.
There was never any alliance as such.
point of view and definitely not mine.
Both Lithuanins and Ukrainians owe Polish Commonwealth their national existence.
Without it there would be no Lithuanians
at all today and the population of Ukraine[
would be a part of the happy Orthodox family under Moscow's rule.
Take it for granted.
Besides what don't you like about your mentality?
As a matter of fact I love my mentality both in personal and national aspects lol.
However ... I definitely prefer German life standards, reasonable politicians, good highways, luxury cars to our Polish life of misery and Ukrainian disaster.
With all due respect Mr but: Are you on crack?
With all due respect I'm clean.
