I never did. But forcing your way on others as to what it means to be a patriot or not is rude. There are as many patriots as there are people.
How was I forcing anything? Dearest Miranda, if you like to be blind, let it be so. I was trying to state my opinion. If it didn't do anything, I shall move on.
fair enough, it should not be forgotten, but living in the present is more valuable and it doesn;t mean that you have.
kepp living in the past and let me know how it works for you.
How so? Everything today is driven by history. It works fine, thank you. How can you sleep at night by trying to forget what happened in history? To your forefathers? To YOUR blood? Someone would have to give me a solid hit to the head with a sledgehammer for me to forget these struggles! I hope you were not serious with your sarcasm, for everyone needs comfort in history. If we live only for today, and do not remember what happened yesterday, what will happen tomorrow?
no, calling Ukrainin barbarians is not hatered.
Again, with your sarcasm. I was of course not calling all these people on the plains Barbarians. The brutes that took part in the murder of thousands of Polish, you would not call barbarians or savages? Please, go on then, and do not remember the victims.
it went both ways , Polish were not angels either.
No, they were not. And that is clear to say. However, Polish never stabbed a country in the back in their time of need! They were not cowards who looked for split second barbarian instincts to drive them.
most people will have it given the circumstances.
Maybe it is time that you give up your Victim attitude and move on, but than again, it is only a suggestion.
I never thought of myself as a victim. You are a victim, as much as I am. All of our Polish brothers and sisters are victims. You should know that, and start showing respect for the ones who have gone to be with God.
