When I contrast it with Ireland, I find Poland a less caring society.
And unlike Ireland, you don't have the social capital that we do.
Of course, it is all true. Let`s remember history plays a crucial role in these differences. The Irish were controlled by the English for a long time during which they had a chance to acquire higher English culture and give up their barbarian life style. English domination in Ireland produced good effects eventually and today you can be proud of your achievements.
It was different with Poland controlled by Russians who, let`s be honest, were always half European, half Asian. Russians didn`t bring higher culture into Poland, quite the opposite, they brought Eastern barbarism.
