How a Slovak poet described Poland four centuries ago

Daniel Krman (1663-1740), a Slovak writer and poet who chronicled his travels to neighbouring lands, penned this bit of verse about Poland:

"Clarum regnum Polonorum
est coelum nobilorum,
paradisus Judeorum,
purgatorium plebeiorum
et infernus rusticorum."

(The glorious kingdom of the Poles
is a nobleman's heaven
a Jew's paradise
a plebeian's purgatory
and a peasant's hell).'

And some latter-day Soviets what to return to that exact same order (sans the noblemen) and take it to a global scale. And all under the pretense of "equality" and "progress" of course.

Just look at the world today (even the posts on here) and how these agitators decry their actions and identity being spoken about publicly.
