you strongly oppose Poland`s membership in the EU. So, explain this contradiction because you seem to be engaged in heavy doublethinking
There is no contradiction and I'll be very happy to help you
understand this with another learning moment for you.
Poland is a sovereign nation.
Yes, really, you read that right!
Your communist indoctrination and privileged PRL-era upbringing keeps misleading you into believing (nay, more important to you, "feeling"!) otherwise but it is a fact.
True Poles know that Poland has been free and independent throughout many centuries of its 1,000 year history. It is Poland's natural state of being.
Your Soviet-influenced existence is but a mere speck of dust which is not representative of true Poland at all.
As a sovereign nation Poland is free to join, challenge the direction of, and leave international unions and alliances as befits its own national interests.
Indeed, Poland has flexed its sovereignty within the EU many times most notably by declining to join the disastrous Euro currency and refusing to accept unneeded and unwanted non-EU economic migrant quotas from Brussels.
Poland has also sought direct bilateral trade agreements around the world in the interests of Poland's export markets.
Poland has looked to Washington not Brussels on military matters.
Poland has also been very active in maintaining ties with and assisting Polonia worldwide.
Even the EU paid lip service to this reality of Polish sovereignty in its 2018 State of the Union Address:European sovereignty is born of Member States' national sovereignty and does not replace it. Sharing sovereignty - when and where needed - makes each of our nation states stronger.
So why did the EU need to make this statement at all?
Because EU politicians know the EU is despised and they will grudgingly say anything now to buy themselves more time.
Because the EU has morphed far beyond its original purpose when Poland finally did join despite being delayed unfairly and unjustifiably by xenophobic welfare queens in Ireland.
And yes, Poland's accession was hard fought and richly deserved.
Not only in the context of its suffering during WWII.
Not only in the context of its struggle against and its final victory in defeating communism (even while some PRL-era commie fat cats with the right connections were living large in America at the time).
In order to even qualify for EU accession Poland had to purge and transform everything from top to bottom especially PRL-era laws, regulations and policies which stifled its social and economic potential.
Poland's economy underwent "shock therapy" to allow it to integrate into the free market (which was the original purpose of the EU when it was the EEC).
Privatisation and economic restructuring in Poland lead to a rapid rise in unemployment, inflation, and removal of many social safety nets. But this proved to be a short term hardship. Compare Poland today with other neighboring countries like Ukraine which was slow to transform its economy after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Political considerations aside Ukraine is still not economically prepared to join the EU decades after it became independent.
Your ill-informed posts on this topic simply demonstrate how PRL-era professional students like yourself have enjoyed an uninterrupted, cosseted livelihood completely detached from the rest of Poland's economy and Polish society ever since the 1990s.
Indeed, how can any professional student understand what has really been going on in Poland, and the issues experienced by real Poles, when for decades their time has been divided between their big city apartments, high school level Ivory Towers, and their private countryside dachas with the only distractions being regular, leisurely trips on a gilded and completely subsidised Grand Tour of Europe during an already short work schedule during the year?
