And the great vision for Poland is to tap on an undeveloped potential of Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
Yes, I believe V4 has to eventually expand South. The key to European safety and stability lies in the Balkans, and the key to the Balkans is (and always has been) Serbia -- more has to be done to use Serbian potential to unify and consolidate the southern flank.
breaking the geopolitical concept of mitteleuropa
Well... I know that when you say "mitteleuropa" you mean the German concept of turning central European countries into their sattelites, both politically and economically, but I think that ever since then the very concept has evolved and, with much mor benevolent Germany than in the past, it is now about the unity of central european countries (including Germany and Austria) who share so much common history, experience and similarities that it would be unwise not to use the potential that there is to tighten the cooperation.
Poles and Germans are probably the most mixed peoples in Europe!
Most mixed and, contrary to widespread stereotypes, most similar. Even the current "ultra-nationalistic" government of Poland is trying to imitate German ordoliberalism of 1950s-60s, simply because hard word, thrift and respect for their country is as compatible with Polish mentality as it is with German.
Poles make good Germans = Germans make good Poles
That's it in a nutshell. :)
The silly board won't let me edit my post - of course I meant "hard work" not "hard word". :D
