News / Der Spiegel: "Poles are now the masters of Europe" [49]

the authoritarian-ruled and plagued by human rights violations of Ukraine. "Exemplary student and a naughty boy" - he writes, "Spiegel" of the two countries.

Interesting, what could be the origins of this difference? Could it be, for example, that genetics between two nations is so different? If yes, why?

Off-Topic / The EU's New Pact on Migration and Asylum [74]

But it is easy to understand why refugees are not looking for a countries like Greece, Bulgaria or Poland to stay in. They are looking for a country which could provide normal living conditions and jobs to them...

Off-Topic / The EU's New Pact on Migration and Asylum [74]

Poland is an EU border country (like Greece for example)....

In this case Germany should be lucky enough not to accept any refugees. It doesn't border any unsafe country...

Off-Topic / The EU's New Pact on Migration and Asylum [74]

Understandably, as those 95% surely came through Poland....

I don't know exactly, but I think that not necessarily. I think many could apply right in Ukraine, in German embassy. From what I know Poland accepted quite a few Ukr. refugees as well, so many of those who received refusals in Poland could ask in Germany later. But in any case it contrasts strangely with some claims of frau Merkel regarding refugees... But since it is internal German affair, I don't have any claims to her. Poland could be safe enough (as well as Russia, Belarus or Romania), but may be in a financial trouble to provide any normal living premises or jobs to those refugees. So, refusals would be expected...

Off-Topic / The EU's New Pact on Migration and Asylum [74]

An interesting info: some sources claim that 95% of people from Ukraine who attempted to escape the war in Donetsk and asked for an asylum in Germany got instant refusals and were prohibited to enter Germany.

How many of the remaining 5% were turned back already in Germany?

History / Modern myths and legends about communist past in Poland [227]

State capitalism is an economic system in which the state undertakes business and commercial economic activity (i.e. for-profit) and where the means of production are organized and managed as state-owned enterprises.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_capitalism

In my understanding a "communism" is something utopic, which never existed yet. Some hypothetical system under which "everyone contributes according to abilities and receives a share of a total product according to her needs".

History / Modern myths and legends about communist past in Poland [227]

Communists later filled it with the engine and other components

Does system which existed in Poland more than 30 years ago really requires such an exotic name as "communism" or it can easily fit under definition of a "monopolistic governmental capitalism"?

History / Do Polish people in general dislike Russia or Germany more? [369]

Last time I checked Vlad1234 wasn't a self proclaimed communist

I don't understand which relation does my personality have in this context. I just wanted to point out that both invasions of Nazi Germany and USSR of Poland had happened more than 80 years ago. And what difference does it make if some person is a communist or not if he doesn't want to force anyone to live under communism?

History / Do Polish people in general dislike Russia or Germany more? [369]

the same can be said about poles doing bad things to Russians and Germans in the past.

Poles caused some unmotivated cruelties to Germans? When it happened?

Stalin had launched a invasion on Poland and executed 22 thousand Polish officers at Katyn

This is very sad, of course, but it happened more than 80 years ago...
