Po polsku / Polska miedzy Niemcami i Rosja. Zalety i wady. [273]

na razie to jest propozycje dla Polski by była kolonią

W pewnym sensie Polska już jest kolonią Niemiec. Od 30 lat Niemcy są na pierwszym miejscu w polskim eksporcie i imporcie towarów oraz usług. Załamanie relacji gospodarczych z Niemcami zakończyłoby się krachem finansowym na niespotykaną do tej pory skalę. Mało tego - popyt na niemieckie towary wytwarzane przy udziale komponentów importowanych z Polski jest odpowiedzialny za ok. 10% naszego PKB. Czyli jak niemiecka gospodarka cienko przędzie, to i u nas jest ciężko.

Właściwie pod względem gospodarczego uzależnienia od Niemiec (które niekoniecznie jest czymś złym*, biorąc pod uwagę dosyć dużą komplementarność naszych gospodarek i demografię) za PiSu niewiele się zmieniło. Na początku byłem nawet pod wrażeniem ich działań w ekonomii, bo wydawało się że mają zamiar naśladować niemiecki ordoliberalizm z lat 50-70, ale niestety na pewnym etapie zabrakło im zaplecza intelektualnego i to wszystko zaczęło się osuwać w jakiś dziwny socjalizm z zabarwieniem katolicko-narodowym, a już ostatnie lata - z całym tym festiwalem rozdawnictwa i drukiem pustego pieniądza - to jest kompletna katastrofa.

Generalnie, to silny gospodarczy sojusz z Niemcami jest w naszym najlepszym interesie, pod warunkiem że nie damy się wmanipulować w oczywiste zagrania obliczone na kontrolowanie naszego potencjału wzrostu (handel limitami emisji CO2, ekodebilizm), a tutaj niestety PiS zgadza się niemal na wszystko, licząc na odblokowanie funduszy z KPO. Szkoda, bo na początku wydawało się, że uda im się coś rozsądnego zbudować.

Problemem pozostaje brak realnej alternatywy. Rządy PO będą oznaczały totalną wasalizację względem Niemiec, bez jakichkolwiek już ograniczeń, oraz prawdopodobnie zahamowanie (lub nawet częściowe porzucenie) planów budowy silnej armii. Konfederacja idzie w stronę UPRu, czyli partii zdecydowanie kanapowej (z elementami kabaretowymi), Lewica nie jest żadną lewicą, w tradycyjnym tego słowa rozumieniu, ale awangardą rewolucji światopoglądowo-obyczajowej, PSL, teoretycznie rozsądna centrowa partia, od początku stawia się w roli przystawki do PO, a Hołownia jest człowiekiem niewiarygodnym (z tego co wiem, to do dzisiaj nie ujawnił źródeł finansowania swojej kampanii wyborczej). Makabra... naprawdę nie ma na kogo głosować.

* - pomijając związane z tym kwestie polityczne albo światopoglądowe, czy ekologiczne debilizmy (np. całkowity zakaz rejestracji aut spalinowych za 13 lat)

Bo witasz (...) wpływy Niemiec w Polsce

Translator wypluł coś takiego z "Because you welcome German influence in Poland"? Po angielsku to zdanie może ma sens, ale po polsku z czasownikiem "witać" już nie bardzo. Jaki jest Twój ojczysty język, jeżeli mogę spytać? Dobrze zgaduję, że norweski? ;)

Horrible... if PiS doesn't find and punish the perpetrators that will be a huge nail to their political coffin. They set up an award of 1 million pln (over 200k euro) for information about the source of toxic pollution.

History / Terrible past for the Jews in Poland? [930]

rebeling against going to the chruch or adherence to the church morality

You don't have to be catholic to go to church or adhere to very strict moral standards (regarding e.g. abortion, euthanasia, family values etc.).

I am very socially conservative and live my life according to the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, but don't want to have anything to do with RCC. And I'm not alone - the ranks of evangelical Christians are swelling in recent years in Poland. Abandoning the corrupt and apostate RCC doesn't equal changing ones moral views and values (most often than not quite the contrary).

Please stick to the topic of the thread

As I understand you do not see the church as an extension of the body of Christ on earth?

I do not see the so-called roman catholic church as having anything to do with Our Lord Jesus Christ or his Church at all. I do not want to go into details, because I would probably hurt somebody's uczucia religijne and in today's Poland one can be severely persecuted for that.

In any case, everything is in the hands of our sovereign God and the perfect justice of Jesus Christ will eventually reach all the wolves in sheep skins who are leading people astray.

Poland as a nation belings to God. Any individuals betraying the cause on an individual level does not change that one bit.

Agree 100%.

you can't deny that the Polish nation belongs to God and sees Jesus Christ as it's king of kings

I am not denying this at all. I am simply refusing to consider the membership in the apostate pseudo-ecclesiastical Roman organisation (aka Roman Catholic "Church") to be some sort of measuring rod of Polishness.

As for the papal curse, I read about it somewhere. Couldn't be arsed looking for details.

He made a spelling mistake

Iron has never been very good with spelling (or your biggest fan) but that's a bit harsh even for his standards. In any case, when your opponent in a discussion on an internet board resorts to this kind of rhetoric, you can assume that you won the argument, so that's a bit of a consolation for you.

Well, I have always been something of a philosemite (under my previous nickname I was even called a Jew on this forum on several occasions :)), but philosemite doesn't always mean an expert on all things Jewish.

@Alien

I am not an expert on Jewish matters, so I don't think I can help you with your question. You are probably referring to American-Jewish hutzpah boys trying to extract billions of dollars from Poland. If you ask me, it's totally groundless and should be dealt with by psychiatrists rather than by politicians, but explaining what's happening in the depths of Jewish psyche is beyond the scope of my limited abilities. :)

Sorry but I do not consider being Catholic as a prerequisite to being Polish.

If it was a prerequisite then we would have to say that neither Mikołaj Rej (a Calvinist), father of Polish literature, nor Marshall Piłsudski (a Lutheran) were Polish. It would be spitting in the face of the Orthodox, Jewish and Muslim (Tatar) soldiers who died in September Campaign, for example.

Luckily, the influence of the CC - the church who cursed Poles after the battle of Grunwald, condemned Polish national uprisings and quickly appointed German bishops for conquered Poland in 1939 - is decreasing every day.

Słyszeliście dzisiejsze przemówienie PADa? Powiedział, że...

" Przez 74 lata istnienia Związku Sowieckiego Rosja Sowiecka przegrała tylko jedną oficjalną wojnę - to była właśnie tamta wojna sprzed 102 lat."

... pomijam już fakt, że Związek Radziecki powstał w grudniu 1922 roku, czyli ponad dwa lata po "Cudzie nad Wisłą", ale wygląda na to, że wojnę w Afganistanie PAD policzył jako zwycięstwo ZSRR. :)

Polonia / Polish bus crash in Croatia. Is there a fate? [20]

@Crow Sorry to hear about the Serbian children. Hope they will get well soon.

God telling to Poles not to travel to Medjugorje to adore the false miracle

Even when I was still a Catholic I considered Medjugorje to be a horrible scam (and the local Catholic bishop of Mostar-Duvno seems to be of the same opinion). If I were a Catholic, it would make much more sense for me to go to Gietrzwałd (as I did in the past) - a place of officially recognised Marian appartitions in Poland, than drive through half of Europe to a place where the CC forbids to go on organised pilgrimage.

@Kashub1410

Don't mind Novichok. He wouldn't know good literature if it slapped him in the face. :) He hates poetry and denigrates the Polish language in which the greatest poetry of the 20th century was written (Miłosz, Herbert, Szymborska).

If I were to give you any advice regarding your writing, I would advise using more poetic metaphors and slightly longer sentences.

News / Lukashenko - removes graveyard - AK resistance fighters [51]

the Soviets care for their graves in Poland is disgraceful

There are no Soviets anymore. You surely meant Russians?

Russian attitude and care for their graves changed. A long time ago (sometime in mid-90s), a small village somewhere in central Poland (I completely forgot the name) renovated their local Red Army graveyard - entirely on their own: cleaned and renewed the gravestones, planted flowers, built paths etc. and they thought Russians would be quite content, so they sent an invitation to the Russian embassy to visit the cemetery on the following Victory Day. Nobody came, they didn't care - they didn't even reply to the message. Local folks were shocked. But things changed and a couple of years ago local authorities in Kartuzy notified Russian Embassy of the damages done to their local Red Army graveyard by the trees falling in a storm. Russians not only replied but also financed all the restoration works...

Razed to the ground... pure barbarism...

Simple soldiers' graves... not commanders, not officers... razed to the ground. Mostly soldiers who died in 1944 "Ostra Brama" operation, fighting to liberate Vilnius from the nazis. One of the operations in which Home Army cooperated with Red Army against Germans...

"The Polish attack on the morning of 7 July stalled almost immediately under heavy fire from German positions. At mid-day, the first armoured units of the Third Byelorussian Front appeared on the battlefield. From then on, until the conclusion of the battle on 13 July, Polish troops fought on the Soviet side."

Three great artists evoke a dirty joke response...

Oh, come on - let's not be such puritans. ;) A joke is a joke.

but also some call to action to be better in the present. To work hard harder towards a better future.

Definitely. I think this generally should be, and hopefully it is, the right approach to history. To learn from it, not repeat the past mistakes in the future and also appreciate what we have now, and what wouldn't be possible without the sacrifices of our heroes.

What about this Borisev dude? And is the Polish flag back in Katyń? Any news on that (I can't find anything on the internet)?

History / POLISH AND RUSSIAN FRIENDSHIP WILL LAST FOREVER [513]

This is the right way to do a Polish history of Katyn.

I'm not quite sure if a rap song about Katyń would be entirely appropriate... but who knows - generations change, sensibilities change.

A Ukrainian way to do Holodomor.

I would leave that for Ukrainians to decide.

How do Poles educated the young generation about Katyn?

Well, this one is relatively new...

... and a history teacher that I know plays it to his highschool students (there are English subtitles).

Talking about Katyń, is this... what was the creature's name... Barisov(?) - is he supervising cattle breeding somewhere in Siberia already? That would help Polish-Russian friendship a lot (to come back to the original topic of this thread).

History / Why American military aid to Europe and Poland is important to America itself? [23]

Russians were not imperial overlords, but honest brokers

According to Janusz Kaliński, professor emeritus of Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), who examined economic relations between Poland and the USSR, Poland was a beneficiary of the trade relations from the end of WW2 up to more or less mid-70s. In that period, as Professor Kaliński claims, the conditions of mutual trade between our countries were by and large satisfactory for Poland. It changed in the later period (mid-70s to the fall of the USSR) when Poland received for her exports to USSR on average one quarter of its value. However, prof. Kamiński avoids giving the unambiguous answer as to whether Poland achieved net loss or gain in her trade with USSR and claims that giving a straight answer to this question seems very difficult because of limited possibilities to measure mutual gains and profits in centrally steered economies, isolated to a large extent from wider world economy. (Source: "Stosunki gospodarcze między Polską a ZSRR", in Białe plamy czarne plamy. Sprawy trudne w relacjach polsko-rosyjskich (1918-2018), red. A.D. Rotfeld, A.W. Turkonow, Warsaw: PISM 2010).

Can you guys tell me what you imported from USSR?

I have no idea, but I made a quick call to my Dad and he said:

- Zorkij and Smiena photo cameras;
- "Ukraina" bikes;
- various household appliances;
- cars (Volga, Lada, UAZ).

How exactly is it, that you know already in what shape the withdrawn/encircled Ukrainian formations are?

My secret is: certain knowledge in military matters, skillful use of internet (various sources from both sides), the ability to separate propaganda from valuable information, and - last but no the least - brilliant analytical mind.

From what is being reported(...)

Thank you for your answer - it is being processed. ;)

Polish "neo-schlachta" should prepare, right after their masters...

You are repeatedly threatening us - do you notice much fear and trembling in response? How about some change of tactics then? You know what they say about doing the same thing all over again and expecting different results. :)

One thing about this war does seriously bother me though... why don't your forces pursue, or at least attack with artillery/air-strikes, retreating Ukrainian forces (like in Severodonetsk recently)? It is during retreat that you can inflict the heaviest losses on withdrawing enemy. Why isn't Russian army doing it??? Watched from the outside it looks almost as if you want to minimalise their losses. WTF? Something is not right here...

History / What makes you feel Polish? [160]

And of course the recent nobel laureate.

A very skillful writer with admirable way with words. I enjoy reading her books from purely linguistic/technical point of view; after all she got - deservedly! - the title of Wielki Ambasador Polszczyzny.

As for the content of her books, I can't help but feel that she's a Wodehouse desperately trying to be Márquez or Allende - the linguisitc skill is there, the depth not so much, so as a result we get Tokarczuk, a writer that will charm you, confuse you but ultimately leave you with a feeling of emptiness.
