Enjoy it for a while and I will be back soon.
Great, because there is so much more on the way!Reason 1 - Negative attitude to the EU
The EU suffers from a "democratic deficit"
(go look it up) and the American government recently reduced its diplomatic standing from nation state to international organisation status because of this.
But if you want a more unvarnished take, there is a must-watch presentation titled "The EU - the new Soviet?"
given by writer, lecturer, human rights activist, and former dissident Vladimir Bukovsky outlining the startling similarities the EU has with the former Soviet Union.
Right down to calling the EU out for its "intellectual GULAG known as political correctness"
It really is clear that any fondness in Poland for the EU has two different reasons which are generational.
- For young Poles, it is their naiveté.
- For old Poles (like the OP) it is a Pavlovian conditioning shaped way back in the PRL-era in those families who actually did very well for themselves under Soviet rule and yearn for a return of the good old days!
most Poles support the EU, seeing many benefits in the membership.
Welfare queens always love big Government and find comfort in the dependency on Government handouts no matter how meager.
For them, their eternal dream of becoming fully European instead of merely Eastern European nation is gradually taking real shape.
You are the very same poster who in another thread was banging on about a "Polish Lithuanian Diplomatic War"
and your nationalist belief that Lithuania must do more to accommodate the linguistic and cultural needs of the social construct known as "Lithuanian Poles"
Explain your doublethink
