Differences in Polish, American and British mentality

there may well be some deep-seated psychological issues, perhaps something to do with repressed memories from the years in which he and his mother had been abandoned by his daddy.

He shouldn't worry - it is no source of shame. Since time began, some unfortunate women have had to make a living in the only way they can, by selling that commodity for which there is always a demand, no matter how tattered and scabby it may have become through years of overuse.

Really??? one person was responsible for 40 million lacking basic items? ODD. One person taking things for 1 year (1988) made all peoples lives harder throughout 45 years of communism.

1 person multiple X times makes huge number.

I'm saying that everyone felt like the government has been taking, stealing from the people for yearsss

Now they also feel that. Do you encourage people to steal?

following your logic, if you steal a chocolate bar from a store, everyday for a year, it's ok, because nobody even notices and it won't make any change...

well, the change is that you will be labeled as a thief, for all the right reasons...

Your question is without the necessary context. Let me ask question as well. Would you steal food if you were starving?

An American Cow ? nay ! you keep her !

so what do you want? What is your agenda?

It's bs. Nobody was starving.

To reanimate discussion I would like to turn back to this issue:

And yes, people here do pretend not to be Polish. I won't point fingers but if one has a Polish nickname and yet you say you're not only NOT from Poland, but you don't even speak Polish, there is something to think about. If people claim that English is their native language but their sentence structure or their vocabulary doesn't reflect that, there's something to think about.

Many people here have Polish wifes and families or friends. Why do you think it's so hard to think of Polish nickname? I can think of English one, that's not a problem - does it mean I'm English?

Actually I still can't think of many users who have Polish nicknames and possibly could be Poles.

So who you exactly mean?

Half the people in the country took things from work, people in factories took parts and tool, railway workers sold rails, people in stores stole food, people in administrative positions took more valuable items he who didn't lived in misery, that was the reality. The other half (your parents)were SCARED, that's right scared. You're too young to know how it was in the 70s and 80s there was nothing in stores, inflation your paycheck was worthless, family form the countryside brought food to people in the cities.

Puella I’m asking you a question would you steal food for yourself and your kids if you were starving?

I won't get into that manipulation of your. Pennboy's dad wasn't starving.

Half of the school is cheating on tests - do you tell your kid to cheat as well?

ask him. Do you suggest that those who didn't work in mleczarnia were starving? Maybe he was also looking for excuses for his greedy (no bo w końcu skoro można mieć 2 butelki mleka zamiast jednej...)

Uważam, że obaj Panowie nie dorośliście to amerykańskiej mentalności. Nieuczciwości nie można niczym wytłumaczyć. Można jej żałować i szukać "rozgrzeszenia", bo każdy ma chwile słabości. Ale pochwalanie jej, jako jedynej drogi do sukcesu jest po prostu oburzające. Większość skorumpowanych polityków tłumaczy sobie swoje postępowanie w taki sposób jak Panowie (bo każdy to robi, bo tak trzeba, bo nie ma innej możliwości, bo świat jest bezwzględny, bo inaczej nie można...). I ci komuniści którzy sprzedawali kraj też sobie pewnie tak to tłumaczyli. Penn nie tylko ty miałeś rodziców kierowników i wyobraź sobie, że nie wszyscy byli złodziejami... Może czasem lepiej jest być biednym frajerem, który na koniec swojego życia przynajmniej będzie mógł spojrzeć w lustro bez wstydu...

You're too young to know how it was in the 70s

Son, you weren't even born in the 1970s, don't try and tell us how it was then. Or rather, don't repeat your father's excuses.

Wstyd powinien mieć reżim który okradał ludzi przez dekady z pieniędzy które im się należały, gdy się komuś oddaje czuje się ulgę i dumę , nie wstyd ;)

Let's keep it in English it's disrespectful to others. The money went to my mom i saw my father give it to her, when he left for Spain we lived off that money. Kids were fed and clothed for it, he didn't spend it on vodka and hookers.

komu oddałeś?

communists got what they deserved, anything to help speed up the fall of the regime.

Puella,

I'm waiting on your explanation on why my father was stealing milk from his workplace back in Poland.

We were not starving in Poland so why would he keep stealing that fucken milk? Surely you gotta know the answer to this question. Just look at you, you know everything about Penn’s father.

So you admit that your father was a part of regime? I was asking where those maney stolen by regime went...

communists got what they deserved, anything to help speed up the fall of the regime.

You're hopeless.

Ok. I wanna finish the discussion. Today I learn something new. Thank you all.

Btw. I would like to ask some foreigners is it also accepted in other countries to steal and under what conditions...
