Ok. How about 2 million immigrants? It's only about 5% of the current population and this influx should take Poland up to the magical 40 million mark.
Yes about 2 million would be okay, not enough to swamp the country but enough to bring fresh ideas to the economy and kick start changes and improvements in the education system. Many of the cultural events would be self funded and not too much money would be required for maintaining languages /religious studies, hopefully it would be part of the educational curriculum anyway.
Can someone please tell me the last multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country that succeeded in peace and prosperity for many generations?It just doesn't look like a winning formula and certainly not for Polish society.
Netherlands, Switzerland, Canada, Britain, Singapore, Australia all do pretty well as does Malaysia ( most of the time). No country, multi or mono cultural, seems to be peaceful for centuries at a time, it's not human nature.
However, in more recent times, the more multi-ethnic and multi-cultural U.S. society becomes, the worse it gets for the citizenry.
Only because the USA tends to treat ethnic groups as second class citizens, the problems there are as much about class as colour or ethnicity, people from ethnic groups are rarely allowed to rise to the top.
I agree with u foreigner4.. We dont need another uk in Poland.
Poles living in Poland dont go this way or our culture will be lost!!!
You are quite happy to sit in Britain reaping the benefits of a society that was built partly (quite a large part) by Asians,Irish, Afro Caribbean, Jewish groups and native British people who are in the main decent enough to tolerate you and give you a much easier ride than you would have in most countries!!!
