There are many politicans, pharmacists, lawyers, priests and shopkeepers whose past haunts them. So what?
So they should make peace with themselves and society about their past misdeeds while they still can. I'm sure that if they, and the First Secretary of the Party, simply confessed their mistakes in the past and worked to make up for those, society would forgive them. It is more than possible to make up for past misdeeds, that's why Poles think so highly of Lech Walesa to this day. Even if what the PiSlamic State claim was true, what Walesa achieved after his supposed collaboration has more than made up for it. Poland today is a free country and won that freedom with remarkably little bloodshed; without Walesa it is very probable that there would have been a lot more bloodshed and quite possibly a lot less freedom too.
But we were not discussing anyone except Walęsa, so focus on him, his virtues and vices as well.
This thread is about the IPN and what its documents supposedly say, so discussing the fact that the IPN claims not to have even a single piece of paper in which anybody even mentions the First Secretary of the Party, Jarek Kaczynski, not being seen with women much or why that might be is very much to the point. Why is it that the IPN should be able to be 100% certain on one thing but to have 0% knowledge about another?
Instead the nomenklatura flourished and thrived on the fat of the land.
Yes, it is a pity that Walesa never seized the multi-million zloty villas in leafy suburbs from the former collaborators who'd got those properties by selling out the people of Poland, but I suppose it was in the end for the greater good.
