Now don't be so naive.
All that info about Wałęsa is nothing new. Personally I think that that spectacle unfolding in the media is redundant. That man plays no part on the political scene in Poland. He hasn't been involved in anything remotely resembling a real political activity for years, nobody cares what he has to say. There was no need to expose him in this way.
He is in the world for bad or worse a symbol of the Solidarity movement in Poland, I would just let him be, provided he would stop forthcoming with opinions about political situation in Poland.
More interesting is how Jaro Kaczynski got out of internment whereas the true dissidents
That is just something I would advice against i.e. slander based on individual political sympathies or lack of those thereafter. It just the worst kind of gossip.
Lech Wałęsa, Adam Michnik, Jacek Kuroń etc had it so much harder.
Did they? Somehow I don't see they had that much harder. Has somebody wrote a comparison study on levels, degrees and tiers of the hardship which particular members of the opposition faced while in the custody of Jaruzelski regime? Adorned with humorous engraving and with charts and diagrams.
I would think that prominent or know in the west as dissidents have been treated better than some obscure or unknown to the public members of the opposition.
I don't think that Adam Michnik has been treated badly. After all he was defending Jarzuleski saying or writing famous - "F@@ek off from the general!" Also he said that a person in change od his imprisonments "Kiszczak is an honorable man". I would think that such an attitude would indicate he remembered his time behind bars with nostalgia and found memories. Unless the man is a masochist he was apparently having a time of his life.
Nobodies didn't get their children to star in movies in the PRL
Said an expert. How do you know that?
