Poland is a first world country with third world
politicians.

this doesn't mean we are a third world country and definitely does not reply to the question if you were to compare PL and Ethiopia, would you find it similar. If you would, than I reckon that this is because you've never been to a 3rd world country.

the paraphrasing (gleaned from a newspaper) was a suggestion that the OP, although a bit of exagerational nature, was correct in his polemic that Poland is an land where the peasant toils mercilessly while his puppetmaster profits shamelessly from his crushing labour as he whips his sweaty back, much like in the lesser developed and socially astute lands. This is according to the Hay Group report and also socialist dogmatics of class struggel.

At a guess I would say that people who refer to Poland as a "third world country" have no knowledge of Poland (or wish to), probably don't really like Poland or Polish people and if they have been there, most likely had a bad experience due to the examples I've already written.

They also probably have no knowledge of what a third world country actually is...

it's amazing that the most succinct and insightful response was a mere 4 posts down from the op.

I think some of you are losing the plot and have never visited a 3rd world country either.
Below is a site where you will learn the exact definition.

nationsonline.org/oneworld/third_world_countries.htm

I believe the title to be a little misleading.

I don't need a definition, as exact as it may be. I have visited a 3rd world country, have seen what's it's like with my own eyes, have spoken to the locals personally and let me tell you Poland is not a 3rd world country. Those who say it is are lucky to not know what they are talking about.

I agree, a lot of things could still be improved in Poland, but it's not exactly a mystery behind the iron curtain anymore, and I would hardly call Poland a developing country these days, and calling it a third world country just seems completely ridiculous?

Yes you do.

not know what they are talking about.

You don,t know what your talking about, and your making yourself look stupid.
Take the time to look at the link and stop being a know all .

You will see that Poland is actually a 2nd world country. Thats why I am saying some of you have lost the plot.

2nd world was a term used to describe SU and its satelites in Europe.

Oh well, sorry!

;P

Compared to which country I wonder? Poverty is relative you know. You're only poor if all of your neighbours earn thrice as much as you do. (And we simply don't.) Poland is only slightly behind, and they're definitely catching up in certain areas, and I can see they're already competitive in certain branches. (Abroad aswell.) I'm not going to talk about percentages and stuff, but you know Poland has been the commercial centre of Europe once, and they were for a good reason..

Yes you do.

I still think I don't. I prefer to experience things rather then read definitions.

sorry if I wasn't clear. I meant that sometimes it's better to not know about some things. Visiting a 3rd world country can be emotionally a very difficutl experience.

Actually it's (according to the World Bank) an upper-middle-income country.

what a bizarre title of the thread

If Poland is Third World Country, what are Britain, France or Germany? Shitenlandia?

Sorry girl, suppose it looks a bit like that, just like to banter of course, but I will try to avoid you for a while.

Does that count for sex too ?
Just joking, you dont have to answer that.

Catch up with you in the future.

PEACE AND LOVE.

though there is that third world mentality that many of the local folks seem to have...

They don't have Walmart, I think that answers the question.

But seriously, comparing Poland to France? Poland is about like France 30 years ago, except with horrible roads.

Poland was an occupied country for decades with no investment...as for 30 years behind..I dont think so..have you seen rural parts of France? and the slums in Paris?

you got it

Poland was an occupied country for decades with no investment...as for 30 years behind..I dont think so..have you seen rural parts of France? and the slums in Paris?

That's why Poland is 30 years behind. Have you seen the hospitals? The transportation system? The glorious roads? The lack of sulfur smell in the winter? The quality of food available?

It's catching up though. I think the countryside will be stuck back in time for a while though...

Why a slur? If I had the choice, I would not have minded being born French (like 20% of Brits according to a survey done a few years ago)

Poland is fourth world country. Here they still serve dead dogs in the polish restaurants:

ww.petwellbeing.com/articles/2009/08/dogs-on-menu-in-poland.cfm

A couple living on a farm near Czestochowa in southern Poland are currently being questioned by Polish police regarding selling lard on their farm that appears to have come from dogs and puppies that have been fattened for slaughter, in an attempt to create one of Poland's famed national dishes out of the dogs.

The couple is selling the lard as an alternative to one of Poland's national dishes, called Smalec. It is a special type of lard that is served with bread as an appetizer of sorts in restaurants throughout Poland.

You know what's strange about you guys, you just take any criticism at all. Yes we do do have some poverty in the states too just like anywhere else in the world but this is all about Poland here and I made my statement according to what I've seen while being over there for quite a while. Really bad roads, drunks at the "kiosks" to mention only a couple of your problems. I'm not trying to put you down guys, I'm only responding to the subject of this thread. Besides, what you've seen in the states is not common for the whole country. I bet you went to Chicago or NYC or any other big city. If you put it that way, go to Rio de Janeiro and you'll see some real poverty there.

which guys? You are quoting one person's point of view. Stop extending somebody's standpoint onto more people.
