The other side of the Iron Lady

The other side of the Iron Lady

Written by: in: Politics

A big reformer, a friend of Poland and of freedom, a symbol of female emancipation – these are just simple and overused clichés about Margaret Thatcher. The truth about her rule is far more complex. Traditionally, Women’s Day revives the debates that have been forgotten for most of the year. Some of them are trivial […]

Republicans 2012: Anatomy of Defeat

Republicans 2012: Anatomy of Defeat

Written by: in: Politics

We are over the key moment of primary elections, that is the “Super Tuesday”, when people from ten American states simultaneously vote. Most often, during that day (at the very latest) the decision is actually made who will be nominated for a candidate of their party for the presidential elections. And if not, there remains […]

Beneficial absence of Santorum

Beneficial absence of Santorum

Written by: in: Politics

During one of the meetings with electors, Rick Santorum bumped into a person who didn’t hide the homosexual orientation and was asked by that person about reasons for which he rejects the possibility of entering into marriage by lesbians and gays. On one hand I liked the reaction of this extreme right-winger but on the […]

Newt?! Really?

Newt?! Really?

Written by: in: Politics

Observing this year’s republican primaries is a considerable pleasure for a democrat. Three first primaries in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appointed three different winners. The first one, Rick Santorum has very slim chances for the election. He is a classic extreme conservatist, whose main selling point would be his great devotion to religion […]

Bang goes the Internet?

Bang goes the Internet?

Written by: in: Politics

The two sides of the ACTA dispute are represented by values that have never before been confronted in such a direct manner. Firstly, we deal with a crucial element of individual freedom, namely: respecting the inviolability of individual’s personal/intimate life. Secondly, we have the property right and its more abstract form of intellectual property and […]

Palikot, the Left, a piece of cake

Palikot, the Left, a piece of cake

Written by: in: Politics

Activities of the Palikot’s Movement (Ruch Palikota – RP) turned out to be the greatest, but predictable disappointment in politics (from the point of view of the liberal voter) of the last few days of the year. When the position of the group in the pre election polls become strong and especially since entering the […]

128 years on the sidelines

Written by: in: Thought

Around what values did liberal parties organize in Europe and historical reasons of institutionalized weaknesses of liberalism in Poland. It seems that the political scene of  Poland has gone through two decades of which the latter is still in progress. The first phase was characterized by a major instability of political parties which were established, […]

The body as a battlefield

The body as a battlefield

Written by: in: Thought

Liberals are often compelled to stress that the state is not the only body able to limit the freedom of an individual. Liberalism originally developed to restrict the arbitrariness of state authorities and aimed to prevent the private sphere of life from the influence of interventionist bureaucrats. However, having built the constitutional system of the […]

Liberal mosaic

Liberal mosaic

Written by: in: Thought

Ralf Dahrendorf was a liberal thinker for whom the conflicts procedeeing in various ways in the highly complicated structure of the society seem to be a permanent phenomenon. Modern liberalism, offering freedom of three kinds, composed his response, a difficult response for darious needs and contradictory interests. The goal of liberalism was apparently impossible ereconciliation […]

Van Rompuy: Much ado about what?

Van Rompuy: Much ado about what?

Written by: in: Politics

Yesterday’s appointment of the President of the European Council and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy was truly disappointing. Worse than that – it is a genuine manifestation of “Euro-bureaucracy” in its worst form. Another backstage compromise, another decision that has nothing to do with courage and ambitious projects.
