Handshake for Romney

Handshake for Romney

Written by: in: Politics

Lech Walesa went too far. Inviting the Republican candidate for the president of the USA to Gdansk was a political manifestation after when the ex-President of Poland “couldn’t” meet with Barack Obama during his visit in Warsaw. Walesa is very often affronted by small people and gets outraged. He usually has reasons to do that. […]

Hollande — hope for the European Left?

Hollande — hope for the European Left?

Written by: in: Politics

In May, Nicolas Sarkozy lost the presidential elections in France. One can say, he deserved it, as he had implemented many reforms that were either unfair or not well thought-over. He restricted, for instance, civil liberties by implementing, back in 2009, the HADOPI law, which is based on the same principles as ACTA. He unreasonably […]

It won’t be easy for Greeks

Written by: in: Politics

The Greek elections’ outcome came with a sigh of relief for Europe. Of course, European decision makers were prepared for the back-up plan, in which they would need to talk to the leader of populist SYRIZA, but those talks would be much more difficult and less predictable as to their final outcome.

Either federation or disintegration

Either federation or disintegration

Written by: in: Politics

If the Union wants to overcome the crisis, it has to “run forward.” It means that it has to build an actual federation. Only a genius or an ignorant is able today to predict in all probability the future of Europe. Fortune telling and futurology is a field for naive people, whose predictions never come […]

Polish xenophobia and ‘besieged castle’ mentality strengthened by a BBC documentary about racism on Polish stadiums and Barack Obama’s ‘Polish death camps’. Barack Obama’s statement about the ‘Polish death camps’ is a reason to be worried. It is not because it blames the Poles for the Holocaust, but because it has rallied the nation under […]
