Pascal’s Wager on Climate

Pascal’s Wager on Climate

Written by: in: Society

Climate changes are dependent on many different factors that are beyond our control, it is impossible to formulate any predictions and especially to project any climate changes. We have no influence on long-term trends and looking at this problem from our human perspective – thus shortened to just a few hundred years concerns us greatly. Regardless […]

Polish national team lost, but Poles are still in game

Polish national team lost, but Poles are still in game

Written by: in: Society

I won’t be writing about the match with the Czech team although I knew the recipe for success as a half of Poles. If it wasn’t for the fact that because of some reasons Smuda, not me, was then (still) the selector, the fate of the championships (and of the world) would have been completely […]

Poland won EURO 2012. And Donald Tusk scored the winning goal.

Poland won EURO 2012. And Donald Tusk scored the winning goal.

On the opening day of Euro 2012 former PM Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz portended that public mood will depend on Polish football team’s results in the championship, while on Tuesday Leszek Miller, in his way, scoffed at Tusk that he needs Polish football players’ victory more than Gierek did. Both gentleman are wrong, because footballers’ results had […]

Family policy – facts, myths and solutions

Family policy – facts, myths and solutions

Written by: in: Society

A great wave of discussion about the pension reform implemented by the government is sweeping through Poland. It is a necessary reform, forced by sad demographic factors. We discuss too little  so-called “the other side of the coin”, by which the state can influence the demography or the family policy. It is worth establishing the […]

Abdication of the Church

Abdication of the Church

Written by: in: Society

On Monday, May 21, an overwhelming majority of the members of the Norwegian Parliament decided to separate the Lutheran Church from the state. During another voting session on Thursday, the earlier decision of the chamber was reaffirmed. This is certainly one of the more important developments in the last few decades in Norway, and it […]

What do we really know about Bombay?

Obama’s serious blunder might have shown a lack of professionalism in the administration of the White House. Certainly, though, it also confirmed what we already know about Poland. We shouldn’t be worried about Obama’s words hurting our national pride. The bigger problem is the fact that the blunder made by Barack Obama reflects poorly on […]

Who wins the game?!

Who wins the game?!

Written by: in: Society

Enough of deadly serious and boring deliberations whether we should organize Euro 2012 or not, what could be built if it were not for that, whose fault it is that we’ve built too little or too much. Bring an end to serious discussions about civilizational project. Bring an end to deliberations about serviceability of motorways […]

Arab revolution

Arab revolution

Written by: in: Society

In this article, I hope to cast a brief glance at the uprisings of the Arab Spring and, by comparing them to the revolutions of the twentieth century, particularly the Iranian revolution, examine some of their resulting transformations and address how ephemeral or  lasting these transformations may be, particularly for Tunisia and Egypt. This comparison […]

The naïve ones of 2012

Written by: in: Society

About 30 000 people applied for a volunteer position during the 2012 football championship in June. And I am not going to criticise any one of them. They had various motivation. It is understandable that they wanted to take part in adventure, particularly if it could take place in interesting location such as stadiums. It […]

Balance restoration

Balance restoration

Written by: in: Society

Extension of the retirement age is necessary and it results from both demographic transformations and future challenges of the labour market The contemporary Pole’s life looks more or less as follows – he spends about 25 first years of life outside the labour market trying to overcome next stages of education. Next, there is about […]
