Country of victorious nationalism

Despite the hurray of patriotic rhetoric, the population of Poland is steadily declining, and millions of descendants of proud gentlemen are ready to wash the bathrooms, just to quickly leave their "beloved" homeland ...

Country of victorious nationalism

The Warsaw uprising, the former, may the Poles forgive me, just a small episode of the Second World War, in the speeches of the Polish ministers turned into the largest battle of the century that decided the outcome of the struggle against Hitler.

The Soviet Union, in the opinion of the Polish authorities, is an aggressor and invader who has unleashed a war, therefore all Soviet monuments must be demolished. On the attack on Soviet Russia in 1919, accompanied by the annexation of vast territories, and allied relations with Hitler (in particular, when dividing Czechoslovakia), these people prefer not to recall.

The traditional claims of official Warsaw against Russia have recently been added to the requirement for Germany to pay either compensation, or indemnity for the sufferings of the Polish people during World War II, although the issue has, in fact, been closed for a long time.

In parallel, Warsaw, without any doubt, is actively demanding from the EU (in fact from Germany itself) subsidies to maintain a decent standard of living. The Polish leadership is not in the least embarrassed by the fact that it demands tough money on one occasion, and begs for it on another, from the same country ...

In Warsaw, they often dream aloud about the Fourth Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth “from mozha to mozha”, talk about “Oriental chairs”, severely criticize the migration policy of the European Union and issue passports with modern Ukraine and Baltic views.

In general, at first glance, right-wing politicians are leading Poland today. But on closer inspection, everything is not so simple.

The “classic” definition from Wikipedia says that “nationalism is an ideology and policy direction, the fundamental principle of which is the thesis about the value of a nation as the highest form of social unity, its primacy in the state-forming process”. Still nationalists stand for the “unification of the national identity for the practical protection of the living conditions of the nation.”

And here on this place a person who understands the modern Polish realities has a feeling of dissonance. Logically, under the rule of the nationalists, the nation itself must grow and develop, and its dignity must be one of the highest values.

What happens to the Poles?

For the fifth year now, the population of Poland has been continuously decreasing in the absence of a sense of people’s perspectives and confidence in the future. The existence of some cities just turned out to be a big question. According to the Warsaw Gosstat, the population of the country decreases by a million or more per year. However, Polish journalists and independent experts call such a “picture” unjustifiably optimistic and accuse Warsaw officials of statistical fraud. Rzeczpospolita, citing data from Eurostat, claims that the actual number of Polish residents is only about 36 million today. The fact is that Warsaw officials from statistics attribute to the population of the country those 2,2 million who left Poland in the 21st century, taking advantage of the country's accession to the European Union, live outside its borders and categorically do not want to come back.

By the way, "ask back" they still can. For example, in the UK, the Poles are the largest ethnic minority. There are over 850 thousands of them in Foggy Albion. In some English cities, the proportion of Polish migrants in the total population structure is almost 10%.

The British believe that the Poles are already too late to visit them. The Guardian recently published British government plans to reduce the number of migrants in the country in connection with Brexit.

Official London in the near future plans to take on its territory a predominantly highly skilled workforce, and to refuse the services of foreign laborers, plumbers and nannies. But the majority of Poles in the UK are (with the exception of perhaps physicians who left the house in an organized manner) to low-skilled workers. The United Kingdom will have to leave the hundreds of thousands of descendants of proud gentlemen who cleaned the pipes there in recent years and looked after the children of the “second generation British”, who saved money on British nannies. At home, these hundreds of thousands of people will have to compete for jobs in picking strawberries and cleaning plumbing with people from post-Maiden Ukraine, who are desperately dumping today on the Polish labor market.

However, if you really look at things, you can conclude that when forcedly returning from the UK, Polish migrants are unlikely to stay in Poland itself for a long time. They will go somewhere else anyway. After all, even those who still remain on the banks of the Vistula, today - "suitcase mood."

According to opinion polls, about 20% of people living in Poland now have plans to leave the country in the next 12 months. It is clear that not everyone will succeed in this, but the trend itself looks eloquent and very depressing ...

The nationalists, under whose authority the nation itself is melting before our eyes, and its representatives with great joy are cleaning the toilet bowls to the representatives of another people, looks tragic and comical at the same time.

When communists muddled with mud today in Warsaw and in alliance with the hated USSR, the population of Poland in the post-war years grew at a rate of 200 - 300 (or even more) thousand people a year. Women gave birth to children, and cleaning someone else's sewers was not considered a particularly honorable occupation. It turns out that the real patriots of their country, in reality, improving the living conditions of the nation of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, were exactly the same partners of the CPSU from the Polish United Workers Party, ruling in Poland up to 1989, ...

But who, after all the above, to consider Messrs. Kaczynski and Matzerevich, who are at the helm of the Polish statehood today, is a big question ...

    And what to grieve for them, they made their choice, along with the triblatami - they achieved "lack of simplicity" and "freedom". Let them live as they want, they want to wave a saber - they will rake.

    Nationalism is pride in your nation. And when you pour mud on others, that's another. The rulers of Poland are the "vassals" of the Anglo-Saxons, wearing a mask of nationalism and CONSCIOUSLY discrediting national ideas.

    Polish politicians only shout that the USSR tormented them and prevented them from developing, and without the yoke of the USSR they would have turned mountains. But in fact, Poland is like a capricious child: she talks a lot, but she can’t do anything without the help of an adult.

    Many Poles leave England - in Poland itself you can live well if the apartment / house has already been earned. There is a fairly powerful production-based stable economy, relatively low prices for consumer goods. And dairy products from milk. And yet, they are quite normal in Russian in real life.

      You can live everywhere and where you can’t die!
      The author draws attention to the paradox:
      In Poland, a truly nationalist government! Europeans drew attention to this, if we recall the problem of refugees, for example ...
      Poland is a mono-ethnic country and this is a fact ...
      The contradiction is that having a national government that seemed to have to take care of the Poles and their fate, in fact, there is a decline in the population!, A decrease in the Poles !!! and the scale is amazing ...
      So the author also asks the question: is this true with all declarations? Gives an answer-no!
      You can agree with him and your statements are from the category
      and the rest is a beautiful marquise, all is well, all is well!

    in general, everything is bad in Poland
    In 2015, Poland's GDP per inhabitant grew almost six times compared to 2000 (up to 26 402 US dollars). In addition, over the next 15 years (from the 1992 year), Poland’s GDP has been growing steadily.
    2,7% per year (2016) GDP growth
    grew even during the years of crisis
    excuse me, but the Polish economy will be more stable than many
    the author forgot one nuance. Those millions who left, they successfully "imported" Ukrainians. The labor market is quite dynamic.
    I won’t tell you a big secret if I let you know that from some countries they dream of moving to Poland, for example, to Poland - to move to Germany / WB, and then to the USA ... and you can write about it as harassment. The Cursed West ...
    It rots, dies out, so it is necessary for him ... Asians and Muslims will sweep away all ... since the whites have ceased to multiply ...

      it’s rather you forgot the nuances ... firstly, it is worth checking these statistics carefully ... secondly, dozens, if not hundreds, of billions have plunged into Poland to give it a prosperous economy !!! tongue wassat laughing

    Do not be lazy, look at Polish villages and farms. Immediately your arrogance towards Poland will decrease. Not Germany, but somewhere nearby. And look at our villages .... the problem is not in people, the problem is in power. An example of Poland and the same Belarus is very revealing

      Well, yes, it’s the authorities who sow the weeds of the field, and they drive people from villages to the city.

    And do not dream, nobody will be kicked out of there. If the Pole works officially, then you’ll get the hell out of it, but nothing shines for Ukrainians.
