Poland, diversity, assimilation, and the theory of national existence

According to the national theory of the pre-war professor and political activist Wincenty Lutosławski: "A black or a red-skinned man can become a true Pole if he takes over the spiritual heritage of the Polish nation, contained in its literature, art, politics, and customs and if he has an unwavering will to contribute to the development of Poles' national existence."

Blocking on Social Media - a necessary end

As a historian, dialogue – discussion is vital for us to hear other perspectives and gain insight, but being involved on social media shows how difficult this can be. After years online on different platforms, I have come to find that reasonable exchanges are extremely rare. In fact, they can be almost impossible to have.   So what must we do when people are incapable of reason and in some instances become unhinged in a belief that they believe everyone else must accept?  I have found that the best thing to do in some situations is to block.  There is no other way to deal with the delusions of some individuals.

Why is Poland so unique, extraordinary, and just undeniably fascinating - at least to me.  There are several reasons.  One of the main reasons is because Poland should not even exist and it does and this is because the Polish never quit fighting for their freedom.  This means over 40 uprisings, and 123 years without freedom yet in spite of all of this, the Polish people remained invincible and a strong culture - unbroken.

Poland - Survivors, not Victims

Poland is a remarkable county in many ways.  The people, the history, the culture, the food, almost everything I have come to love and adore about Poland, and that is one of the reasons I am such an advocate for promoting the truthful story about this nation.  I find that Poles are genuinely survivors, considering what they have been through.
