On 19 August 2019 The Telegraph (London) published an article by Madeline Grant My trip to Poland left me more convinced than ever that we are right to leave the EU to fulfil its superstate ambitions.
The author wrote about her experience during the literary festival in Sopot in Poland.
I participated in the discussion following the article, making a series of comments. Here is the first of them.

First, I think one should get a grip on the basics. Much has been written about the so-called “velvet” revolution in Eastern Europe, the mythical rise of “the people”. In truth the reorganisation of the 1980s and 1990s was simply a remodelling of the old prison. The camp is now beautified with money pouring in from the EU.
The outside observers have been confused by the cacophony, the noise, and the supposed magic rebirth of pre-WWII parties, political views, and dangerous organisations. Religious sceptics, the non-believers, believed in a miracle: the most sinister, the most perfidious and the most advanced dictatorship ever known simply collapsed under its own weight.
The first allegedly non-communist prime minister of Poland in 1989, Tadeusz Mazowiecki, was a three-time member of the Communist parliament. Each time he was “elected” with about 97 to 99 percent of the vote. While he was formally not a Communist party member, there is no higher Comunist distinction than 99 percent of the vote.
Another “hero” of the “opposition” was Adam Michnik, son of a convicted spy of the Soviet Russia in the 1930s.
The current supposedly nationalist and populist leader of the ruling party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, is a son of a Communist party member. His mother had a highly privileged job in the Institute of Literary Studies in Warsaw.
Former allegedly center-right president (2010-2015) Bronisław Komorowski comes from a family most faithfully and obediently serving the Communist regime. His parents worked in one editorial office with the top ideologues of the Communist party in the 1960s.
The “architect” of the big-bang transition to capitalism was Leszek Balcerowicz, a former Communist party member and an employee of the Institute for Basic Problems of Marxism-Leninism in Warsaw.
Lecturers in Oxford and Cambridge continue to peddle the drugs of the velvet revolution and the “transition to democracy”.
E. European countries are now part of the EU.
Do you believe in miracles?
