Trust 2019

My comment to The Times article Anti-Putin protesters jailed for six years, 7 October 2019.

——

These protests seem to be mostly meaningless. Fake opposition is the most basic thing in Russia and other East European countries.

The same story is being repeated over and over again. Like a well known fairy tale children keep listening to, the West listens to, reads and watches tales of ‘protests’ and ‘opposition’. And Russia obligingly supplies these stories. But are there any true stories here?

One ought to remember what Operation Trust was in the 1920s Soviet Union and how it was replicated in countless variations over the years. The political and social situation in Eastern really is fundamentally different from the West. Think of China, a Communist country with a capitalist makeup. There are ways to camouflage the political life and stage it theatrically. After all, the whole Communist politics was a theatrical play.

So, has a magical return to authenticity in public life in Russia and other East European countries occured or not? It has not.

Take the example of Poland. The Communist regime in Poland created fake opposition movements in the 1970s and 1980s, complete with street protests and prison sentences, and staged a fake collapse in 1989. The first ‘non-communist’ prime minister, Tadeusz Mazowiecki for example, was a three-time deputy to the Communist parliament, each time elected with 96-99 percent of the ‘vote’. There is a long list of post-1990 leaders whom graduated from the same political school but pretended to represented change. The Communists were leading ‘transition to capitalism’ themselves. The Communist party headquarters were even converted to a stock exchange to symbolize the change.

Today’s ‘nationalist’ political leaders in Poland and Hungary are Communist-trained functionaries.

Human rights offenders in Poland

My comment on the article Conservative conference: Human rights offenders may be barred from UK in The Times, 30 September 2019.


You should also add Gluchowska Act, declaring as persona non grata all top Polish officials, including Donald Tusk, current President of the European Council, who approved of severe human rights violations against our family: my wife (Malgorzata Gluchowska), our daughter and I, in recent years. Three other PMs, including the current one should be banned as well. Two Prosecutor Generals.

The list of banned persons should include prosecutors falsifying the juridical process, top officials from the Ministry of Culture in Warsaw, Ministry’s regional inspectors, physicians-functionaries of the Occupational Health Service fabricating false medical statements in the spirit of the Communist dictatorship and many other persons.

Special mention merits one of the lawyers in the Ministry of Culture (!), who threatened to hurt my “paws” during my visit on 23 Oct. 2012.

And what about the teacher and the head teacher who organized a provocation against my daughter in her elementary school?

And what about the heads of the Department at the university where I worked in Poland, who organised provocations in the Communist manner? University officials, who participated? Ministers, who covered this at the top?

Some of those people are former or current Members of the European Parliament.

OGPU and the army

Ben MacIntyre’s article Did MI6 let Cold War spy Kim Philby escape to Moscow? in The Times, 28 September 2019. Here is my comment posted on the newspaper’s website.


[Kim Philby:] I joined the OGPU as one joined the army.

This sort of argument is consistent with what apparently was routine Communist intelligence training in presenting a personal narrative.

I have the personal misfortune to be a brother in law of an officer working for the Polish Communist Ministry of Internal Affairs, Jerzy Skwarczyński, a graduate of a military school. He appeared in our family in 1979, when he married my older sister. I was still in high school then. Professionalism, patriotism and subordination of an army type were part of the story. The problem was that both of my parents were former inmates of Communist concentration camps. But they couldn’t do much about their daughter’s choice.

Today, I know beyond any doubt that both my sister and my brother in law continually worked against me and against my parents, not only before 1990, but the whole time after that. When I got married, this was extended to my own family as well.

The apologetic argument of either following orders or working for a greater good frequently comes up, whenever someone’s ties to Communist intelligence or Communist party are discussed. So, Philby’s statement to this effect is nothing really new and nothing surprising.

Michnik, Konrad, and the fake opposition to Communism

Comment to Gyorgy Konrad’s obituary in The Telegraph. The comment was submitted in the morning of 18 September 2019 to the digital edition of the paper but was blocked.


Adam Michnik is a son of a Soviet agent convicted for his activities against the Polish state in the 1930s. His mother was a Communist as well. He led a highly privileged life. He was one of the key figures in the fake opposition movement created by the Communist authorities. The key roles in this “movement” were played by the children from the Communist hard core.

Communists understood very well that a full control of the past, the present, and the future requires a presence of a phony opposition as well. This trick allows to fool the observers as to the real workings of the system and enables easy maneuvering of the situation in a desirable direction. Also, it allows to execute long-term plans which are more difficult to detect and predict.

The first Communist large scale operation of this type was the Soviet Trust in the 1920s. The Soviets pretended that there is an active internal anti-Soviet opposition. Few years later, they called it off after fooling a large number of people as well as international observers.

Creating a fake opposition is a bread-and-butter Communist technique.

The entire Solidarity movement of the 1970s and 1980s was completely fake and fully controlled by the Communists.

This so-called opposition did not reveal any essential organisational details of the regime or its techniques. The Communist devil is in the details.

The official story line says that the Communist dictatorship collapsed like a house of cards. I am sorry to tell you that this is not true.

My wife and I were expelled from our jobs in state institution, school of music and university, respectively, for political reasons in 2015. We have been under harassment since we have been married more than 20 years ago.

My wife was forced to visit a psychologist under the threat of losing her job. The psychologist was supposedly testing her ability to continue her job of a pianist and piano teacher. There is of course no such thing in psychology as a way to determine during two 40-45 minutes conversations your ability to teach piano. My wife’s cv testifies to her excellent performance in her job. The psychologist issued a report which condemned her mental facilities. A typical Communist method.

The transcripts of the two conversations with the psychologist are available online on our website https://lsborkowski.com/pol/.

We wrote many critical texts about the situation in Poland and distributed it widely via fax, email, and letters. They are available at the aforementioned website. Some of them are also available at https://www.researchgate.net/project/Critical-Narrative-Analysis-Organized-Social-Violence-Criminal-State/ .

Here you can view our short video statement recorded in May 2016:

The Communist techniques are in continuous use in Poland. What we know and what we analyse and describe has not been published by any of the so-called “dissidents” from the Communist countries.

As for Mr. Konrad, I suppose he was a fake “opposition” figure.

Coercive control in Poland

The next comment under the same article as the previous one in this blog.


Lech Borkowski 20 Aug 2019 11:04PM

I should add that if you would like to know more, you can get in touch me via Twitter at @LechSBorkowski.

If you want I can do a lecture or a seminar on the subject of coercive control in Poland. Free of charge.

Coercive control is a concept popularised in the area of domestic violence by Evan Stark (2007). In England, this concept has been used tin the criminal law in 2015.

The social violence implemented by the Communists is a variant of coercive control and is in continued use in Poland. Britain could remain in the same union with Poland only through ignorance.

In Poland the de facto system has nothing to do with the de jure declarations.

The plurality of lies

On 19 August 2019 The Daily 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.

I made a number of comments in a discussion following the article. I already included two of those comments in this blog earlier. Here is another one.

——

Lech Borkowski 20 Aug 2019 10:48PM

Some of the comments seem to suggest that the same basic methodology can be used to describe reality in both Britain and Poland.

As I stated in an earlier comment there is no such thing as political pluralism in Poland.There is plurality of lies, of course, but it is not the same as political pluralism.

The transition to democracy and pluralism was a fake one. There are certain empty rituals but it is easy to find out whether words regained their true meaning or not. They have not.

The deception runs deep and is a permanent feature of the system in Poland. The pluralism is a simulated one, not real.

Take for example the Labour Code. The current Labour Code has been introduced in 1974 as a sort of “Constitution” for the working class. The same Labour Code, with amendments, is in force today. The same punitive measures designed to punish dissidents are in force. In 1996 it was even extended by the Minister of Health ordinance by giving greater freedom to subject a person to arbitrary health checks on a whim. Not out of concern for the health of the employees but to provide excuse for dismissal for political reasons.

This ordinance has been used against my wife in 2015, when she was forced to visit a psychologist on order issued by the Occupational Health Service. Occupational Health Service is an idea from Nazi and Communist camps. Physicians in Auschwitz decided who would continue to work and to live and who should be terminated. Just like someone in the Soviet Union, she has been declared as suffering from unspecified delusions and on that basis dismissed from her job of a pianist and piano teacher.

All the political class in Poland know about this. We have written dozens of letters to top officials in several recent governments. Result? Nothing. Business as usual.

Communist-trained ‘Thatcherite’

My three comments following the article Portland spies undone by a giant lighter by Ben McIntyre in The Times, 24 September 2019, in order of appearance.


The West is completely blind to subversive activities in the political and social sphere which I would call “the narrative management and control”. There is no need to steal secrets, which are handed over freely to those masquerading as allies.

Radek Sikorski, who was at Oxford with David Cameron and Boris Johnson, was sent to the UK by the Polish Communist authorities under the cover of a student trying to improve his English.

His application to Oxford Uni. was supported by Zbigniew Pełczyński, an Oxford professor with warm ties to Polish Communists.

Later, Sikorski worked as a journalist in the UK, posing as a Thatcherite. Ha ha. After his return to Poland, he was an MP and Minister of Defense, Speaker of the Parliament. Today he is a member of the European Parliament.

One of many.

He continues to serve the same people. He is frequently the go-to person in the British media on Poland and other issues.

His journalist wife, Anne Applebaum, should have noticed. However, judging by the nonsense she wrote about contemporary Poland, she is part of the same game.

I suppose this is too difficult to understand by those educated at Eton and Oxford. In other words, the lesson of the Cambridge Four [should be “Cambridge Five”] has not been learned.

The Communists completely outmaneuvered the West. The fairy tale of Communism’s fall is still believed and taught. The Communist lies and disinformation are now part of student curricula at Oxford and Cambridge.


When dealing with this lot one should assume that everything they say is a lie unless proven otherwise.


The aim of those mirrors is to jam the signal and its source.

I posted the following comment under the article in The Times in the morning of 14 Sept. 2019, The two Britains that exasperate and enchant the resty of the world,

“Radek Sikorski, whom the author quotes, was trained for his future political career by the Communists. He had a privileged life in his youth and was selected to be among future top cadres by the Communists themselves

@LechSBorkowski”

Few hours later, in the afternoon, you could read the echo of that comment on Twitter. A group of people, including Radek Sikorski, got involved in a bit absurd exchange (in Polish) using a fake excuse. There was foul language in some of the comments. It is interesting to note that many of the keywords from that exchange fit my profile. Let me quote in translation:

Doctor of Physics (I have a PhD in Physics)
Adam Mickiewicz University (the institution, where I worked for 19 years)
Wroclaw (I was a student in Wroclaw)
quantum mechanics

There are other relevant keywords.

To an average observer this Twitter exchange may seem nothing special. A more careful observer would at least have a sense of ‘something not being right’ and take note.

Milgram’s torture experiment and laboratory of real life

On 28 August 2019, The Times reported about doubts surrounding the famous Milgram psychological experiment on obeying authority and administering pain to other human beings carried out in 1961, Shocking truth about famed Milgram torture experiment. One of those involved in re-analysis of the experiment is Gina Perry (University of Melbourne), quoted in the article.

Here is my comment to The Times article.


The interpretation in Milgram’s experiment depends, at least partly, on the selection of data.

The sample size was small and there are surely other shortcomings we can point out. I see the value of this experiment in posing an important question and attempting to answer it, however imperfectly. This is all ok, provided one does not withhold data and the contextual information from scrutiny.

One cannot view this experiment on its own as a conclusive evidence of a widespread inherent cruelty of humans, although it is a very interesting and important contribution to psychological science. It stimulated discussions and further research. That is good.

On the subject of widespread human cruelty, however, there is plenty of evidence from real life. The data in this case can also be extracted and analysed.

I recommend studying e. g. coercion, psychological and social terror in real life. There are whole countries, whose daily operation involves broad participation in organised social violence. Social violence need not have necessarily a physical component. Some of those countries are EU members.

I became involved in this kind of research out of necessity, much less by choice, as both a target and an observer. The project is ongoing. Results are very interesting and very disturbing.

Polish Minds in Fetters

My comment following Niall Ferguson’s article “Science fiction has become dystopian fact” in The Times, 22 September 2019, about 8:30 pm local time.


My earlier comment was blocked. I will try again.

I would encourage everyone to read “Russian Minds in Fetters”, London: George Allen and Unwin, by the Polish writer and statesman Stanisław Mackiewicz. There is also a more recent edition by Routledge, 2018. He applied to visit the Soviet Union through official channels and having finally received permission, traveled there in 1929. The book is an account of his experience during the trip. The book withstood the test of time remarkably well, as I had to acknowledge few years ago following my own and my family’s experience with the next stage of totalitarianism in Poland. I warmly recommend it.

While Orwell’s 1984 is a very valuable work of fiction, it is just that: a work of fiction. It should not be taken as a substitute for a real-life experience.

Huxley’s idea that the totalitarianism of the future is likely to be of the “love your servitude” type is generally correct, as is evident in Eastern Europe. Rumours about a democratic transition in countries such as Poland, for example, are vastly exaggerated.

There is an abundance of evidence contradicting the official dogma of the “democratic transition” in Eastern Europe. Let me give you just one example.

My wife was fired from her job of a pianist and piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra in Poland in Autumn 2015, using a document fabricated by the Occupational Health Service. The document stated that my wife cannot continue performing her job for unspecified health reasons. The key was a psychologist’s opinion, who accused my wife of having unspecified “delusions”.

We have submitted detailed evidence to the Prime Minister of Poland and to the Minister of Justice, who is also the Prosecutor General. Other Ministers, the Minister of Health, and MPs were informed as well.

Everyone knows that there is no such thing as a scientifically valid procedure of assessment of someone’s psychological ability to do the job of a pianist and piano teacher (and almost any other job, save for the very few narrow tests). Everyone who received our correspondence is perfectly aware that a crime has been committed by the named health service ‘specialists’. We have sound recordings of my wife two conversations with the psychologist. We submitted this evidence to the country’s top authorities.

Nothing happened. Silence, save for the falsifications carried out by the local prosecutor office.

We have informed members of the European Parliament as well. Hundreds of them. No result.

The idea of Occupational Health Service was created under the Communist dictatorship. The officially declared aim of this organisation was to care for the health of the workers by subjecting them to compulsory health checks. However, it was also a tool that could be used to deny a job or to fire someone an under the guise of caring for that person’s health. A typical Communist trick.

A 1996 Ministry of Health ordinance included a vague clause that allowed any physician conducting the health check to ask for an arbitrary additional examination, an absolute carte blanche. This ordinance is still in force today. How is it possible that no one seems to notice its contradiction with the rights declared in the constitution?

The answer to this question is very simple. Constitution in Poland is a purely declarative document. It has no legal consequence. The very concept of law, such as it is understood in an average western democracy, does not exist.

A referral from one physician to another is nothing out of ordinary. The trick here is that the person controlled by the Occupational Health Service has no say in the matter. A refusal may lead to losing one’s job under the excuse of not having submitted a valid health certificate to the employer. Under the conditions of this ‘health check’ the person’s constitutional and legal rights are taken away. You become a prisoner.

Both Nazi and Communist concentration camps had their own health service as well. One could also call it an “occupational health service”. A negative opinion of someone’s health in Auschwitz, for example, meant the termination of employment and physical liquidation.

Contemporary liquidation administers a death of a social type. If you eliminate someone from public and professional life, it is as if this person had been liquidated physically as well. This is the current state of affairs in Poland and most likely in other Communist countries.

This is just one example.

So, as you look into details, it turns out things are completely opposite to what is declared publicly. This discrepancy persists regardless of who is currently in the PM’s office.

This means that the perception of what really happened or not happened in Eastern Europe is in a state of a cognitive catastrophe.

My wife and I are carrying out a project on critical narrative analysis, organised social violence, and criminal state. This was not our entirely free choice. We had to embark on it quite reluctantly.

Remember all those happy chirps about the ‘end of history’?

Neil MacGregor in The Times; more of the same

My comment following the article “The two Britains that exasperate and enchant the rest of the world” by Neil MacGregor in The Times.


After reading this article, I listened to MacGregor’s episode on Poland in his series “As Others See Us”.

Towards the end of the episode he says “because our contributors come from opposite ends of the political spectrum in Poland”.

As I said earlier, Sikorski is a Communist-trained political functionary.

The film director Agnieszka Holland is a daughter of a well known Communist Henryk Holland.

“The academic Agnieszka Graff invited me to her summer retreat in the far east of Poland.”

There is no such thing as “the far east of Poland”.

Both of my parents as well as both parents of my wife came from eastern Poland, which was seized and occupied by the Soviet Union after WW2. Thus the use of the phrase “the far east of Poland” in relation to a location within present-day borders of Poland is a pro-Soviet/pro-Russian device.

Graff makes at one point a reference to “a cult comedy from the 1980s”. I know the film and it is not a cult comedy. It is a Communist film with plenty of instructional material.

Pawel Ukielski, director of the Museum of the Warsaw Uprising 1944, is a member of the Platform of European Memory and Conscience, a phony bureaucracy designed to make a little bit of background noise without doing any damage to the Communist and Russian cause. He was a deputy director of the Institute of National Remembrance in Poland, also a phony institution, designed to blend fact and fiction, while firmly preserving Communist and Russian interests and eliminating as many victims from memory as possible. He was one of the voices behind the idea that the Soviet monuments should not be destroyed but moved instead to a former Soviet army base. Truly Bolshevik idea.

MacGregor’s episode on Poland is just another masquerade. Pretending to show different points of view, while firmly sticking to the usual suspects.

He says at one point

“And in a final irony of a war declared explicitly for Poland, Polish servicemen and women did not take part in the great Victory Parade in Whitehall.”

This sentence is indeed worthy of praise from the Russian authorities. It seems to suggest that the Poles somehow decided not to participate. The British government preferred to appease the Communists and issued the invitation for the parade to the Communists in Warsaw. The Poles fighting on the western front were excluded.

Keep in mind, that the Soviets killed thousands of Polish resistance members when they advanced westwards into the Polish territory in 1944-45.

This was the reason behind my father’s decision to desert from the Communist army on 13 January 1945, one day before the military oath was to take place. Being a member of the Communist army you would not fight for independent Poland. You would fight one enemy for the benefit of another one.

Of course, the American and British leaders had no right to determine Polish post-WWII borders and the Yalta deal was illegal. Yalta is a symbol of western very deep cognitive disaster vis-a-vis Communism which continues today.
