Conservation of lawlessness in Poland

The third of my comments following Twilight of Democracy by Anne Applebaum, review: a querulous and flawed analysis of Europe by Philip Johnston in The Telegraph, 26 July 2020.

In September 2011, at the time when Anne Applebaum’s husband was Foreign Minister in the Donald Tusk government, Polish authorities launched an incredibly vicious operation against our family.

We have been targeted for years, but earlier provocations, although harmful, were not entirely successful. This time they decided to launch a very intense operation aimed initially at my wife, a pianist and piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra. We monitored the operation’s progress and recorded its details in our letters to the authorities. This was state-sponsored lawlessness in full throttle. It contradicts Applebaum’s narrative about Poland.

As a result of this operation, we wrote many letters to the country’s top authorities. We pointed out numerous violations of law and our basic human rights. The government protected the immediate perpetrators and the associated lawlessness. In other words, the state and the criminal organisation is one and the same entity in Poland. Radek Sikorski served this criminal organisation for many, many years as well. He does this now as a Member of the European Parliament.

Eventually the authorities decided to remove us from our jobs. I was an associate professor of physics at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. We were both fired at the end of 2015. In case of my wife they manufactured fake medical statement, claiming that she suffered from unspecified ‘delusions’. The best piano teacher of the school was declared by the authorities unfit for work. A typical Communist method.

It was not a question of ‘if’ but ‘how’ we were to be liquidated.

I was the only faculty member at the University’s Department of Physics with a western PhD. The key distinction between me and the rest of the faculty is the fact of my parents’ staunch resistance to Communism and my full support of it. My father deserted from the Communist army with his entire company in 1945. My mother’s family provided food and shelter to Polish non-Communist resistance in the area occupied by the Soviet Union. I was possibly the only faculty member of a university in Poland, whose parents were prisoners of Communist concentration camps.

Applebaum’s narrative about the Law and Justice Party is false as well. I was a member of that Party from 2008-2010, when it was in ‘opposition’. I saw it from inside. It conducted no discussion and activities. For all practical purposes it was dead. There were party meetings and superficial discussions, but never anything real.

The Law and Justice provocative moves are grotesque and superficial. In reality, the lawlessness of the state has been invariant under the so-called ‘transition to democracy’ and is invariant under the change of governments. The overthrow of Communism was staged. Radek Sikorski’s legend of underground activity against Communism before he came to the UK is simply not true. It was fabricated.

Has Anne Applebaum ever told you that Adam Michnik, the leading ‘dissident’ in Poland during the 1970s and 1980s, is a son of a Communist convicted in the 1930s for acting against the Polish state on behalf of the Stalin’s Soviet Union? How did he transition from being part of the most privileged Communist youth to seemingly acting against the system? Or did he? Similarly, Tadeusz Mazowiecki, the allegedly first non-Communist PM in Poland in 1989, was earlier three-time member of the Communist ‘parliament, each time ‘elected’ with more than 95 percent of the vote.

Currently, I am working at a greengrocer’s in London. My wife is unemployed in Poland. Two professionals with the highest qualifications in their professions, who refused to lie, forge, and falsify, have been liquidated.




The real vs the virtual story from Poland

My comment on the article Duda vs Trzaskowski: Poland heads to polls in close-run presidential election by Maria Wilczek in The Sunday Times, July 12 2020.

Typical false story.

Both candidates come from the same background, the same group.

The readers are fed fake stories about Poland. There is no real difference between the candidates. It is a difference of appearance only between two actors playing in the same show. The political story in Poland is not the story of competing political and social forces.

The real story in Poland is the story of organised social violence, which was established in the decades post-WWII and continues today. The ‘transition to democracy’ was completely fake. The Communists pretended to give up power. This was only an engineered change in appearances.

It is a folly to think that the most advanced form of dictatorship known in history simply collapsed like a house of cards. The dictatorship continues in a new form.

I am currently working as a shop assistant at a West London greengrocer’s as a result of this continued social violence in Poland. I have a PhD in Physics from a well-known American university and a habilitation.

My parents were long-time prisoners of Communist concentration camps in the Soviet Union following WWII and the Yalta agreement. I share my parents views. Hence there is no place for me at a Polish university. I was fired from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan in 2015. The letter of dismissal did not state the reason behind the decision expelling me from academia in Poland. However, the reason is abundantly obvious.

Małgorzata Głuchowska, pianist and piano teacher at the State School of Music in Zielona Góra, here on stage at the Steinway grand piano in the Zielona Góra Philharmonic 2015; Małgorzata Głuchowska, pianistka i nauczycielka fortepianu w Państwowej Szkole Muzycznej w Zielonej Górze, przy fortepianie Steinway w Filharmonii Zielonogórskiej 2015
Małgorzata Głuchowska on stage at the Zielona Góra Philharmonic in 2015

Małgorzata Głuchowska, my pianist wife was likewise fired from her job at the State School of Music in Zielona Góra in 2015. The authorities conducted a very long and very vicious campaign against our family. Our daughter has been targeted as well, especially when she was in her elementary school. Those criminal activities were carefully planned and coordinated.

Following our submitting of evidence and documents to the prosecutor office, the juridical process has been falsified.

My wife has been fired on the basis of a falsified medical statement, which claimed that she suffered from unspecified delusions and could not continue working as the teacher of piano. She was the most successful piano teacher in her school. We have published our evidence on our website and provided it to the authorities. We also have sound recording of two conversations with an appointed psychologist, to which my wife was subjected under the threat of losing her job in case she did not comply. We have provided the top authorities with the transcripts of the conversations.

The campaign against us has been carried out regardless of the parties in power.

This is the real story of Poland. Elections are completely fake.



Criminal state in Poland unchanged since 1944

This text is a response to another reader’s comment following The Times article Airman held hostage by the Soviets missed VE Day celebrations by Mark Bridge, 8 May 2020.

11 May 2020

The latest of the comments made by the user […] agrees with the Communist/Russian narrative. It presents a narrative which I know to be false.

Quote 1: “The Soviets and Russians have always operated by means of manipulation and intrigue, and for Poland and the Baltic States this has meant that they are almost permanently in a situation of having to monitor and restrain such external influence”

In Poland, the state apparatus and its functionaries are the same people as before 1990. There was no change apart from some redecoration. Their modus operandi is the same as that of the Soviet/Russian state, although this may not be immediately clear to an average observer due to, yes, manipulation, intrigue, and use fake symbolism.

Quote 2: “most of all I would ask readers to consider that this is exactly the kind of ongoing infiltration that the current Polish government is having to deal with and is doing its utmost to eradicate. This alone explains the great popularity of the PIS party currently in power. Previous Polish governments have had their fair share of corrupt pro-Soviet officials and their successors in their midst. If they were not pro-Soviet and espoused that mentality, they would not have risen to their positions in the first place, and so when the Soviet Union fell, these were the only kinds of public officials and civil servants in power available to take over.”

This is false as well. It is another typical element of the fake narrative. The current Polish government is no different from previous Polish governments, except for some superficial symbolism and some rhetoric, which are just a camouflage. As I wrote in a comment to another Times article recently, I was a PiS party member from 2008 to 2010. I saw it from inside.

The leader of PiS, Jarosław Kaczyński, comes from a family privileged under Communism and serving the Communist state most loyally. His father was a Communist party member and mother worked at the Institute for Literary Studies.

Russians do not need “a foothold” in Poland, because Poland is run by the functionaries loyal to the same cause.

My pianist wife Małgorzata Głuchowska and I were fired in 2015 from our jobs at the State School of Music in Zielona Góra and Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań in Poland, respectively. We were fired for who we are and we stand for.

The head of the piano section in the school where my wife worked is a woman from Leningrad, a Russian. This is not an isolated case and not an accident.

The authorities, including prime ministers and presidents, past and present, are well informed about what has been done to us. The campaign against our family bears all the marks of the characteristically Communist modus operandi. There is plenty of evidence. We presented it to the prosecutor office. It is also available online in Polish and English.

History has not ended. It continues. My parents Irena Borkowska (Ostrowska) and Bolesław Borkowski were targets of Communist persecution. They were imprisoned for many years in Soviet concentration camps after WWII. My wife’s grandfather Aleksander Głuchowski fought with the Polish forces in Italy during WWII. When he returned to Poland in 1947, he was immediately imprisoned by the Communists. He died in 1952 at the age of 45.

There is a perfect continuity of the criminal state in Poland from 1944 to this day.



Advanced organized social violence

My two comments following James Marriott’s essay Are we vicious or virtuous when civilisation is stripped away? in The Times, 23 May 2020, devoted to Humankind, a new book by the Dutch writer Rutger Bregman. The second one is a response to another reader’s comment.

Note the absence of Communism from the article. It was probably ignored in the book as well. It is the most advanced form of organized social violence, based on active co-operation of millions. Private life is essentially eliminated. The state is run on the principle of coercive control.

It is also the most innovative organization to-day in developing methods of systematic elimination of individuals from life.

The very concept of the law is empty. The language is falsified and used as a weapon against individuals.

It rewards big and small evil deeds. Family and friends serve as informants. The public sphere is all lies. A great deal of effort is spent on masking violence and protecting the perpetrators.

Acts of violence can be carried out in many ways, not only physical.

The population is divided into prison guards and prisoners.


Philippe Sands failed to even mention that the head of the Soviet delegation in Nuremberg was Roman Rudenko, a state criminal himself.

If I remember the book correctly, he wrote warmly about the Soviet delegation.

He ignored completely the issue of the selective approach to international justice: punish the Nazis, keep the mouth shut about Communist crimes.



Organised criminal actions of the Polish state

The first of my comments on The Times’ article Polish election will not be free and fair, claims European Commission by Bruno Waterfield in Brussels, April 30, 2020.

I would like to remind Mr. Tusk about my letter to him of 20 April 2012 and subsequent letters from my wife Małgorzata Głuchowska. Our family has been targeted by organised criminal actions of functionaries at different levels of state hierarchy. Also ministers of his government received a number of letters from us, detailing violations of law and human rights. Our letters are available online in both Polish and English.

There is absolutely no difference between the Polish state with Tusk as PM or today’s Morawiecki. It is the same organization, the same social violence and protection of the perpetrators.

The modus operandi was and remained the Communist one.



Informers and enforcers

Comment following the article China’s struggle to contain the Coronavirus has exploded the myth of prosperity without liberty in The Telegraph, February 7 2020.

Lech Borkowski 7 Feb 2020 10:24PM

Communist states developed advanced methods of control, some of these methods are more easily noticeable, some other ones less so. They are the original big data systems with detailed information about everyone and a vast army of informers and enforcers. There is no free ride, no free climbing the social ladder. You’ve got to serve the Collective actively to advance.

Occasional mishaps don’t change anything in the power structure.

Having a vast surplus of power, cadres, and other social resources, they can comfortably do what they want. This system also generates plenty of fake stories.

In Europe the Communist regimes pretended to collapse while remaining fully operational. They now pose as capitalist countries with simulated democracy, members of EU and NATO.



Poland’s litmus test shows red

Comment on the article The Volunteer: Jack Fairweather’s Auschwitz spy thriller wins Costa prize, by David Sanderson, The Times, January 29 2020. Polish version: Polski test lakmusowy ma wynik czerwony.

Lech S Borkowski comment in The Times 29 January 2020
Lech S Borkowski, comment in The Times 29 January 2020

29 January 2020

Five years ago, Pilecki’s son and daughter have not been invited by the Polish authorities to the 70 anniversary of the liquidation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. This is a litmus test of who runs Poland. They showed that they indeed are Communists, because only a Communist could do such a thing.

Polish authorities did everything possible to humiliate Pilecki’s children. They contacted them only in the morning of January 27 2015, several hours before the event. They used different excuses. They said that the PM’s chancellery couldn’t find the phone number to Pilecki’s daughter Zofia.

I am pretty sure they knew the number perfectly well.

They called to someone from a non-governmental organisation, trying to obtain Zofia’s number. The official from the PM’s office allegedly did not know the exact spelling of Pilecki’s surname. A lie of course. Then he allegedly asked if Pilecki’s children are still alive and if they are capable of attending the ceremony. Again, a typical Communist lie.

Zofia Pilecka refused to accept this last minute pseudo-invitation, as this would be accepting the humiliation.

Grandson of the Auschwitz camp commandant Rudolf Hoess was invited to the event and participated. Apparently, the Polish government had no problem finding his phone number.

This is not an isolated incident. My wife Małgorzata Głuchowska and I were both expelled from out jobs in Polish state institutions in 2015 for political reasons. My parents were imprisoned in Communist concentration camps in the Soviet Union after WWII. My wife’s grandfather was imprisoned by the Communist secret police in 1947, upon his return from England. He was held as a POW in the Soviet Union in 1940-41. He later fought in the Allied forces on the western front.

I am proud of my family’s heritage and my parents’ unwavering stand against the Communist butchers. Firing my wife from her job at the State School of Music in Zielona Góra and me from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is their act of revenge. I know you read silly stories about transition to democracy in Poland. Those stories are not true.

I will close this comment with reference to Rafael Lemkin, Polish-Jewish lawyer, who coined the term ‘genocide’ and was the force behind United Nations resolution on genocide. His person was completely erased from public life in Poland and other countries as well. I learned about him from the Internet. He was very critical of Communist crimes, hence the erasure.

P.S. Pilecki was not a spy. He was a member of the Polish resistance.




The camp thrives

My comment following the review of tv documentary Belsen: Our Story, review: a devastating and dignified oral history of Holocaust horrors, by Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, January 28, 2020
Lech Borkowski

Great documentary.

I made the following note in 2014:

“The last century, beginning with World War I, has seen an incredible devastation of everything. Here in the east-central regions of Europe, especially in Poland, we live on the civilization cemetery. And I am afraid we have not seen it all yet.

Traditionally, the crimes and criminal codes focus on the harm done to human bodies and material objects. What about the incredible devastation of human souls or psyche, if you prefer the latter term?

Are we out of the concentration camp yet? No, we are not. The answer depends somewhat on the definition of the camp. The old, stereotypical image of the concentration camp is the place surrounded by barbed wire, with watchtowers, guards with dogs and emaciated prisoners in striped uniforms.

The idea of the camp, however, is alive and well also today, The camp has not withered away. It thrives.

October 23, 2014”

My both parents were long-time prisoners of Communist concentration camps in the Soviet Union: my father 8 + 2 in exile, my mother 7 years. They were Polish citizens and opposed to Communism. They both survived, luckily, but the trauma was enormous, especially for my mother. For her the war, which started in 1939, when she was twelve years old, has never ended.

More recently, my wife, my daughter, and I learned, that rumours about the liquidation of the camps were vastly exaggerated. Why and how it is possible, you can read at

Irma Grese, the sadistic Nazi camp guard is not such a rarity. A certain Communist woman active in the Soviet Union and Poland was a sadistic torturer, with particular focus on genitalia. She had a PhD in philosophy from Paris obtained between WWI and WWII.

My wife, a pianist and piano teacher, experienced extreme forms of sadism in her place of work, in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra, Poland, between 2011 and 2015. Standing outside the school building, on the street, you would have never guessed, what is happening inside. In this case the camp guards were several of her fellow female employees. These were not accidental forms of social violence. These were methods meticulously scripted and based on the Communist know-how. We have also learned in the process, that these guards are fully protected by functionaries at the higher levels of the state apparatus, all the way to the top, the PM, the president, as well as the prosecutor office.

It is a mistake to think that the camp exists only as an isolated place, surrounded by barbed wire. The Communist state perfected the idea of the camp and developed it much further. This is where we are today.



I am being liquidated therefore I am

Comment on The Times article Poles protest as MPs debate law would allow it to sack judges who query judicial overhaul by Maria Wilczek, 20 December 2019.

Lech Borkowski, at about 00:10, 21 Dec 2019

The reform, described by the head of the Polish Supreme Court as tantamount to the “liquidation of independent judicial power”

You can liquidate only something that exists. Since there are no independent judges or prosecutors in Poland since 1945, there is nothing to liquidate.

This affair is a fake conflict. In other words, both the supporters and those opposing the law in question are playing together in one team. To the outsiders expecting the confirmation of their own prejudices this story offers a seemingly perfect confirmation of their own knowledge, their views and opinions. Pick your side and cheer for them, the story is suggesting between the lines.

The problem, however, is that the story is fabricated. There is no such thing as an independent judge or a prosecutor in Poland. Poland as a state bound by the rules of law, has been liquidated by the Communists, with the support, participation and oversight of their Soviet masters, at the end of WWII and its aftermath.

My father deserted the Polish Communist army under Soviet control on 13 January 1945 because of the criminal foundation of the force. He was forced to enlist following the Soviet advance from the East into the Polish territory in 1944. The Soviets killed in executions hundreds if not thousands of Polish resistance members, while officially allied with the United Kingdom and the United States. Hence his desertion. He made his choice.

The rule of law and the most basic truth and honesty as leading principles have been eliminated and have not returned to Poland since. The entire state apparatus and the entire public life in Poland is controlled by the same Communists, except they pretend now that Communism, let us call it evolved Communism, does not exist anymore.

Poland is a criminal state with a Communist modus operandi. Therefore getting excited about a law being passed by the parliament is an exercise in silliness. Law is a meaningless concept in Poland. Much ado about nothing.

My wife Małgorzata Głuchowska, a pianist and piano teacher, was removed from her job in 2015 in an action from a Communist playbook. The Polish Labour Code is fundamentally Communist, based on its 1974 antecedent. Communist countries introduced an obligation for employees to be subjected to periodic health checks. In Poland, the Minister of Health ordinance stipulated in 1996 that these routine health checks can be arbitrarily amended by additional unspecified medical and psychological consultations. In plain-speak this means that a targeted person can be easily eliminated from the workforce by subjecting it to additional consultations and by fabricating negative opinions associated with these consultations. Much like in the Auschwitz concentration camp, physician can decide whether an individual should continue as a member of the workforce or should be terminated.

My wife was forced to visit a psychologist under the threat of losing her job in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra, Państwowa Szkoła Muzyczna w Zielonej Górze, Poland . After two 40-minutes conversations the psychologist issued an opinion that my wife cannot continue in her job due to unspecified delusions. Sounds like the Soviet Union, right?

My wife and I wrote texts critical of the violations of law and human rights in Poland. She was the best piano teacher in her school. She also has the misfortune of being married to me, who is proud of my father’s decision to desert from the Communist army.

So, if you do away with the choreography and with capitalist-democratic deceptive decorations Poland remains a Communist country. My wife and I carry on a project on Critical Narrative Analysis, Organised Social Violence and Criminal State. You can navigate to it via my Twitter account.

By the way, the person commenting on this article under a pseudonym is a Communist provocateur on duty.



Smarter dictatorship

Comment on The Telegraph article 30 years after the Romanian Revolution, has Bucharest shaken off the ghost of its communist dictator? by Chris Leadbeater, 16 December 2019.


Lech Borkowski 17 Dec 2019 12:00AM

You write ‘Poland’s emergence from political suffocation was a triumph of collective will and “Solidarity”’.

“Solidarity” was a Communist provocation and a fake opposition. Rather than repeating absurd fairy tales, it would be better to engage in a little bit of critical thinking.

Communism has not collapsed in Poland. Yes, there was restructuring, a perestroika, but the organisation, the cadres, the methods are all in place and fully operational. This was the goal: to create an impression of the collapse of Communism and to continue under the facade of capitalism. A smarter way to run a dictatorship.
