Harassment and stalking wikipedialised

Comment on the article You think the BBC is biased? Check out Wokepedia by Andrew Orlowski in The Telegraph, 27 May 2021.

On January 10 2021, The Telegraph published an enthusiastic review of a book about Wikipedia https://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/wikipedia-has-transformed-knowledge-still-looked/

I wrote a critical comment under that article. The text was removed. I posted it later again, splitting it in two.

My comment is available here: https://lsborkowski.com/pol/2021/01/10/polish-wikipedia-and-communist-intelligence/

I was fired from a university in Poland in 2015. A Wikipedia page with my name was created one day before delivery of the letter terminating my employment. I received an email from someone informing about the Wikipedia page. I objected to it but the page was created. To mask the fact that this action was directed against me, a whole set of Wikipedia pages, nearly one hundred of them, were created for all faculty members of the Department of Physics of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The information was basically a copy of the most mundane information from departmental web pages. It was an obvious violation of Wikipedia rules. Part of campaign of harassment and stalking, which was here not only institutionalised but also wikipedialised. Yet, when I let member of the Wikipedia board know about it, he ignored the problem.

Wikipedia is a social medium. Any sufficiently strong group can control large parts of it. Control of entries written in less popular languages is illusory. Branches of Wikipedia in different languages reflect power structures within those languages. Wikipedia is just another tool to shape historical and political narratives.

Comedy International

My comment on the article Alexei Navalny has prisoner of conscience status revoked by human rights group Amnesty International by Marc Bennetts in The Times, 24 February 2021. I posted the text in the readers comments under the article on the newspaper website, where it was immediately blocked and later deleted. Polish version: Komedia International.

The comedy continues. Amnesty International has also failed to discover Dzerzhinsky statues in Russia, as well as streets and cities named after him. I haven’t noticed Navalny or anyone else in Russia protest against their presence. Did Amnesty ask why Russian ‘dissidents’ keep their mouths shut when it comes to the issue of Communist crimes?

Navalny is a state-run project. Promoting corruption as the main issue in a state formed on Communist genocide is an obvious diversion. The genocide is obviously a taboo both inside Russia and among Amnesty activists.

Also, I would like to remind Amnesty, that we informed them about the case of Małgorzata Głuchowska in Poland, pianist and piano teacher, who was removed from her job in 2015. During a routine checkup by the service of occupational medicine, Polish authorities subjected her to two humiliating visits to a psychologist under the threat of losing the job at a state institution. They fabricated a fake statement signed by the psychologist and physicians of occupational medicine, claiming that she was unable to do her job anymore. She was the best piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra. Her students had won most prizes at national and international piano competitions. Earlier, we wrote many letters to state authorities in Poland, exposing their violations of law and human rights.

We have published on Youtube the sound recordings of my wife’s conversations with the psychologist. Firstly, the very idea of the state forcibly subjecting someone to a visit to psychologist is clearly totalitarian. Secondly, if someone is unfit for continuing in their job it is the psychologist, the occupational medicine physicians participating in this operation, as well as authorities in the government and in the prosecuting office who covered up and protected the immediate perpetrators.

I invite Amnesty and other human rights organisations to get enganged with our case. Step out of your artificial bubble and see the real world.

The campaign against our family went on for years. We informed many people in different countries but so far no one in the media or the aforementioned organisations came forward with a request for contact and more information.

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.


Lech Borkowski
31 Jul 2020 2:07AM

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.

Narrative invariance

My comment on the article Polish populists are rocked by liberal surge at ballot box by Maria Wilczek in The Times, 29 June 2020.


The narrative of the public life in Poland in general is presented in the Communist mode. This is essentially the narrative of self-appointed prison authorities explaining their role as guardians of dangerous prisoners.

Elections are presented as revealing tensions in the society between the educated, urbane, younger, more beautiful, world-friendly, in other words good progressive people on one side and uneducated, backward, irrational, prejudiced, xenophobic folks inhabiting mainly the countryside and small towns.

The situation is controlled by providing the entire cast of candidates: the good, the bad, and the ugly ones.

The choice is clear: in the long run the winner must be only one. The one who understands where the history’s arrow is pointing. Forward.

The Communist fake narrative was the primitive story of progress. The killings, the victims are mostly eliminated from the text or fake victims are presented instead. The post-1990 narrative strictly follows the same lines, although the slogans and details vary.

By listening to this story over and over again, people get used to the idea that this is THE story and expect more of the same the next time around. Brainwashing complete, check.

This narrative served the hideous dictatorship. Its aim was to provide justification for the entire system of direct and indirect violence. Today, this story continues to run in Poland.

The time invariance of this narrative and many other Communist invariants, which remain hidden from the media are key to understanding the system of control and social violence in Poland.

Sergei Khrushchev’s obituary in The Telegraph

My comment on Sergei Khrushchev, son of Soviet leader Nikita who ended up swearing allegiance to America – obituary in The Telegraph, 22 June 2020.


Both Sergei Khrushchev and his father Nikita Khrushchev lived at the center of the Soviet dictatorship, built it and served it to the best of their ability. Millions of people were tortured, killed, imprisoned in concentrations camps, expropriated, resettled forcefully, exiled, and had their life destroyed in other ways. And yet: look, no victims!

Obituary suggests that it was the Khrushchev family who have become some kind of victims of Communists. What a ridiculous nonsense.

My grandparents Klemens Ostrowski and his wife Elżbieta had a farm near the village of Buczany in the Brasław county in the north-east corner of pre-WWII Poland. Post-WWII, the Soviet Union occupied eastern Polands with a little help from Churchill and Roosevelt, as a result of the illegal Yalta deal. They were stripped of their Polish citizenship, their farm confiscated by the Soviet criminal state. Even their barn was taken apart, transported several kilometres to the newly installed Soviet collective, and reassembled there. My grandparents and four of their children were imprisoned in Communist concentration camps in various parts of the Soviet Union. My mother was imprisoned from 1949 to 1956 in the area of Arkhangelsk. She met my father there. My father was imprisoned in 1945.

This obituary falsifies history. It repeats the Communist narrative, presenting the genocidal Communist regime not as gigantic criminal organisation, but as an alternative way to seek progress and happiness. Why then The Telegraph does not describe Nazism as an alternative pursuit of happiness and prosperity?

Quote:

But Khrushchev insisted that his father would have understood. “He was in the Communist Party because he believed it would be best for all of us.”

Who are “us”? A Nazi leader and Party member would also say “He was in the Nazi Party because he believed it would be best for all of us.”

Here “we” does not refer to all people of course. It refers only to the subset of the population supporting the totalitarian dictatorship. The rest was eliminated in various ways. Nikita Khrushchev has not changed this policy by one bit. Only methods were altered.

In Poland, there is a similar story. Adam Gierek is the son of the former First Secretary (1970-1980) of the Communist Party Edward Gierek. He studied in Moscow and had a successful academic career. More recently he has been a senator in Poland and a Member of European Parliament. His membership in the totalitarian Communist Party was not an obstacle. Quite the opposite.

Back to my family. My grandparents stayed in their family house after returning from the camps. The Soviet occupiers imposed strict administrative ban on renovating the house and refused to connect the house to the electric grid throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, forcing my youngest uncle, the only person remaining at the house after the death of my grandparents, to move out. This is the genocidal policy at work.

My parents managed to move from zone occupied by the Soviet Union to the Communist Polish People’s Republic in 1956. Here they continued to be harassed by the Communists. Being a son of survivors of Communist concentration camps I had practically no chance to obtain a PhD in Poland, I went to the US in 1987 and received my PhD in Physics from the University of Florida in 1995. I returned to Poland and began working at the A. Mickiewicz University in Poznań. No effort was spared to make my life at work maximally miserable, frustrating, and to force me to quit. The aim was to make my coming to work at the University most traumatic and humiliating. I had to bring my own personal computer to work, because the university would not provide me with one.

Later on an extremely vicious campaign was unleashed simultaneously against my pianist wife, me, and our daughter, who was in elementary school at the time. Communist methods in full swing.

We were both eventually fired in 2015. The authorities fabricated a fake medical statement, that my wife suffered from unspecified delusions and had to be fired from the State School of Music in Zielona Góra, where she was the most successful piano teacher. We demanded truth, honesty, adherence to officially declared law, respect for human dignity, and common sense. We let the top authorities know about this. We also provided hundreds of MPs with information and documents. The perpetrators were protected and promoted. The prosecutor office refused to act and falsified the case.

I was forced to look for work abroad. I am currently working at a greengrocer’s in West London. My wife is unemployed now.

This obituary is one of many texts falsifying both history and contemporary situation. People from the core of the murderous totalitarian power are presented as the good guys who wanted to do good things. This is truly ridiculous.

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.

Falsification in Poland

My two short comments on the article Polish rape victims display their dignity on the catwalk by Oliver Moody in The Times, March 24, 2020.


14 April 2020

This is a typical staged event. There is really no authentic public life in Poland. Parties, associations, mass demonstrations were fake before 1990 and are fake now as well. This is a country of an evolved Communism.

So, while the West believes there was a gigantic breakthrough in Poland in 1989-90, followed by return to authenticity and truth in public life, my wife and I say there was not.

In Poland official state documents are falsified in plain sight and everyone around knows it. It does not bother the state apparatus nor any observers. It is dangerous to ask questions.

We have been fired from our jobs because, among other things, we refuse to participate in the farce of falsification.

My wife was threatened with job loss when she refused to sign falsified examination forms in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra. I refused to falsify exam grades at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.

@LechSBorkowski


25 March 2020

This is to let you know that Małgorzata Głuchowska, a pianist and piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra, Poland, Państwowa Szkoła Muzyczna in Polish, has been fired from her job in 2015 for political reasons, after a very long and extremely brutal campaign, in which numerous men and women participated eagerly. Organised social violence of this type goes unreported in western media.

Communism evolved

My second comment on the article This virus is a shot in the arm for science by David Aaronovitch in The Times, April 1 2020, which I posted today, April 5 2020.


The selection of characters and other elements of the story presented in this article, shows that the article is used as an opportunity to push cultural acceptability and respectability of Communism.

The idea is to present the ideology based on violence and its concomitant multiple methods of inflicting physical and social death to people classified as Other, as synonymous with progress, scientific advance and a positive intellectual adventure.

Both the author and Sir Paul Nurse know the context in which Sputnik appeared. They know that the Sputnik and Soviet military missile program are inseparable as parts of the same whole. They also know about millions of victims of Communism. My uncle Klemens Ostrowski Jr. was tortured by the Soviet henchmen in parallel to the early development of the Soviet space program. He was a young man then. Following torture he lost large part of his consciousness and memory. He was not even able to stand upright. His brain was so severely damaged by torture that he was not able to tell afterwards, where he was held and what has been done to him.

Scientists under Communism were not spared. Educational and scientific institutions were tightly controlled and were weaponised just like everything else.

In mid-1970s my mother’s cousin, an accomplished researcher in semiconductor physics in the Polish Academy of Science was driven out of his laboratory and out of the country. He was a person of integrity and unwilling to bow to ideology and thus the authorities decided to eliminate him.

To point to a by-product of this genocidal system as something positive is absolutely astonishing. And to have it published in the leading British paper is even more so.

I happen to know a great deal about Communist methods of social elimination. They are not thing of the past. My wife Małgorzata Głuchowska and I have been targeted as well. We were expelled from our jobs in 2015. My wife is a pianist and was a piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra in Poland. I was an associate professor of Physics at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland. These methods are alive and well, just like people using them. They deserve careful, critical examination.

Couple of years before being expelled I discovered a group of very interesting dynamic phenomena in driven nonlinear systems. I studied models of resonant neurons. I speculated that the phenomenon of anti-resonance in driven resonant neurons might be useful in explaining e.g. the beneficial effect of Deep Brain Stimulation procedure in patients with Parkinson’s disease.

So in the area of social, political and historical studies, there is plenty to be researched about Communism and its continued, albeit evolved existence.

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 https://lsborkowski.com/pol/.

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.
