Post-Soviet Domestic and Foreign Challenges

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Having been excluded for decades from the rewards of worldly advancement, our friends [in the post-Soviet Bloc] had failed to cultivate those arts - hypocrisy, treachery, and Realpolitik - without which it is impossible to stay in government. They sat in their offices for a while, pityingly observed by their staff of former secret policemen, while affable and much traveled rivals, of the kind with whom German Social Democrats and French Gaullists could both "do business", carefully groomed themselves for the next elections. Not since 1945 had so many records of communist party membership disappeared, or so many dissident biographies been invented. Within two years the real dissidents had returned to their studies, while the world outside was racing on, led by a new political class that had learned to add a record of outspoken dissidence to all its other dissimulations. We were witnessing what [Czechoslovak Communist Alexander] Dubcek had promised, socialism with a human face. The most urgent preoccupation of this new political class was to climb on to the European Union gravy train, which promised rewards of a kind that had been enjoyed in previous years only by the inner circle of the secret police.

Poland 1914-1931

Friday, September 30, 2011
The author begins with the situation facing the three parts of Partitioned Poland. He cites British Prime Minister Asquith (afterwards Earl of Oxford and Asquith). The Briton recounted the brutalities of the Prussians against the local Poles. Step-by-step, the Poles were not allowed to use the Polish language--eventually the children had to pray only in German. In 1902, more than half the Polish schoolchildren went on a strike that lasted nearly a whole year. Many of them were savagely beaten, and their parents faced arrest and imprisonment. (p. 69). >>more...

New Post-WWI Nations, Polish-Jewish Relations, "Polish Fatalism", Versailles "Injustices" to Germany Exposed

Friday, September 30, 2011
This review is from: Balkanized Europe: A study in political analysis and reconstruction, (Paperback) The author examines the numerous nations that had arisen after WWI, and other peoples (e.g., the Slovenes) who had not become separate nations. He does not seem to use the term "Balkanized" in a pejorative sense.

Mowrer discusses both Pan-Germanism and Pan-Slavism. He quips: "But Bautzen, Kottbus, Zerbst, Dresden, Leipzig, Chemnitz, Torgau, Glogau, Stargard--all these are old Slav names, Germanized...the ancient Slav lands, the valleys of the Elbe and the Oder..." (p. 298). >>more...

The Polish Question, Jewish Beneficiaries of Polish Losses, Encyclopedic Detail on the Polish anti-Prussian Economic Moves, etc

Friday, September 30, 2011
The author is not sympathetic to Poles. He repeatedly regards them (and cites those who agree with him), as too emotional and quarrelsome a people to acquire or keep a state.

Butler alludes to the Litvaks, and the tsarist Russian policies designed to exacerbate Jewish-gentile conflicts, as follows: "The problem of the Jew in countries like Russia and Poland cannot be stated in terms of Western Europe. It is conditioned, not primarily by religious feeling, but by economic conditions...The official Russian policy in recent years of concentrating the Jews in the Western provinces led to a large influx of Russian Jews into Poland (general called `Lithuanian Jews' [Litvaks] though they do not for the most part come from Lithuania), who compete with the original Polish Jews, and have markedly lowered the standard of living...They held, and hold, four-fifths of the trade of the country in their hands, and control a large proportion--how large is not easy from the available statistics to determine--of the capital invested in Polish industry." (pp. 124-125). >>more...

An Eye-Opening Expose of Jan Tomasz Gross and the Agenda behind Him,

Monday, September 26, 2011
This Polish-language book is titled: 100 FALSEHOODS OF J. T. GROSS ON JEDWABNE AND THE JEWISH NEIGHBORS. It is nothing less than a mini-encyclopedia of prewar Polish-Jewish relations, and it's a shame that this work hasn't been translated into English. The objective reader, whether or not in agreement with Jerzy Robert Nowak, will have to recognize that Nowak has written a much more scholarly book than any of the Polonophobic screeds of Jan Gross. >>more...

Poland and the Poles / by A. Bruce Boswell...with Twenty-One Illustrations and Three Maps

Friday, September 16, 2011
Boswell was a research fellow in Polish at the University of Liverpool. Owing to its scope, I can only touch on a few items.

Even when subject to the Partitions, the Poles continued to affirm human liberty: "In fact, Poland, in 1794, was the first nation outside Western Europe to declare all its peasants free. This was not done in Prussia til 1823, in Austria till 1848, and in Russia till 1861." (p. 84). >>more...
