We’ve spent two very productive hours on brainstorming and discussion. There were three lists: for the ones who want to join us in writing articles, for those who want to participate in preparing a dictionary of words that loose their meaning and, last but not least, for those who can advise christian organisations in their countries that may want to cooperate with us.
We were debating about new possible meetings, building up a conservative think tank and even a new christian party for the whole Europe:)
I hope that our cooperation will be fruitful. Together we can do much more!
Do not litter with words
“Poles in Ukraine”.
Poles have always lived in Ukraine. Polish culture doesn’t exist without Lwów or Wilno – the cities that nowadays belong to Ukraine. “It was the revenge of Stalin, we all now it”. Many Poles in Ukraine do not know the language, many do not cultivate the identity. In the old times it was even dangerous to admit it. Many Poles have been sent to Siberia and the fathers of the families killed.
Now the Poles in Lwów and other parts of the country try to cultivate the cultural heritage. Polish government help to renovate catholic churches, palaces and galleries that were once Polish. Otherwise, they would disappear.

“The new elite for a New Europe”
There is a lot of dirt in our country. In the outside but in their hearts, people try not to throw litter about. Not to litter with thoughts, with words. Not to offend. Think positively. There are not only human rights, that we talk about much here. There are also human duties, that Moises and later Christ told about.
Human rights are in danger. We now the situation in Georgia in the eastern Ukraine. If you add terrorism in France, in Belgium than it seems clear that there is a crisis of the leaders, of the elites. They need to be formed from the beginning.

A few words about the divisions in Poland.

„Media in the third Republic of Poland”
Polish media after the fall of communism weren’t free. The “Gazeta Wyborcza” was the only main newspaper. It was founded after the first democratic elections since the war and people expected from it honest and thruthful information. But it defended communists and fighted with democratic opposition and “Solidarność”.

„One eye – blind. Polish journalists after the 1989”
Polish independent media in “new Poland” had a lot difficulties in financing themselves. The net of old communist secret service officers tried to defend its status quo. But now there is “Gazeta Polska”, “Gazeta Polska Codziennie”, other weeklies, One, independent but small TV Republika and Catholic press to defend other values, freedom. democracy and pluralism. And of course, there is internet, which has great power in the modern world.
