It's funny how people see everything through one dimension. In Poland they are fighting the left because for so many years leftist leaders were
horrific to the people. I don't think corruption in government is something that only occurs on the left. Power corrupts. It has nothing to do with
political spectrum. Regardless of what type of government you have, power will corrupt and corruption can make people's lives miserable.
In America, my country, people have just as much freedom if not more than Poland. The people in America are free. Especially the people in power.
The American people in power are free to pass many laws creating cartels and monopolies because that is what the American people are paying for
through the influence of lobbyists. In America all our BIG money free-markets have been shut-down by special interests looking to make a killing by
rigging the system.
The video says the people in Poland are very happy. Let's see how happy the people of Poland are with laissez faire capitalism 30 or 50 years from
Maybe the people of Poland will figure out a way to prevent their country's elites from rigging the system. Good luck with that! The people in power
loath the common man. Power corrupts absolutely. People in power lose all morality when they are drunk with power. This is why the leaders of the
communist party failed.
Until this fatal flaw in human nature is elevated to the point of common recognition NOTHING will change. Right wing, left wing, it doesn't matter.
Poverty kills whether it is poverty of spirit or poverty of material wealth.
