I myself am from Poland.
It may not be the biggest (but compare it to Germany), richest or the most important country in the world, but the people seem to be very into
conspiracy theories. Also, the things that are happening here are NOW in the working: on a small scale.
It is a result of our historical background:
Poland has been a Peoples Republic for 50 years, the totalitarian system made the people live in paranoia, the danger of being arrested, the traitors
were everywhere, ready to give you away (usually without a reason) to the militia. The ZOMO could storm in your house and beat you up with police
The incidents of 1989, when the round table was organised and the USSR has fallen, actions of Solidarność earlier were the beginning of a conspiracy
most of the Polish are aware of.
I’m a member of an intelligent family, my parents’ aqquintances often had connections with Solidarność or the socialistic government. These people
were involved in the conspiracy and today aren’t hiding their past.
The fall of socialistic system in Poland was actually planned by just a few people, including Adam Michnik. Today he is trying to take complete
control over the media- thus control of the public. Once the conspirators were members of the Polish Workers Party or the Secret Police, today they
made themselves a reputation of fighters for democracy. This reputation is falling apert, the public is much more aware.
Noone doubs that there is something going on on the top, it’s a known fact that there’s a conspiracy going on though this is never mentioned in the
news, and officials, of course deny this is going on.
The whole country is aware of what is happening, they know a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine is taking place, but what’s the saddest, but also
the oddest, people won’t react. Polish are interested in conspiracies, but can’t fight them. Seems the polititians achieved their goal: the country
has will so week, noone ever will find interest in their skeems.
That’s why among my friends and co-students conspiracy theories are mostly taken seriously and are considered one of the explanations for processes in
our country and the world.
Polish attitude to conspiracy theories always helped me to spread information about what I read here.
What’s actually easy to understand, most people don’t believe in MJ-12 and other UFO-gov contact conspiracies because of the fact this doesn’t really
regard them. But they do believe in Echelon and Illuminati conspiracies, also others not including aliens.
Illuminati conspiracies are important to Polish, about 40% of population was against joining the EU (this includes me), because it is believed that
the Union is just another masonic attempt to set up total globalisation.
The new word for globalisation: NWO speaks to these people and they are likely to believe that UE is controlled by masons- the Illuminati.
Polish still live in the socialistic paranoia, though now they live in a “free” country. They still feel watched and insecure, likely to believe that
Echelon is observing them. They are, of course, right. Nothing ahanged after the round table and nothing will, they are not free, as we all are-
watched and controlled all the time… When I tell them that, they believe me.
I know that conspiracy theorists are not always taken serious, but here the situation is a bit different. As for I’m new to conspiracy theory I expect
that here it will be easier to conduct research.
For now, I haven’t published much about the conspiracies, if not to say nothing, but for some time I’ve been involving others into this. With some
success- they are concerned about what I tell them and they treat this seriously. But unfortunetly, I don’t know any hardcore conspiracy theorists
living in Poland, seems there aren’t any, though the entire community, by seeing what is going on around it, is likely to believe in what we believe.
