Europe must not be afraid

If Europe yields to Russian nationalism, imperialism and colonialism, it will cease to be the continent we know today. It will become a Europe that is defeated and barely able to spread its wings and keep abreast of global players.

Is Russia a Terrorist State?

The answer to the question, is Russia a terrorist state, depends on what one means by “terrorism,” and how that accusation can be proven.

Ever Closer Union or Ever Stronger Union?

There are two futures of Europe. Since the Treaty of Rome, the Treaties have included the ambition to forge “an ever-closer union” among the people (not peoples) of Europe. And then there is George H. W. Bush’s vision of Europe, “whole and free”.

Si vis pacem para bellum

The ancient Romans used to say si vis pacem, para bellum, in other words “If you want peace, prepare for war”. However, this Latin adage conveys not only the basic doctrine of the art of war, but also the principle that guides Narodowy Bank Polski when taking its anti-crisis measures.

Poland Gangnam Style

For the last quarter century, the Polish economy has been an underappreciated success story – underappreciated certainly in my country, the United States.

What happened to European values?

The providers of huge funds feeding Putin’s war machine still lecture Poland on the rule of law and pretend to see no difference between the defence against the migrants invading the EU from Belarus and the help offered to Ukrainian refugees.

The Third Wave of Solidarity

The idea of Polish solidarity gives hope for a different organisation of our part of the world – one that is contrary to the “Russkiy mir”.

Booster shot of realism

The war in Ukraine looks like a fight between an autocracy and democracies but it is not an ideological war. Primarily it is an attempt of Russia to revise the outcomes of the Cold War and re-establish an empire.

What do we owe to refugees?

Putin came for Georgia, came for the Crimea, has come for Ukraine. Does anyone seriously think that if he were to succeed in Ukraine, his imperial ambitions would simply stop there?
