A few thoughts about history and current situation in Poland: https://polishorigins.com/blog/such-a-pity/
"I often tell people that the last 30+ years since we got rid of communism we are in the best period of our history in centuries. We had communism and the actual occupation of the Soviet Union since 1945. Before there was the second World War with its atrocities. We had a short 20 years period of independence between the two wars but with the threat from the Soviets, Germans, and many internal political issues. Before that, for 123 years we were under partitions (or even longer if you take into account that the first partition took place in 1772 and was followed by two more). Before that, we had lived for centuries in the feudal system where the vast majority of people were serfs, which was not much of a big difference from being a slave if you look at the “rights” and lives they had."
