Is it really necessery to discuss politics HERE? To me this sentence is rather provocative.
I would not say it is provocative, if we do not practice here, what happens when we get into a deep and meaningful conversation in real life? Most of what i talk about with people is politics, talking about the latest episode of Big Brother does not interest me in the slightest. I do not mean to sound rude just giving my opinion.
The basic reason is that often in the teaching of Polish the teachers repeat what they were taught. The fact that we might be from another culture just means that we should learn the cheap 2D culture they remember from school. Then the cannot understand when someone objects. Like duh!
At one time, Germany and Russia did split Poland for their domains. But that's too long ago.
Russia, Prussia and Austria to be exact. Poland wouldn't exist as an independent country for 123 years from the late 1700s to the end of the first World War
