This book was written in order to give Poles a sense of style, quality, craftsmanship, and organizational skill, which will result in a respect for their country that will guard public matters and the public good. The less control the government has over the Polish people, the stronger the sense of national and public solidarity will be.
There are many reasons for why Poland losses battles and falls apart in the very moments when the country could, with its internal strength and external situation, again carry itself to greatness. We have witnessed Polish auto-destruction in both the period of transformation around the Round Table and disagreements about de-communization, as well as now with the new generation of unsuccessful combatants that try to eliminate all authority, in the hopes of taking their place on their empty thrones.
Polish auto-destruction is a result of a lack of concentration, maybe even an inability to concentrate in moments of victory, with greed and disagreement in the forefront. The galloping ambition of every victor allows them to believe that a nation of 38 million people can be ruled with the help of cliques, family, and pretorians. Within this phenomenon, there is no sense of the fact that the greatest characteristic of the Polish people is their independence, intelligence, initiative, and imagination - I agree - a bit untamed, but when it is tamed - the Poles will fall asleep. In our country long term plans evaporate from our minds, our sight is weakened, and our eyelids slowly close. Here what matters is what occurs today, tomorrow, the day-after-tomorrow, or the furthest a month from now. The rest is gibberish, a play on words, and common phrases such as, "we don't want communism, we don't want it and that's it." Every politician who has not understood the "and that's it," in the context of the danger and grayness that was communism, does not understand anything about Poles or Poland.
