POLSKI


A STUDY OF POWERS



As a Pole born in 1959, I have had occasion to observe the decline of both main political systems of the 20th Century: first the Eastern, and next the Western one. This unique cognitive position gave me the opportunity to verify the fundamentals of present political philosophy and to formulate some new ideas, which I present here in the following four papers. I hope they will form a base for fruitful discussion.

Arthur Schopenhauer wrote that: “Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident”. Let's see, at which stage I am with my ideas. This was my main reason for creating this page.

GLOBAL AND LOCAL GAMES

Presentation of the limits of applicability of both market and administrative solutions. Capitalistic models may be optimal in some areas, socialistic models in others. Outside the appropriate areas, forcing any ideology should be treated as a sign of ignorance or intellectual laziness.




WHAT ABOUT DEMOCRACY?

A critical analysis of modern political solutions and stereotypes. Demonstration of the uselessness of various institutions and political virtues, and usefulness of alleged pathologies. Presentation of how unstable democracy is. Described mechanisms of its inevitable and spontaneous disintegration.




ON THE NATURE OF POWERS

Political anthropology, taking the individual as a base, and not institutions of power or concepts of community, revealing the façade character of the modern state authorities, which give way to extraterritorial and intercultural spiritual and financial powers.




A WORLD WITHOUT AUTHORITIES

Presents a possibility of organising society without referring to the position of aggression, domination, or exploitation among the people. Practically all present authorities are described as theoretically redundant, substitutable by mechanisms of self-regulation and automation.
