The Man Who Says Poland Will Be Dead by 2020

Despite his penchant for dressing up as Michael Jackson or Hunter S. Thompson for class, Janek Sowa is absolutely not kidding when he says, as he does to anyone who’ll listen, that Poland will cease to exist. Odds-on favorite? By the year 2020.

“We have an economy that constantly produces good macroeconomic indicators,” the slight, bespectacled, 39-year-old professor and sociologist at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, says from his hotel room in Berlin, where he’s attending a conference. Sowa cites things like public debt, which, according to him, is “not very elevated”; gross domestic product growth, which has stayed at 5 to 6 percent per year since the mid-’90s, he says, and never dropped below 2 percent even after the 2008 financial crisis; and a steady wave of foreign investments. Nonetheless, Sowa says, the average Polish citizen saw “very limited benefits from this economic miracle.”

    Do the bleeding hearts ever ask themselves how immigration can hurt the original country?

    I have very good reason that Poland will be very much alive in 2020.

    Godspeed, Poland.

    Hopefully, the Polish people -will hang Janek Sowa —just for fun.

    Half the population of Poland living in England and Germany doesn’t help. Maybe create an incentive for the natives not to leave would be an idea.

    It’s like thermodynamics. Eventually all of Europe will be universally mediocre.

    ““Look at me,” Sowa says. He cites his publications: four books and more than 100 articles. He cites his full-time university position. “And I make … 800 euros net,””

    He’s a ‘king Sociology lecturer, he’s lucky he makes any money at all teaching that lefty pish.

    the clue is in the word “sociologist”…utter subversive rubbish spawned by the Frankfurt school to destroy the West..along with anthropology, psychiatry etc etc and most of psychology,,,,,look at the names of the founding fathers of all these “disciplines” and play join the dots!
