Recently, a number of Facebook accounts of the Polish right wing have been banned from the portal. This, obviously, generated a wave of discontent among the group. I, however, wonder why should we expect a U.S. corporation established with private funds and focused on generating profit to realize some kind of “mission”?
Due to the lack of a two-third majority which would enable Law and Justice to change the Constitution officially and to implement the ideas similar to those of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, the governing party is often hovering on the edge of breaching the Constitution.

If I had to choose from among politicians, who are active now or used to be active some time ago, without doubt I would list Kwaśniewski because of his ability to cross the limits; it can be stated that he is a master of reaching compromises.
I am glad that we have a judge who reminded us of things which are essential to our civilisation. Who is to be just if not a judge?
