In its quest to inspire its people in its struggle against Russia, the Ukrainian government has stoked the anger of Poland, an ally that it needs.  The history of the region is full of landmines.

A link from that article has the interesting news, well it was news to me anyway, that Europe now has another monarchy. Though sadly no dynasty seems likely to be established, and the scope for genealogical ramifications appears to be minimal.

Literally the genelogical Island In The Stream there. I welcome the new King Of Poland, who now becomes one of the youngest (around 32 at time of Crucifixion) and oldest (around 2023+ years since birth) in the world.

The article belittling this as a way for the government to push "outdated morals" on people is annoying.  I wonder what morals the reporter considers "outdated"?

Someone on facebook asked if this was actually an impediment for monarchy in Poland. One of the wiser answers was that traditionally, nations did declare Christ or His Mother king or queen of places, but the old monarchs retained their title, but didn't wear a crown, in honor of those who were given the special title.

That's just it. They can't stand that Poland and other Eastern European countries are more socially conservative and un-PC, which would fit right into the new Trump Era.

I wish now that I had not sparked off the continuation of this thread. While I agree that the tone of the article was grating, I would have thought it clear enough what the outdated morals were: no abortion under any circumstances, no contraception, keep women in their place, punish the queers. That kind of thing.

While Trump is certainly not PC or anything remotely resembling it, I am puzzled as to how he can be seen as socially conservative. He has two living former wives, by the second of whom he had a child prior to wedlock. He has boasted of how his celebrity makes women readily available to him. He has six times led companies he owned or controlled into bankruptcy, yet remains a billionaire. He has so far as we can tell paid no taxes for many years, and seems to regard this merely as evidence of how clever he is. He has provably and demonstrably lied and lied and lied in his public statements. This is social conservatism? Are you really sure? If it is, then I for one want no part of it. And I am surprised anyone else does.

He is no conservative.  He is simply anti-establishment, and when the Republican party realizes how he is going to gut every institution including their own, it will be too late.

Whole this case is highly overexaggerated. According to the information about Polish-Russian relations found at https://warsawinstitute.org/ the political situation is really calm. About the case of Poland being more conseravite: yea, so what? Nowadays this pattern of behaviour is highly recommended in my opinion - world went a little too far in acceptance and being tolerant. Strict behavioral borders will help to recover calm and peaceful atmosphere inside countries in my opinion.
