Description

In Poland, a nationalist party has been in power for four years. We went to Warsaw, the capital, and Gdansk, the birthplace of a movement that brought down Communism, to see how this government has changed democratic institutions.

Guests: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, and Clare Toeniskoetter and Lynsea Garrison, producers for “The Daily,” spoke with Jaroslaw Kurski, a newspaper editor; Magdalena Adamowicz, a politician and the widow of a liberal mayor who was murdered; and Danuta Bialooka-Kostenecka, an official with the governing Law and Justice party.

What fuels the "wars", lookup the defiition of it first, are the strangers to the csse that listen to folks that hurt out there for one or other reason and pin this to politics. Look at the parts that the government did positive, look at the still comunist courts systems that they try to change the benefits to single parents, corruption that the "liberals" bring, just dont have a merit to come and talk to Jarek or Magdalena and determine the state... pushing the impressions, not looking at people that work hard and try to make a living there

How is liberalism "one view?" That makes no sense. Liberalism is whatever you want to believe. The others are not.
