ABSTRACT
The article compares the moral and political aspects of Europe with that of Poland. In Europe, there are too many races, nations, classes, traditions, loyalties, ideologies, parties, historical memories, and economic interests. In fact, plurality and variety are the keynote of Europe. However, Poland being strife-torn in itself is quite different. Before World War I, part of Poland belonged to Germany, another part to Austria. People believe that they know the Poles. They think that they are magnificent people and because of this, they are rarely realistic. They think that physical survival alone is not their highest ideal; they are, after all, a Christian nation.
