Radicals in Power and the Transformation of Poland

At a time when it has many reasons to celebrate the great achievements
of its post-communist transition, Poland is experiencing a political crisis
whose social, economic and international consequences are difficult
to measure. Since its return to power in the fall of 2005, the right has
been questioning the transformation model followed so far. According
to the right, after the 1989 “Round Table” negotiations, the leaders of
the old regime, with the support of their allies, the moderates from
Solidarnosc, have maintained a large part of their power. Together they
have dominated the public administration, they have filled the key
positions in the army, the police, the media and the economy, corrupting
and weakening the state. Therefore the confrontation with the
former communists and their allies represent a major stake for the
radicals. What is at stake in this confrontation is not only a struggle to
overcome the pathologies of the transformation process, but also the
beginning of a real institutional and juridical revolution, together with a
moral order founded upon a clear distinction between right and wrong,
good and evil.
