A report in the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita that the Poles, according to sales figures, no longer enjoy their traditional drink, pure vodka could have been just an anecdote.

Polish & Czech beer are so good though!!!

West Slavic beer I think is even better than German beer!!!

IMO Germans got their good beer from West Slavs!!!

Bavaria is right on the border of Czech republic & is their beer capital of Germany!!!

Even Germans stole Czech beer Budvar & made it Budweiser in the U.S.A!!

Germans in U.S stole Budvar the recipe & name & then made it watered down
&
Then had the nerve to sue Budvar for selling in the U.S

Which is why Budvar is sold as Czechvar in the U.S.A!!!

Slavic - Western Lechitic word “bierka” or “birka” became Fench “biere,” German “bier” and English “beer.”

What an excellent article!

HOMO SOVIETICUS => STRONG STATE

Communism never dies in some countries, simple changes its coat.

The behavioral patterns for the species known as HOMO Sovieticus:

- moral relativism (NO MORALITY)
- learned passivity, helplessness, and the acceptance of state paternalism (SHEEP, SHEEP and MORE SHEEP - create a nation of SHEEPLE)
- the demand for egalitarian distribution as opposed to a merit-based system (DON'T WORK, STILL GET PAID - MONEY RUNS OUT)
- blaming the system for personal failures and laying various claims at the foot of the state, as opposed to relying on one’s self (AVOIDING ALL RESPONSIBILITY - DRINK MORE ALCOHOL)
- an emphasis on security as opposed to a willingness to take risks (COWARDLY SHEEP)

That list, based on a study of socialist states from the time of Soviet rule, describes surprisingly well the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary.

The victors in elections are those parties that promise a strong role for the state in taking care of citizens from cradle to grave.

The legacy of socialism is thus stronger than it might seem.

Well, This article is a tad bit misleading.

As it is most likely Poland that invented Wodka rather than Russia.

But, Piwo has always been a big part of Polish culture back then too!!!!

When I drink Tyskie I am amazed by how it says since 1629 & some other Polish beers I had brewed since 1500's the name might come to me on that one it was a more rare Polish beer sold at a local deli.

........
.......... Beer is much better for you than Wodka.

Remember Beer has a lot of malts, hops, grain it is like a liquid bread fermented to alcohol.

Alcohol in small doses isn't all bad I mean Alcohol has purifying properties.

..
...
.... I know when I drink some bits of GOOD CRAFT BEER I feel healtier!!!

When I drink junk beer I FEEL WORSE.

THIS IS YOUR WORLD THAT YOU MUST DO IT RIGHT.

People are all humans on earth and forget what race, religion, culture, etc., are of first.
What humans have to do the right direction and right things is that what matters.
There are more than 200 countries in this world, with near 7 billion population.

As cold war is all gone---that means it makes no difference of any others' ways of society, operation systems whether of communism or not, with whatever language and religion, that each country (such as Cuba, North Korea, Iran) can be included to deal with many people and exchange on the planet.

Through last 50 years, US HAS DONE LOTS of massacre of humans on the planet. Yet, US policies are unsuitable for all the world nations, as it has too much snooping and hacking programs and making as unstable police state with no real justice truth for its people. However, it even thinks it wants to push other nations to do gay stands against global public as how it thinks, as an example in the recent saying to Russia. It thinks everybody should be like US. Therefore it must not be permitted, because only nations can choose no gay way of stand, then they can not be dictated to do gay stands as another example of US wrongdoing.

The world also has lots of languages and cultures and life styles of many people around the world, but US appears to say there is one thing to make US as the world only thing--the Americanization.

Therefore, Europe is facing critical test, to reject Americanization, including markets that they can ASSOCIATE MORE CLOSELY TO BUY IN and TRADE WITH RUSSIA, that European nations must keep their own things and deal with NATO ACCORDINGLY by not joining, BUT WITHDRAW FROM IT IN ORDER NOT TO DO THE BAD THINGS, as Russian people must tell them so, in order to defend them from US neo-Hitler colonism.

NATO has been used by US to slaughter vast population. YOU Are all humans on the planet and people ought to be obligated with efforts to do all the right things right regarding these matters, to not extend and be with NATO to massacre more people anymore.

What humans have to do the right direction and right things is that what matters = That is -- worldwide audiences, people AS HUMANS AND NATIONS SHOULD JOIN WITH RUSSIA as director TO MAKE THE WORLD WITH EXISTING DIVERSITIES AS THAT IS THE RIGHT future and DIRECTION FOR THIS NEW WORLD WHEN cold WAR IS cold GONE.

The Imperialistic colonial Americanization seems to be a hypocrite tyrant to world communities, which must be deterred and dealt with accordingly, for THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO BE WITH BUT LET GO OF.

Piwo and miod pitny, these were the traditional drinks. You can even make the miod at home ... http://stressfree.pl/jak-zrobic-miod-pitny-do...

Wodka is fine in moderation and as an aperitif. While its well known that Polish wodka is the best in the world, fair margin for example Belvedere ... http://alkohole.poznan.pl/index.php/wodki-czy... and more than likely it was the Poles who first distilled and drank it.

The chronic abuse of wodka though, is as a result of the invasion of Homo Sovieticus. The Soviet abuse of wodka is written in the history of the downfall of eastern Europe in the 20th Century. That is why modern day Poland is turning its back on the water of life and moving on.

It isn't well known that Polish vodka is the best in the World.
