ABSTRACT
This article’s aim is to outline the stimulators of the division of Polish society. Maintained since the beginning of transformations, a quite stable historical division between post-communist and post-Solidarity camp, ceased to play a dominant role after 14 years. The crisis within the largest party on the left side of the political spectrum and then a collapse of the existing monolith, started significant transformations in Polish politics. The loss of public support for the coalition of the Democratic Left Alliance and the Labour Union has eliminated these parties with further, real struggle for power, leaving competing parties derived from the Solidarity camp. The presidential and parliamentary election campaign of 2005 revealed a new axis of the dispute, which has found its symbolic reflected in two variants of Poland, a “Solidarity” and “liberal” ones. Still exciting, but much less than a few years ago, it remains a matter of vetting, decommunisation and deubekization. The meaning is not lost and the philosophical issues, including the dispute over the role and place of the Church in public life, attitude towards abortion and in vitro, seem to play a dominant role. New lines of “sharing” sets today, first of all proportion to the Smolensk disaster, the country’s modernization, and further integration of Poland with the European Union, in particular the adoption of a common currency, Euro.
