Is my generation the lost generation? We were born in 50-es, 60-es or 70-es and raised during communism therefore we never learned the virtues of capitalistic society which we live in now.
It is hard to imagine how much Poland changed during the last twenty years. One can argue, the whole world changed, the progress is much faster now than ever before but... Poland went not only through the civilization progress like almost any other country but it drastically changed its economical system.
Economical progress was delayed during the communism in Eastern Block while in the same time life became so much easier for Westen European societies. Therefore, when Eastern Europe finally opened their boarders, when the Berlin wall felt and when we joined the European Union, Poland had to do much bigger step to even up with the rest of Europe.
