Only WWII finally stopped that mad expansion of those barbarians and restored justice after 1000 years of German wars.
And if you go back another 500 years, the territory was in Germanic hands. My point: It's all nonsense. If you argue with what could have been if history had gone otherwise, you can basically claim anything. My initial point is just as valid as the Kaczynski's remarks: They're both moronic, because they are not based on fact, but on emotion / perception, thus being subjective instead of objective.
Case in point: One could say Prussia just "recovered" Germanic territories *LOL.
There's a saying in German which goes like this: "Wenn Kuhscheiss Butter wär..." (If cow sh*t were butter... e.g. farmers would be millionaires).

Why are you turning this into a discussion about land? That's not Kaczynski's, or anyone else's point.
This is an issue about how much extra power is given to countries with larger populations. This is the same argument the founding fathers had about deciding the composition of the legislative branch. There are a whole host of reasons why apportioning power strictly on the basis of population is a bad idea (which is why we have a Senate). Kaczynski has simply used a dramatic means of illustrating this point.
Where did Kaczynski ask for reparations? He didn't, so stop acting like he did.
Can you explain the German phrase? You’re translation was helpful, but it still (personally) doesn’t make much sense with the rest of your post.

The Polish position is far more intellectualy valid than anything the Germans are trying to do in their grab for power.
When has the German position ever been objective? You got to be kidding or delusional!
