From Behind the Curtain

Arthur Chrenkoff once again proves why he's considered one of the top bloggers in Australia - and the world. Just go see his article about how his political viewpoint has changed since arriving here from Poland in 1988.
It dawned on me slowly over time: my old Polish world-view was a sham. Or at least half of it was. The part about the overwhelming majority of my fellow residents of the Evil Empire wanting freedom and democracy was still right. The part about the West being full of... well, Westerners, wasn't.
He's an ornament to both countries, and Poland's loss was definitely Australia's gain. Yet he's not lost his Polish Nationality, just gained an Australian one too.
