Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Poland's Atlanticism rests on three factors:

  1. In the Cold War the Atlanticists were on the right side from Poland's perspective, their opponents were on the wrong one. That's fading and will continue to fade over time.

  2. Russia. That's not likely to fade as fast. There's a very easy way to lessen Poland's inclination to Atlanticism, but it carries a price.

  3. The most vocal anti-American, anti-Atlanticist voice in Poland is the radical right. That affects the way left-liberals view things.
