Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Amy Chua, in another article, writes:

"It is by now a commonplace that we are living in a period of radical global transformation. Particularly in the developing world, this transformation has had two watchwords: markets and democracy. [....]

"Marketisation and democratisation each has been the site of massive Western legal intervention in the developing world. Legal work on marketisation ranges from structuring international project finance to drafting market-oriented laws to developing legal regimes that facilitate the transition from command to market economies."

Homily, Archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głódzia

And we belong to the Lord in life and in death

We are still among those "first things" that constitute the basis of our mundane life. Our achievements, joys, failures, desires, dreams. He followed the path of his temporal dynamic, creative, forward-looking life of late Paweł Adamowicz.

Let us open our hearts and minds to this voice of eschatological hope. He sounded very much in the first reading of the Apocalypse of Saint John: "Behold, I am doing new things ... I will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. Neither mourning, nor shouting, nor hardship will be anymore, for the first things have passed away (Revelation 21: 4).
