Poland: Revolution Needed to Fight Red Tape

Kinuk thinks a revolution is needed in Poland, at the local government level: “In the 21st century, I am waiting for the wheels of 19th century-style bureaucracy to turn so that I can get my 20th century piece of plastic. In the age of digital masterfulness, my piece of plastic is taking 9 days to travel 600 kilometers within the same country. And I’m being dealt with and spoken to in such a Communist way that is shocking. I want a revolution. I want it to destroy the structure of the Polish local governments. And I want it now.”
