  1. Mr. Mazurczak made a mistake. Kazimierz Pułaski was "the father of the American cavalry", not Kościuszko.
    I also think that allowing Jews to keep Yiddish was a fatal error. And permiting that hassidism to spread or even exist was a deadly folly.
    Too much tolerance is unhealthy.
    In Germany Jews were very German. In France- very French. In America- very American.
    But in Poland Jews were...well, very Jewish. And look how it ended.
    West had smarter approach.
