When I was twenty years old, in a Polish student magazine, I published a story about a political initiative that hadn’t worked out. I deeply offended some and was highly praised by a few. It was an augury of what was to come.
My political writing comes out of necessity. I write when I see that the prevailing voices in the political arena are misleading or erroneous. Abstract mathematics and control theory (of complex technological processes) strongly influenced my understanding of social phenomena. Some opponents rebuked my mathematical mind as cold, soulless, and inhuman. I was prized for my engineer’s precision and logic on a few occasions.
I was among those Polish political writers who, through their writings, contributed to the peaceful system transformation that finally took place in 1989.
Since 1985, I have lived in the Chicago area. I went through the hard times typical of many immigrants. Working in the service business, I have seen the best and the worst places; I met the poorest and the richest. I have seen and experienced an America that is unknown to most politicians, businesspeople, and political writers.
Some are intimidated by the persuasive style of my writing. Please do not be. It is my way of doing what we all try: a perpetual search for reason.
