The dominant role of international companies that do not care for the welfare of local communities worldwide may be justly called market totalitarianism. In Polish reality, there is little difference between the false promises of 'bright future' that former communists used to grant to 'all' while new capitalist PR specialist promise it to 'every individual' willing to take it.
