The state, as it is currently understood, comes from the Greek polis. It was a place where a person was seen through the prism of the quality of his citizenship and his political activity. The Greek polis was not a flawless state. However, some ideals which guided and formed the nation’s character can also become useful today. The condition of the Polish state as a polis after World War II is terrible. The authorities of the People’s Republic of Poland kept up the appearance of the continuation of the pre-war polis by partially adopting the law from that period. The idea was to legitimize this authority. In reality this law was adjusted using a foreign model which in Polish law meant the influence of Soviet law.
