    Well, not really. The Commonwealth, as the name says: Rzeczpospolita - res publica, home for many nations :)

    Frankly speaking it was too good in that commonwealth, that's why it ended up so bad... No religious wars, no strong central power, high percentage of citizens belonging to noble class... well too good to survive around despotic neighbors wanting to expand :)
    Revolutions and uprisings you have only there where there is an autonomy and freedom. If there is genuine terror, nobody will tell a word :)

    and total alcohol drinking, so we are slovians and it is in our blood

    Well, alcohol is a nice suppressor of any reforms and social changes. Great tool of keeping masses quiet when it is of similar cost to coca cola then it is ok, cannot be more expensive... sad but true.

    In 1648 the Ukrainian part of commonwealth decided to join the eastern civilization of the steppe. To survive as a happy state among western latin civilization you need to be big and strong. What we have now we all see... That was the biggest mistake!

    I dont think so, independ war was nesesery to ukrainians, becouse RP had us as the slaves, made Ukrainian lands it own colony - it was the state policy of RP and it reseave a war
    there weare a big proposal from ukrainian nobleman and cossacks to make RP as a union of the 3 nations: polish, luthvinian and ukraine-rus, bat polish magnats dont want to share part of "theire" lands

    Could you little bit explain what you mean there?
    I can not understand your second sentence at all.
    Were Denmark, Ireland, Belgium, Netherland, Ireland, Luxemburg so big and strong that they can survive as a happy states amoung western latin civilisation or you mean somethin else there?

    And the embraces of Tsar were and are better... hehe

    This what you say is false oversimplification of those times. Typical propaganda of later times, done mainly in order to divide two nations, more two religious/regional groups then, by saying that it was a colony and so on. The concept of "nations" that we have now did not exist in those times. We were all servants of Polish King (who was not Polish at those times :D).
    We cannot look and describe those times from the perspective of our times. Peasants were everywhere and in fact they were slaves next to Warsaw and Cracow and next to Kiew or Human, nobody asked them if they are Polish or Rus, if they are catholic, Jew or protestant or unitarian.

    Ukrainian pot, cossacks bowl started to boil due to cutting expenses of registered army initiated by Warsaw being under the influence of some magnats having their lands on Ukraine. True. And also registered cossacks themselves did not want to bring any freedom to native inhabitants of Ukraine then, just wanted to replace those magnats, and of course by percentage, cossacks were only a tiny percent of all inhabitants of the eastern parts of the commonwealth. And frankly speaking all cossacks uprisings started due to private reasons of some individuals that had personal conflicts with each other, some wife, kids, lands etc...

    Well, they are happy being essentially puppet states and buffers between Germany and France. I agree, such kind of happiness would be satisfactory for me if possible in central Europe at all. Geopolitik.
    Here you are big and strong one or you are under big and strong ones.

    This was my intention.

    I'm sorry, but you are wrong there. RP has not Ruthenians (Ukrainians) as slaves. Ukraine was not Polish colony.
    RP was multinational state where nations could lived where they wanted to lived. There were lot of Ruthenians nobles, townsmen. magnates, clergy etc Do you know that Wisniowicki family was Ruthenian in orygin and Khmelnicky was a noble? So, Ukrainian uprising was clear civil war in multinational Commonwealth RP.

    Cossacks triggered that uprising, becouse they wanted to go on war against Turkey, but Polish King Wladyslaw IV was old and sick in 1648. He did not persuade PR Parlament Sejm to did war preparations. This way Cossacks can not grow their register and can not went on war against Ottomans. There also were other questions which led to this uprising. This uprising finally ended for Ukraine and later for RP as disaster.

    RP signed few treaties with Cossacks. Polish tried slove the problems, but Cossacks broken all this treaties. Even union in Hadiach, which was clear three nations union in 1658. So, you can not blame Polish nobles for your own mistakes that you went under Muskovite protection and long time Russian harsh occupation.

    Absolutely false statement. Now when you see that it was a mistake it is good to say that you were forced by somebody else to do so.

    That is exactly what I have told, problem was that there was TOO much freedom in the Commonwelath that some regions became anarchic and lawlessness! Yes, and this is no longer a national conflict in our understanding of today "nation" definition. It is a PERSONAL conflict, both Warsaw and Kiev were victims of this conflict! Weak power of the King, that I mentioned before, was one reason for this. Anyway, Chmielnicki was in fact Polish, as large part of his uprising army. Jarema Wisniowiecki was in fact Ukrainian! So well, this is not so simple and trivial as soviet books from history started to show it.

    Did I say this? Please come back to my previous message and then you will see what did I say. The main reason was cutting the expenses. If the register would not be reduced and some wars with Turkey or Russia would happen in the meantime all would be fine. Cossacks wanted money and did not want to work on farms, that was a cast or warriors. So war was for them, not fields :) And they were dreaming of war and trophies, not freedom for Ukrainian peasants. Just be reliable and realistic for the sake of past times!

    I am sorry, but you again make similar mistake again. Danemark or Ireland are not between Germany and France.
    Czech, Slovackia or Slovenia also are not big and strong states in Central Europe.
    However all they are not puppet states and all they are happy states I suppose.

    Maybe you got on your mind Commonwealth case which was between strong Germany, Russia or Tureky and Sweden.
    Then I can agree in these case.

    We can leave it like that, ok?

    And btw, what mistake? Well, I think this topic deserves some more discussion, and I hope that this board is not suitable for this purpose.
