Macrostructural conditions for political opinions and attitudes of Poles


Social changes which have occured in Poland during the nineties created new conditions in which Poles are able to establish their relationships with small groups and various social circles. The empirical research carried out in 1995 indicated that the family continued to be the most important social group with which Poles identified themselves. Nevertheless, a new phenomenon was discovered that group affiliation shifts to small groups, like these consisting of friends and colleagues. Another new phenomenon is the emancipation of some people from social microstructures. The transformation of the family, the emergence of the civic society (for which groups selected in political elections are more important than groupings based on kinship) are the main reasons of this process. The type of microstructure orientation (i. e. an orientation on family, friends, colleagues, and an individualistic orientation) adopted by an individual has an impact on the person's attitudes and opinions. These attitudes and opinions regard a vast number of problems pertaining, among others, to economic, social and cultural changes in Poland. According to the research, a distinct relationship between interest in politics and the orientation on microstructures is also clearly pronounced.
