Rytualizacja w języku władzy komunistycznej PRL
Ritualisation in the language of Poland’s communist authorities
In 1944–1989 Poland’s communist authorities introduced a number of secular rituals, which — expressing new values — were manifested by relevant gestures and predictable vocabulary. The rituals served an important propaganda function. They were to legitimise the new government, strengthen its prestige, integrate party members, build society’s trust.
