EN The end of the Cold War changed the identification of national security. In fact, non-military factors also shape security. One of the elements of democracy is a civil society characterized by the activity and the ability to self-organize independently of state institutions. Independence does not mean rivalry with democratic power, but a sense of community and responsibility for specific social problems. Self-realizing groups taking part in various areas of activity are the source of an unlimited number of initiatives: cultural, sporting, educational and other enabling the development of broadly understood values. In civic society, associated groups, unrestricted by the pressure of state power, establish civic organizations or initiatives in which they implement specific ideas and values. Considerations over the essence and regularities of social organizations are necessary for the realization of the common good, understood as the defence of the state.
