A Good Hungarian

 The New Republic

Oppression is oppression no matter what the form. The Hungarian Prime Minister gets it right.

On March 15, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán stood before nearly 100,000 of his fellow countrymen in Budapest and declared, “Hungarians will not live as foreigners dictate.”

Drawing an explicit connection between the European Union, which Hungary enthusiastically joined in 2004, and the Soviet Union, which brutally crushed a Hungarian revolt in 1956, Orbán said, “We are more than familiar with the character of unsolicited comradely assistance, even if it comes wearing a finely tailored suit and not a uniform with shoulder patches.”

Too many bureaucrats in Brussells think they know best about managing disparate countries across the European Union.

    “oo many bureaucrats in Brussells think they know best about managing disparate countries across the European Union.”

    Do they really?

    Another good Hungarian was Peter Mansfeld. Very few have heard of him outside Hungary, although he is probably as much a national hero as Jan Palach is in the Czech Republic.
