Hungary had its shares of bad governments. Some of them were worse than others and the tendency of living in the past dominates the political discourse. In a country with such a rich history, wonderful people and vibrant cultural scene the political class did not live up to the expectations of the people. Too often the rethorics used in political debate are divisive and abusive. Populists and extremists feeding into the debate. I have great trust in Hungarian people to be able to distinguish right from wrong, lies from facts, propaganda from reality. Hungary is Europe by definition and no politician can take it away from Hungarian people.
