    This man is not liked for his nationalist politics in Brussels which prefers international globalist communism over nationalism. It seems they are saying international socialism is their globalist agenda by what they are doing in policies. I am old enough to remember when communism failed in Europe and thought at the time, it is over. But it just keeps on being reselected by political leaders.

    Orbán underlined that, in the West, communism remained nothing more than a theory, providing “tingling intellectual excitement [for] meddlesome global utopians” such as Sidney and Beatrice Webb, prominent figures in Fabian socialism accused of acting as apologists for the Soviet Union.

    He recalled how “many members of the Western intelligentsia, artists, writers and politicians – self-proclaimed ‘progressives’ – praised the genocidal communist dictatorship”.

    “It is difficult to believe that it was not obvious to them that those whom the Soviets regarded as class enemies – or as dangerous for any other reason – were being deported to slave labour camps.”


    “Today in Hungary we live in freedom and safety; we have a bright future that we have chosen ourselves – unlike communism, in which we had only stifled energies and boarded-over skies,” he said.

    “We can only have a future if it is both free and Hungarian; only a country of free Hungarians has a future.”

    The number of people killed by communist regimes in the 20th century is estimated at 94 million. Surviving communist regimes such as China and North Korea continue to be noted for their use of censorship, political repression, and arbitrary detention – often in Soviet-style labour camps – to quash dissent.
