“THE FAILURE OF U.S. „SMART POWER” FOREIGN POLICY MAY HAVE LED TO THE CURRENT GLOBAL MIGRATION CHAOS”, By Adam Topolansky

  As the title suggests, some well-intended, but ultimately misguided U.S. foreign policy strategies may have led to the current chaos that is unfolding in the Middle East and is threatening Europe’s integrity. The only question is: was it perhaps intentional? If it was not, the United States can formally call it a blunder and try to correct it somehow. […]

Without Knocking – Long Live Mentally Globalised, Internationalist Germany! – An Essay By Top Hungarian Historian Mária Schmidt

In the third generation the wandering life and rough manners of the desert are forgotten, as though they had never been.

Disgraceful Attempt To Vilify Hungary For Migrant Crisis – Article By Historian Joseph Imre

In moments of chaos the first victim is often truth. When migrants attacked a border point in Hungary last week, injuring a number of law enforcement officers, the media was hasty to place blame on Hungarian authorities for responding with water cannons and tear gas.

Western ideologues’ demagoguery regarding the European immigration crisis is rehashing an old phrase: „useful idiots of the West”.

Out Of Sync And Out Of Touch: The Hungarian Left In Disarray, By Adam Topolansky

These days, we often wonder about the poor communication and policy strategies chosen by the Hungarian Left. Practically all national policy challenges that the leadership needs to tackle (illegal immigration, family-centric social policies, Roma issues, special taxation of banks and multinationals, utility fee reductions, etc.) the so-called Hungarian Left consistently pops up on the wrong side of these issues.

Red Bull Pilvaker: How Rap Music Is Helping Youngsters Connect To Classic Hungarian Poetry – Interview

Budapest’s Erkel Theatre, which coincidentally resembles the Hungarian Revolution with its exactly 1848 seats, was filled up to the brink twice this year as audiences poured in to listen to reinvented classic Hungarian poems. Even more importantly, rap musicians performing the timeless classics of Hungarian poetry take pupils to where many literature teachers only dream of: the youngsters actually grow […]

Making Sziget Legendary Over The Whole World – Chief Organiser Károly Gerendai’s Sky-High Aspirations For Hungary’s Top Summer Festival

-Two years ago, many were saying that Sziget has irreparably taken the wrong path by beginning to appeal exclusively to foreigners. Nevertheless, this year it seems that the talk is not only around how high the prices are or how many boorish Brits or screaming Frenchmen are hanging around the place.
