A new bimonthly magazine, titled Hungarian Conservative, is set to share its first publication on April 15. Launched by the Batthyány Lajos Foundation, the aim of this new media outlet is to represent the voice of Hungary’s conservative thinkers at an international level.
According to Deputy Editor-in-Chief István Kiss, “our goal is to create a Hungarian- and V4-centred writers’ forum, an intellectual workshop with members who thrive in an English-speaking environment, and who effectively represent and convey the essence of Hungarian conservatism.”
The magazine’s website emphasizes that traditional Hungarian values are being undermined today due to progressivism.
Today our societies are facing an unprecedented constellation of challenges: the undermining of our social and religious values and traditions, the weakening of the family, and the decline of the middle class, to name but a few. Progressivism, which may formerly have seemed merely a minor intellectual endeavour, now genuinely impedes clarity of vision on these vital issues.”
For this reason, the magazine will build on the “political success and intellectual renaissance of Hungarian conservatism” that Hungary’s political climate has laid the framework for over the last ten years.
The magazine’s website emphasizes the existence and importance of “universal and eternal standards,” which Hungarian Conservative hopes its readers will embrace.
Hungarian Conservative will be available in multiple Western European countries, as well as the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
