The mission of the sovereign man

There were certain occupations that were not acceptable for a decent person in the socialist dictatorship of Kadar. Such was the role of the judge, for example, as there was a partisan justice system at that time. It is important to know that even in 1981, it was not possible to win a press correction lawsuit against Népszabadság, because a successful outcome would have discredited the party itself.

In the same way, the decent sovereign man did not go to the police and prosecutor at that time, because these professions were also part of the dictatorship’s toolbox. Of course, it was easier to say all this from America, or even back home afterwards, than to remain a spineless person at the time. Today we mostly wave and forgive.

Last but not least, the sovereign man has a national sentiment. For the sovereign man, the homeland means the national interest and the nurturing of the national culture.

Others prefer conformity and unprincipled alignment with foreign directives. Almost the entire Hungarian opposition today represents this. As further evidence of this, the intervention of the American association Action for Democracy in the parliamentary elections has recently come to light. According to some sources, this organization helped Péter Márki-Zay’s campaign with hundreds of millions of forints.

Several liberal persons of Hungarian origin living abroad are active in the advisory board of Action for Democracy (Dávid Korányi, Charles Gati, Kati Marton). Highlighting the word action is no accident. Action, in other words, is action, the more advanced form of which is intervention. And creating chaos, fooling the people and stirring up trouble are concepts that are only an arm’s length away.

The organization’s most seductive demagoguery boils down to the fact that they “want to do good to the world” because they want the rule of law and democracy. However, according to a well-known publicist, the only difference between this type of charity campaign and the red here, red street scam is that in the latter case, not only the collection of money, but also the fraud takes place right in front of your eyes.

If you have to act for a democracy, it is already bad. As Sándor Márai described, democracy is not a genre that anyone should impose on us.

Either it comes from within or it doesn’t. Democracy comes from two things. On the one hand, from free elections, which is fundamental (consent of the governed), and on the other hand, from freedom of opinion and the press.

Censorship, banning, deleting from Facebook or Twitter is not a genre of democracy, indeed it is dictatorship itself. The opinion is either completely free or restricted. Banning basically means that we don’t want to hear the other person’s opinion. And this is quite terrifying, because the censorship of bigtech companies and the deletion mania of family members and acquaintances who do not tolerate free expression are once again reminiscent of the cursed crisis era.
