Patrick J. Buchanan speak outs on the pushback in Hungary against the secular globalists of the EU, Soros, and the US. He is spot on. This is spreading in Central Europe, and the so-called Visegrad4: Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia are all leading the way for traditionalist/nationalist alternatives to the traditional culture-destroying paradigm of open-border globalism embedded in the elitist institutions found in much of the EU and the US (not to mention the total rejection of traditional European culture in higher ed).
This shift away from secular liquid modernity is fraught with peril. But if this traditionalist/nationalist pushback is imbued with authentic Christian social ethics–as articulated by Catholic Social Teaching–it is much preferable to the authoritarian secularism that grips the cultural institutions of the EU, the US, and the rest of the West.
St. Elizabeth, Pray for Hungary. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.
