The left-wing/left-liberals have been, and are, lying a lot about Mr. Orbán’s speech in Tusnádfürdő, Transylvania which was an attack on the neoliberal ideology indeed. The global media presented this as if Orbán had declared his intention to destroy democracy itself. Let me remind everybody that (neo)liberalism doesn’t equal to democracy. The US-based New York Times went as far as to demand EU (!!) sanctions against Hungary in their appalling editorial.
Another typical lie is that “Orbán said that freedom is not the central element of state organisation”. In fact this is what he said:
the new state that we are constructing in Hungary is an illiberal, a non-liberal state. It does not reject the fundamental principles of liberalism such as freedom, and I could list a few more, but it does not make this ideology the central element of state organisation but instead includes a different, special, national approach.
Here’s the full speech in English if you are actually interested in what Mr. Orbán said.
Update: “Illiberális” means “non-liberal” (more exactly “liberal in the wrong way”) in Hungarian, the language Mr. Orbán used to deliver his speech, and nothing else. I’ve just learned that this political term was introduced in 1997 by a certain Fareed Rafiq Zakaria in the USA to mean “fake democracy, partial democracy, Potemkin-democracy”. Apparently hardly anybody knew about this in Hungary. The translator of Orbán’s speech didn’t know or I myself didn’t know either (until a few minutes ago). So the correct translation of the above quote into the English language is to omit the word “illiberal”. In fact Mr. Orbán should have said “postliberal” in that particular sentence. That fits the whole speech much better.
