here is a question

what would the policies of a non-racist, non-corrupt, but non-imperial nation state government in central europe look like: especially concerning
the syrian refugee crisis ?

bearing in mind that such a government has to be popular with its citizens
and be working for the citizens best interests

Heath,

you are right.

German taxpayers now come up with 30-50 Bio. Euro per year for war
refugees (and tolerated illegal migrants from many countries), which is
more then the total defence budget (!) or 2-3 times what the state
invests for education, research and innovation..

Those regime change policies / arab spring movement-wars in Irak,
Libya, Syria.. were started by the US, UK and their allies, like Saudi
Arabia.
Europe should not support those covert war forms.
But politicians like Merkel first deliver weapons and then kill the
German welfare state producing right wing parties in Germany and in
other european states.

Oliver

here in the United Kingdom (UK) [the key partner in the United States
of
America Empire (USAE)], its seems unfair to expect the Hungarian people
to
solve the Syrian refugee crisis, which has been caused by the actions
of
the USAE, while the Hungarian people have had no material benefits from

these conquests

the UK has a long history of imperialism and dealing with both the
benefits and negative effects

on the other hand, i don't see Hungary in this mode

labelling non-imperial nation states as racist or corrupt instead of
attacking the much larger organised criminal network of the USAE seems
dis-proportionate

the same goes for expecting Swedish people to integrate 100,000s of
north
Africans - its wrong to denounce them as racist


perhaps of interest

janos,

it is weird to read this, but isn't it clear that these things are
happening?
and isn't the really worrying thing that hungarians have voted for
fidesz
(party, leader, and candidates) despite the likelihood of this kind
of
manipulation of public opinion?

i don't want to sound fatalistic, but the worrying thing is that
while
telling the truth is still important, it does not seem to make much
of a
difference...

ok, yes, we have to keep on telling the truth, searching, telling...

excuse the fatalistic glitch.

The journalists believe the anti-migrant messages often come

from the government. People who work on stories directly involving
Orbán
receive a list of keywords to use. "Sometimes the editor will come

We do not know who is on the other end of the phone," said one.
