Under Gyurcsány, we used to have some definitions and everyday practices, which seem to be on the verge of extinction today. We used to have interest reconciliation; wage offers were usually accepted even at times of severe financial crises. Our social achievements, our constitution, the defense of minorities, anti-segregation laws in the educational system and the office of the ombudsman were all respected and honored. And now all this hard work, our democratic credentials are threatened by the current prime minister. Back in those days it was self-evident that the guardians of our democracy, such as law enforcement, should be respected and not vilified if they were putting their own lives at risk for our sake. That is even more valid if we know that the group of people against whom the police were trying to defend us were none other than a bunch of thugs. Were there any mistakes? Yes, regrettably, there were. But we also used to have the right institutions to investigate them, which now no longer exist.
No question that the republic was respected and that the quality of life was higher. Orbán destroyed our citizenry, our legal security, and he despises those who dare to take an opinion other than his own. Gyurcsány was received in London, Washington, Paris, Moscow, Beijing and Berlin, he could also host many of the great leaders of the world. Unlike Orbán who has become a pariah by now. In his last moments as prime minister Gyurcsány could still use his authority to help the country by negotiating 1 billion euro for development, whereas the current PM is constantly being humiliated while being the current president of the EU.
