The other day I watched a political round table discussion where one of the topics was the growth of the extreme right in Hungary. One of the participants noted that Hungary is not unique in having a fairly sizable extreme right electorate. After all, it is enough to look around anywhere in Europe to see the growth of these groups. Another participant, Péter Róna, an economist who spent the larger part of his life in the United States, called attention to a basic difference between the extreme right elsewhere and in Hungary. The significant difference is that Jobbik is the only extremist movement in Europe that is also irredentist.
