European conservatism has led to war and economic stagnation during the 20th century...

???WTF??? What "European conservatism"? There hasn't been a truly Conservative government in all of Europe since 1975!

Got news for ya.

1901 to 1974 is considered by most people to have been part of the 20th century. Look it up if you’re unsure of this.

Redistribution of wealth is theft — that is, socialism — plain and simple. It makes no difference if theft and economic suicide are accompanied by one’s own patriotic national anthem, or if one sings the “Internationale” and waves a hammer & sickle. Theft is theft.

The Jobbik Manifesto that you found so impressive is nothing but a blueprint for old-fashioned fascism of the national socialist variety. It was a disaster for Germany in the 20th century; it would be a disaster for Hungary in the 21st. That a different gang of nincompoops would be in charge of the redistributing makes zero difference to the outcome.

If Hungarians can think of no alternative to leftist Marxian socialism than a knee-jerk reaction toward “rightist” fascist national socialism, then they are stupider than I originally thought (though I never gave them much credit to begin with) and they deserve what they get.

I hate to break it to you, but Francisco Franco is still dead.
