Hungarian Constitution Invokes St. Stephen, Abolishes Abortion

Editor: Of course the EU will want to look into this, ehem. Forget about sovereignty. With a special h/t to Alaric who also posted this on FE.

In Hungary the powers of progress have had the political upper hand. They used the opportunity of the hour to renew the land. By Lajos Weberstein
The Crown of St. Stephen

( The decadent EU does everything to destroy Marriage and Europe and capitulate to the stone age.

Actually, it's not everywhere that Europe is being laid flat by progress.

So the Hungarian Parliament has ratified this Tuesday a new Constitution.

The Constitution was adopted by a two-thirds majority of the national government party 'Fidesz'.

'Fidesz' are the representatives of the anti-Democratic, old and ex-communist Hungary -- and their accomplices in decadent Europe -- they are a thorn in their sides.

It is also the case that this party took part in the fall of the Communist Dictatorship.

After the introduction of the new constitution, the stone age opposition of the Left seethed.

Because the text is such a clear rejection of political masochism, it begins with the words:

God, Save Hungary

National Commitment

We, the members of the Hungary Nation, assert our responsibility to say the following for all Hungary at the beginning of the millennium:

We are proud of the fact that our King Stephen, the Saintly Patron of the Hungarian State for a thousand years had built a secure foundation and placed our Fatherland in the line of Christian Europe.

We are proud of our forebears, who persisted for that, who have fought for the freedom and independence of our Land.

We are proud of the great spiritual accomplishments of the Hungarian people.

We are proud that our people had defended Europe for a thousand years and whose common values were enriched by their talents and enriched its industry.

We recognize the role of Christianity in the persistence of the Nation.

The Constitution protects the institution of marriage as a life in common between a man and a woman as well as the family as the foundation of the nations progress.

The constitution promotes the decision for to have a child.

The defense of the family was the ruling concerning the main focus of the law.

The anti-child opponents wanted to put forward their opposition to unlimited respect for human life.

Actually the new Constitution said:

"The value of human life is unfathomable. Every person has the right to life and human value; the life of the foetus is protected from conception to birth."

The new Hungarian constitution contains also a debt limit, unlike any other European constitution has.

That's pretty great! Good for the "Hunkies." When I was in the Army Security Agency (now MI) in the 60's, they were my primary target.

Under my watch they behaved. We had some transcripts of intercepts from 1956 that were pretty moving as they radioed for help from the U.S., thinking we would come to their aid.

I suspect that there are still many there who aren't fond of us because of that. But the Suez war was going on at the same time and the Cold War was at its height.

We somehow gained possession of St. Stephen's Crown after WWII. We ultimately returned it to them after the fall of the Iron Curtain. So that must have raised us in their esteem a bit.

When can I move to Hungary and get out of this God-forsaken hellhole, the USA?

Kathy said...

Oh, I want to move to Hungary! I can see a lot of pressure for them, though, refusals to trade and such. And the press is going to hate them, children in our public schools will be taught what a horrible backward oppressive country they are... but..What an awesome thing! Hopefully other nations will follow their example.

Please read the whole document before making fawning statements in praise of it.

Yes, it purports to be "conservative" and "family-friendly" (by the way, it does NOT actually outlaw abortion), but it is no friend of the Anglo-American vision of ordered liberty and small government. It's multiple times the length of the U.S. Constitution, and includes such "rights" as the right to free education, the right to housing, the right to employment, and even the right of people to participate in a nationwide state-run common health insurance pool (!) - a.k.a. single-payer government health care.

Viktor Orban, the head of Fidesz and prime minister of Hungary, has stated before that their vision of "conservatism" is one that sees the state as the central driving force, representing a strong statist Continental tradition, very much opposed to Anglo-Conservative limited government.

I'd settle for an authoritarian government to smash the Reds first.

Kathy said...

Yeah, I did read the whole document since making my first comment, well, not every word. I guess it's not my ideal constitution... I'm not sure how they are going to encourage families and childbearing when they're going to have to have super high taxes to support the pension system, etc. I guess we'll see. I do like how children are supposed to support their aging parents, however. But is the American system necessarily the ideal one? How well have we done? Maybe someone could propose a Constitution Writing Contest.
