We are glad to bring the winter edition, Volume 3 Number 4, of our quarterly magazine to you. ‘Tis the season, and thus you will find two special Christmas-themed pieces in there. However, the rest of the publication contains the usual insightful commentary on the social and political events of the day, from a conservative viewpoint.
Miklós Szánthó, director general of the influential Budapest-based think tank Center for Fundamental Rights, contributed his article titled ‘No Country for Woke Men’ to our ‘Christianity Today’ section. The issue he covers in his writing is permanently topical and is not about any specific incident. Rather, it is a comprehensive overview of the pervasive Woke phenomenon; as well as a description of how it is directly opposed to Judeo-Christian values and thinking, what the philosophical-historical background of Wokeness is, and what Hungary is doing right in its efforts to combat it.
In the current affairs section, you can read about the recent Polish election which took place this autumn,
and turned out unfavourably for the conservatives of Europe. The analysis of the elections itself, as well as its possible consequences, was eloquently written by Michael O’Shea, a Polish-American writer and researcher, currently a visiting fellow at the Danube Institute. Meanwhile, another recent election in the Central-Eastern European region, the one in Slovakia won by Robert Fico, is covered by Péter Szitás, a research fellow also from the Danube Institute.
The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war has been framed as a war between democracy and autocracy, even by incumbent US President Joe Biden in his famous speech in Warsaw, Poland in March 2022, right after the start of the Russian invasion. In our latest print issue,
political scientist and military historian Bruce Oliver Newsome goes into what the cold facts of history and statistics tell us: do democracies or autocracies win wars more often?
One of our Christmas articles is by Sándor Lénárd, head of the Center for International Law at Mathias Corvinus Collegium, and is titled ‘It Is Time for Christmas to Save the EU;’ while the other Christmas article was penned by Ádám Darabos, research fellow at the Danube Institute, and is titled ‘Striving for World Peace and Mature Democracy: The Lessons of Pope Pius XII’s 1944 Radio Speech on Christmas Eve’. Last but not least, the issue also includes an interview with Israeli historian Gadi Taub, conducted by David Martin Jones, for your reading pleasure.
