The following is an excerpt from an opinion piece written for Corvinák, published on Mandiner.
The report presented by Green MEP Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield, a French politician from the ecologist party Europe Ecologie Les Verts, heaps insult upon insult on Hungary.
The Green MEP’s report is detailed and incoherent at the same time; it shows a shocking bias and bad faith with regard to the legal corrections that the Hungarian government has put in place.
The European Parliament’s offensive against Hungary is not new, but the circumstances have changed: because of the Russia-Ukraine war, European countries are now confronted with much greater difficulties, which, however, have not reduced the passion for punishment of the European Parliament. Hardships do not promote solidarity; they only serve to apply more federalist and progressive pressure on cornered nations. As Saint-Just proclaimed during the French revolution, ‘there is no freedom for the enemies of freedom’, today the ruling elite says: ‘There is no rule of law for the enemies of the rule of law’.
Such an attitude indicates deeply ingrained evilness. By making a deterring example of Hungary, the Parliament presents a sinister caricature of Europe and transforms the EU itself into a terrible formation. This trend is slowly depriving the EU of its legitimacy and calls for the need to seek an alternative model. Hungary’s responsibility is enormous in this process: the timeliness of an alternative European model depends on its exemplary behaviour. The pace of history is accelerating, and the time may come sooner than we think.
