At a captivating event held in the heart of New York on Thursday, American author and President of the Counterpoint Institute, Shea Bradley-Farrell, unveiled a thought-provoking political analysis book centred on Hungary. The book, titled Last Warning to the West, is the culmination of Bradley-Farrell’s extensive research in Hungary over several months and was published under the auspices of the Budapest-based Center for Fundamental Rights.
Bradley-Farrell encourages American readers to turn their attention to the current governmental policies of Hungary,
viewing them as a guiding path for resisting progressive aspirations. The author contends that the prevailing left-leaning ideology in the United States poses a potential threat to American freedoms and draws parallels with Hungarian history as an instructive example of standing against conquering forces.
Director of the Centre for Fundamental Rights, Miklós Szánthó, emphasized Hungary’s historical resilience, noting that the country’s strategic approach has remained constant since the era of Saint Stephen. This strategy, he asserted, prevents various empires from assimilating Hungary. Szánthó further explained that Hungary, during periods of imperial conflict, becomes a buffer zone, but in times of peace and interconnectedness, it can serve as a meeting point between East and West. Expressing rejection towards the emerging logic of a new Cold War and the ‘woke indoctrination’ fostering ideological colonization, Szánthó urged American conservatives to explore Hungary’s conservative solutions.
Bryan Leib, an American Jewish community leader and head of the CASEPAC political coalition, participated in the event, emphasizing the book’s significance. As a television commentator, Leib highlighted key lessons from Hungarian politics,
underscoring the motivational role of robust political leadership and the importance of unity and national identity.
The book presentation, organized in collaboration with the Liszt Ferenc Institute in New York and the New York Young Republican Club, took place at a downtown New York club, offering a unique opportunity for attendees to delve into Hungary’s political landscape and consider its potential relevance to broader global discussions.
