There is a nation in the world whose members, in matters of unity and togetherness, perceive state boundaries as no more than chalk lines etched on asphalt.
There is a country in the world where countless individuals seeking prosperity and stability still draw inspiration from centuries-old traditions.
In the heart of Europe exists a ‘political laboratory’ where conservative solutions are actively applied to address globally relevant social issues; solutions that are often rooted in robust theological and philosophical foundations.
There is a country in the world whose modern conservatism is increasingly being considered in many parts of the globe something worth discussing, and a viable alternative to rampageous progressivism.
There is a country in the world where day by day, something unfolds that holds the potential to shape this alternative.
That place is Hungary.
And there’s a magazine whose online columns—Diaspora, Culture and Society, Politics, Philosophy, Interview, Opinion, Current—report on developments related to these realities every day.
This magazine is Hungarian Conservative.
And some exciting news we would like to share:
in 2023, the English-speaking internet audience demonstrated a keen interest in these stories, increasing our organic reach by over 200 percent compared to the previous year.
Our success is pretty much owed to the hard and devoted work of a stellar team. Ildikó Biró’s professional linguistic oversight ensured the publication of over 3,000 high-quality articles in 2023. Laura Lábady’s translation efforts bridged language barriers, bringing Hungarian stories to English-speaking audiences. Márton’s expertise rivals major media pundits, while Ádám Bráder’s up-to-the-minute news pieces keep our readers informed. Kinga Kincső Antal conducts vibrant interviews anytime, anywhere.
Furthermore, we’re grateful to our guest authors—Ildikó Antal-Ferencz, Fr. Mario Alexis Portella, Rod Dreher, László Veszprémy, László Bernát Veszprémy, Sáron Sugár, Dávid Nagy, Lili Zemplényi, Georgii Karpenko, Zoltán Pető, Artúr Köő, Péter Sasvári, Levente Greczula, Rudolf Oblat and Botond Szabó and many others who contributed insightful opinions, reviews, and analyses to Hungarian Conservative in 2023.
Hungarian Conservative online would hardly make a difference without a print editorial office that ensures the elegance and timelessness of the brand. So we would like to say a huge thank you to editor-in-chief Tamás Magyarics, deputy editor-in-chief István Kiss, managing editor Ildikó Geiger and contributing editors Éva Szabó and Thomas Sneddon, as well as our honoured editors-at-large John O’Sullivan and Gyula Kodolányi.
Building on the hard-earned trust of our readers, we are planning on introducing even more interactive and focused content in 2024—from evolving regional and global geopolitical dynamics to the European parliamentary and US elections, there’s much to explore in the coming year.
On that note, I wish all our readers and the staff of Hungarian Conservative a New Year of happiness, prosperity and health!
