Thoughts on Visiting Győr, Hungary

I recently had the opportunity to visit Győr, a small city in northwestern Hungary about midway between Budapest and Vienna. Győr is best known for the Battle of Raab (its former German name) in 1809, where Napoleon’s armies defeated a combined Austrian and Hungarian force during the War of the Fifth Coalition. The French victory at Győr […]

New Article at Medium: “The Overton Turf War: Fidesz vs. Jobbik in Outer Budapest”

My latest Medium article focuses on how far politics in Hungary has shifted to the right: For all intents and purposes, Jobbik is the only real opposition to Orbán and Fidesz.

New Article at Medium: “President Trump Shoves the European Union Out of a Helicopter”

I report on how Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron walked right into Trump’s trap in a new Medium article: Since then, the countries of western Europe have been compliant American satrapies. When the U.S. president says “Jump!,” the British prime minister, the French president, and the German chancellor don’t ask “How high?”: they just jump. […]

My first article is up there now, and it focuses on Hungary’s refusal to accept the European Union’s Muslim migrant quotas: Moreover, expecting Hungarians to take in Muslim […]

How to Moderate Your Habits and Vices

This is a guest post by Kid Strangelove. Kid originally published this article at his own blog, but he deleted the site a while ago so he could focus on other projects. He asked me if I’d be willing to re-post some of his articles on my blog and I said yes. I have never done moderation […]
