and nato, it's very hard to say where the escalation stopped. is it a mistake to open up? is that a pandora's box? if you want to be ready for the next pandemic, you figure out this, the bottom line we can take on us politic in society. ah, all the new party i thought that my journalistic camera, 44 years ago in 1985, i was appointed the most school bureau, chief of hungary and television. those were the board by 12 years.
nobody at that time wanted to go to the soviet union. and when i came back home, communism was over in hungary. it was a completely new and strange world. all troops must be withdrawal for important that everybody in hungary had great expectations about democracy and about changing to capitalism. and that that time hungary was in the forefront of the changes hungarian society, created legislation model type artist and new parliament, elected by the people and old all the institutions of democracy were billed when the old bond government came to our in my view,
it market sharp change i would say it is much closer to dictatorship, where the exclusive only ideology is to retain power at whatever cost the you want to do the height of 120 and he sent or not or not on the load. i spell out your buffet as the guys asha are and i'm made the on actual we did as a frequency on got as if they get and i don't thing that we all are bound to be voted out of power. no prices is high enough. just he wants to be in power. that
is his only goal in life. this is why i think he's so dangerous for getting to the prime minister all came to power for the 1st time. very young, still in his thirty's, in 1998. when he lost the elections. i think he made a while to himself that he will never let go with the power to keep them keep up with me. i mean the yeah. or by the lord the lecture me was defeated in 2002. that the reason why he was the election because he didn't talk to by the media a 2010 when feed us came to power with
a 2 thirds majority. it meant that politically, he can do anything he wants because he had a full even constitutional, strong position in parliament. my daughter, my going on with if you wanted he could have introduced a kingdom in hungary because of the process you saw majors, you can override the constitution. you can change the, the car, the lows, you can do, whatever you want. they changed it within 24 hours. so when he came to power in 2010, i think he had strategic plan off not letting go for this power. and the more that you were growing dressy with respect, sir, it's not for us is not free here, less free and hungry 1st before he occupied the institutional system, prosecutor's office. therefore there can be no high level investigation started in
government with his corruption. and of course, he needed to conquer the media because he understood that the media is the 4th key element of any democracy or power. the media with the central bank and many other bodies. so the so called independent institution of regular laws there independently, it has, it really became a typical populace politician. i think the only thing that matters is himself retaining power and making himself ready to reach abraham lincoln once said mm, if you want to test a man's character, give him power. ah, it's important to recognize that democracy without constraint can be extremely dangerous. in some places what we've seen is
a decay in those liberal rights. i'm without actually seeing an elimination of free and fair elections or the if you could give me the planet though. i don't see them a little bit. i'm so fucking dark. but in to go more systematic runway during most of modern history, up through the mid to late 20th century. the main way in which democracies died was through some kind of violent break. with the past, you know the military out on the street with the tags and the guns over throwing democratically elected governments. these days, democracy doesn't die. suddenly, it dies by a 1000 cuts step by step and a di silently and incrementally as elected leaders like victor or bon and hungry. rather than autocrats violently over throwing democratic regimes.
they come to power through the ballot box. and rather than ending free and fair elections, they gradually undermine the norms and institutions of democracy from with. and so what am i supposed to do with this is that sometimes citizens don't know exactly what's going on until you wake up one day and you're free press is gone. you wake up one day, the system looks the same, but deep down the system has been turned inside out and transformed from an electoral democracy into a competitive authoritarian with shame. i think in the also is there an playbook, the 1st thing. what you have to do if there are still elections, is to change the information environment.
10 years ago when the code or bank came to the polar tv allies, that he has to control the media. and they started to buy media outlets one by one . they have different tactics. if they can buy one media, they are buying. if they intimidate the other one, they are intimidating. and if they close one media, david, close it. so there is a pressure on us. but we have to be very careful, of course, and we have to be brave enough to support the pressure ah, i was working for the largest daily newspaper at the time called hungarian nation on them that and 2 days after the collection stay announced that the largest
newspaper at the time we'll be closed so we decided to estimate weekly magazine called hungary voice he had no money told me or starting from scratch. ready unfortunately in hungary it's nobody brave enough to print the newspaper. so i had to find. ready another option since the beginnings we are printing or newspapers inflow achia ah, you're watching, i'll just hear that. we're going to bring you some light fixtures from ty pay us how speak and nancy pelosi is meeting, ty, ones present, citing when she's already met the deputy speaker, parliament, they're actually going to meet the local business leaders later. and the president
