Conspiracy theories: deeply enrooted in identity

Conspiracy theories are mirrors of a community. Everywhere in Europe – and even beyond – we can find some popular conspiracy theories that help communities to interpret the world, drawing the borders of their in-group and defend the identity of their own communities. Almost nothing expresses better a group’s identity than the conspiracy theories that  Read more

The challenge of conspiracy theories – how to enhance critical thinking against the critical thinkers?

Conspiracy theories are extremely helpful for leaders provoking violent conflicts. They simplify the world, victimise the ingroup, diabolise the enemy, and give justification for violence. In an earlier post this year, Marley Morris and myself were writing about the importance of conspiracy theories in populist discourses and ideologies based on the French, Hungarian and Slovakian cases. This  Read more

More Hungarys in eastern Europe?

Viktor Orbán is a perfect populist who exploits the chameleon nature of populism like no other, from radical liberalism to his new ‘illiberal state’. Worryingly his bravado is becoming a source of inspiration for many other European politicians. But what is he after? There are not so many European politicians who have gone through such  Read more

Anti-Semitism in Hungary

IN RECENT YEARS, domestic and international public discourse regarding anti-Semitism in Hungary has been characterized by banal understatements and exaggerated overstatements at the same time. Headlines such as “Hungary: The Cancer in the Middle of Europe?”; “Fast jeder zweite ungarische Jude überlegte Auswanderung” (“Almost every second Hungarian Jew has considered emigration”); and “Hungary is anti-Semitic  Read more

Beérett a Jobbik kőkemény tudatossága

Több közvélemény-kutatás szerint is a Jobbik jelenleg Magyarország második legnépszerűbb pártja. Ha a vasárnapi EP-választás is ezt az eredményt hozza, az nagyon megdobhatja a radikális párt önbizalmát. De hogyan jutottak eddig Vona Gáborék?   A teljes cikk itt olvasható.

Mennyire antikapitalista a magyar szélsőjobb?

A minap megtartott “Antikapitalizmus, Európa-ellenesség és szélsőségek” c. konferencián mutatták be “A magyarországi szélsőjobboldal kapitalizmushoz való viszonya” c. tanulmányt, amelyet a Szabad Piac Alapítvány megbízásából a Political Capital készített. Miközben ugyanis – joggal – arról vitázunk, miért veszélyes, hogy a magyar szélsőjobb vezető pártja meglepően szoros viszonyt ápol Moszkvával, és az európai színtéren is az  Read more

A szélsőjobb három árnyalata

A május végi európai parlamenti választás közel sem lefutott. Nem tudjuk például, hogy a szociáldemokrata vagy a néppárti frakció lesz-e a nagyobb – bár már inkább a néppártnak áll a zászló. Azt sem tudhatjuk, ki lesz a Bizottság következő elnöke – sőt, az sem egyértelmű még, hogy az európai frakciók által állított és a közelmúltban  Read more
