    Hungary is no longer a democracy
    Europe has been slow to act, but it is not too late.

    I just skimmed through the article and this is horrible. It appears that Hungary is reverting back to the bad old days of being behind the Iron Curtain. Jews, Gays, and women have the most to lose under this new legal arrangement. The homeless would be imprisoned just for being homeless. What the fuck is wrong with some of these Eastern European countriesicon_question.gificon_mad.gif

    Jews, gays, women....and the Roma people. They're being persecuted again too. Every single group Hitler hated. But the right-wing Hungarian party has historical ties to the pro-Nazi party that ran Hungary during WW2.

    Yep - those National Socialists. Democracy is also eroding in Greece because of their prolific spending and corruption.
