Western intelligentsia, it is time for you to give up the unprovable superior behavior that evokes the world of inquisitors and censors more and more terribly. In the name of the old European values that we faithfully preserve and respect, I promise: if that is the case, we will take you back to the real Europe.
I see that you, Western European and North American intellectuals intertwined with you, have more and more trouble with Hungary and Poland, but with almost all of Central Europe. I would like to point out at the outset: the feeling is mutual, we have more and more trouble with you too.
1.) Many of us here see that guilt is one of the defining features of the Western intelligentsia. Guilt for nationalism, Nazism, guilt for colonialism, slavery, sins committed by white man, and more. Whether anything - freedom of expression and the press, the human rights situation or whatever - this guilt seems to be working behind all your manifestations. In the last half century, you have made this the ultimate "European value". But it is difficult and inconvenient to live with this, so you are happy to share, transfer more and more of the responsibility to others, those who had little to do with it all. That is why it is so good for you to keep looking for scapegoats. That is why you accuse the Hungarians, the Poles or others of oppressing Jews and Gypsies, and that is why you immediately declare to be chauvinists those who dare to defend their own interests. Of course, you are not in the least interested in the fact that the situation of gypsies is the best in Hungary in the whole of Europe; the gypsies in france would dance in joy if they had a tenth of their rights and state benefits as individual subjects than their Hungarian counterparts. If a local government in Hungary had dared to afford only a tenth of what a French or Italian company could do without further ado, we would have been excluded from the EU a long time ago.
You are paying a heavy price for your spoiled policies. ”
2.) Guilt and universal responsibility as a European value are also good for expecting atonement and compensation from those who have nothing but nothing to do with these sins. The best example of this is the migrant crisis. You are loudly and increasingly furiously demanding the admission of poor “refugees”, the introduction of quotas, and you are talking about sharing the burden from morning to night. That would be fine in principle, but you have forgotten something important: perhaps we should first account for the real responsibility for the terrible situation. Who started the war in Afghanistan and why? Who started the war in Iraq and why? Who and why started the crazy game that caused the destruction of Syria? Who politicized so that the Islamic State could have been established? Who and why broke Libya so that the last dam would also disappear from the path of a flood of people ready to travel in Africa? Why, in whose interest should Ukraine be turned into a war zone? The answer is not simple, but one thing is for sure: it is not we, the newly acceded countries, who have done it, we have not decided on the 'armed export of democracy', this latest and most troubling variety of Orientalism. We have only been forced into these adventures, which are already costing us too much. I therefore recommend that you demand solidarity from us after the United States, France, England and others have first reported on the causes of these armed conflicts and apologized, at least, for the global chaos that has developed. With a military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, and the obligatory support of horrible Ukrainians, much worse than the Russians, we are constantly paying the price for Western ballots we had nothing to do with. You wage war on another account without asking the other, and then angrily demand financial contribution from him. And if we growl here in Central Europe because of this, you are briefly beating us the stamp of populism, nationalism and anti-solidarity.
3.) You lived in constant guilt over colonization, but you have no guilt at all for totally running down after 1990 and making us sort of a colony. We who, after fifty years of communism, which we owe to you - see good old Churchill's dirty deal with Stalin in Moscow in 1944 and our failure in 1956 - have lost our natural and pre-existing defensive reflexes. At the time of the fall of the Communists, at the time of so-called regime changes, at first we did not understand why our stripped-down comedies immediately became your favorites. Today we understand better: they always aligned and were happy to change owners (formerly to Moscow, now they are coming to you) because they never really understood the word with their own people. That is why they have sold our countries to you, your multis, taking advantage of their continuing economic and power positions, for almost pennies, leaving us here toolless, the “free market” iron

"A West Pointon kötelező vizsgaanyag a pozsonyi csata."
Ezt egyesek kétségbe vonják.
Bán Mór/János újság és regényíró, több alkalommal is megerősíti, hogy egy amerikai ezredestől hallott először a pozsonyi csatáról, aki ezt tananyagként tanulta.( 40:01--től.)
Nem a történelmi részt tanulják, hanem az alkalmazott stratégiát.
