Hungarian Prime Minister Echoes March of the Titans

“History has shown us that the civilisations that cannot biologically be maintained, will disappear”—Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

I am happy indeed to read that the current Hungarian Prime Minister and leader of the Fidesz Party has announced to what must have been a shocked shriek of liberals* one of the basic principles of March of the Titans: that any given civilisation only exists for as long as its founding population remains intact.

Vicktor Orbán made his announcement before the WDR Forum in Berlin—you can read all about it here.

Would it be too much to hope that this understanding is now at last beginning to percolate out to the wider society, and Europeans in particular? 

Maybe it’s too early to tell, but the signs from Hungary are encouraging, to say the least.

The basic principle which the Hungarian Prime Minister endorsed can be found in the prologue to March of the Titans, here.

* “A shriek of liberals” was a collective noun invented by my old friend, Anthony Jacob.
