An extraordinarily important speech by Victor Orban to understand the battle of Europe's heart: Liberal vs. Christian politics. With some important nods to the EPP, Germany and to Helmut Kohl. A cautionary tale for the 2019 european elections.

Liberal vs Christian? It’s dangerous to fall into trap of adopting Orban’s framing. Orban recently changed from “illiberal state” to abusing term “Christian democracy” for his illiberal crusade. That doesn’t mean this make him a Christian democrat.

That’s not my description of the debate, these are Orban’s words. Read the speech and don’t shoot the messenger.

We reported on this three days ago, but didn't see anyone else pick up on it:

Orbán’s primary concern is to remain the “capitain” of his “border fortress” (beware those tempted to get in his way or want something better for Hungary). Occasionally he can’t resist to offer a bit of provincial advice, but he does not even pretend to have big ideas for Europe.

That's orbans battle. not the real divide. It is populists vs democrats in my view. Btw one shouldnt forget that christian democrats organised most of EU. nothing against protecting your border, but this Trumpism is the problem,which is neither christian nor liberal

Nous avons voulu affronter l'inquiétude suscitée par ce discours urgent en le traduisant, pour la première fois, en français.

Doctrine éco intéressante mais obsession de l'islam ahurissante.
