Viktor Orbán: We are no longer “losers” but proud patriots

Since Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s party Fidesz gained the majority in the Hungarian Parliament, the country’s unemployment rate has fallen to 3.5 per cent.

And according to Orbán, it is now time for Hungarians to see themselves as winners.

In 2010, national conservative Fidesz received 52.3 per cent of the votes in Hungary, and as a result 263 of 386 seats in Parliament.

Back then, Hungary had an overall unemployment rate of 11 per cent. But thanks to the government’s “serious commitment”, as Viktor Orbán puts it, the figure has been reduced to 3.5 per cent.

Eight years ago, youth unemployment was at almost 30 per cent, but today it has fallen to less than 10 per cent. In the last year alone, 90,000 new jobs for young people have been created.

According to Viktor Orbán, the “national self-confidence” that the government has prioritised to build with the Hungarian people, is strongly linked to the economic successes.

He argues that Hungary used to be a country with a loser mentality, but not anymore. Now, it has entered a new patriotic era, where the Hungarians are proud and see themselves as winners.

If we want to continue to be as successful as we have been in recent years, a change of culture is needed. Instead of a culture of losers, we must promote a culture of winners, he says.

Instead of self-hatred, we are now on a foundation of patriotism, he continues, and points out that a culture of patriotism should be taught in schools and permeate both politics and cultural and economic life.

The Prime Minister also points out that Hungary should not have “neutral values”, but “Christian” ones.
