Hungary’s Viktor Orbán now rules by decree in troubling example of how coronavirus fear enables authoritarians to tighten their grip

On top of the health crisis it has created, the coronavirus emergency is providing authoritarian governments with a new tool to consolidate control.

One of the most striking examples so far has been in Hungary, where the parliament has voted to allow the government of prime minister Viktor Orbán the power to rule by decree – effectively indefinitely.

This means that the government can do anything that it considers important to fight against the coronavirus.

Parliament can, technically vote to end this extra power, but Orbán’s party Fidesz has a two-thirds majority.

The Constitutional Court can investigate the legality of any governmental decrees Orbán produces, but again, he has made sure it is packed full of judges chosen by his party.

Fidesz has also introduced a clause that prevents any by-elections or referendums from being held during the crisis.

The when is November, 2020.

If you think this is unlikely, did you read what Chicago’s “Trumpie” columnist John Kass said in today’s column?

Kass makes negative awards he calls “Mouzas” (a hand thrust into someone’s face) to any who displease him:

Speaking of ballots, I wonder if the Illinois Department of Public Health will be asking those who test positive these questions:

“Did you vote at an Illinois polling place on March 17 or have you been in contact with anyone who did, or anyone who served as an election judge?

“And even though you have coronavirus and could die, are you still really glad Gov. J.B. Pritzker closed all the restaurants and bars for your safety while refusing to postpone the election?”

I don’t think Pritzker’s teams of coronavirus trackers will put it that way.

“Pritzker stood up there, in front of TV viewers stating it was ALL about democracy and in the same breath said COVID-19 was deadly,” said Tom McClaughry.

“Oh boy, so much for caring about the people. He has my vote and my ONLY vote for the Moutza. Naaah!!”

“He stands up there complaining about the White House, but keeps the (bleeping) primary open? NAH!”

So there is Trump toady Kass, complaining that Illinois Governor Pritzker didn’t stop the primary election.

Think of the kind of crooks Trump and his pals are. Then think of Trump’s herd of toadies in Congress and on the Supreme Court, and it isn’t much of a stretch — in fact it’s a probability — that Trump and his gang of bootlickers will try the “Hungary” scam this November.

Kass, FOX News, Brietbart et al will justify whatever happens.

Watch for it.

And that will be how and when America will die.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.
