In den 1990er Jahren als demokratische Hoffnung gefeiert, gilt Orbáns Bewunderung heute Männern wie Putin und Erdoğan. Von den westlichen, liberalen Werten hat er sich abgewandt. Sein rechtskonservativer, populistischer Kurs lässt fremdenfeindlichen und antisemitischen Tendenzen breiten Raum, seine finanz- und wirtschaftspolitischen Ambitionen führen zu einer Spaltung der Gesellschaft: Einer kleinen Schicht profitierender Neureicher steht ein wachsendes Heer an Armen, Arbeitslosen und Mindestrentnern gegenüber. Die politische competition ist schwach und gespalten, die junge urbane iteration wendet sich von der Politik ab oder wandert aus. Ungarn ist zu einem Fremdkörper im demokratischen Europa geworden.
