Hungary Says The IMF And EU Want To Make It A Colony Of Slaves [theautomaticearth]

After publishing Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF 10 days ago, I’ve been keeping an eye on what goes down along the twin Buda and Pest shores of the Danube river.
That’s how I came upon a video from Johnny Miller for PressTV, which is sort of Iran’s version of Russia Today and Al Jazeera, news channels that find their niche and viability “behind the biases” of western media, in much the same way that the Automatic Earth and numerous other websites do. Of course, there is no lack of people who declare exactly those alternative voices to be biased, but wherever the truth may lie, fact is that many readers and viewers in the west are fed up with, and no longer trust, their traditional media, let alone their political systems. Hungary may prove to be an excellent example of why that is and how it all plays out.
Now, first, let me state once again that I don’t know much about Hungary, and I happenstance upon the things I view and read about it with the eyes of an innocent child. I do have a long history, however, of not believing a word I read at first glance – or The Automatic Earth would not exist. Which is why, when I picked up on the ideas US and European media hold up as undeniable truths about Hungarian PM Victor Orbán and his Fidesz party, what a vile and crazy man he basically is, I questioned them off the bat. It’s obvious he’s made enemies of Monsanto and the entire GMO industry, as well as the IMF/EU/ECB troika, and therefore western media have plenty incentives to paint him off as a lunatic.
And also, let me repeat that he may well be a bully himself, like he is being bullied by the troika, the seed industry and the media they control. All I said was, certainly in light of the fact that I know little about him, I did – and do – tend to give him the benefit of the doubt, for the moment, because of his refusal to kowtow before those who act as if they rule the entire planet.
