State must help to strengthen national and family communities
15. 11. 2019.
On Thursday afternoon in the Carmelite Monastery in Budapest, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán received American Professor of Political Science Patrick J. Deneen whose book ‘Why Liberalism Failed’ will be released in Budapest shortly, Bertalan Havasi, the Prime Minister’s press chief told the Hungarian news agency MTI.

At the meeting, the American conservative academic spoke about Hungary’s family policy measures in words of praise, underlining that the future belongs to local communities resting on national and family values, instead of liberalism which still continues to prevail in many places. The parties agreed that it is the responsibility of the state everywhere to reinforce these communities.

Professor Deneen repeated an earlier thought of his, stating that nation is complete if it is ruled by God because it is thereby able to counter, with humility and self-criticism, the deficiencies of human institutions, and becomes worthy of using the term ‘national conservatism’, Mr Havasi said.
