According to Pálinkás, the first Orbán government did a good job, but the 2002 election defeat made it clear for him that Fidesz should build a much stronger relationship with the Hungarian intellectual elite. He also states that in the long run, populism is certainly not a possibility for any country.
According to Pálinkás, in politics and in economic life, competition has almost ceased.
For this reason, the “eternal winner” is always lazy and arrogant. There is no intelligent discourse in the country, so there is mistrust and coarse behavior.
