The Budapest Beacon asked Hungarian philosopher G. M. Tamás about the dynamics behind Romania’s protests and how he sees Hungary’s own struggle with corruption.

    “The demonstrations are fueled by the contempt of the young liberal middle class for the poor”

    No. The demonstrations were fueled by the inane steps made by the government to somehow make theft “legal”. Since TGM “has identified as a Marxist philosopher” it is no wonder that he sees “contempt […] for the poor” where there is none. Contempt for stupidity and acts in bad faith – maybe.
