I'm sure that the irony of Al Jazeera running a 25 minute short on Hungary's descent into authoritarianism is not lost on you. That is indeed the case, and the video is rather accurate, even if to remain concise it paints in broad sweeps (leaving out things like the student rallies and a wide assortment of police atrocities, to name a few). I'm so ashamed that the world should see us like this, that something like this could happen. Still, I would encourage all of you to take a look, if for nothing else, the educational value.
