Hungary's Future Depends on Large, Nationalist Families - Top Official

Improving Hungary’s demographic situation will require a change in mentality in addition to removing obstacles to having children, Speaker of Parliament Laszlo Kover said in Gheorgheni (Gyergyoszentmiklos), in northern Romania, on Saturday.

Hungary is a European leader in spending close to 5 percent of its GDP on its population policy, but the government’s family policy is focused solely on eliminating the physical and financial obstacles to having children faced by young couples today, Kover told a podium discussion at a summer camp organised by the Hungarian Youth of Transylvania association.

But the hard part is yet to come, the speaker said, arguing that a turnaround of Hungary’s current demographic trend would also require a change in mentality. The multi-child family model must be made into a trend, he added.

Matt Bracken breaks down historical attempts to enact gun control and how they have all eventually led to genocide in authoritarian socialist regimes.

Kover said there has already been a positive example of this in Szeklerland.

He said that in a certain village, the birth rate outstripped the number of deaths because families with 2-4 children had become common.

He added that people should be made to realise that “good Hungarians are not those who speak Hungarian but those who have 3-4 children and 9-16 grandchildren who all speak Hungarian and are committed to the nation’s cause.”
