No freedom without nations

Viktor Orban of Hungary decries the globalist attempt to reduce nations to mere population demographics:

At a commemoration of a 1956 anti-Communist uprising, Hungary’s right-wing leader Viktor Orban said his country must stand up to Europe’s “Sovietization” and defend its borders against mass migration.

Orban, a critic of the European Union and an early opponent of the recent migration wave into the continent, said freedom in Europe depended on the nation state and Christian traditions.

“People who love their freedom must save Brussels from Sovietization, from people who want to tell us who we should live with in our countries,” the prime minister said to cheers from a crowd of several thousand.

“We want to be a European nation not a nationality within Europe,” he said.

One thing Stefan Molyneux mentioned last night that stuck with me today was a common libertarian incoherency. On the one hand, they believe that states’ rights are superior to centralized government. On the other, they believe that globalization is better than national governments.

This does not computer. Globalism, the imperial ideology of which the EU is merely one organ, will infringe upon individual rights far more than the average national government, and moreover, will render it impossible for every individual to vote with his feet. Globalization is worse than Sovietization, as at least the Soviet ambitions were, by and large, regional in nature.

In fact, one can quite reasonably make the case that Globalism is considerably more dangerous to the human race than either Communism or Nazism ever were.
