The Turning Point

        or –

The Supremacy of Morality


Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation


The Presidium of the World Federation of Hungarians (WFH), on the second reading, accepted the national political program entitled: Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation, which was actualized by the World Federation in 2010, in whose estimation it should be adopted by every Hungarian political party. This is why it is called the Requisite Minimum.  The document is entitled: The Turning Point or The Supremacy of Morality.  The WFH will send this document to every Hungarian party and organization on the State list, asking that they react in a positive manner towards it.  At the same time, the WFH calls the attention of the voting public to this document, recommending that they regard it as a scale, on which they might weigh the national content of the programs of each political party.


The World Federation of Hungarians recommends that the voting citizens turn their attention to that political organization, whose program contains those items that closely resemble those of the 2010 version of the Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation.  


The ten paragraphs contain thirty points, and 45 national political items in all.


§ 0.  A complete moral revival

§ 1.  The assertion of the Hungarian people’s right to self-government

§ 2.  Justice for Europe

The Supremacy of Morality


Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation – 2010


World Federation of Hungarians

March 15, 2010





of the World Federation of Hungarians


Motivated by the sense of responsibility for the future and the current plight of the Hungarian nation, all the while keeping in mind the globalization processes,  the World Federation of Hungarians, adopted  and made public in September 2005 the document entitled:

Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation

During the period of more than four years that has passed since its publication, the ensuing societal, economic and political changes that have taken place have caused a grievous deterioration in the condition of the Hungarian nation. The ruling political elite has failed to espouse the items of the Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation in its activities; indeed, it has been acting explicitly in the opposite direction. This has intensified the crisis, which today has become a moral, political and economic crisis.  

The Hungarian World Congress, which convened in August 2008 on the occasion of  the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the World Federation of Hungarians, made it its objective to bring a turnaround in the morality and mentality in the life of Hungary  and the Hungarian people. More than 800 delegates and about 400 guests took part in the 12 conferences, in which academicians from the East, politicians from the West, Hungarian scholars, researchers and public figures deliberated on the questions of life and death matters of the Hungarian people. The VII World Congress, which was honored in a letter of greeting by His Excellency, the Dalai Lama and another by Professor Mario Alinei, perhaps the most renowned philologist in Europe, represented a beautiful, so far unseen, arch extending from the Altai region to the Atlantic Ocean, in the center of which stood the much cherished, gifted, Hungarian people, who deserve a better fate.

Hungarian Society is ready for the Turning Point

The VII Hungarian World Congress, as the all-Hungarian institution endowed with the greatest legitimacy, which, since June 4 1920, has alone represented in a lawful manner the totality of the Hungarian people, has made several resolutions that have supported and even complemented the precepts listed in the document. With its most important resolution, it adopted the Declaration of Self-Determination for the Hungarian people.  Following this, based on the proposal of the conference: Re-examination of the Treaty of Trianon, the Presidium  of the World Federation of Hungarians formulated and adopted the petition:  Justice for Europe, aiming to reexamine the Peace Treaties of Trianon (1920) and Paris (1947). These documents opened new chapters for the assertion of Hungarian national interests; therefore, their message was used to complement the document: Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation. The World Federation of Hungarians expects that all the political forces, which endeavor to represent the sovereignty of the people - i.e. who are standing for office in the parliamentary elections – espouse as their own and will be prepared to include the Requisite Minimum for the Hungarian Nation in their election platforms as well as in their government programs.

We expect that, as a Member of Parliament, you will stand up for, and, as a member of the Government, lead in the realization of the Turning Point Initiative that follows.

Budapest,  March 15, 2010


§ 0.  A complete moral revival


Twenty years on the wrong path is enough. We have to announce the end of the Hungarian Republic proclaimed on October 23, 1989. The democratic constitutional state that was proclaimed 20 years ago can be considered void and defunct:











The moral revival of Hungarian Society is not dependent on our material existence.  The saints, the deliverers and the vanguards are examples for the future of the growing new generation and the sustainers of their faith and hope. They shape the spiritual aspects of the new generation. We always need moral examples, but especially in the present time, in the time of our moral revival.

To accomplish this:


2. Support and urge the complete uncovering of the circumstances of the death of Sándor Petofi and put an end to the fabricated history forced upon the nation.


3. Do away with corruption and punish criminal politicians to restore trust in the elected representatives.



§  1. Enforcement of the claim of the Hungarian people to self-government


The basic instrument of the solution is self-government built upon the principle of freedom and equality, which is a natural and inalienable right, according to the basic right accepted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1977.


In the interest of achieving this:


     3. The declared claim for self-government by the people of Hungary has to be incorporated into the Hungarian Constitution, and a new national strategy has to be developed for the assertion of their right to self-government.

     4. The chief means for the assertion of the right of self-government is the plebiscite.  We expect the Hungarian Government to render all possible support for the realization of the plebiscite, and to create the essential conditions for the success of the right of self-government. The Government should represent the declared will of the people before all responsible forums and chiefly before the Organization of the United Nations.

     5. In the process of Hungarian self-government, which is incorporated in all nations’ right for self-government, the Hungarian Government should, on a Constitutional basis, provide a protected status for Hungarian communities living in the detached territories in the Carpathian Basin.



§  2.  Justice for Europe


The settlement of the Hungarian question cannot be delayed!

June 4, 2010 will be the 90th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Trianon.  

After the end of World War I, the Victorious Powers realized their intention, which was already expressed before the War, to tear the Hungarian nation into seven pieces.  They did this to the Hungarian Kingdom, which, since 1222, had had a written Constitution and was, to the rest of Europe, an example of a constitutional state.  They forced 3.5 million Hungarians, without asking them and against their will, to live under foreign rule. The Treaty of Paris, signed on February 10, 1947, which closed World War II, was a new dictate for Hungary, a second Trianon, which went further than the first one: new territories were taken, and, after the War, the killing of our people continued. After the Treaty of Paris, the Hungarian State, under the Communist system, forgot the compatriots annexed to other states, despite constitutional obligations to them.  Today, when the European Community (European Union) would like to become a region of “Freedom, Law and Security”, there cannot be double standards against even one nation – including Hungary. Therefore, today, 90 years after World War I, we say: Justice for Hungary, which really means: Justice for Europe!


In the interests of providing justice:

      6. The Government should initiate the re-examination of the Treaty of Trianon, which closed World War I, and the Treaty of Paris, which closed World War II, abolishing the further discrimination against the Hungarian people and ensuring the administration of justice for the Hungarian people.


§ 3.  A unified Hungarian Nation


The restoration of the political unity of the Hungarian Nation is one of our most urgent tasks.  The World Federation of Hungarians – acting according to the articles of its Constitution -- initiated a referendum in 2004, in order to provide all Hungarians with Hungarian citizenship, in spite of the promises of the Hungarian politicians, which were sabotaged. Although the plebiscite was declared invalid, it showed a majority of YES votes.  The moral obligation of the World Federation of Hungarians is to carry this question to a successful outcome. For this reason, it initiated a second referendum in this matter. In the process of the modification of the provision of law, the World Federation of Hungarians recommended a unilateral statement on the part of the persons in question; consequently, those who made this statement would receive citizenship on the same day.


In the interest of the restoration of the political unity of the Hungarian Nation

    7. The Government should initiate and support the modification of the Citizenship Law in such manner that all Hungarians, who were stripped of their Hungarian citizenship by the Trianon Dictate – or by some other way – against their will, including their descendants, should regain their Hungarian citizenship, without any particular preconditions, e.g. even without repatriation.

    8. It should initiate and support the procurement of citizenship for Csángó Hungarians, without repatriation.


§  4.  Hungarian National Culture and Education

The Hungarian spirit is second to none among the nations of Europe.  Its creations – from the Runic Script, through Non-Euclidian Geometry to the Holographic World Model – are all of outstanding importance to the intellectual life of the World. It is always our obligation to depend upon the achievements of the Hungarian Spirit, amidst peoples who are losing their culture because they are suffering the pressure of globalization. These creations are the treasures of the Hungarian people. The impact of Hungarian Studies upon the totality of the Hungarian Nation is to help to restore the national self-esteem and national consciousness, whereby rendering invaluable power and energy to the realization of the Social Turning-point.


In the interest of this:

    9. Let it be the task of public education to teach Hungarian studies.

   10. Initiate the re-examination of the Finno-Ugric theory of origin.



§ 5.  A Thriving Hungarian Nation 

A.     The population of Hungary decreases annually by the population of a small town, despite the growth of settlements, in consequence of the extremely high death indicators and the falling birth rates. The young families tend to have fewer and fewer children at an increasingly later age. This causes the change of generations to slow down, which means that the decrease of population further accelerates, and it might even become unstoppable.

A.   In the interest of increasing the population of the Hungarian nation, the improvement of its health condition and the reinforcement of its presence in the Carpathian Basin:


11. Initiate and support all such measures and rules of law, which stimulate, encourage and support the willingness of Hungarian families to have and raise children, specifically:


1.   a change from the personal income tax (PIT) system to the family income tax system; 

2.  tax-exemption for families with four children;

3.  the creation of family-friendly workplaces and child-care institutions, both in the competitive and the public sectors;

4.  the adoption of full-time motherhood status; 

5.   the willingness of young people, between 20-25 years of age, to have children.

§ 5.  A Thriving Hungarian Nation

B.      The Hungarian nation has become the most unhealthy nation in Europe, which is demonstrated, among other things, by the fact that the rate of the leading causes of death – the malignant tumors and the cardio-vascular diseases – is 3-4 times higher than the European average, so we regard it a priority that you should make every effort to initiate immediate budgetary and legislative measures to stop that tendency.


B.   In the interest of the Protection of the Hungarian People’s Health

12. Take budgetary and other type of actions to encourage the growth of a healthy life-style and to control the harmful passions. 

13. Ensure for all Hungarian citizens the affordable and adequate prevention of diseases and also medical treatment by way of primary care and special health care.

§  5.  A Thriving Hungarian Nation

C.     With the aim of reinforcing the Hungarian presence in the Carpathian Basin, you should initiate and support all measures, that

 C.   To accomplish this:

 14.  Allocate financial support exceeding 1 % of the GDP to the Hungarian communities living outside the borders of Hungary.

15.  In the issue of the Hungarian Gypsies, the welfare payments should be coordinated with the incoming payments.


§ 6. An end to the defenselessness and impoverishment

By European standards, the Hungarian people have become poor and defenseless due to the dispossessing economic policy of both the Communist State and later of the Hungarian “Democratic” State, after the “change of regime”. The defenselessness leaves the Hungarian nation unprotected from the economic colonization endeavors. 

In the interest of decreasing the defenselessness and poverty of the country

16. Make public the documented history of the Government debt since 1982.

17. Demand reparations from the Successor States of the former Soviet Union for the alleviation of damages caused by the Soviet military aggression in 1956.

18. Take measures with immediate effect for the reparations of damages to property confiscated by the Communist Hungarian State to its citizens, estimated at a value of 25 thousand billion HUF; support only such financial policies, which guarantee that the budget allotted for the State debt and its interest will not exceed in any year the amount allotted for the reparation to its own citizens.

19. Initiate without delay and endorse – even in the first full year of the parliamentary cycle – all measures and legal rules modifications, in consequence of which the number of those living under subsistence level in Hungary will decrease by half by the last year of the parliamentary cycle.

20. Ensure by means of economic policy measures that, by the end of the parliamentary cycle, the net average income of the inhabitants will reach 60 % of the average income of the 15 States of the EU - before the Enlargement.

21. Initiate and support the modification of labor laws (e.g. Labor Code) in such a way that besides the development of Hungarian enterprises, the protection level of the Hungarian employees shall reach that of the States of Europe that provide the greatest level of safety.



§ 7.  The Hungarian land and natural resources should belong to the Nation

In the past 20 years, because of the mistaken and gravely anti-national activities of the political class in the field of economic policy and legislation, Hungary has lost a major part of the ownership rights of her capital goods. She became unprotected against the global economic expansion, largely restraining the natural means of life of the Hungarian nation.


In the interest of retaining the Hungarian land and other natural resources in national possession and use:

22. Take initiatives for the modification of the treaties concluded with the EU as well as the modification of the domestic laws to the effect that

1.       the land be removed from the influence of the chapter on free movement of capital;

 2.       the Hungarian peasantry receive the same amount of agricultural support as the peasantry living in other European countries;

 3.       the Hungarian land remain Hungarian property.

23. Take initiative for such a modification of law that lays down that the Hungarian water supply and the sources of energy, as well as the companies performing the management of these, remain or come exclusively under Hungarian ownership.

§ 8.  The assertion of National Interests in the European Union

The representation of national interests within the EU has worked with a very low level of efficiency since the accession of Hungary. In the fields vital for Hungary we have to intensify the diplomatic and other representation. The State of Hungary cannot inflict such burdens on the Hungarian nation – with reference to the EU -, which would leave her defenseless against the other peoples of Europe.


To that effect:

24.  Take initiatives for the repeal of measures causing damage to the Hungarian farmers.

25.  Mitigate those measures prescribed by the EU, which impede or paralyze the working capacity of the Hungarian economy and the companies.

26.  Guarantee that the terms included in the competition announcements related to public procurements and domestic investments should not exclude the Hungarian companies, but ensure real opportunities for them.

27.  Establish closer relationships with the countries sympathizing with us (Poland, Croatia, Italy and other Central European countries), and conclude a strategic alliance with them.


§ 9.  Protection against settlement

At the annual meeting of the Association of Trade Bureaus in Tel Aviv, on October 10th, 2007, the Prime Minister of Israel, Simon Peres, outlined the primary method of  expanding the Jewish  empire by way of commercial acquisition of the following areas: Manhattan, Poland, Romania, and our homeland, Hungary.

For us, Hungarians, this image of the future is unacceptable!

Israel's economic occupation of Hungary can not be included in the influx of other foreign capital. We must differentiate between the politically neutral influx of funds and the economic expansion of capital, intended to promote an occupation, supported by the state.  This latter one does not come alone.  Parallel to the economic occupation, comes a new colonization by means of the classic tools to ensure power:

·        the introduction of certain rules of the game, which ensure the rule of the powers-that-be, while preserving the appearance of democracy (in its fully-developed form, this is the typical two-party system of the United States),

·        the corruption of the political elite,

·        the monopoly of the tools for building a political culture,

·        the methodical demonization of the critics of the regime,

·        the take-over of the educational system,

·        the control of public health


In addition to all these, the agents of Israel have now succeeded in reducing the numbers in the National Guard, in reprogramming the political police (NBH and REBISZ) and, in the form of the INKAL Kft., have established control over the society and have introduced the methods of the use of force.  The presence of the INKAL Kft., on  October 23, 2006, with the bloodshed caused by their shooting people in the eyes and their use of „vipers”, immediately brings to mind, involuntarily, the IRGUN terror organization. 


In Hungary, the anti-Hungarian atrocities, committed by the gypsies, have grown in proportion to the growth of the Israeli occupation.  We still do not know whether or not there exists a causal relation behind this comparison.


Hungarians world-wide are following the realization of the Israeli settlement in our homeland with anxiety and a growing indignation.

In the interest of blocking the territorial conquest:

   28.   Call upon the State of Israel to immediately cease its politics of occupation in Hungary.  If it continues, sooner or later it will cause a destabilization in our territory, similar to that in the Middle East.   In the end, this is not in anyone’s interest.


§ 10.  A vital constitutional order and a working constitutional state

The establishment of a vital constitutional order and a working constitutional state, and, moreover, the assertion of the nation’s interests have become an urgent mission, brooking no delay.  The mission is the creation of a new Hungarian constitution (fundamental law), based on the scale of values of the Holy Crown of Hungary, which honors the Christian heritage and whose goal is to return to the ancient Hungarian Constitution that was developed throughout the millennia, to repair the breach in the legal continuity and to reinstate its fundamental tenets to effect social change.             

In the interest of this mission

          29. Propose that the political decision makers and the voting citizens of the state – reinforced with a referendum – accept a law that states:

          1. the present Hungarian state – bound to the constitutional traditions of our public life – considers itself to be a continuation of the former historical Hungarian state system, condemns all forms of absolutism and denies any kind of connection to any autocratic systems of the past;

          2. the National Assembly decrees that every four years there be a re-examination of the most constitutionally important laws in Hungary (the legislation and the state organizations), that there be a reinforcement of the National Assembly and the creation of new laws, in order that the historical continuity, the traditions of the Hungarian constitutional manner of thinking, as well as the present-day social and national-political requirements be achieved, with due emphasis.

30.     The following should play a determinant role:

1. the preservation of the identity and assets of Hungary, without regard to the borders of the state;

2.  The concept of the Holy Crown of Hungary – to be held in respect in every state-system – according to which:

          a)  the shared and monitored (incompatible with absolutism) source of power is the self-governing nation;

          b)  the highest power of the state is symbolized and personified in the Holy Crown, as the object of the highest power;

          c)  The Holy Crown is the source of all possessions within the state and is its symbol in respect to international matters;

          d)  an integral community should be created, without regard to the language, customs or religion of the Hungarians and non-Hungarians living together, in the interest of a higher common goal;

3.  the spiritual and material living conditions of the national Hungarian communities (ethnic groups) in the detached territories, as well as their right to vote for self-government, should be enforced just as those of the Hungarians living within the present territory of Hungary;

4.  the reinforcement and ministration of the common interests and cooperation of the Hungarian and other Central European peoples living together, especially in regard to their coexistence in Hungary and the Carpathian Basin (culture, economy, politics),  demonstrating their attachment in the past and in the present to certain personages and communities, to the common fate of the people of the Danube Valley and their democratic traditions of self-government.
