ágnes heller articles

Ágnes Heller may have retired from the New School. But she’s as active as ever. Here is an article about how Heller, who is back in Hungary, has been criticizing the Orbán govenment.

A blog covers Heller’s encounter with government spokesman Ferenc Kumin: “…she asked Kumin whether he really considers the programs of MTV or MR balanced. What’s going on in those programs is the talk of parrots. She suggested to Kumin: ‘forget what you hear and occasionally consider that other people’s opinion can differ from yours.'”

Finally there is Heller’s 2009 summary of the state of Hungarian politics, full of lines such as “the biggest problem of all is that neither the older nor the younger generation places much value on personal freedom.”
