Hungary's government a victim of its arrogance

After ruling unhindered for years, the Hungarian leader Viktór Orban and his Fidesz party may be caught unawares by the protests and swept from power, the liberal daily Gazeta Wyborcza writes: "Fidesz and Orbán have suffered the same fate of many other parties that had too much power: they have lost contact with reality. ... Fidesz isn't even seeking to engage in dialogue. All it's saying is that the protests have been organised by the opposition, and that the Socialists are playing the key role because it suits their own interests. Meanwhile Fidesz is merely looking impassively at the windowpanes in its party's headquarters that have been broken by the demonstrators. But it would be better off listening to what the protesters really want. ... This Internet tax could be the straw that breaks the camel's back: the start of an avalanche that produces a true political alternative."
