How COVID-19 Is Helping Bankroll Magic Mushroom Legalization

  How COVID-19 Is Helping Bankroll Magic Mushroom Legalization Election Day saw a string of huge wins for drug policy reform across the country, but nowhere went further than Oregon. Along with decriminalizing possession of small amounts of drugs—all drugs, across the board—voters there became the first to legalize adult access to psilocybin mushrooms. In a very direct way, the COVID-19 pandemic helped make all this happen. Polling repeatedly shows the drug war is vastly unpopular. And drug reform is a rare example of a true bipartisan issue. But so far in the U.S., most actual policy change on drugs has come at the ballot box.Winning over voters requires huge sums of money.

Director of the Literature Museum and curator at Culture Szilard Demeter sparked a scandal. But his outrageous remarks are part of the nationalist climate maintained by the Orbán government.

Never has an Orbán government official sparked such an uproar. Szilard Demeter, director of the Museum of Literature and Commissioner for Culture, compared billionaire George Soros to Hitler. “Europe has become George Soros’s gas chamber. […] George Soros is the liberal Führer ”, and the Poles and Hungarians“ are the new Jews ”. Soros and his allies "aim to exclude Poles and Hungarians from the last political community where we still have rights," he said in a column published last Saturday by the pro-government portal Origo.hu.

Dealing with Viktor Orbán: The Trojan Horse of Europe

 Dealing with Viktor Orbán: The Trojan Horse of Europe Viktor Orbán is an anti-democrat and does not represent Hungary's interests, but only his own. The EU cannot make the mistake of simply giving in to him. © Olivier Hoslet / Pool / Reuters The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán during an EU summit in Brussels Alan Posener last warned in view of the Hungarian blockade in Brussels : The tasks of the EU are too important for a ruinous budget dispute.

He was referring to the current dispute between Hungary and Poland in Brussels. MEPs recently adopted a mechanism that would deprive countries that do not respect the rule of law of EU funds. A mechanism hated by Budapest and Warsaw, regularly singled out by Brussels for their work of undermining democratic values, and which hold their European partners by the goatee; last week, the hungarian and polish governments refused to vote on the multiannual budget and the european stimulus plan, and are therefore blocking their implementation.

The commissioner's words outraged many. Such "relativization of the Holocaust is incompatible with the government’s zero-tolerance policy on anti-Semitism," Hungary's largest Jewish organization Mazsihisz said outraged. It is an "abuse of the memory of the Holocaust. It is unthinkable to link the worst crime in the history of mankind or those who committed it to a contemporary political debate, however important it is, ”added the Israeli embassy in Hungary, while the The American Embassy called for "zero tolerance for the relativization of the Holocaust".

About 100 museum employees expressed their disgust

On Sunday, the cultural commissioner removed his platform and posted an apology message. But calls for his resignation are increasing. A petition collected 25,000 signatures in a few hours. Intellectuals aren't the only ones who gag; An unprecedented fact, around 100 museum workers have expressed their disgust on social media, which could see them lose their jobs.

"If Demeter is not removed from his post, the Hungarians and the rest of the world will obviously regard his declaration as the position of the Hungarian government", said Gordon Bajnai, former Prime Minister (2009-2010) on Sunday evening. But yesterday, in Parliament, Mihaly Varga, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, defended the troublemaker. “He withdrew his platform and deleted his Facebook page. He wrote that his article could hurt the memory of victims, so he admitted his mistake. "

A Hungarian cultural commissioner retracted an article on Sunday in which he compared George Soros to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. An opinion article on Saturday from Szilard Demeter, a ministerial commissioner head of the Petofi Literary Museum in Budapest, in the pro-government Origo media

Double standards, the opposition minister said. "When a mayor cited Hitler as an example, you did not ask for his resignation." The mayor in question, Imre Laszlo, had certainly hailed the great works carried out by Hitler in 1936-37. "But what he did as a Nazi dictator is unforgivable," the city councilor added.

Orbán's fight for a national and Christian culture

For Andras Kepes, journalist and writer, who canceled the presentation of his latest book scheduled at the museum run by Szilard Demeter, the latter's protrusion is not just a slip-up. "Those who appointed him to this post know full well who he is and what he thinks." It was in 2018 that Szilard Demeter took over as director of the Museum of Literature to replace Gergely Pröhle, a good-natured curator, former diplomat, deemed too moderate by far-right circles who had his skin. Originally from Transylvania (now a Romanian region with a strong Magyar community), and member of a nationalist rock group, Demeter was the ideal candidate. Appointed Commissioner in 2019, he leads Orbán’s fight for a national and Christian culture. He thus supervises a program of subsidies granted to authors who write on the painful theme of the Treaty of Trianon, dear to the irredentists, which in 1920 deprived Hungary of two thirds of its territory.

“Demeter should resign, but his resignation will not change anything. Its intervention is in the logic of the regime, it was born from its rhetoric ", analyzes the writer and dean of university Gabor Schein. For several years, the pro-government media have distilled coded anti-Semitism. George Soros, the American billionaire of Hungarian and Jewish origin, is constantly presented as a "speculator". He is "an economic criminal, [...] one of the most corrupt people in the world," Viktor Orbán recently told Hungarian radio.
