Abstract/Artist's Statement

This paper analyzes the reasons behind the decline of liberal democracy that Hungary is currently experiencing. Specifically this study analyzes the effects of the transition from communism to democracy and how those changes negatively affected a large degree of the population and turned them away from democracy. The decline in living standards and wages and increasing inequality were associated with democracy and enabled right wing populists such as Viktor Orban to come to power.
