World-famous philosopher Francis Fukuyama commented on Europe’s migration policy and Viktor Orban’s stance in an interview with Internationale Politik und Gesellschaft.
Speaking about the “end of history”, Fukuyama said that despite the fact that “populists” are leading Hungary and Poland, there are still many liberal democracies, and it’s unclear whether the “Hungarian kind of illiberal democracy would mean the end of history”, or the “Putin model” becomes universal.
According to Fukuyama, the common currency and the migration situation have both contributed to the EU’s current crisis. He said he’s not happy to admit it, but Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is in fact right about border control.
“The Schengen zone cannot be maintained without the protection of the external borders”,
Fukuyama explained. He added that the migration wave causes tension in Europe and helps the populists.
