I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Budapest Technical University in Budapest, Hungary.
I have a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto, ON Canada.
In addition to the numerous technical subjects in my five-year studies at the Technical University of Budapest and the University of Toronto, Canada, I took the following compulsory subjects in Communist political sciences in the Technical University of Budapest (Note to the reader: I pursued my university studies in Communist Hungary in the 1960s):
My name is Steve Magyar. In the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s I lived in Communist Hungary. Because of the alarming events now happening in Canada, sadly I am reminded of my days in Communist Hungary and I feel compelled to write about the oppressive Hungarian Communist regime after WW2. In 1944 Nazi Germany invaded Hungary. At the end of WW2, the allied winners divided up Europe and gave Hungary to the Soviet Union with several other Central European nations to govern and ultimately oppress. In 1948, a small Hungarian Communist minority took control of the country illegally by voter fraud and with the help of Soviet arms and began the collectivization of land, industry, services, transportation, energy resources and, in reality, all aspects of life. Private ownership was completely abolished. Unfortunately in Canada, we have a similar politically-correct woke Cultural Marxists minority that have all but taken over Canada and are turning Canada over to Globalist interests such as the UN, the World Economy Forum (WEF) and the World Health Organication (WHO), just to mention a few
I was born in Hungary during WW2 to middle class parents. After WW2, my father, a newly graduated lawyer, could not practice law due to the significant changes in Hungarian law as a result of the Communist takeover. Since he was a lawyer (and intellectual according to the Communist apparatchiks) he was labeled as an “enemy of the working class”. As a result, he had meager means to support his family. He became basically an insignificant accountant in a government-owned factory. Collectivized farms and the Communist party presence in all aspects of our lives are forever etched in my memory. During the Communist control of Hungary after WW2 in the 1950s, my family experienced living in constant fear and increasing poverty. At times, we did not even have sufficient basics of life such as adequate food stuff.
On October 23, 1956 the people rose up in revolution against their Communist oppressors and armed fighting broke out primarily in Budapest. The Hungarian army joined the freedom fighters. Even as a teenager, I would have gladly joined them but I was out of harm’s way living with my grandparents in the outskirts of Budapest. However, many teenagers (some of whom were my schoolmates) gave their lives fighting for freedom.
The revolution succeeded temporarily for about two weeks and the Russian army left Budapest. Unfortunately, on November 4, 1956 the Russian military returned with a vengeance. I remember the day when my neighbors were slaughtered, as they stood unarmed waiting in line to buy bread at a bakery. Suddenly, Soviet tanks appeared on the highway about 1,000 meters away from the bakery. The tank’s crew must have assumed the people in the lineup were freedom fighters and discharged shells into the crowd. Many innocent people lost their lives that morning. I heard the shots and rushed to the scene to find out what had happened only to discover that several of my neighbors were lying dead on the ground while many more were injured. I distinctly remember a nice old man, a neighbor and a friend of my grandfather who died that day. The slaughter of innocent people is still vivid in my memory many decades later.
During Communist control, the Hungarian education consisted of Marxist principles, the role of unions, the class struggle, the economic principles of a Socialist/Communist state and the philosophy behind the works of Marx, Engels and Lenin. In my five years of university studies I took nine compulsory semesters of Marxist Philosophy, Scientific Socialism and Political Economy touching Dialectic Materialism, Socialist Realism and Marxism-Leninism. We were young and impressionable, but we instinctively sensed the fallacies and the propaganda in our education, especially in our university studies.
The so-called “education” in Canada today bears alarming aspects because at all levels of education (K-12, college and university) the educators/teachers teach the mixture of Marxism-Leninism and Cultural Marxism. Some of the topics are explicit sex education, anti-religion studies, social justice (as opposed to equal justice), support of violent revolutionary groups and movements and many other Marxist theories to a lesser or greater extent depending on the school district and the higher educational institution.
Canada is rapidly morphing into a quasi-totalitarian state, which, if the Canadian people are not vigilant, could result in a complete takeover of this country. PM Trudeau is leading the charge down this path. I am fearful about this turn of events because in my wildest imagination I could not anticipate this would happen in Canada. I had always admired Canada as my ideal for personal freedom, entrepreneurship and a free market economy, human rights, ability to assemble, freedom of speech and religion and so much more. While living in Communist Hungary, Hungarians looked to western countries as a beacon of hope. I am deeply concerned that these rights and freedoms are increasingly being dismantled and that one day the Canadian people will wake up to find that their rights are severely curtailed and the government has intruded into every aspect of their lives as government did in Communist Hungary.
Since the end of WW2, the people of all Western European nations as well as Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, have made a de facto deal with the power establishment elites that have bribed them into silence, which allowed them to enjoy their narcissistic lifestyles. In return for their silence, the elite have agreed to provide a comfortable lifestyle to them as long as they don’t demand anything that threatens the elites’ power. The bottom line is that the people relinquished their rights and freedoms.
If the Cultural Marxist assault on free speech continues while promoting identity politics, radical feminism, white guilt, racism against white people, persecution of Christians and conservatives, disproportional support of Islam, and uncontrolled mass immigration, then this path will serve only one end goal: radical transformation of the Canada we know. Canada will cease to be a nation state and will be controlled by globalist forces such as the UN, the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO), just to mention a few.
Many Canadians have forgotten how to fight and how to keep their freedoms as a result of the ‘good life’ that distracted them from the important things in their lives. Those things are being hijacked by unrelenting so-called “Progressives”. As Ronald Reagan asserted, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It cannot be passed to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them.”
In contrast to North Americans, the people of Central European nations such as Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) as well as the several countries of the former Communist Yugoslavia have not forgotten the hardships and limited freedoms under the dictatorship of the former Communist Soviet Union and its puppets. Oppressive totalitarian regimes forced these nations to think about freedom, how to regain it and how to keep it. The big threats to Canada today are the increased influence of Cultural Marxist ideology, the oppression from the UN, increased Chinese influence into Canada’s internal affairs and aggressive immigrant groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and others who want to re-create in Canada the failed societies they came from. This is very concerning but the more important issue is that these these sick policies are supported by many Canadians who were born in Canada, many of them being multi-generational Canadians. Also, unfortunately, many churches and their leaderships support the Cultural Marxist ideology.
Today, many Central European countries struggle against the globalist United Nations (which wants to assert worldwide control by taking away the sovereignty of independent nation-states) as well as the globalist, extreme left-liberal European Union (EU is the morphed version of the Soviet Union in many respect) to preserve their sovereignty, culture, freedoms and Christian heritage. Canada must do the same.
The Canadian people have never had to live under Communism, Nazism, Sharia law or any other dictatorship and consequently do not, and can not see this danger as an imminent and potential reality. They have taken their freedom for granted. Is it realistic to expect Western nations’ citizens to fight for their freedoms, civil rights and sovereignty when they have totally forgotten or are unaware of the importance of fighting and keeping their culture, values, borders and religion? Will it be only when Canadians experience hardships and a loss of their freedoms that they are compelled to fight for their freedoms and the sovereignty of their nation? But then it might be too late.
Time is running out! It is urgent to act now! Canadians must take back their country!
