Not so civil Hungary
The strength of civil movements shows how healthy a society is. NGOs matter for the state, because they can shape public opinion and provide valuable research to politicians. When civil movements are being attacked it is a clear sign that something is direly wrong. It means that the government wants to strengthen its power even despite of how the people feel. Russia is a typical example of this and now, so is Hungary.
