At first I thought, “in the annals of clueless politicians, this guy has a place of prominence,” but thinking about it, I’m not so sure. It makes a certain perverse sense, if you don’t see the country as having significant internet businesses (that are serving up data to the population), and you have a desperate, authoritarian need to keep the country the way it is, unchanging, and under your control. Although he does sound at least incompetent: perhaps a clueless authoritarian.

100,000 is 1% of the entire population of Hungary. In terms of scale, it’s equivalent to 3 million people marching in the US.
