The answer by István Hegedűs to Judy Dempsey's question was published on the blog of Carnegie Europe on 12 April 2018. He argued that "civil romanticism in itself will not be enough to save the rest of democratic institutions and the rule of law. Even in the long run, only a resolute cooperation between civil groups and partisan forces, at both national and European levels, can challenge and—one day—defeat Hungarian antiliberalism."
