An Hungarian author and philosopher and former dissident, Agnes Heller is the target of mounting political pressure from Viktor Orban’s government, since she initiated, with the support of many dedicated liberal Hungarian intellectuals, an “Appeal to the European Institutions” denouncing the Hungarian government for “misusing its legislative majority to methodically dismantle democracy’s checks and balances, to remove constitutional constraints, and to subordinate to the will of the ruling party all branches of power, independent institutions, and the media.”
