PM Orbán receives Professor Peterson at Carmelite Monastery

The PM and Professor Peterson discussed current political issues such as illegal immigration, which they both described as unnecessary and dangerous.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán received Canadian political scientist, Professor of Psychology Jordan Peterson in the Carmelite Monastery on Thursday morning.

The professor - in Budapest as a guest of the Brain Bar Festival to be held on May 30th to 31st - engaged with the Prime Minister over current political issues such as illegal immigration, which they both described as unnecessary and dangerous.

According to Kormany.hu, the pair also discussed political correctness which, in their view, thwarts meaningful debates in public life, and is additionally “an invention of a small group of ideologically motivated people”.

During their meeting, PM Orbán and Peterson spoke about the recent phenomenon that the horrors of communism appear to be losing in significance. In this context, they recalled President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker’s speech seeking to find excuses for Karl Marx which they described as shameful and shocking.
