|Gathering winter fuel in Szekely Land|
after the Romanian revolution 1990
The case of the treaty of Trianon was shameful, counter-productive and cause for resentment. Drawing a line through 100% Hungarian areas cutting them off from Budapest and handing them over to neighbouring countries was the work of vindictive fools.
Since the emergence of the E.U. Superstate the causes for armed conflict to correct the mistakes of the past have been diluted and in some cases removed altogether. Should Belgium decide to split apart, as it most likely will, it will be done through referendum and not violence.
One of the privileges of belonging to an Empire or a Superstate is self determination becomes less of an issue within the boundaries of Empire as long as that Empire is growing and its subjects are doing better within, rather than beyond its Pale. Hungary has first- hand experience of this. The case for Budapest to embrace Hungarians just beyond their present border is strong and most probably legitimate.
However any idea to extend Hungary’s border to encompass Hargita and Covasna/Kovászna is unwise. As Superstate grows so the mistakes of the past will fade from memory and importance. Culture is a strong force. In the E.U. Superstate the remarkable Szekely culture of east Transylvania will be further protected and encouraged as the historical treasure it is.
The Sun and Moon are the symbols of the Székely, representing proto-Hungarian gods. After the Hungarians became Christians in the 11th century, the importance of these icons became purely visual and symbolic. Their original religious significance was lost. The Székely have succeeded in preserving traditions to an extent unusual even in Central and Eastern Europe.
