  • 1956 - The Hungarian Revolution - We Forgive, But Will Never Forget

    The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was a spontaneous nationwide revolt against the Stalinist government of Hungary and its Soviet-imposed policies, lasting from 23 October until 10 November 1956.



    It began as a student demonstration which attracted thousands as it marched through central Budapest to the Parliament building. A student delegation entering the radio building in an attempt to broadcast its demands was detained. When the delegation's release was demanded by the demonstrators outside, they were fired upon by the State Security Police (ÁVH) from within the building. The news spread quickly and disorder and violence erupted throughout the capital.



    The revolt spread quickly across Hungary, and the government fell. Thousands organized into militias, battling the State Security Police (ÁVH) and Soviet troops. Impromptu councils wrested municipal control from the Communist Party, and demanded political changes. The new government formally disbanded the ÁVH, declared its intention to withdraw from the Warsaw Pact and pledged to re-establish free elections. By the end of October, fighting had almost stopped and a sense of normality began to return.



    Freedom gained victory over suppression and terror - but only temporarily.



    On 4 November, a large Soviet force invaded Budapest and other regions of the country. Hungarian resistance continued until 10 November. An estimated 2,500 Hungarians died, and 200,000 more fled as refugees. Thousand were arrested, imprisoned and deported to the Soviet Union, many without evidence. Approximately 200,000 Hungarians fled Hungary, some 26,000 were put on trial by the Kádár government, and of those 13,000 were imprisoned.



    By January 1957, the new Soviet-installed government had suppressed all public opposition. These Soviet actions alienated many Western Marxists, yet strengthened Soviet control over Central Europe, cultivating the perception that communism was both irreversible and monolithic. It showed the world that communism is not just an incoherent ideology, but also a brutal way of oppressing political and civil freedom, and wrecking the lives of hundreds millions of people.



    Public discussion about this revolution was suppressed in Hungary for over 30 years, but since the thaw of the 1980s it has been a subject of intense study and debate. At the inauguration of the Third Hungarian Republic in 1989, 23 October was declared a national holiday.

    This idea was created by Lewegal and group created by me (The Dark Legion). If you are Middle Eastern or not, and hummus happens to be your favorite appetizer, then this group is for you!



    Some info taken from Wikipedia on Hummus:



    Hummus (also spelled hamos, houmous, hommos, hommus, hummos, hummous or humus; see romanization of Arabic) is a dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Hummus is a popular food in various local forms throughout the Middle Eastern world.[1]

  • "Concilium Plebis"? Bah!

    For those of us who think the idea of a "Concilium

    Plebis" is a ridiculous idea. This proposed institution would virtually eliminate the motivation to become a citizen and would render the rank somewhat meaningless. We must rally together, citizens, and oppose this!



    Plebeians welcome also.

    1.junior members must submit a certain amount of dufferesque writings in any forum, viz., 10 long posts (at least 2 paragraphs) or 20 short ones (a few sentences).

    SOWING DISCORD BETWEEN MEMBERS

    Sowing discord between members is STRICTLY PROHIBITED as conducive to the worst disorders of the civil body, which is the club. Members should always settle matters in a civil fashion; furthermore, let it be reminded that

    Members of different rank may not call each other out.

    If it should happen that a member of lower rank is offended by one of higher rank, an Arch♔duffer or Magnus should step in for him and defend him.

    Furthermore, whereas a member may leave the club at his own discretion, it is not for him to decide if he is readmitted.
