In response, Hungary has ousted the IMF, as well as Biotech giant Monsanto - genetically modified seeds are banned in Hungary - and continues to fight to maintain its sovereignty in the face of economic disaster and growing pressure from Western corporate interests to cede.

If anything, that's what Hungary teaches us.Hungary Says the IMF and EU Want To Make It A Colony of Slaves
