Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

I dunno, Metal. It all sounds awfully fishy to me!

Ditto. I also sincerely believe this is largely true:

The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism Wrote:The aims of these three groups are entirely irreconcilable. The aim of the High is to remain where they are. The aim of the Middle is to change places with the High. The aim of the Low, when they have an aim -- for it is an abiding characteristic of the Low that they are too much crushed by drudgery to be more than intermittently conscious of anything outside their daily lives -- is to abolish all distinctions and create a society in which all men shall be equal. Thus throughout history a struggle which is the same in its main outlines recurs over and over again. For long periods the High seem to be securely in power, but sooner or later there always comes a moment when they lose either their belief in themselves or their capacity to govern efficiently, or both. They are then overthrown by the Middle, who enlist the Low on their side by pretending to them that they are fighting for liberty and justice. As soon as they have reached their objective, the Middle thrust the Low back into their old position of servitude, and themselves become the High. Presently a new Middle group splits off from one of the other groups, or from both of them, and the struggle begins over again.

Just because I support monarchy it doesn't mean I want to be the king.
In fact, I'd prefer to stay away from the limelight/footlight and get some figurehead take all the glory, while I'd work on making Greater Hungary a better place like a silent workhorse.

Wouldn't work. Too few idealists out there. And if you exert too much pressure, you can expect it to follow you to your doorstep. That's why modern Western regimes are successful: people think they are free and that they are in in charge.

We must dissent.

Propaganda.
All that is needed to handle the problem is a good propaganda minister.
Take a good guess why parties - even in dictatorships - are made up of multiple people instead of one person.

But Divine Right is so passé. Constitutional monarchies is where it's at in terms of monarchism. ;)

A fascist government within a constitutional monarchy perhaps, like in interwar Italy.

Otheriwse...
I'd say how this would all work all:
I'd be organizing the military campaign to retake what rightfully belongs to Hungary

Here you have:

RE: Who or What is Russia's "Pussy Riot?"
A thought just came to me: the girls in the Femen topless protest look like the kind of girls that a bloke would pick to carry out such a stunt, not the type who'd think of doing this herself. The flabby old Canadian slut-walkers looked like the kind of women who'd do this as a hobby on their own, while these supermodel-thin Femen activists who cut down crosses in Ukraine look like "professionals", in every sense of the term. (Also, note that they have painted slogans in Western script on their bodies, not in their native Cyrillic).

I wouldn't be surprised if this entire thing was choreographed by the West, from beginning to end.

People are expendable, that's why.

Looking for outside help and attention due to little internal support...

Also

Quote:The group comprises some 20 topless activists, 300 fully clothed members and thousands of online activists throughout the country, according to Hutsul. Their financial sponsors and fans include a German disk jockey, a U.S. businessman in Kiev and an elderly retiree in a faraway village who vowed to campaign for the group among his neighbors.

A recent idea to sell "boobographs" - imprints of the activists' breasts, one blue and one yellow representing the colors of the Ukrainian flag, has drawn even more fans and helped raise funds for the group. One such souvenir from a new member of the group is sold for $50, a poster from veteran activists costs $100.

The businessman is Jed Sunden.

Once the military conquest is completed, would it make sense if Hungarian scientists also focus on Hentai entertainment?

I think the people of future Hungary should be able to fondle more and more quality Hentai girls on their computers!

Then, the people can take off in flying cars and finally relax - high in the skies - while looking down on conquered barbarians with subtle disgust of those who know how to live on the edge. Smile
