It can happen

By David Bidussa*

On November 4, 1956, the Red Army troops enter Budapest. They arrest all the members of the reformist government and order to surrender their arms. The philosopher György Lukács, Minister of Culture, lays on the table his fountain pen by him. I thought back about this scene from many years ago these days. I don’t know if it already happened. I know that it can.
