EU Court of Justice Criminalises Hungarian Asylum Policy

The EU Court of Justice has delivered another blow to Hungary last weekend. According to the judges, the already dismantled Hungarian transit zones constituted a “detention,” despite its opening towards the perfectly save Serbia where the immigrants came from. Hungary is castigated for not being helpful enough to perfect strangers in their ambition to start masses of expensive and exhaustive legal processes. EU law demands the individualisation of asylum politics and remains an obstacle to bulk solutions. But while the careless elites and advocates have lost themselves in their legalese, they can still not answer the question: Why should people who have travelled to their border be more privileged or more needing than the millions of people in Africa, Asia and Latin America? And when are they too many?

    1. I fear that the problem is worse. There is a lack of intelligence at the helm of the EU that manifests itself in the believe that all problems can be solved by throwing money into the corner. So if you say “help Africa,” they translate it to “sponsor the dictators in Africa.” If you say “secure the border,” they translate it to “bribe Erdogan and make him pledge to retain the migration influx.”

      The real issue is the lack of accountability of these people. And I gave up the hope to reform the EU when Cameron came back with his negotiation results before the Brexit referendum. I think these people are too inflexible and too dim.

      There is this huge army of unelected officials who will not make room for any redistribution of power. The EU will either impoverish over the next decades (most likely scenario) or people finally stand up and demand a different kind of cooperation between the nations, without the unassailable nitwits on the top.

      1. Yes!!! Maybe the cooperation of people in the Web development community is a good model. Rules are developped bottom up and adherence to the rules is voluntarily. However, big business is trying to occupy the Open Source community. If you can‘t beat them join them.


        1. I must confess that I cannot really decipher your comment. There are a lot of various forms of hierarchies and modes of cooperation between open software projects.
          What you describe is the effect of a market. If you don’t like the inner workings of one organization, you can move to the other. I mean conceptually like in the notion ‘market of ideas’ or in real economic settings. You don’t like one mindset/church/approach, you walk to the next. You don’t like your job, you walk to a competitor. The companies/thought systems must hence adjust to keep their adherents/workers. So this is a market.
          Of course, countries are also a market. And a part of the reason why the EU is so obnoxious is that they don’t like the competition between tax systems and systems of regulation.
          In an ideal world people moving from one country to the better country would improve the inner workings of all country. In reality, third world dictators are not nearly as dependent on their citizens as companies are on their employees or open source projects are on their contributors.
          The poorer and weaker a population, the mightier a dictator. The most luxurious life is lived by the communist dictator Kim Yong Un.
          So while it makes sense to approach the market ideal between first world nations, there is a more urgent necessity to fend off immigration from places that need to do their homework first; also because of the number of the potentially interested migrants and that it takes time to adjust them to their new homes lest they turn it into the very hellhole where they tried to escape from. So the third country influx must stop before first world country can compete for citizens again.
