I mean Central Washington University. Yes, there is a small university in Ellensburg, WA where I was hired as faculty, and I started to introduce graduate and undergraduate students in the Computer Science realm. At least this is my intent ... 

Of course it is not that obvious that you land -after waiting more than 6 months for a ... paper-, you say hello to the new year, and you start right away doing something which is completely new from your day-to-day job. Doing research is one thing, doing teaching and research is completely different. Research wise is exactly the same, but teaching is quite an investment on intellectual and personal level as well. Working with students is demanding but rewarding in the same time. You are tired after a lecture, but is incredible to see, how they process information and sooner or later they will know way more than you do. Once this is achieved, you can stop, rest and say: "It was worth doing it!"

I have to tell, it is my first time on an American campus. Life is completely different from our university life. Students are probably the same, but all the facilities they have is completely different, and having those dorms on campus is keeping them together and more organized as we were many years ago.

Of course students do not change. They want high grades and in return they want to invest less as possible. Now they are not aware, but they already playing the optimization game. My colleague Dr. Donald Davendra is going to show them how the theory of this optimization works, but for now they just apply it with success in practice. 

Colleagues are really friendly, they help whenever is necessary, and students are really nice and respectful. The campus circumference is about 3 miles, so my workout is usually 2 circles around the campus. We lost in basketball agains Western Washington University last Saturday, but I am quite sure, the next game will be ours. I look forward to see a college soccer game, and the swimming pool is to be tested too. 

Students do work, wherever you go you can spot them, which is really nice, but I do not know how much time they have to study and of course live their student life as it is in the movies.

Each day is a new day, with new challenges and adventures but I fully enjoy it!


Karacsony. Unneplunk, ajandekozunk, tomjuk megunkat, fotozkodunk, es kezdunk mindent elolrol, mert ez a modi manapsag. Mondhat barmit Ferenc Papa, vagy a tudatos enunk, megis minden evben ugyanaz a mese. Felvasarolunk az uzletekbol mindent, mert az unnep szellemenek a varazsaba kerulunk ... Elelmet is ugy vasarolunk, mintha tobbet sosem nyitnanak ki az uzletek, vagy legalabb is a vilag vegezetere keszulnenk, netan egy mini apokalipszisre.

Az arckonyvben mindenki uzent, es kivant, es megmutatta a vilagnak a karacsonyfajat, no es persze a temerdek ajandekot a karacsonyfak alatt, mert hat "igy van ez rendjen". Es maga az unnep lenyege mar nem is szamit. No de fejlodunk, nem igaz? Ha mashol nem is, de Erdelyben mar mindenki tul van mar egy-ket adag tejfollel boritott toltottkaposztan, es egy-ket pohar palinka is gazdara talalt, hogy a szolo nedurol ne is beszeljunk. Ketsegtelen, ezekert sokan nagy aldozatot hoznak, Magyarorszagon pl. a lakossag 30-40% kolcsont kenytelen felvenni, hogy ne maradjon ki az unneplesbol. Sejtem hasonlo a helyzet Erdelyben is, de ez a kepeken nem latszik. Ott mindenki mosolyog, es egy idealis vilagot festenek az arckonyves baratoknak. Ma mar csak az arckonyv szamit. Aki ott nincs, az mar nem is letezik a vilag szamara.

De hogyan tovabb? Meg egy nap es a nyakunkba szakad a meztelen valosag, ami kisse szurkebben fest majd mint a kepek. Marad nehany kedves emlek, es sokaknak fejfajas es hascsikaras, no es persze az uj iPhone, a plazma TV, a 9" tablet es meg sorolhatnam, de az adaz harcban alul maradnek. Talan meg nehany konyv is gazdara talal, de sajna egyre kevesebb. No es persze a kilok, amiert majd lehet kezdeni edzoterembe jarni, vagy kezdeni koplalni, mert a zsiros etelek, a sutemenyek igencsak vamot szednek mindenkin - tisztelet a kivetel!

Es akkor latjuk majd, hogy Europa tobb sebbol verzik. A migracio ugyet nagyon rosszul kezeltuk, sikeres kormanyzati kommunikacioval meg magasabbra hagott a gyulolet, es egyre erosodik a jobboldal, annak is a szelsojobb resze. A gazdasag vonaglik, az Unio egy lajharra emlekeztet. Joggal novekszik az euro szkeptikusak tabora, es a kapo szerepukert cserebe a torokok igereteket kaptak egy esetleges csatlakozasra a kozeljovoben. Az oktatasunkrol, es az egeszsegugyi ellatasunkrol nem is merek szot ejteni, mert ez valahogy nagyon mas kepet festene amit a "kek plakatokrol" leolvasunk. No de a kilatastalansag, a szerencsetlenseg, a nyomor nem igazan latszik az arckonyv hasabjain. Es a korrupcionak es a demagoggianak sincs ott nagyon hely. Ott csak sikeres, fitt, boldog, iPhone-nal telefonalo emberekre van igeny. No de sebaj, most Karacsony van! Lesz idonk jovoben (lasd 2016) a valosaggal foglalkozni!

Ki a francot erdekli a holnap? Carpe diem!





Budapest. Magyarorszag. Egy illiberalis demokracia kezdete vagy vegnapjai? [...]

Ugyes bajos dolgaim intezese a magyar fovarosba szolitottak, es ott kellett szembesulnom az Akos botranykent elhiresult cirkusszal, ahol mindenki velemenyezett. Akos is, a Telekom is, a Kormany is, a nok is, meg te is es en is. Ezt hivjak szolasszabadsagnak, nem de? Eljen a demokracia!

Akos, akinek a zenejeert meg most is jobban rajongok, mint a Depeche Mode-ert, habar az elmult 10-15 evben nem igazan kovettem, de mikor meg Induljon a banzaj duborgott a szintetizatoron, akkor a Bonanza Banzai volt a ... No de azota mas szelek fujnak a dunamenti fovarosban, es Akos elkotelezte magat a Duna jobb oldalan -ami szive joga. A lelki kotodessel komoly allami penzek is jartak - millios nagysagrendben, de hogy is lenne ez maskeppen. Ha melegedni akarsz kozel kell allni a tuzhoz. Logikus, nem?

Es akkor lon noi principium. Ertem en ezt, es meg azt is, hogy a ferfi valla szelesebb mig a csipoje a nonek szelesebb, de azert szeretnem ha letezne egy egeszseges verseny es egyenjogusag is ha mar emancipalodtunk. Es szerintem igen, sokkal nehezebb egy nonek versenyezni egy ferfival, aki altalaban nem szul gyereket, a takaritast is messzire elkeruli ha modja van ra, a fozest is csak kedvtelesbol csinalja es ritkan, mig a nonek mindezt csinalni kell rendszeresen, mert hat "ez amolyan noi szerepkor", nem de? Es persze ne beszeljunk a gyerekekrol, akik nagyon sokat kivesznek egy anyabol. No de o csak "egy borda" ahogy mondja az Iras (lasd Moz. 2, 22). 

Hogy Akos ugy gondolja, hogy a no kell tartozzon valahova (lasd teremtes koronajanak CSAK bordajakent), es feladata az orokosok nemzese, am legyen. Szerintem van mas is meg ezen kivul, de o igy gondolja. Egy kis fogalmazas es himsoven magatartas egesz komoly "galibakhoz" vezetett [...] A Telekom rogvest meg is vonta a tamogatast tole, es mind szponzor szive joga, hogy ezt megtegye, ha ez a fajta kommunikacio nem illeszkedik a ceg arculataba. Meccs lejatszodva! En nem szeretlek, te nem szeretsz. Elvallunk! Nem mi vagyunk az elsok, nem is az utolsok! Aso, kapa, nagy harang! Bummm! Vege! Ma mar ki sem atkoz az egyhaz szentsegtoresert. [Bezzeg szegeny VIII. Henrik ....]

De erre az osszes miniszterium is lemondja a Telekom szerzodeseit retorziokent, ezaltal kiallva Akos mellett, akinek joga van a gondolataihoz es a velemenyehez. Nemes cselekedet! Bar ertem is allnanak ki, mikor mondom, hogy nem szeretem a hazug, demagog, alpatriota politikusokat, de fura modon meg egyik ilyen politikust sem zavartak ki a Parlamentbol. Ez is diszkriminacio, de Akos az Akos, en meg csak egy senki. Jogos! En nem ismerem a "principiumot". [Szerkesztoi megjegyzes: A Dior haz is kirakta John Galliano angol kreativ igazgatojat kevesbe dicseretes viselkedeseert egy parizsi etteremben, de tudomasom szerint ettol meg a Christian Dior divathaz ma is el es viragzik, es nem vonultak a franciak az utcara, es nem bojkottaljak a Dior termekeket. Es fura modon meg Presser sem, pedig o magyar! Szegyelje magat, nem de?!]

No de terjunk vissza a szolasszabadsag eszmejehez. Minden szabadsag addig terjed, ameddig az nem korlatozza masok szabadsagat. Tudom nehez megallapitani, hol a hatar, es a Kormany most az udvoskejenek adott nagyobb mozgasteret, mert hat ez jellemzo az illiberalizmusra. Ha azt a muzsikat fujod amire mi tancolunk, akkor erted lemondjuk akar a szerzodeseket! A szerzodesek nem hibasak, de mi megmutatjuk! Talan majd egyszer ertem is lemondanak valamit! Nem szerzodeseket, hanem politikusi mandatumokat!

Ugy gondoltam, hogy szolidaritasbol en sem hivok tobbet Telekom-os szamot, es errol fogom ertesiteni minden kedves ismerosomet,  hogy meg ma terjenek at mas szolgaltatok szolgaltatasaira, mert en nem vagyok tobbet hajlando nemet nagytokeseknek pompalni a penzt -sejtem jobban hangzana ha Sorost is belekevernem valahogy, mikor en egy illiberalis orszagban elek, ahol egyesek szolasszabadsaga elorevalobb masok szolasszabadsaganal.

Es, hogy teljes legyen a kep, "a gyermekeim gyermekeinek a gyermekei" sem fognak tobbet Telekom szamot hivni", hogy Loretta szavaival eljunk.  


Yes. Just kill'em. Take out your gun and shoot. In US the 2nd Amendment gives you the right to carry a gun to protect yourself, so no impediment to do so. Or start thinking ...
[I know it is way harder than firing your gun.]

The 2nd Amendment was adopted exactly 225 years ago, during colonial time, when people were hunting for their daily food. For a silver coin people did not hesitate to kill each other. Back then having a gun was a necessity, it was part of daily life! Now we are in 2015, and the society evolved somehow, or least some parts of the society did. The recent terrorist attacks in Paris, London, Turkey, and US - not to mention the others worldwide  raised the voice of those who support the idea that more guns should circulate on the streets, so that people can defend themselves when such an event happens. Life preservation and self defense is primordial in whatever culture, but what are the cost and side effects of this armament?

We are a consumer society, therefor going in a shop and buying a gun is not something unusual, not at all. We just put more money in some pockets. Buying rounds and ammo for our "baby" will put even more money in their pockets, but what the hell, this is a free market, you buy what you want. Once you have a gun, you have to learn how to use it. Sorry, but not everybody got a military training with the Navy Seals. In Israel the situation is a bit different, but I prefer not to know how to use a weapon. I am a pacifist, but it's a choice. My own choice, and I am not sorry for that!
Once you are trained and you do posses a gun, it is time to carry it. In your purse, in your jacket, in your car, and you can start to look like Arnie in those funny action movies from late 80s', when everybody wanted to be Rambo or Chuck Norris.  Sorry Bruce Lee, you were good too, but you were against guns - fighting with bare hands, so you are not helping out here!

The only thing we are missing now are the terrorists. Some might want to round up all the muslims and either put them in jail - exactly as they did shamefully with those Japanese-Americans after Pearl Harbor not really mentioned in the American History. Or apply immediate exclusion from US soil, and why not just simply kill them. You have the gun, so what are you waiting for? Kill or be killed, right? Do it till you have the chance! Do not hesitate, just shoot!

The 2nd Amendment provided this right to have a firearm to defend yourself against the government's abuse if any, but apparently all these guns, legal and illegal serve more to kill innocent people. So, instead of being used for defense, in 99.99% it is used to attack people. There is no week in US without a shootout involving innocent casualties. Who is protecting them? The 2nd Amendment? I hardly doubt it! Violence will generate more violence! Just take the example of Israel and Palestine. There will be no settlement. Just more and more killing and hatred between regular people who live in the same land. Guns are not going to solve the solution in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, but negotiations might.  

However, we are different! We perceive things differently, we do act differently, but we should value life in the same way. I do not want to leap back more than 200 years, and act like a caveman. I want to live a happy life, in freedom, among other people who share similar values, and let the vigilante things to those who are payed to do that. Instead of killing terrorist just try to educate them as education is the only hope to build a safer world! Guns are not going to solve the problem, education might be the solution! Think before shooting!

  


A nemzeti erdekeink oltalmazoja es vedelmezoje mar sok cimet es titulust kierdemelt, de a hirnev most sem engedi nyugodni melyen tisztelt miniszterelnokunket, aki mostansag mennyei magassagokra ahitozik. Sejtem ily pozituraban szereplo allamferfiak mindig tanulnak elodeiktol, es probaljak kivivni a nekik jaro oldalt (jobb esetben fejezetet) a tortenelem konyvek hasabjain. 

Ezzel a fent emlitett nagyerdemu sincs maskeppen, hiszen a hivatalat (lasd Miniszterelnoki Hivatal) is a Budai Varba akarja koltoztetni, mintegy igazi haborus stratega es hadvezer, aki ralatassal bir majd Pestre, es ezaltal egesz Magyarorszagra, onnan figyelve annak lukteteset es nemzeti felemelkedeset, - mert hat ez utobbit hirdetik naphosszat azok a bizonyos "kek plakatok".  [Szerk. megjegyzes: Valaki csak kell hirdesse a joletet, ha mar a magyarok nem erzik, nem de?]

Es ha mar nemzeti erdekek, akkor vallasossag es Fentvalo, mert hat o kuldte ezeket a mohamedan "hoditokat" akik dongetik ma Europa kapuit, es a felhold igajaba akarjak hajtani ezt a sok joravalo keresztenyt, koztuk minket is magyarokat. De masokkal ellentetben, nekunk nincs mit felnunk, mert mi torokvero hirnevben allunk (lasd Hunyadi Janos, Nandorfehervar, 1456), es partunk es kormanyunk is hasonlora torekszik. Mig Hunyadiek verrel es emberaldozattal vertek vissza II Mehmet hoditot, ma mar mindez egy szogesdrotra redukalodott. Csak volt valami ertelme az ipari forradalomnak.  Es ezaltal a mitosz folytatodik: mi vagyunk a modern kor "torokveroi", akik megallitottak Europa kapujaban az ellenseget. Inkabb csak tovabb loktuk oket nyugati szomszedainkhoz, de ez a hiradokban nem hangzik jol, szoval felejtsuk el! Mi torokverok vagyunk! Punktum!

Sejtem mar keszulodott Ferenc papa is kiadni egy rendeletet, miszerint ha mar a deli harangszo foglalt (lasd III. Kallisztusz papa), akkor legyen az esti harangozas jele annak, hogy mi magyarok (elnezest, maris kiralyi tobbest hasznalok, pedig az erdem csak EGY embere) megoldottuk a XXI szazad legnagyobb hoditasi kiserletet, csak tortent egy kis malheur - ahogy francia barataink mondanak. 

Mult heten kiderult, hogy Brusszelben a mi "torokveronk", mas -sejtem magukat ok is torokveronek titulalo tarsasagaban megegyeztek, hogy torokvero multjuk ellenere sarcot fizetnek Erdogan szultannak (o is nagyravagyo tortenelmi figura, es neki mar van palotaja), hogy a haboru piszkos reszet elvegezzek ok, mert mi -lasd Europa eloljaroi, inkabb csak diszelegni szeretunk, es munkat vegezni mar csak immel-ammal. No de mondhatnank, hogy Hunyadi seregeben is voltak zsoldosok, csak a zsoldhoz meg az is jon hozomanyul, hogy nehany even belul Europa kapuit majd utlevellel veszik be torok testvereink, mikor csatlakoznak majd a nagy europai kereszteny csaladhoz. 

Valamit nem ertek. Hunyadi azert esett el Zimonynal, hogy orszagat megvedje a felhold elol, most meg a modern torokverok utlevelet biztositanak az "ellensegnek" akibol majdnem 80 millio van. Ezt majd hogy fogjak leirni a torteneszek, mert hat a torokvero mint jelzo kisse atertekelodni latszik [...] De mar lattunk meghamisitott tortenelmet a kommunizmus alatt, igy nem lepne meg ha ujabb "furcsasagoknak" leszunk majd szemtanui, vagy talan majd maskeppen definialjuk a torokvero jelzot.





Csond van. A varos Adventre keszulodik, es minden szurke es kopar. No persze a politika annal hangosabb, hisz nem telik el nap, hogy valakit ne vadolnanak korrupcioval es ujabb es ujabb turpisagokra derul feny, amit eddig is tudtunk, sot mi is [aktiv] reszesei voltunk, csak eljatszodtuk a nagy artatlant, es most meg hummogunk, hogy bezzeg ok [...]. Es te? "Te is fiam Brutus" - monda a csaszar. [Szerk. megj.: A kerdojelet szandekosan lehagytam!]

Habar Adventhez nem igazan kotodik, de a karcfalvi koltonk minap kinyilatkoztatta, hogy "nem kell a lecso" -nem szoszerint idezek, nehogy meg megkovezzenek erte, de teny es valo, hogy Karcfalvan nincs igeny lecsora. A gond, hogy velemenye az lehet barkinek - ezert kovezes nem jar-, csak azt nem ertem, hogy azert, mert Karcfalvan nincs a lecsora kereslet, azert en Marosvasarhelyen miert is ne ehetnek lecsot, hisz a kolto urnak koze nincs, hogy en mit ebedelek, nem de? No de szabad orszag, szabad akarat! Es neha meg abban is ringatjuk magunkat, hogy a szabad velemeny nyilvanitas koraban elunk, de sajnos nem, nem abban.

Szomoruan tapasztalom, hogy Marosvasarhely nepe nem mer szabadon velemenyt nyilvanitani. A helyi eloljarok mindenike lesutott fejjel, tiltakozas nelkul elfogadjak a karcfalvi lecso mentes menut, mert sejtem a sajat erdekeik igy diktaljak, vagy eppen felnek mas menut rendelni, es rettegnek a szakacstol! Mindenikunk, en is, te is es meg ok is tudjak, hogy ez a "lecso" az egyeduli lehetoseg, hogy megnyerjuk a helyhatosagi valasztasokat, de ma mar ugy nez ki, hogy a mi sorsunkat nem mi dontjuk el, hanem egy sehonnai karcfalvi aki meg koltonek is ..., nem hogy szakacsnak. [Szerk. megj.: Felreertes ne essek, nem a karcfalviakkal van a gond, van ott biztos sok rendes es becsuletes ember, ahogy mashol is szep Erdely orszagban. Sot, van aki az ures, megfontolaltlan szavak mellett le is tett nehany dolgot a vilag asztalara (lasd Barabasi Albert Laszlo), de sejtem ott a lecso nem gond, sot igencsak van ra igeny, mert a tudomany mindig az osszefogas eredmenye.]

Holnap gyertyat gyujtunk, es remelem a feny es az osszetartozas bennunk marosvasarhelyiekben es erdelyiekben egyarant nem fogja hagyni, hogy egy onos, erdekeit hajhaszo, gloriakra ahitozo dontson egy kozosseg sorsarol. Mi erosebbek vagyunk! Ot oda tettek, minket az oseink ide nemzettek!



Ma egy ujabb gyongyszem kerult a felszinre melyen tisztelt UDMR-s partelnokunktol, aki az allatorvoslasnak hatat forditva, a verselest is csak modjaval uzo multja utan -a politikai karriert nem is meltatom, mert nem volna valami tundoklo a laudatio-, legutobb fozesre adta a fejet. 

Hat az ember mar csak ilyen. Kiprobalja magat! Ha mar mashol elbukott, talan itt sikeres lesz. Felreertes ne essek, nem a fozes tudomanyt alacsonyitom le a nagyerdemuhoz, mert igencsak erzes es ratermettseg kerdese egy izletes etel megalkotasa, de az elnok urnak mar csak ez maradt. A fozes. Es ha mar gerinc es borda nincs, akkor marad a lecso [...] Oda nem kell semmi egyenes ami kepes kiallni az erdelyi viharokat. O ugy dontott, hogy megfozi a vasarhelyieknek a lecsot, de kerni nem ker belole. Ez rendben is van, csak hat lehet Karcfalvan mas a szokas, de itt Marosvasarhelyen, Erdely sziveben mi amit fozunk azt meg is esszuk, es ebbe beleszolast nem turunk. A mi verejtekunkkel tesszuk bele a paprikat, paradicsomot, a bacon szalonnat, sot, es egyebeket, kinek szajize szerint.

Talan kicsit "sargabb" es kicsit "savanyubb" a mi vasarhelyi lecsonk, de oda meg nem sullyedtunk, hogy Karcfalvarol kene szakacst fogadnunk, hogy elmagyarazza nekunk a lecsokeszites fortelyait. Mi szeretjuk magunknak megfozni, es szeretjuk kozosen elfogyasztani  a lecsonkat, mert a mienk akar a magyar naracs

Es vendegszeretok leven, talan az elnok urat is meghivjuk - ha valaha kierdemli! No de addig sok viznek kell lefolynia a Maroson, es sok lecsonak kell elfogynia [...]


Facebook. A data highway where people are coming and going to read news, to take a peer at others and exchange ideas. On purpose I did not mentioned the pics, that's another story. Is it good, is it bad? Time is going to decide. Meanwhile, reading and analyzing the comments on some threads, I just realized how the society is less and less capable of tolerance. 

The Internet is free! It was built as such, being a tool facilitating communication between humans, but it seems some of its users are limited and rather narrow minded. At each corner you face intolerance and lack of respect toward others. Humanity was able to build great things, but when it comes down to simple things such as communication, we loose control, and we act like savages. Paradox. 

Paris attacks. One part of the Westerners blame the immigrants/refugees, without considering the facts.  They just ignore everything, and they spread hatred and violence against some poor people who have lost their homes, families, jobs, etc. They are different, they speak different, they have other beliefs than most of Europeans, but still, they are humans. And to be accurate they did not committed the attacks but rather French and Belgian nationals did those heinous crimes. These are facts, therefore it not open for a debate! "Punkt" - as the Germans would say.

Same with other things. It can be politics, economics, etc. I have my opinion, I am proud of it, and your opinion does not count. And if you have a different opinion than mine, I will engage in a violent dispute and I will use all my power to discredit you. I will use a whole arsenal of tricks to call you stupid, idiot, liar, stupid leftist, Nazi (mainly used in far right context) and whatnot, just to support my "great idea or my cause".  Being different, thinking different, speaking different does not mean it is less important and valuable! It is just simply something else!

First, I thought it is just a feature of the new democracies (Romania, Hungary, etc.), where people are still learning the taste of it, but unfortunately I had to realize such intolerance is to be encountered in well established societies as well, where democracy should be a commonplace by now. Yet another paradox.

Can we change it? "Yes, we can!" - I just borrowed the line from the President Obama's campaign, but we need more education, patience and last but not least time [...]



Valoszinu nekik megjelent a Fentvalo, de ha o nem is, mert nem volt ideje a kolto urakkal parolaznia, de valaki fontos lehetett, mert ily merteku "palfordulatot" nem igazan hallani, es foleg nem UDMR-s szajakbol ha noi egyenjogusagrol beszelunk. Mert ugyanis a kolto urak ma kanonba landzsat tortek a noi egyenjogusag mellett, es mindenben tamogatasukrol biztositottak a szebbik nem kepviseloit az RMDSZ Noszervezete III. Orszagos Kuldottgyulesen.

Hogy mino kepmutatasrol beszelunk nem igazolja semminel jobban, mint a teny, hogy ma az RMDSZ orszagos kuldottei kozul csak EGY nonemu szemely van, aki igaz eleg csufosan elbukott, mint kulturalis miniszter jelolt, de ez csak egy teny, a tobbi sok kozul -mar ami az UDMR-t illeti. Ahogy fogalmaz a nemzet koltoje, a noszervezet egy olyan "valami" ahol dolgozni akarok legyenek, es ne akarjanak "kizarolagossagra" torekedni, mert az egyertelmuen a ferfiak privilegiuma, nem de? Ezt tamasztja ala az a teny is, hogy Maros megyeben 25 even keresztul kimondottan "kizarolagossag" ervenyesult, lasd Marko, Frunda, Kerekes, Borbely es Kelemen regnalasat.

Nem eleg, hogy mindenikuk lejaratta mar magat sok kis millioszor Isten es ember szine elott, most meg mondanak valamit ami teljes mertekben csak porhintes es semmi valosag alapja nincs. En szegyelnek a tomegek ele allni, de hat ok nem, es ezert vannak ott ahol. Remelhetoleg mar nem sokaig [...]


The unexplained


All over history the unexplained was part of humans' life. It was just there acting like a regulator for those things which were unknown to us at a time. Humanity evolved over the centuries and part of the unexplained became knowledge trough the laws of nature.  However, we do not want to accept some facts still, and invoke the unexplained as a lame excuse for our lack of knowledge and ignorance.

The terrorist attacks in Paris, ... are one of the most terrible things have had happened in Europe after the WWII and the war in the Balkans, however, we ignore other parts of the world where hundreds and thousands die on daily basis and nobody cares. We mobilize on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), we support our French counterparts, we mourn with Paris, and we raise our voice against terrorism and such cruel and barbaric terrorist attacks, but we assisted tacitly to the genocide committed on our southern borders by Milosevic. We did not raised a finger on the Rwanda genocide where Tutsi and moderate Hutus were massacred by a Hutu majority. Some of us might not even remember, but unfortunately it happened and it will haunt us for the rest of our days. [...] Let's not even mention the Armenian genocide where 1.5 million people perished "unnoticed".  Violence is part of the daily routine in Israel and the Gaza strip. Who cares? Nobody! "It is not happening in my backyard, therefore it is not my business!" - some would say.

We blame the refugees from Syria for being behind the recent attacks, but it seems the major part of the perpetrators were Belgian and French citizens born and raised in the hexagon.  Descending from immigrant families these youngsters apparently were attracted by radical islam and their "protest" ended up with 129 casualties and way more injured people. These guys at Bataclan, at Stade de France, and the different restaurants were innocent people, they caused no trouble to anybody! They should have not died! 

Rather than act bluntly and like a hothead, we should analyze the facts and hopefully realize that we can not kick the whole muslim community out of Europe, just because this is the "only solution". Not all muslims are terrorist! They also prefer peace and democracy, and we had already such a bad experience with the Nazi Germany in our backyard, and we all know how it ended up. [...]
Similar attitude is to be seen with the Hungarian PM, who has found a wonderful a propos to blame the refugees for all his political failures. It is also to be mentioned that those refugees are somehow the artifacts of the American, British, French, Canadian, etc. forces who "installed democracy" in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syrian without being asked to do so. They are directly or indirectly responsible for this. Far right ideology is not going to solve this problem. We should find the perpetrators and we should punish them exemplarily, but we have to rethink our attitude toward muslim countries and the atrocities we committed in the name of democracy and freedom.  Same with the crusades when we killed in the name of Lord. Our attitude helped these radical movements to grow and spread death and fear in the whole world. 

Instead of classifying this as another "unexplained" fact, we should rather find solutions to secure the European borders, secure the population, bring to justice those who committed this heinous crimes, and last but not least we should face our own attitude toward immigrants. Even though it looks like the EU is the perfect society, we should not forget the words of Chancellor Merkel who admitted that the "multikulti" has failed. We exploited these immigrants in France, Germany, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, etc. giving them those jobs where we Europeans were not interested anymore, we placed them in suburbs, in miserable conditions, offering them low wages, and no or  limited integration support which lead to produce several young generations lost in transition between the country of their parents and their new country who is treating them mostly as second class citizens.   

The answers and the solutions are there. We should stop pretending that is unexplained.
