 Charles K. Ravasz / Inside Hungary 1957
It is difficult to say which is greater, the monstrosity or the ludicrous absurdity of the Soviet assertion that the Hungarian freedom fighters were fascists or counter-revolutionaries.
Not only in the history of Hungary, which proverbia4ly has always been rent with internal strife, but in the history of any nation, it is almost impossible to find an instance of such complete unity as was demonstrated in the revolution.
Even if somebody chose to apply the Marxian theory of social evolution and revolution to the events in Hungary, he would have to come to the conclusion that the Hungarian people had overthrown a social system which had become completely out-dated and useless, which had outlived itself, an empty shell.
