A new and improved Iron Curtain?

A few thoughts on Eastern Europe as a bastion of the BASED

One of the more common questions I get as someone who both hails from and has chosen to live in Eastern Europe is if it’s conservative as advertised.

I’m a stone’s throw from the infamous illiberal democracy of Hungary and a half a day’s drive from the Catholic empire of Poland, and I live in Romania, a country where, according to the last census in 2022, about 84% of people were practicing Christians, overwhelmingly within the strict and ritual-heavy Orthodox rite. And after the experience of about half a century of bitter communism, it’s clear that there must be natural, in-built defenses to a lot of the madness pervading the West here.
