Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Isn't there a play with a diaologue between Szechenyi and Kossuth, two very remarkable men.  The amount of work did and the number of fields that Szechenyi contributed to are astonishing.  The fact that he never gave up even when institutionalized is amazing.

As for writing about him, I doubt it.  I don't know enough.  Right now, I've been reading about another remarkable man, Abdul Ghaffar Khan or Badshah Khan, a Pashtun leader and friend of Gandhi who led a nonviolent army, yes a literal army organized in troops and with a real officer corps, 100,000 strong in the area where the Taliban is active today.  He based his nonviolence on Islamic teachings and Pashtun tradition.  Would be good to remember him these days.
