Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I mean, other than what you proposed here and what was in the article you linked about the supposed primacy of historical baggage? Let me hammer another nail into the coffin of that theory. If a 94-year-old national trauma is supposed to have such a strong influence, then surely the traumas of Russian or Russia-allied boots on Hungarian soil in 1849, 1919 and 1944–1990 should support an even stronger gut-level Russophobia, no? So why have this election's Fidesz voters accepted Orbán's 180-degree turn vs. Putin and a new €10 billion debt to Russia with a shrug?
