In 1956 Hungary was the first country within the Iron Curtain to revolt against the communist regime. It ended in 1989 when the Iron Curtain fell off and the country was able to quickly integrate in major Western organisms: NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.
However, it has lately embraced autocracy (source):
many fundamental institutions of democracy have been demolished in Hungary, and an autocratic regime has come out on top. [..] Hungarian prime minister introduced the concept of illiberal democracy into public discourse at Tusnádfürdő
The same author tells us that "autocracies do have a tendency to turn into dictatorships".
Question: Why does Hungary seem to favor dictatorship in spite the recent past actions towards Western values (anti-communism, joining NATO, EU)?
