The excellent Masha Gessen in The New Yorker: Trump’s Strategy for Returning to Power Is Already Clear. “Viktor Orbán became the Prime Minister of Hungary in 1998. Four years later, with a record number of Hungarians turning up to the polls, his party lost power. The next day, Orbán’s allies claimed voter fraud and demanded recounts, and although these demands were rejected, Orbán continued to claim that the election had been stolen. In 2010, after eight years leading the opposition, Orbán and his party, Fidesz, returned to power with a supermajority—enough to change the constitution and begin rapidly consolidating autocratic power. Orbán has not left office in the decade since.” (My mom bawled me out for not including this article in NextDraft. And she’s gonna find out whether you read it, too.)
