This is not meant to be a political discussion, but to promote discussion on how MPers use this kind of information when choosing travel destinations. While I do not pretend to be all knowing in world politics I find what is happening in Hungary at the moment a little disturbing. I am not naive enough to think that my own country doesn't have room to grow in terms of creating a better democracy but some of the amendments Hungary is looking at making seem like such a step backwards. Outlawing homelessness, quieting discontent, barring justices from citing rulings made before the new constitution and strictly defining family are a few things that stick out. I am not finding an information on this since mid-March of this year. I was considering visiting Budapest later this year however this makes me reconsider spending my money elsewhere. I realize I don't have to agree, and won't, with the policy of every place I visit however this just seems very in my face. I have also nixed any burgeoning ideas of visiting Russia as well. At least for now. How would you use such information to determine travel plans? What is your tipping point?
