The erosion of Hungary’s cultural mother tongue. This is a discussion of the importance of local culture and how it has been slowly eroded by social and economic changes of the past century. In particular, the homogenization process of Hungary’s local music culture, clothing and dress, language and dialect are examined. “Uniform, homogenized culture breeds unmotivated, unproductive and sad people”. The study concludes with an appeal for attention to this problem within national governmental planning. Part I. Agócs Gergely, PhD.
