The government is attacking Soros because in the political sphere, they understand they do not have opposition at all. They are looking for any kind of opposition they can quash, and since the political sphere is dominated, they have no worries there - they turn towards a person that they imagine is able to shape society through NGOs.

Live from Budapest, Todd Williams examines the manipulation of Hungarian society by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who is consolidating his political power by rolling out of a "package of propaganda" attacking George Soros, refugees and the media ahead of a 2018 election he looks set to dominate after outmaneuvering the far right opposition, and stepping over the hapless left.
