Was and wasn't. And the impact still haunts us.
The problem was that in 1989-90 the people wasn't prepared to take it's own matters into it's own hands - while the thirst for democracy was there for a long time we couldn't mature for it, it was killed in 1849, 1918-20, 1947-48 - and the elite wasn't willing to give it anyway either. So they just widened the political elite with the "enrollment" of the opposition's leadership, they shared the power with them. There wasn't any revolution what could swept clear the stage of politics, where the people could build their own structure, to play their own drama. The elite is still trying to direct the country from above like back then in the communist dictatorship, and similarly creating their own stratum of cadres who are given privileges. Still forcing people to lick the arse of those above meanwhile trample the heads of those below.
For the occasional Hungarians who might browse /kc/ here's a list of movie titles which play during the regime change or about the regime change in a way. The list isn't fresh I think, just found so this post will be somewhat related to the thread.
