Looking for the report.
Drunkness was just coincidence by another event. The singing occured jovially, tho these Austria-Hungary sentiments from my part is mostly larping due to KC memeing.
I'm not a fan of the Dual Monarchy, nor any Habsburg Empire, neither the Habsburgs themselves. On the other hand I see that an independent Hungary with a national ruler in the period of 16th-20th centuries mostly was a pipe dream or a romantic idea, wishful thinking which goes against Realpolitik.
I'm not sad about the dissolution of the Empire, or for the losing of WWI, the shitty part was right after that, the road to Trianon and Trianon itself.
I'm not happy for it either tho. It's usually better to win such things and the Dualism finally gave Hungary much needed rest, development and higher level of independence than previously was. I think A-H would needed more time to mature, to sand down the rough edges, to evolve into something different, Trialism or even Federation.
