Writing on the Wall

Talking Türkiye

There is now a menace which is called Twitter.
The best examples of lies can be found there.
To me, social media is the worst menace to society.

– Turkish prime minster Erdoğan

The C4SS statement of solidarity with the Turkish protestors has been posted.

I wrote most of it (as is only appropriate, since I caused the revolt), though borrowing some language from our earlier letter on Egypt (which was mainly Brad Spangler’s work), a phrase from Gary Chartier, and a suggestion from Kevin Carson.

The hyperlinks were all supplied by James Tuttle.

I would also like to thank prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, without whom this statement would not have been possible.
