There has been a military coup in Turkey. This is, in principle, terrible and bad and generally awful and undemocratic. On the other hand, so is the current leader.
I’m divided here. Erdogan is a pretty terrible borderline dictator, and Turkey’s military has often stepped in to preserve the secular democracy that the country strives to be. So while I’m generally against coups, Turkey seems to know how to do them right, ie: you undemocractically throw out the dictator and then reintroduce democracy and hope people get it right this time.
The situation is still unfolding and we don’t know yet what the outcome will be. But I’m rooting for more freedom and less religiousness in Turkey, so whatever leads to that, I might well be happy with.
