Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan temporarily banned Twitter last week, followed by a brief ban on YouTube! OMG how did the peeps of Turkey survive for a day without it? lol The more important question is: why did that happen? Watch this 20 minutes on Turkey to get the background of protests that have occurred across the country for months, allegations of corruption again the government, and even the recent elections of March 30….all of which relate to what this story is really all about. Is Erdogan devolving into a dictator? Is Turkey turning into a theocracy? Doubtful, as the Professor pontificates about in this podcast.
