Irony Is Not a Turkish Delight

Irony Is Not a Turkish Delight

Turkish citizens took to the streets over the weekend of July 15-17, 2016, as the attempted military coup in Turkey began to unravel.


Almost nothing says dramatic political irony like an autocratic president using the very tool he despises, and often bans, to emit cheery messages of hope to the citizenry during an attempted military coup of the government. "There is no power higher than the power of the people," he wrote via his FaceTime app.

Someone please inform the people that just because they're given a box of sweets (i.e. economic development) from the office of the president, it should not be assumed that democratic values (e.g. political freedoms; an independent press; civil society; the rule of law) also will be inside that box when they open it up.

Furthermore, after a while, even the sweet begins to smell.
