As you smart cookies know, Erdogan's dictatorship is just around the corner. Should have been clear from the moment on, he build his palace in a nature reserve. Then, even the most stupid people should have realized that, when he forbade free speech (for the press) he aims to be the sole man in power.
Well, since most people are more stupid than you believe, no one stopped his rise and Germany's Merkel even crawled under his table... ergh don't want to continue this thought since the imagined picture scared me for life already. However, the whole story isn't that surprising considering, USA already started a hidden dictatorship with Trump. Although I must admit, some of his policies are a good base thought (about illegal immigrant though the wall is a bit over the top and getting back economy).
Now, you may wonder "but people voted him" well true and it is partial their fault but that's not the root of it. Here is where the globalization comes in. Blandly spoken, democracy, in it's current form, is just far away from the best governing system with the globalization around. The current governments are just unable or rather unwilling to reduce the problems and negative effects that come up with a world wide connection. The politics are more concerned about having a good international stand than to help there own country. A government should first and foremost, think about the well being of their own country. That's what they are there for. And if you want to help your country, your bound to piss off other governments because you won't give them your support, in whatever form. Things like powering money in dying countries because they won't change to lift themselves and never get it back or wasting taxes, by taking in and give luxury to refugees/illegal immigrants, because they demand it and get aggressive if they don't get what they heard from, just make your own people angry (not to mention their unwillingness to learn the country's language and fitting in the culture but instead, claim to be suppressed and rejected and force their culture upon). Don't get me wrong, helping others is important but "BEFORE YOU HELP OTHERS, HELP YOURSELVES AND SOLVE THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR HOUSE FIRST! ONCE YOU HAVE NO MORE PROBLEMS, YOU CAN HELP OUT OTHERS (BETTER)!"
That companies outsource their production to cheaper lands and thus having less work for the own countrymen is another problem of globalization. The anger and disappointment bottles up and results in voting those, who promise a grip-able solution. Unfortunately, that's often extremists and wannabe dictators. On the other hand, I rather have one smart person on top, who thinks to us first than hundreds of bubble-heads who don't get anything done.
Now, that's my thought on the situation. Have a nice day and see you around.
Erdogans recent Terror Thread. I already suspected he works with the IS. I mean, wasn't there assault pretty helpful in his rise? Well, since he now spoke up the threat it pretty much proofed my theory. Still no government will do anything and our Merkel will most likely bop her head even more in his favor. Certainly not voting her party. Unfortunately most Germans, if they even manage to lift there lazy ass to go voting, will still vote the same incompetent idiots anew. I feel so terrible ashamed to be German with this...
