Paternalism and the “bad guys”

[AP]

The Turkish President’s very aggressive rhetoric against Greece may be a sign of the times – often glamorous and traditional diplomatic language is ignored by internationally barbaric behavior and language – but it is It is also an element of Jep Typ Erdogan’s personality and policy.

The man who has ruled Turkey for the past two decades is a product of a culture in which citizens are treated like children, whether they are representatives of the Kemalist “deep state” or Muslim politicians. It has the power to separate the population among the “men”. And “bad guys”, without giving them equal rights. However, Prime Minister Erdogan took this tactic one step further. He sees the Turks as his “property” and not only does what he wants, but sees all other countries as well. He intervenes militarily wherever he wishes. Make whatever he wants and threaten those who resist him. He goes against the rules and the law. He constantly complains about unjustified claims against Turkey and at the same time declares that Turkey (and thus himself) has the power and the right to act as he pleases. Within Turkey, this means abusing civil rights. Anyone who disagrees with both his policies and the entire population.

The crescendo of the attack on the Greeks aims to mobilize supporters of the Turkish president on the domestic political arena and make them look more patriots than opposition critics. Russia’s and US opposition to the new Turkish invasion of northern Syria, economic problems, and the fact that he has already played a card that turns Hagia Sophia into a mosque are the compassionate needs of an authority like him. There is little room for a blow. This automatically puts tension on the front lines of Greece and Cyprus. Support for the war with Assad was a reaction as the Syrian president did not receive his advice, partly due to the fact that some Almighty Erdogan relied on personal connections with foreign leaders. Presented in Turkey. The personal attack on Greek Prime Minister Kiriakos Mitsutakis aims to make Erdogan appear to judge not only his compatriots but also foreigners, as was the case with French President Emmanuel Macron two years ago. increase.

If he cannot widen the boundaries of the “mind”, he may unleash his arrogance by acting towards others and their leaders, at least according to his personal desires and interests. not. By claiming that the Greek Prime Minister is not the man of his words, Erdogan reveals the magnitude of his ridiculous paternity. This lack of boundaries may be to make his fans enthusiastic. But it also reveals that he cannot break away from the political primitivisms that constantly confuse his country.
