457 fintsl > Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that young Turks who study in the West come back as “volunteer spies” - even though three of his own children studied in the US. > Mr Erdogan is the father of four adult children, three of whom have degrees from American universities. > His daughter Esra and son Bilal both did their undergraduate studies at Indiana University, while other daughter Sumeyye has a master’s degree from the university’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
1777 E_Blofeld What a fucking clown. He's become a parody of a third-world tinhorn autocrat. A sawdust Caesar.
923 Featruz As a Turk, fuck Erdogan. I don’t understand how half of my people love him.
132 noblespaceplatypus of course he would know, OBVIOUSLY since his kids studied in the west then they're obviously spies so Erdogan knows that it must be true.

106 FleekAdjacent In an autocracy, critical thinking is treason. Critical thinking is not something you just have, it must be developed and nurtured. It's something you learn like reading and writing. It's possible to pick it up later in life, but you should start as young as possible. The biggest differences between the educational systems in democracies and autocracies are the attitudes towards logic and independent thought. Rote memorization and regurgitation of facts, "facts" and utter state-issued dogma are the hallmarks of the school curriculum under an autocratic regime. Teaching people how to solve problems and reach solutions on their own is dangerous to dictatorships. You're asking students to look at history, context and ask "why". "Why?" is the most dangerous question of them all.
