Maybe it would be time for some people to know that, unlike most African countries, Turkiye has a good number of billionaires.

The general idea is that they will get rid of Erdogan one day (or he will die of old age), and Turkey will go back to progressing on questions of rule of law, separation of religion and state, etc. It might even start quite soon (presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for May).

And now that Giscard and his generation of cultural racists are dead, they can start getting back on track with adhesion to the UE.

the mob is actually the main character and the unifying theme of all these soaps
