Tayyip is choosing repression as the way forward. While short-term, this may keep him and his in power, in the long run all he does is create a rationale for revolution.

This will end either in a cowed and subdued populace, or in an actual uprising.

While truth is hardly ever binary, it seems to me that now, Turkey is at a fork in the road.
