Turkey circles the drain

As an another example of the slow-motion collapse of Turkish civilization under Islamist rule, the Turkish government has ended the independence of the Turkish Academy of Sciences. The members of the academy (and its officers) will now be appointed by the government rather than being selected by merit. Also, in order that it not take years for the political appointees to dominate the academy, the government will more than double the academy’s membership immediately. It would have been better to dissolve the academy outright.

Glenn Reynolds adds, “To paraphrase Tom Wolfe, anti-science fundamentalism is forever descending upon the United States, but somehow it always seems to land on the Muslim world.”
