Tukey's taboos

Interesting BBC article on how difficult is to write openly on certain taboo subjects in hyper-nationalistic Turkey. Specially the Armenian genocide issue, certainly, but not only. Even writing about the Comunist Party of Turkey is taboo there, and certainly dealing critically with the issue of Kurdistan.

Ragip Zarakolu puts it clear:
If you believe you are great, clean, and honest it is hard to face something like 1915. Our society has traumas that we are avoiding.Really, we should see a therapist!
