Default Re: Westernisation =/= white-washing?

It's too easy for me to counsel 'don't react to fear.'

I go under a username on a forum which is protected by this land's constitutional rights to freedom of speech and expression, except for extreme instances of hate speech, threats or sedition, which isn't tolerated on this forum anyway. It is rightfully deleted and the poster gets their deserts by the mods. (It's a very tolerant forum.)

But I'm not living and doing this in Turkey, 2017, a martyr for atheism and secularism.
