As we finally wave goodbye to the shitstorm that is 2016, Turkey gets 2017 off to a fucking flying start as gunmen dressed as Santa attack a nightclub.

This is just heartbreaking stuff and I am really beginning to wonder what the future holds for Turkey.

The term "modern, secular state" used to be a given, a sign that irreversible progress had been made. Maybe I was naive and took to many things for granted. For my entire life and with few exceptions, things getting better is all I have ever known but things getting worse is all I currently see.

I'm in the same position. Someone told me recently that change is inevitable, but progress isn't. A terrifying thought.

Thanks, Kreuzie. It's just such a bastard trying to communicate. Flag and heart emoji's just don't cut it on days like today.

I mean, to be labelled as a fascist by an actual fascist is so brazen it's almost admirable.
