A warning from the Middle East

March 3, 2017 The Boston Globe

Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer in The Boston Globe, "After living in Turkey for years, I concluded that Turkish democracy was deeply enough rooted so that no demagogic leader could throw it off track. I was wrong. Now I believe the same thing about the United States: that our institutions are strong enough to withstand even the force of an autocratic president. I may be wrong again."
