Erdogan - Putin, modern Orwell, Trump China, Navalny's duel

In Syria, Erdogan wakes up to Putin's bloody smile. The Turkish president has just realized that Putin has utterly played him.

Echoing Orwell's 1984, British politicians try to ban private speech on Facebook. Their new legislation is authoritarian and unnecessary.

Trump would be clever to sanction Chinese officials for their treatment of the Uighurs. It would signal U.S. moral leadership and undercut China's global ambitions.

A Putin crony just lost a social media duel with Alexei Navalny. The two Russians have countermanding views of civil society, but only one of them is good at social media!
