Need to post a correction to our previous episode.
In discussing the Turkish massacre of Armenians, I incorrectly assigned responsibility for those events. In fact, the Ottoman Turks, in their last days, were responsible for the attrocity. Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, himself expressed regret for those events. And despite lingering tensions with Armenia, those Turks who adhere to Ataturk’s modernizing legacy have taken steps towards reconciliation.
