That if a majority of people are against a decision, then the decision is wrong for the people.
This is what’s happening in Turkey. Decisions (Gezi Park and alcohol sales) have been made by one man, and it seems to me, by the reactions of the people, that those decisions are wrong. They are against the people’s wishes.
The prime minister’s wishes, as one man, don’t count!
To further enforce those decisions against the wishes of a vast number of people makes the decision maker a dictator.
Turkey protests: PM Erdogan issues stern warning
Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that he will not show “any more tolerance” for protests.
He vowed to end the demonstrations after police cleared Istanbul’s Taksim Square, the focal point of unrest for nearly two weeks.
Police used water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets, causing many to flee the square into adjoining Gezi Park.
The unrest began after a crackdown on an environmental protest over Gezi Park’s redevelopment.
The protests then widened, with demonstrators accusing Mr Erdogan’s government of becoming increasingly authoritarian and trying to impose conservative Islamic values on a secular state.
