Looking at the “national car”

Turkey’s ruling elites are at the height of a banal nationalism wave. In this staged photo, the minister along with a group of journalists and columnists, are looking at a prototype of a car that will be a national product. We do not see the “yerli oto” but a group collaborating media personnel like in some previous cases “see” the model. Turkey effectively prevented the development of digital economies by censorship and heavy taxation. Many creative people already left the country. Now the minister Varank, once allegedly headmaster of Aktrolls, is now making rounds of technology shows. All shallow. Not any real infrastructural progress…
