    The sultans were born to slave women and through massive amounts of hypocrisy and religious hairsplitting by intrepid muslim scholars, could be allowed to function as unhindered despots for considerable periods of time.

    Of course, despite what he probably thinks, Sultan Erdogan cannot reign forever (he will die, if nothing else). But I rather doubt that the massive Islamization / desecularization of Turkey that and his supporters have put in place will be at all reversed, when he is finally out of the picture. The period of a pseudo-secular Turkey was an aberration and unsustainable.
