Turbine or Turban? That is the Question

A turbine is a rotary engine that extracts energy from a fluid flow.

A turban is a Moslem headscarf that extracts energy from a country, or rather Turkey.

While turbine is a catalyst of change on the way to an industrialized welfare society, a turban is the best subterfuge available on the market to resist to the requirements of the global world and sticking head into sand.

Why wearing a headscarf is wearing out and withering the country?

Are we really afraid of our own people and view them as a threat to the very existence of the republic these folks all sweated blood to found and put their lives on the line for it almost a century ago?

Don’t SAY me FAZIL

I will skip the preambles. How pathetic is that for an artist to look down on the people of his own country! Fazil Say, the imitator of Canadian pianist Glenn Gould in his eccentrically peculiar body movements while playing the piano, is talking nonsense.

I am infuriated when these kind of spoilt artists or authors abuse their godsend gift and talent by manipulating the society.

What the hell is our problem with our identity and heritage for God’s sake?

When all is said and done, we are overselling Turkish patriotism, if you ask me.

This is the weirdest patriotism I have ever seen in my life time.

Hating your own people on account of their clothing!

Give me a break. I am sick and tired of the unchanging, redolent-of-a-rotten-cat-body agenda of this country.

It is really sad to see that democratic culture is going so much against the grain of ‘refined’ segments of our society that yearn to go back to 1920s, 30s and 40s, the era of one party and one ideology.

Take it easy ‘polished’ folks!

Tayyip Erdogan is not a king and his son is not going to be enthroned after him. There are elections every 5 years.
