The funniest thing of all was the TC’s ambition and attempt to import and maintain Kemalism into the “new” “constitution” of the Annan plan TC constituent state, and impose it also on the GCs that would have “dared” to return and settle within the boundaries of the northern state, in the 30% of Cyprus so to say!

"Gokalp gave "the nation" an important mystical component. In his work, "he transferred to the nation the divine qualities he had found in society, replacing the belief in God with the belief in the nation: and so nationalism became a religion."[43] The national is deified, thus expanding Durkheim's idea that "society can do as it pleases." So, if a nation perceives iteself in danger, it feels no moral responsibility in its response to that danger. The Unionist "scientific approach" gained a "sacred" character through Gokalp's theories."

[43.] Heyd, Uriel. Foundations of Turkish Nationalism: The Life and Teachings of Ziya Gökalp., p. 57.


Most democratic nation known worldwide as Turkiye maintains their official fascist state ideology in the following manner, against the small minority who challenges this ideology(but most Turks would never do that anyway look at this forum...):

"Banned Books 2000–2005: 284
The ban has been abolished for 47 titles..
Source: Turkish Publishers’ Association Freedom of Publishing Report (June 2006)"

"At least 65 people, including many journalists and writers, have been prosecuted under article 301 of the new criminal code introduced on 1 June 2005. The article, headed “Denigration of Turkishness, the republic and state organs and institutions,” provides for between six months and three years in prison for “anyone who openly denigrates the government, judicial institutions or military or police structures.”"

It didn't even occur to me that I would be abandoned by Sabanci University when I spoke out," Prof Berktay says. "In most Turkish state universities there is a stiff, straitjacketed, hierarchical approach to saying something perceived as being against the national interest, whatever that is, and in that framework it is virtually unthinkable to go against the conventional wisdom."


And too think many of the creatures misled by NeoCypriot propagandas want to unite with the Turkish Cypriot brothers who I am sure are not followers of the fascist Kemalist state ideology.
