Megalism: The driving force behind Turkish Expansionism.

Megalism: How 18% can equate to 50%.

Megalism: When 'One man one vote' is not good enough.

Is bigger always better?

Try megalomanic! :roll:


Actually, megalism and megalistic are two new terms I invented, you will hardly find them anywhere else in any dictionary, to describe a superiority (inferiority) complex one has about his size. It is a form of discrimination, based on size, just like heightism, racism, nationalism, etc. English language may thank me for enriching its vocabulary base, thanks to the Turks too. Megalomania has a slightly different meaning.

I like the spirit, but the English language does have an answer to your needs…

I know this word, but this is not exactly what I am describing. This is equivalent of exaggerating so that it looks or sounds bigger or more important than what it is. In this case, there is no dispute that Turkey is a large country in size. What I am describing here is an attitude of expecting, demanding or imposing a different, preferential, and discriminatory treatment, because of this fact, and an attitude of down-looking smaller countries, because of you are bigger in size. An equivalent of "megalism" would be that of "grandeurism."

It is a common practice among mature and cultured people not to go around self-praising, boasting and adulating themselves; but instead to let others freely recognize, talk and praise them for their qualities and achievements. To do the opposite, is an indication of a person’s low self-esteem, insecurity and inferiority complexes. The same I believe holds true for countries and nations, as well as their representative political and all sorts of other leaders.

ignorantcism= The driving force behind Oracle and alikes

ignorantcism: Oracle's and alikes damaged and washed brain because of the historical hatred against Turks. The hatred in their brain, heart and soul is too extreme to accept a form of democracy called consociational democracy.

ignoranticism: when it is too obvious why u desire "one man one vote".

Bigger is not always better. Wider is better for u i guess. :lol:

Reminds me of the time I was driving up mount Parnis in my 1958 Citroen 2CV. The car behind honked like a schmuck so at the earliest possible place I stopped to let him pass. The driver stopped, lowered his window and explained that it was not possible for a Mercedes to wait behind a 2CV. We both parked 100 yards at the road's end.

The syndrom oe megalism is a manifestation of mimetism. First they copied Enosis by uniting northern Cyprus with Turkey. Now they are after the Megali Idea and how Turkey should dominate developments in the whole of the Middle East.

I've always adviced my fellow Turkish bros not to follow the footsteps of the "bad" Hellenes, but...
