THE FIRST SHOT IN ANY REVOLUTION/RECONSTRUCTION IS ALWAYS AIMED AT ONESELF
There is this quote , that I have in my mind for many years but actually lately it’s becoming quite penetrating on a daily basis, from İsmail Beşikçi, a Turk and Non-Kurdish man who is very much in sympathy with the Kurds and involved and researched a lot and wrote and even went to prison for their cause and acknowledgment – although he himself isn’t even kurdish but he fought for their rights.
🎺 The first bullet/shot in any Revolution (potentially successful revolution/reconstruction/honest discussion about fundamental changes of society), is always aimed at ONESELF !🎺
Not in a LITERAL way, please !
You know me by now, and know that I’m not the biggest fan and adept of violence, coercion, killing, weapons and force upon others in general – NOPE !
What is meant is the “intellectual, mental, spiritual, self-reflection and RESPONSIBILITY” -bullet, my dear friends.
Translate that to :
Understand what was it, in the first place, in the specific and unique way of being of my own culture/religion/zeitgeist/civilisation/historical moment/tradition/belief/political or tribal system/rules, laws and customs that made it possible for “the enemy/intruder” to subvert and oppress me/my people/country/etc.
WHAT WAS MY OWN/MY OWN PEOPLE’S FAULT and guilt/FAILED & LACKING RESPONSIBILITY that led to a situation where the “foreign” intruder could subvert , infiltrate and overcome us, my people/state/culture/country/etc. !!!
That’s the MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION !
That’s the FIRST thing to do ….or as history has shown us million times , it will fail .
Mostly almost immediately and certainly after a while and in very, very, very few cases after a short period of well-being – AGAIN it all descended into even greater chaos and destruction and horrors.
PS: I’ve been together with a turkish-kurdish woman for like 6 years (many years ago, in my late twenties) …well, that’s why I know a thing or two about the kurdish situation and became – at least emotionally and intelectually – involved with their struggle ….and their OWN MISTAKES and failures as well – see above !!!
The Kurds OWN failure – in very simplified terms – is and was and even right now today again (see article below and more from Thierry Meyssan and his Voltaire Network ; they are doing an EXCELLENT journalistical job – very , very rare in our days today !!!) is always the same :
They let outside SEEMINGLY BENEVOLENT FORCES divide them just because of their own GREED and infighting and concurrence and envy and their OWN DIS-HONESTY and their PATRIARCHICAL TRIBAL CLAN-STRUCTURE combined with partly ARCHAICAL rules/customs.
So for over 2000 years almost every intruder came and could easily divide them via lofty promises and use them for their own purposes and then throw them away like dirt again!
Time and time again !
Just look at this last time in our current world and how the U.S., Israelis and British and French and shamefully our dear NON-SOUVEREIGN-OCCUPIED German LIAR-Politicians too promised them for the umpteenth time their “Independent Kurdistan” and dangled that carrot in front of their noses knowing fully well right from the beginning that they NEVER intended to own up only the slightest bit to that promise !
Ever heard the word CANON-FODDER ??????
And the really SAD thing :
They themselves always played a crucial part in the treason against themself !!!!!!!!!
That’s the moral of this post today here !
I guess, you will perfectly understand what I’m trying to get across, my friends……
Hugs & Love 🌹
