Some of us get attached to outcomes.
We think a project or a relationship has to go a certain way.
Sometimes we get so attached to the outcome of a thing, we don’t pay attention to how that thing feels.
We may be so focused on marrying that person we’re dating; we forget to pay attention to whether we like him or her.
We may be so interested in that book of photographs getting published and achieving fame that we can’t recollect if we have any passion for what we’re taking pictures of.
Murder, euthanasia, and assisted suicide
If you went into a bar and injected a fatal dose of a drug into someone, intending to kill them or to do them really serious harm, you’d be guilty, wherever you were in the world, of murder. Note, importantly, that motive and intention are different. Many people commit murders with compassionate motives. The classic example is the ‘mercy killer’ who, wishing to spare his wife more agony, puts a pillow over her face and suffocates her. His motives are love and mercy: his intention is to kill.
I’ll let go tomorrow; I’m having too much fun torturing myself today. No, that’s not really it.
I’ll let go tomorrow; the things I’m holding on to need me to hold them today.
Yes, that’s closer to what it is.
I’m not enjoying myself at all today, but I have to keep holding on to my desires, my guilt, my limitations, and my worries.
I am defined by them. And you want me to let go of them today?
“As an authoritarian leader, Erdogan maintains absolute control over the country. This is why he wants to exterminate the Hizmet Movement, the biggest obstacle on the way to build his own regime. If Turkish people choose to go with Erdogan, will that trigger chaos in Turkey? Well, systems are built into the fabric of nature. That is, while things seem to tend toward chaos, what really happens is that one system evolves into the next. In that case, we can predict that it wouldn’t be a democracy.”
Hungry for Power: Erdogan's Witch Hunt and Abuse of State Power
Os militares na Turquia desempenham um papel fundamental desde a proclamação oficial da República da Turquia a 29 de Outubro de 1923, como sendo oficialmente a sucessora do Império Otomano, extinto a 1 de Novembro de 1922. O pai da nova nação foi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, um militar que sempre foi visto como o garante dos valores fundamentais do país, como os conceitos de nação, democracia, laicismo e ordem. A Turquia, infelizmente, é um país acostumado a golpes militares. A jovem nação turca, viveu três golpes de Estado, em menos de um século de existência. O duvidoso pronunciamento militar eleva esse número para um total de cinco sublevações.
