Human for Sale? Human Breeding Has Become More Dangerous than the Atomic Bomb

September 18, 2018
It is fascinating that those who referred to atomic bomb as healthy children 73 years ago do not give a name to the children produced by science. Compared to this, killing hundreds of thousands of people by pushing a button is almost nothing. It is a shame to see that the humanity of today’s human producers is way behind Bainbridge and his colleagues.

The US atrocity and Trump as a scapegoat

September 5, 2018
U.S. President Donald Trump is also a scapegoat. Since his inauguration, his discharge is constantly on the agenda in U.S. domestic politics, while the international community is fed up with him.

Amid all the debates, Kilicdaroglu contented himself with changing the Central Executive Board for the tenth time.

Evangelicals and the messianic character of US foreign policy

August 8, 2018
Of course, the threat is not because evangelicals believe in seven curses that will appear as signs of the apocalypse, that the apocalypse will begin in the Middle East and that they will one day rule the world thanks to Jesus Christ. The threat lies in the fact that they create policies to realize what they believe in and have secured a place for themselves in political power.

FETO's German Wing and the Supreme Court

July 23, 2018
Surely there is a Supreme Court in Berlin today. But it is alarming that a state of law who is the founding member of the EU is currently guarding coup attempters, which is not even kept as a secret. The German public will hopefully bring them to account one day.

Will HDP Choose Democratic Politics and Stand Against the PKK?

July 18, 2018
With its 67 deputies, the HDP has another chance to choose democratic means over violence and polarization ahead of the new parliamentary term. Will the party consider the electorate’s demand of civil politics and stance against the PKK? Will they be able to show the courage to stand against the PKK, which has already been displayed by the electorate? Or are they willing to keep their violence prone policies?
