Last words for this topic on my side would be ;

EU membership is Turkey´s state policy. We have been waiting for fully membership for long time. In the past Western Europe countries such as Germany,Holland..etc were attractive to people because of its economic ,social opportunities. But in recent years Europe started to lose its attractiveness, and what we see now is they are on the loosing road. Life in Europe is getting more difficult each day. But it is still a state policy whether people like it or not. What we need to do is to take this issue to the referandum may be. So that according to result of referandum we would decide to go on or quit negotiations with EU.

 

 

 

Hocam, I agree with you.. we should not board on a ship with the name EU which is sinking..our raft maybe a a bit primitive but yet safe enough.. Cool

I like your comment, lemon.

 

There is one thing we all should learn from the Americans. It is positive thinking. Too often we stick into unfair things that happened in the past, things that people say about us or what we think they say about us, into stupid arrogance and jealous thoughts instead of encouraging each other and holding fast to the good things we have. Correct me if I am wrong but I have a feeling Turks are not free of these sins.

 

Turkey is in a drive now in many fields of life. It neither has to beg for acceptance nor look down to other nations. It’s time to work for economy, good treatment of minorities, regional security, freedom of word and strengthening of democracy. None of these things will ever get ready and done but it’s always possible to take steps to the right direction.

 

When we don’t see but one solution only it’s called obsession. As individuals we get obsessed with things like money, love and acceptance, honour and revenge. It’s difficult enough for one person to get rid of his fixations but it is a million times harder for a nation. If a whole nation feels insulted, turned back and badly treated it’s difficult to rise up and do big things.

 

I love Europe and wouldn’t change my red EU passport for anything, not even my old national one. It’s more for historical and cultural reasons than anything else. I personally want to see Turkey as a member of EU because it would make the Union stronger, not only stronger against the rest of the world but better prepared for cooperation. My hope is that the beast of nationalism and fear for different cultures that has recently risen in many European countries would give road to the best European heritage.

 

Take it as an option. Do your homework, pay attention to the right things. Listen to good advice. Encourage each other for better work. Take good use of your national pride and don’t turn it into negative isolation. The membership may come or new, different opportunities may arise.
