The electricity was only in the two cities for last seven hours. The others and whole country were in blackout. Think of any electrical appliances and communication tool do not work. A complete blackout. However I noticed is that in the absence of any electric current and magnetism around, you want to sleep all the time.
I do not know the reasons of this blackout. Now I’m starting to research. I met yet internet:) I will update this page as soon as possible. I will write in more detail.
But it is said that it is not a terrorist attack.
The cuts that Turkey Electricity Transmission Company has announced as ‘system failure’ began in the western provinces hours ago from 10.36. It has spread to all provinces in an hour like domino. First, the electricity was cut in consumption greater cities, then in small settlements. the electricity was cut off in all provinces until 11:30 am. Only in Van, was not cut, because it received electricity from Iran.
Especially transport, life has almost stopped across the country. People have stayed in elevators in buildings. The people who stayed in subways walked up to the first exit. Health and education services are disrupted. Cutting of electricity hit the most industrial enterprises. Factories wheels stopped, disrupting activities in business. Services, especially in areas with customs gate continued with generator.
News says that “Power outages began throughout the country again by 8:00 pm local. Every moment we can remain still without electricity again. If I’m not around, that means electricity is cut again, Earthling friends;)
Yes, the planet Earth is a cosmic joke of the universe; and Turkey is a joke of this planet. You guess the rest;)
Thank you first of all for sharing a good article, my Earthling friend persedeplume.:)
And I am, from another point of view; so I would like to approach the issue in terms of the belief of a Muslim country. So regarding Turkey’s status. Why Turkey? Because it is the only secular Muslim country of the world. Even, the works of public officials in Turkey are limited by the principle of secularism as will not be seen in the majority Western countries. Even its constitution is one of the first three unchangeable article: “Republic of Turkey is a secular country.”
After the elections in 2002, a right-wing party, which has adopted the religious characterized to came to the country’s leadership. And this party is still in the management of country. The head of the party, that he is currently president of the Republic of Turkey. And if we look; we can find that he used the constant the religious rhetoric, and he and his party try to change the basic structure of the country thoroughly with changes in laws. In education, health, social space, public space, almost everywhere, the religious referenced people came to the position and authority.
Result: As much as the last 12 years; the prisons of Republic of Turkey, have never been filled than throughout the history of 93 years.
59,429 people were in prison in 2002.
More than 152,000 people are in prison at the end of the 2014.
Blackmail, wounding, the proportion of perpetrators of crimes such as sexual harassment and extortion have increased to 3.8 percent in 2012. The level of 1.2 per cent was in 2006.
The largest increase in these years, with 658,7 percent, it has occurred in the number of children using one or more synthetic drugs.
Violence against women has increased by a record-breaking 1,400 percent.
There is more, but I think it is enough.
Developing a language through using datas over religion and trying to remove the ethical values and state”secular principle” has led to social collapse in Turkey.
My opinion is, as you can see in this example, there is no real supporting evidence “Belief = morality and law-abiding behavior.” Quite the contrary, religious discourses is causing an increase at the social collapse.
Most christians would say yes. Recent studies definitively say otherwise. Which will I rely on? Let’s see. My choices are: a Bronze age text written during a time when we didn’t know where the sun went at night, or actual social science studies conducted in the last decade or so. I’m going with the science on this one.
“Religiosity does not have a significant effect on inhibiting criminal behavior (Cochran et al. 1994; Evans et al. 1996; Hood et al. 1996). ‘‘The claim that atheists are somehow more likely to be immoral,’’ asserts Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi (2007, 306), ‘‘has long been disproven by systematic studies.’’ *note 1
“If religion, prayer, or God-belief hindered criminal behavior, and secularity or atheism fostered lawlessness, we would expect to find the most religious nations having the lowest murder rates and the least religious nations having the highest. But…
…An 800-page independent report commissioned by the US-friendly Colombian government and the radical left rebel group FARC found that US military soldiers and contractors had sexually abused at least 54 children in Colombia between 2003 and 2007 and, in all cases, the rapists were never punished–either in Colombia or stateside–due to American military personnel being immune from prosecution under diplomatic immunity agreements between the two countries…
…Yet here we are, over 72 hours since the Colombian and foreign press first reported on the allegations, and there’s a virtual media blackout in America over the case. Nothing on CNN, nothing on MSNBC, nothing in the New York Times or Miami Herald. Nothing in Huffington Post. Nothing in Fusion or Vice. Why?
As UK authorities and NATO officials stress the importance of clamping down on “false Russian” narratives in the media, perhaps our own media could stop providing a shining example as to why such anti-Western narratives are so often the only outlet for certain ugly truths…
ISIS Take Tatooine: ‘Star Wars’ Fans Warned Away From Locations In Tunisia
Star Wars fans have been warned away from locations in Tunisia that once served as Tatooine, Luke Skywalker’s home planet, which have now reportedly become a waypoint for ISIS militants.
The region around the town of Tataouine served as the backdrop for the desert planet, known as Utapau in early drafts of the script, and while the settlement itself was not actually used in the Star Wars films, it did lend its name to the saga. Scenes from not only the first Star Wars movie, but also the prequels were filmed in the nearby area, making the location a mecca of sorts for fans. Recent developments, however, have led authorities to warn Star Wars tourists away, as the town has become a way-station for ISIS militants seeking to enter Lybia, according to CNN.
As for the answer to my question in the title: I do not think so. A new Darth Vader will not come out from Tatooine; more dangerous characters will come out. Because, Darth Vader is a character of principle. He has specific purpose; such as to destroy the universe:) But, he does never out of his step.
And this news is confirmed to Shakespeare again.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players…”
In fact, the left thought is based on which basis? Freedom, equality and social justice in the basic sense.
What did Europe add over it, after the French Revolution? I’m curious. French revolutionaries have thought that “people ought to eat both bread and cake”, and they initiated change to this revolution. Then, the steps that were taken in the UK on behalf of democracy.
Let’s make a pause in here. I said about the steps in UK. These steps were taken by England because of it has the universal values or just to develop a new class? If UK did that for universal values, then why UK has created colonialism for centuries in the same period? The generated result in here “social justice, freedom and equality are for British,”; doesn’t it? At that time, in reality there is nothing that UK has done on behalf of the left thought.
Another dimension of the exist left thought is the communism which was placed as regime. This has the tough generalizations of left stream more than the western left thought which is soft and avoid of meddling. Even, enough to terrify to the western leftists. Once upon a time, they were terrified that the revolutions have been created in South America, when they watched in dismay. Thanks to them all. While the bombs were poured down to Vietnam, the fishes of fresh water, western leftists have been famous heroes with their protests from afar. But somehow, anyone couldn’t stand by the communists, who were the real hero of Vietnam War. How many people know the name of a Vietnamese Communist hero? Or should I ask like that: How many people know the name of the western leftists against the Vietnam War; may be artists, writers or politicians. Are the names of the Vietnamese heroes remembered and need not be known prior to these western leftist people?
Western left thought is hypocrisy; it is clear. After Greece’s revealed democracy, in fact any of Western leftists did not do anything in reality on universal form. Western leftists have its own norms; they looked at the people, who were not one of them dismissively.
Men and women have been standing for three days in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is oppressed country. There’s a war on its soil for 50 years. People are uneducated. People are poor. Any of them cannot discuss with you marxism, communism, the future of left or over bourgeoisie “at the level what you want(!)”. I do not know have you ever been in Afghanistan? But if you have been at there, you would have seen what is to be incapacitated and poverty in real sense.
These people went out to the streets after the lynching of Farkhunda.
Well, do you think it’s easy that they went out and to revolt.
This is unlike the protests in Europe or America. There are highly suppressed feelings, thoughts and great fears at there. The meaning of this protest is very important for the world revolution history. Look at the faces of the people in the photographs; anger, suppressed, fear, rebellion, conscious and noble stance. They are all in one.
This is unlike to oppose the construction of the building central bank in the middle of Europe.
This is unlike to be on streets to oppose police violence in the middle of United States.
This is Afghanistan.
This is the land forgotten by the world.
This is the place where the people, who are ignored and will be ignored by the hypocritical western leftists, lived. In fact, this is the place where has echoed the thoughts of rebellion of the people, who want ” the freedom, equality of social justice” in the real sense.
That will never understand by the western leftists.
And I’m proud of these people. As same as, I am proud of the Vietnamese heroes “flying aces in Vietnam War”, MIG-17 and MIG-21 pilots; Nguyen Van Nghia, Liu Hui Chao, Nguyen Nhat Trieu, Nguyen Dang Kinh, Pham Thanh Ngan, Vu Ngoc Dinh, Le Thanh Dao.
