The walls that gain autonomy

These street writing examples are from Turkey. I will try to translate them in English. They have hope, joy, humor, and sometimes deep interactions. It’s not just about the writer who wrote the grafiti. They do have the feature of establishing a close connection among the people who read it on the wall. Maybe some of them will make you feel or think the some connections, my Earthling friends; who knows. 😉

    • Actually, in Anatolian culture there has been rich sarcastic humor culture for centuries. However, since it was forbidden to write Turkish in the Ottoman period, this sarcastic culture was only in the oral literature of the folk poets (Ottomans built up a language called Ottoman language that arabic and persian mixed). And while many Turkmen rebelled against the Ottoman court, these people used the sarcasm of their songs (from the 16th century onward). These are the works that are almost all about humor and sarcasm. Unfortunately, because they were not written works, they did not take much place in world literary culture and the chances of learning Anatolian humor of the people who use other languages, have been weakened.

      In republic period of Turkey, this culture still continues, but I guess, mosty on the walls and on twitter. 🙂

      I am glad I introduced the humor of Anatolia to you, Peter Lach-Newinsky. And thank you stopping by and your comment!


    • Yes real, isn’t it. 🙂

      Also, I believe that the education system is same in everything on the planet, except some Scandinavian countries. They all are giving the education to grow the intermediate staff to the global companies, from to east to the west. There is no questioning into this system. For example the science education that they claim to give is only to purpose to bring kind of new slaves to the capitalist system. I don’t believe any of them.
