The third pages of the newspapers started to fill with murder news. On top of that, a driver's horn whistling while going somewhere in the city, whether by taxi or by car, can immediately cause an outburst of anger.
On top of that, it is seen that people come out prepared as if they are going to a fight at any moment, not to go to work. Out of the two drivers fighting with each other, the prepared one takes the stick or iron bar he carries in his car and runs into the fight. You think there is a blood feud between them. However, people who run into each other with anger usually do not even know each other.
Beyond that, short-distance fights have started to break out between taxi drivers and their customers in Istanbul recently. Let me point out right away that most of the time the event does not end with a fight. In such a short-distance fight, news began to come that the driver's punch caused a foreign national customer to die.
The issue goes beyond that, and the images of an old woman waiting for a car on the side of the road to go to the hospital to go to the hospital are really infuriating.
We immediately asks, “What is happening to us? What is the reason for this anger, hatred, and grudge?”
What happened to humans, who were described as the most honorable of creatures, that money became the most precious to them. In short, what happened to replace love in people's lives with hatred, anger and hatred?
Let me point out right away that it is not enough to explain this point with just one reason. Because it does not seem possible to find a solution to the problem without determining the causes of the change in society. Moreover, a large-scale research is needed to diagnose this change correctly.
Because society is living in a state of insanity. I think one of the factors that trigger this anger, grudge and hatred in the society is the addiction to the substance and the fact that the substance is almost idolized.
Because common values are the main factor in the formation of love and respect for each other that make societies valuable.
However, today, the common moral values that everyone in the society follows or will follow on their own have lost their former power, everyone has followed their own set of values, and as such, the common values ​​in the society gradually lose their effect.
The only valid measure to maintain order in society has become laws and the judiciary. This, as is often expressed, is getting weaker and weaker in society.
If people start to act by relying on their backs, the bandits will inevitably become influential in that society, which means that we have to wait for the social explosion as a nation in that society.
The way to do this is to find solutions to the problems of the society. Otherwise, the number of murders committed among family members will continue to increase, and it would not be wrong to say that the already weakened family ties will completely disappear.
At this point, I should immediately point out that the deepening of the economic stalemate is effective in the reflection of the conflicts on the street. It would not be wrong to say that the road we are on is a dead end when the information that the age of drug use has decreased to 10 years and 5 tons of drugs have been seized in the last 6 months.
In this respect, I do not know how to reconstruct our common value judgments and make them valid in society, but I know that it is not easy.
It would not be wrong to say that admiration for Europe, which has long been shown as the goal that our society should achieve, especially in the destruction of the common values of the society, has led to a serious fragmentation in our society.
In short, although material well-being is very important, it should not be forgotten that blessing money causes destruction in the moral values of our people.
As a result, love and respect must prevail in order to establish peace and trust in society. Otherwise, it will not be possible to reach a peaceful society, especially as long as love continues to be replaced by anger, hatred and hatred. In addition, fascination with Europe will continue to disrupt our social order, not our development, but our decline.
