The other day, our esteemed elder brother Kemal Yöndem, the head of the Samsun Saadet Party, called and stated that we were not different from the attitude of the war reporter, which was mentioned in my article titled "Robots do not understand how we are", and that we also became insensitive to the people who were exposed to persecution. It is abundance to help in good deeds, God bless our brother...
It is possible to see the society in the individual and the individual in the society… While the people hit by the war struggled to survive, the people who focused on the earnings they could gain from them did not come from space, of course, these people were born and raised in the bosom of a mother and father and in the bosom of a society. Therefore, it is possible to see the society in the individual and the individual in the society.
In an age where technology dominates our lives, the problem of depersonalization has inevitably become an issue that concerns us all. Images of violence displayed on social media, images of women murdered in the street, mothers, fathers and children shot, lives taken away by war, wounded, impoverished, and subjected to violence are displayed as if they were quoted from a dramatic film, and we, who are exposed to these images, are gradually becoming apathetic.
The transfer of violence to the media caused “conscientious blindness” and dullness by desensitizing individuals and societies. Repeated display of violent footage weakened the sensitivity of the people, people who were caught in the catastrophe when they first watched the event, began to feel numb when they watched it for the second or third time. And these people became unable to react to even the most severe images of violence after a while. Both those who experienced the pain and the viewer lost their sensitivity, people started to lie down on their comfortable chairs and watch even the most severe violence images as if watching an ordinary movie. Consciences have become dull, our hearts are hardened, and we have become indifferent to images of violence.
The distribution of responsibility dealt with by social psychology is defined as the one person reaching out to the person who needs help and the responsibility being lifted from the others. But today, individuals who are trapped in solitary cells say, instead of lifting the person who falls to the ground, someone will come out. This situation dulls the conscientious sensitivities and feelings of solidarity of the individuals. And… People are familiar with darkness, silence, loneliness, desensitization and consent to stay here. However, there is a door that opens to light and virtues outside that cell, but they do not desire it.
People captured by pain try to live with the burden of trouble on their backs. Because individuals who are trapped in solitary cells cannot see their wounds and feel their pain even if they encounter these people. How can they see, how will they feel! There is no other in a solitary cell, there is no room for the other here, so they cannot learn to share and the virtues it brings.
Tens of people who share their pain and joy are walking the same road, living in the same land, breathing the same air, but they cannot hear each other's voices and touch their pain. It is as if not a flood of people flowing in those streets, but lifeless and passive beings...
The lonely children of the island alone focus only on their own needs. Just like their lives, the troubles they carry in their breasts develop according to their own needs. In the evening, they listen to dramatic music and cry, write poems about loneliness on social media, and emphasize pain and loneliness. They talk about unhappiness, incomprehension, of being devalued and imply that they were drowned in a sea of ​​sadness. But as in their lives, there is no place for others in their troubles, the deprivation of others, the deprivation of others, the sadness of others, the needs of others... They live for themselves, they feel sad for themselves. They are despicable, left without people among the flowing flood of people. But their brains are so numb that they are not aware of their situation.
