For a very long time, power has been a “inability to manage“There is a problem. The situation is the same not only in the field of economy, but in almost all fields. The weaknesses and incompetence of the management device it uses are among the important reasons for this problem Despite this, the public is busy searching for the existence of a deep strategic mind behind every mistake the government makes. Well, people can’t believe it. How can one stay in power for twenty years? there is no such strategic spirit?

This mindset permeates all segments of society. That’s why when everyone goes to elections, the government”pull a rabbit out of the hat“he believes. In fact, this expectation is a valid reason behind our experiences.logic“It’s nothing but a quest. Of course, if he left. This understanding, which dominates public opinion, is the most important advantage of government. The easiest way to hide your weakness.

As far as I know, opposition parties are not exempt from this acceptance. So much so that since their tongues were burned in previous elections, this time”puff yogurt to eat“They started. Neither they nor the country can afford to lose another election. But for some it is a grave source of despair.

Especially the main opposition party… They listen to everyone and try to solve everyone’s problems. Trying not to hurt anyone’s feelings, he tries to generate public approval for himself in a highly polarized society.

Of course, you also need to understand them. They are solely responsible for the future of the country. Society is expectant but extremely timid. As if the opposition weren’t more adept at solving problems, people think they can protect what they have with the current understanding of power. “In any case, the change in the understanding of managementas if that’s not the most accepted action to solve problems. What should they do? Politics in our country has become accustomed to this. Everything happens as if by accepting the existing institutional framework, it was necessary to produce projects, promises and political support.

Under these conditions, the opposition, on the other hand, has sought to broaden its ranks against the government, to be more inclusive and conciliatory, with its rhetoric and actions; try to hug everyone. As the power polarizes, they attempt to unite.

Is this wrong? Not of course. But there are some left after 20 years in power. There is anger and resentment caused by grievances and injustices experienced in one part of society. A significant part of the country was condemned to its feelings and tied its hopes to the success of the opposition. Demands that should be political have turned into individual demands. Everyone has their own reasons for dissatisfaction with the government, and they want it to pass and be seen in the actions and policies of the opposition. Naturally, they lose hope when they can’t see it.

In fact, the reason for this desperation is that people cannot control their own destiny within the political structure; The reason is that our political structure does not have a democratic structure allowing people to have a say in their own destiny. The fact that politicians, who turn to civil society when they need it, sometimes listen to individual claims creates a serious problem of sincerity and trust.

The growth of issues causes individual requests to be deleted over time. People start protecting what they have and being ruled by those fears, not facing their fears that have been taught in the past. In fact, these fears are nothing but fears that have been taught to the whole society through education, traditions and culture created for the unity of the political superstructure itself and the country. The goal of politics in our country, with its government and its opposition, is to produce these fears and to resist when an intention arises that will exclude one or a group of existing actors from this staging. For this, their fears are activated. Society mobilizes around these fears. But when fears arise, hope also fades.

II. Pluralist democracy, which took hold in many developing countries after the Second World War, and in the meantime in our country, emerges as a public organization in politics and begins to function almost as a continuation of public bureaucracy. It completely excludes individuals and civil organizations or allows limited representation. So politics with its opposition and power has always been “elitist“It shows a quality. This includes today. This is how the priorities and fears of the bureaucracy spill over into politics. assigned to the statewith holiness“Public needs always come before civil needs. Although the ideas represented by political parties are different, there is no difference in terms of the public goals they serve. So “national securityIt is possible for all politicians to adopt a common position on many issues such as

Differences in domestic politics and economic issues make contact necessary when there is an obligation to cover society. There are differences in their political practices and opinions on these issues, depending on the nature of the segments with which they come into contact and receive their support. This is particularly evident in these economic issues. At a time when the public has a great weight in the economy, there is not much need for the private sector and civil society to manage the economy and defend the continuity of economic bureaucracy “journalist“An opinion can dominate politics. However, in the opposite situation, even in cases where the dominance of the private sector is high, it becomes necessary to reach out to the private sector and civil society within the limits drawn by public interests.

Especially in a society where the capitalist market system is not very developed, the private sector always wants to see the state and the state economic bureaucracy on its side, because the private sector does not know enough to be competitive on its own or it gets easier. Unable to break these ties of interest with the State, they agree to remain within the limits drawn by the requirements and the aims of this public bureaucratic structure. Today, there have been added religious sects, an outdated form of social organization. With the support of such civil organizations that have sprung up under the direction of the state, this political structure tries to maintain itself in today’s world. However, trying to maintain such a structure that does not conform to the changing conditions of the 21st century leads to serious economic problems, whether you like it or not.

The main reason for the economic problems of our country is the political structure itself, which was formed by the government and the opposition, and which was not sufficiently civilized. It would be an excess of optimism to hope for a permanent solution to our economic problems without modifying this structure.

Today “to have hopeWhat we need for “is the emergence of a political understanding that will have difficulty in changing this structure and civilizing it. Apart from this, a way of doing politics that is limited to politics of projects and promises, as the public wishes, will be the cause of an outdated understanding of politics, the fears it generates and the many economic problems it will cause.
