Ayhan Bilgen: AN APPEAL FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
The global crisis in which humanity finds itself threatens our values, our future and our nature. Despite all its achievements, representative democracy is unable to find solutions to prevent this danger. Poverty, a widening gap in income distribution, wars and conflict inevitably ignore the rights we were born with. Migration and its developments, of course, create the basis of instability and chaos in many regions, including those forced to leave their homes first, and drive all of humanity into the tension of an unpredictable future. Increasing hate speech provides nutrient for polarization and leads to rupture in politics.
The messages for ending this situation do not go beyond the old memorized sentences, the steps taken are merely for management, not for solving the problem. For this problem, which we have inherited from the past and which we will continue to face in the future, alternative political solutions must be created at regional and international level.
In order to overcome the daily polemics and the never-ending rivalry, the need for a suitable style and political language is becoming more and more noticeable every day. The construction of a social policy extends beyond the interests of a person or party and rests on everyone who feels responsible for humanity and the country.
Dealing with structural problems regarding the effective participation of the silent majority in decision-making processes requires the discussion of new methods and tools.
Trying to understand the voters who are most concerned about the current situation and who are labeled as undecided is a must for any healthy transformation in politics.
From a rights-based point of view, building a start-up policy on a social and local basis requires partnerships. It is possible for active and responsible citizens to develop a common spirit that prevents identity and cultural differences from being a source of intimidation and disputes. It is also possible to create a social conscience that can empathize with our sufferings.
Instead of easily judging, marginalizing, excluding, defining language, we need an approach that tries to recognize and understand.
An organizational ethic and work environment that is not sacrificed to narrow group reflexes or personal career calculations can only be achieved with a social mindset.
The blockade in politics forces a new evaluation of the relationship between society and politics, power and opposition, mass and organized structures. The permanent and binding legal guarantee of values such as equality, freedom and peace, which through the payment of high prices in social struggles have become common achievements of humanity, requires a program that focuses on human dignity and nature.
A pluralistic law against any kind of discrimination and privilege can only be implemented with an understanding of participatory democracy. Given the brutal practices of global capitalism, the pursuit of empowerment by authoritarian governments. Social justice and rights-based politics are a real alternative.
We invite you to create a platform on which we can freely discuss and advocate social solidarity in the face of moral corruption, alienation and political corruption, which will not change even with the change in power.
