Political science itself should be practised in a perfectway that society satisfy with it. In my opinion politics is the only way toavoid any kind of conflict but at the same time the reason of many conflictswithin society. Politics is something that we individually can’t and must notignore.
Politics can be the only field in whichsociety can create freedom in the context ofindividualism and in the name of the society’s morality. I was born in a place where one side of my world wasoccupied by a religious state and the other side by a political dictatorship.Being from a place where everyday life is stuck between choosing between thelesser of two evils is the only way of expressing politics can give thesolution of third domain. I believe that the best that you can do for a societyis to develop that society very politically, to a level where radical democracycan( function)work for 24 hours. This isthe reason that I have been involved in politics since I was 18. As a humanrace we have always had social problems. One of these is gender equality whichis the first and oldest problem of the human race, persisting since thebeginning of any kind of civilization. It is an issue which goes deeper thanfeudalism, colonialism, black-white, capitalist-proletariat and climate change.
But still we can see some changes in societies where politics is the machine ofradical democracy and with knowledge of thesociety politics functions well. In observing the Arab spring and current problems like theplight of the Rohingya people , the continuing conflict in Syria, climatechange, nuclear threat, unrest in Iran, Yemen, ISIS threat, Kurdish conflictetc. we can easily see that we have many social problems to be solved, bothlocally and internationally. Doing the right politics at the right place cangive you the chance to solve these problems and I have always wanted to be partof the solution. I believe Third World War has been going on since the Arab Spring. Because all the powers around the world have never been very involved in the context of war since the Second World War. We clearly seepolitical systems have transferred from Nation-State to Nation-Company; thatwould explain why all the powers become involved in local conflicts, otherwiseit could be left as a problem of that specific country.
People have never lostthe right to information about government policies in history as we have now inthe modern-technology age. Of course I do never underestimate the will anddesire of people in revolutions but on the contrary we have witnessed manyanti-revolutions. That is the core reason why we have to establish the rightpolitical systems. Liberalism is the future system which western powers havebeen trying to establish in Middle east and Western Asia through wars andconflicts but not with economical aids and social changes. Any ordinary personcan see these conflicts and wars are the blood of our economic system withoutwhich it would not function.
Just 2 days ago a news from DW( Dutch Welle) reported that70.000 students are in prisons in Turkey. My country is currently undergoing aprocess which is comparable to 1935-40s Germany. Every person and socialstratification needs to be politicised in such times.
People are turned againsteach other as well as against religions and minorities. Violence against womenhas increased 1400% times more than ever. Nearly 400 NGOs and human rightactivists have been imprisoned in one single year. These local problemsare all because of wrong political policies. Nothing is more important thanfreedom and peace now.I was a Co-chair of HDP youth party in Turkey when Iattended my first university.
Since then, politics has been part of my dailylife and since then have witnessed many negative changes in my country, but atthe same time we have witnessed the faith of people in freedom and peace.Turkey is a prime example of a country in the grip of patriarchal-dictatorshipand where political science has turned against the society and the freedom ofits citizens.My dream is to understand political science better andimprove my political knowledge.
I do believe I will have that chance if I amaccepted to this University.
