Communists are very well aware that communism cannot come to power by democratic means. That is why the only thing for communism to do is to terrorize people.
Chapter 3: The Real Aim of the Separatist Movement in the Southeast Is to Be Able to Establish a "Communist Regime"
The Real Aim in Southeast Turkey is a Dictatorship of The Proletariat
"There needs to be a referendum in the east to see whether the Kurdish people want autonomy or not,"
"The best solution is a federation,"
"Terror will come to an end when autonomy is granted "...
These and similar notions in the newspapers have been, and still are, being written by journalists who are either unaware of the real threat in Southeast Turkey or who possesses a communist mindset. Some of the authors of such characterizations are apparently blissfully unaware of what will befall them, while others are trying to lay the groundwork for a communist state.
In order to warn those who are unaware of the danger and to expose the underhand stratagems of columnists with a communist mindset, let us together examine the true danger in the Southeast:
The danger is this: once a federal state is formed, when Turkey is split up, when a part of Turkish territory is set aside for the Kurds alone and when autonomy is granted in that region, this WILL SPELL DISASTER FOR TURKEY, FOR OUR KURDISH BROTHERS AND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD. The PKK's aim in demanding an autonomous state is not for Kurds to enjoy favored status there, for them to be able to freely express their own ethnic identities or for them to be able to enjoy greater physical and psychological freedom. The PKK is merely making use of our Kurdish brothers' nationalist sentiment. THE PKK'S SOLE AIM IS TO BE ABLE TO BRING ABOUT A COMMUNIST ADMINISTRATION IN THE REGION AND IMPOSE A MATERIALIST, DARWINIST, STALINIST AND LENINIST WORLD VIEW. After achieving that, it will be able to further weaken an already enfeebled and fragmented Turkey and TO SPREAD COMMUNISM RIGHT ACROSS IT. It will not take long to do that in a Turkey that has suffered profound physical and psychological wounds by giving away land. Have managed that, the limits will be exceeded for its ultimate aim: THE DREAM OF A "COMMUNIST WORLD" THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN STRIVING TO BRING ABOUT FOR DECADES.
The aim in communism is not only to rule over one region. Communists have always dreamed of a communist world state.
The PKK's true aim is to install a communist regime on the region, then to spread this to all of Turkey and prepare the foundations for a "communist world state."
In the event that a communist, autonomous Kurdish state is established, Turkey will quickly become a springboard for communists. In short, the fundamental plan in seeking autonomy in the Southeast IS TO QUICKLY BE ABLE TO OPEN UP TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD FROM TURKEY, which occupies a most important area and assumes important responsibilities.
Lenin's idea of "a state under the sovereignty of the proletariat" now represents the PKK's dream and ideal for Southeast Turkey. A state under the sovereignty of the proletariat is a machine used to crush the middle class. When the PKK establishes communist rule in the region, when it establishes a Kurdish-communist state equipped with heavy weapons, it will have achieved its aim of founding "a state under the sovereignty of the proletariat" which they claim will be founded on workers and peasants. This is the first stage. As we have seen, the important thing here is not Kurdish nationalism but a communist state supposedly under the leadership of workers and peasants, as required by communism.
But this in no way reflects the true facts. No communist state really wants an administration that values workers and peasants and wishes them to live at ease. Countries such as Russia and China are highly significant examples of this fact. The peoples of those countries suffered the worst oppression in communist times, when millions of people were imprisoned without having committed any crimes, millions of innocent people were murdered and millions more systematically and deliberately starved to death. That oppression is still going on today in communist China. Pol Pot's insanely cruel regime in Cambodia, which we have already described, forced intellectuals, workers and peasants to labor in the rice paddies, and then left them to starve to death. The communist movement that emerged in the name of "workers and peasants rights" attaches no value to human beings, and seeks to exploit workers and peasants by awarding them the status of animals. As a requirement of Darwinist logic, those who cannot be exploited are to be eliminated under this system, and so the terror and savagery continue.
This also applies to the PKK, a communist terror organization. Our Kurdish brothers or their nationalist feelings and aspirations mean nothing to the PKK. In the same way that they attach no importance to any human beings, themselves included, they attach no human importance to our Kurdish brothers, either. In the same way that Pol Pot cynically deceived his people with promises of equality and justice, so they are trying to deceive our Kurdish brothers. The communist Pol Pot regime, that used to say, "To keep you is no benefit, to destroy you is no loss," quickly and ruthlessly slaughtered 3.3 million people. In the same way that the Cambodian people meant nothing to Pol Pot, so the Kurdish people mean nothing to the PKK.
Concepts such as the state, nation and race have, in any case, no place in the communist mindset. The only concept is that of the people, the "masses." The communist mindset seeks to eliminate states and replace them with communal systems made up of peoples. Statements such as "Everything for the Kurdish nation!" are therefore merely intended to deceive. This is a technique employed by this terror organization to deceive people and encourage them to rebellion and revolution. They merely wish to use the Kurdish people as a tool of provocation. It particularly needs to be repeated that the PKK, a terrorist organization, is not a nationalist movement that espouses the rights of the Kurdish people. It is a wholly Leninist, Stalinist, Darwinist and communist terrorist organization. Once it achieves its dream of a communist state becoming reality, the first thing the PKK will turn on is the people, the innocent Kurdish people in Eastern Turkey. Such a thing cannot, of course, ever be allowed.
Communist propaganda posters try to depict everything as perfect. People are shown working happily, and workers as living happy, content lives. But the fact is that they are very far from happy. They are forced to work in great hardship in the rice-paddy fields, live in fear and terror and are constantly oppressed.
The events taking place under communist regimes are a far cry from the happy, bright pictures in the posters. Workers are forced to labor under the harshest conditions. They live under the constant threat of death and can be slaughtered for the most trivial reasons.
A Communist Autonomous State Will Seek to Perpetrate Slaughter in The Name of “Suppressing The Bourgeoisie”
The primary aim of a communist Kurdish state established in Southeast Turkey will be to "suppress the bourgeoisie" because that is what communism fundamentally requires. "The bourgeoisie" means various people they think dominate the state today. They want to realize Lenin's idea of "... rule based directly on force and unrestricted by any laws." Since they want rule based on force, the greatest need of the PKK in the Southeast at the moment is heavy weaponry and a state to provide that.
Therefore, it would be the height of naiveté to expect the separatist PKK terror organization to suddenly turn to peace. Since violence is an indispensable requirement of Marxist-Leninist thinking, peaceful solutions are always unacceptable. The PKK has acquired weapons for violence and terror. But for the PKK an unarmed form of struggle is weakness, a retrograde step and a deviation from its target. In point of fact, communists regard a climate of terror stemming from violence, terror and uprising as fertile ground for them to grow in. Because people are in a state of fear in a climate of violence, the communists make use of that fear; they are very well aware that communism can never come to power by democratic means. And there has never been any effort to try to bring communism to power by democratic means. Communism has always come to power through violence. As a result, communism never, ever regards peace as a method worth pursuing. And as a result of that, the PKK also engages in the politics of violence.
The Turkish government and the Turkish people have to understand what this terrorist separatist organization really wants in order to eliminate this threat of terror and prevent a communist uprising in Southeast Turkey. If the PKK is given any area of territory, it will try to use the "revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat" established there in order to survive, expand, strengthen and grow in all areas by applying violence against the middle class and thus the state. According to the communist mindset, all wealthy people, religious believers, soldiers, police, intellectuals, teachers, lawyers, doctors, engineers, scientists and writers are part of the "bourgeois class" in question. Therefore, this communist state they want to see established will only survive so long as all intellectuals are suppressed. The same policy as that adopted by Pol Pot will be implemented, and the entire people will be subjected to oppression, violence and terror.
Let us here have a look at the kind of results an organization based on the ideas of Lenin, whom we have already quoted, can give rise to: the autonomous state that will arise in the event the land demanded by the PKK in Southeast Turkey is given will be "maintained through the use of violence by the proletariat against the bourgeoisie," as Lenin said. And since it is "unrestricted by any laws," it will be a state entirely based on violence and that will attach no value to the laws of the Turkish state. Therefore, any autonomous Kurdish state established there must be regarded as a purely symbolic one. They will regard being run by a Turkish state from Ankara as a purely transitional stage; a Turkish state that governs in name alone will be one that effectively does not exist for them because the communist PKK will continue to enforce its own communist system, its "dictatorship of the proletariat." It will not heed the police or the military, it will recognize no laws and will abide by no agreements. It will persist with its communist uprising with all the violence, disobedience and rebellion demanded by the communist mindset, after which the state will become an entirely independent one.
In the event that an autonomous state is established in the region, that communist state will want its own police force and military and to set up its own regular army. Then it will adopt a different flag from that of the Republic of Turkey. It will use that flag, though it will perhaps allow the Turkish flag to be flown for a short period of time. The Turkish flag will continue to exist as a symbolic one, like the Turkish flags flown in other countries. The communist administration in question will also make regular demands for money from the Turkish state. All its needs will be met by the Turkish state, and that autonomous state will easily be able to arm itself. It will be the Turkish state and the citizens of the Republic of Turkey who, albeit unwillingly, give them money for troops and weapons.
This communist administration, with its own independent army and police force, which is now armed and recognizes no laws of the state of Turkey, will soon begin resorting to violence again. It will always respond to calls for peace and reconciliation with violence, terror and aggression. It will ban the ballot box and elections. It will prohibit the following of a democratic system, in other words. It will impose intense pressure on the country's leading institutions, and their sanctions will therefore be of no importance for this communist state. No law proposed or brought into force will have any effect on this communist state, because the communists in question will heed no laws or judicial process. They will respond to democratic, friendly overtures with terror, violence and rebellion, but they will never, ever heed calls for peace. Thus, in the same way that the separatist PKK terror organization cannot be put down with laws and rules in Southeast Turkey, in the event that any territory is given up, it will become even more impossible to put down as a "state" in its own right with its own army, police force and weaponry. As a state in its own right, with flag and army, it will be impossible to keep such an organization at bay through military precautions.
At this point, Turkey will suffer a heavy blow from the autonomy granted. In addition to material losses, it will suffer severe psychological trauma. A wounded Turkey that has lost its psychological belief in the homeland, the republic and the military will become an easy target for the communist state in question. The public will be put into a state of panic through violence and will have to accept what communism imposes by violence. Following that, demands for full independence will follow just as surely as night follows day. Since communist regimes make use of the existence of "peoples" and their demands in order to achieve their own aims, the communist administration in question will encourage all different peoples to demand independence and favor a communist style of administration.
Calls for independence are indeed starting to be heard from other minority peoples. Such a communist force that wants to divide Turkey in 22 regions, to produce 22 different communist regimes, and that wants each ethnic minority to have its own parliament, will also seek to use these duplicitous communist tactics to achieve power over a Turkish government that is unable to cope with it. So if the communists are given just one single piece of Turkish territory, it will be easy (may God forbid) for communism to spread right across Turkey, and from there, the whole world.
The PKK terror organization's first aim is to establish a communist Kurdish state in Southeast Turkey. But this is not the ultimate aim. It is to first turn all of Turkey communist, and then to reach out to the entire world.
The Communist State They Want to Establish in Southeast Turkey Will Seek to be a Springboard to The Rest of The World
As we have already seen, the real aim of the separatist PKK terrorist organization is to establish a communist regime, first in Turkey and then the rest of the world. All communists regard the communist regime that was set up in Russia, but that subsequently collapsed, as a failed attempt. They believe that since the Russian Revolution failed in its aim of making the whole world communist there is still some matter of unfinished business to be completed. What they essentially say is this; "We are communists. We have declared a holy war on God, religion and spiritual things (may God forbid). We hold Marxist-Leninist and materialist views. It is true that Russian communists failed to rule the world, but we will do that. We will complete the unfinished business." Therefore, their true aim in demanding an autonomous state is not to be able to live in peace, to raise families and settle down, to live with their mothers and never leave them, to drink soup or to enjoy some fine spring weather among the flowers in the park. If they do establish the communist autonomous state they seek, then the first thing communist militants do will be to split families up and establish a system based on fear and oppression. They will use force and intimidation to force all people to obey them and seek to achieve their dream of a communist world.
No communist engages in an armed struggle so he can take it easy. He does not undergo training night and day to take it easy, nor live in difficult conditions up in the mountains to take it easy. He does not slaughter innocent people or risk his own life in order to take it easy. So long as there is no change in a communist's materialist and communist worldview, he will never renounce violence and his dreams of revolution. There is no end to the revolution in communism. Another new country (or people) is always declared to be "fascist" and an armed struggle set in motion against it. Under that mindset, so long as the world exists, there must always be a communist struggle and communist violence because a communist believes there are always conflicts in society. He believes that the cycle of thesis and antithesis will always and endlessly renew itself. He therefore always believes there is a need for conflict and contradiction and the violence that is based on these. For these reasons, revolution is always ongoing for a communist. Once one place is made communist, it is the turn of the next, and so on, until the communist world state they dream of is achieved.
No communist receives training to relax in the harsh conditions up in the mountains, or wages an armed struggle in order to relax. A communist will never abandon violence and revolution. The only way of getting him to renounce terror is the elimination of the Darwinist ideology in his brain.
That is the true aim of the communist Kurdish state sought by the separatist, terrorist PKK. Their aim is not to achieve their own state, but to acquire legitimacy by establishing an autonomous state, and then to secure world rule through a series of revolutions. This has been their modus operandi since the time of Lenin.
Communists will recognize no obstacles to the achievement of their aims. They will immediately exploit the Kurdish people they have spent so many years using as a tool to impose their own ideology on the region and turn them into wretched pawns of the communist regime. Following the establishment of an autonomous communist state, the Kurdish people will find themselves subjected to the most intense oppression, violence, poverty and misery. Deaths will follow closely on one another's heels. As with all communist regimes, this communist regime will impose a reign of terror on its own people; indeed, in this fact the communists are nothing if not consistent. The most persecuted and wretched, and those suffering the worst losses, will be the very Kurdish people the communists have been cynically manipulating for many years.
Calls for peace and to an end to the violence will not even be taken seriously by the communist regime in question; they will laugh uproariously at the suggestion. This is because according to the communist way of thinking, if a communist regime feels sorry for its enemy and turns to peace, if it turns away from a government based on terror and violence, then it will collapse and cease to exist. As communist thinkers and leaders frequently state, "Communism draws its strength from violence, terror and savagery." Therefore – as at the present moment – everyone issuing calls to peace will be put down, and all calls for peace will be met with violence.
We now need to remind ourselves of the subject we looked at in detail above: the communist PKK movement in Southeast Turkey is not one that seeks Kurdish communism alone. Communism claims that only the oppressed people of the world have any sort of rights and that a dictatorship of the proletariat is required. Therefore, autonomy granted to the communists in the Southeast will soon become a scourge upon the whole of Turkey. The first target, as it opens up to the outside world after Turkey, will be for Azerbaijan and Armenia to be ruled by communist regimes. And they will start making our brothers there promises of autonomous ethnicities and independent territories there, too. The people of Azerbaijan and Armenia, who have already spent long years under the brutal yoke of communism, will begin being oppressed again. Once communist rule is established in those regions, major progress will have been made, and communism will continue to reach out to new peoples from there. Of course, it will inevitably be using the guerrilla tactics, terror, savagery and violence for which it is so infamous.
This is not some mere conspiracy theory. The same stratagems are being employed in Turkey today as were previously, and successfully, used in China, Cambodia and Russia in the 20th century. This mindset, which divided, Vietnam and Germany then and continues to divide the Korean Peninsula to this day, and created a communist structure by imposing its rule on their peoples, is exactly the same as the mindset of the PKK today. The communist uprising in Turkey is an effort to compensate for the communist movement failed in the 20th century. In other words, communists ARE SIMPLY CARRYING ON FROM WHERE THEY LEFT OFF.
There is never any change in communists' methods, strategies, guerrilla tactics or objectives. Their need for violence and savagery is always the same. They are merely seeking a suitable environment and location in order to repeat the savagery they inflicted upon mankind in the 20th century. If Turkey – may God forbid – gives land in the Southeast to the PKK, a communist, separatist terrorist organization, then it will have made the environment being sought for this policy of terror available to them. Those who say, "Let us give them some land, so we can sleep safely at home in our beds," will have seen with their own eyes the sheer savagery that results from surrendering the country's territory to a Marxist and communist terror organization, and will end up longing for the comfortable lives they enjoyed in the past.
Therefore, giving up land in the Southeast to a communist terror organization will not bring peace and ease to anyone. On the contrary, it will end in nothing but the most terrible suffering and destruction.
Today's communists want the same terror and violence as that inflicted in the 20th century. There has never been any change in communism's need for terror, or guerrilla tactics or objectives. The communist PKK in Southeast Turkey aims to do what communist China, Russia and Cambodia did in the past. Therefore, if communist terror spreads it will inflict a grave disaster on the world.
Those Who Say That “Communism is not a Danger Anymore” Are Being Deceived By The Communists
Some people in our country, just like some in the world, are unaware of the things that they might be facing and are now claiming that there is no longer any danger of communism in our day. They assume that communism was simply a scourge of the 20th century and that it had been lived through and ended in that period, and that it is no longer a threat. They are very much invested in that idea and they are neither aware of the dangers they are facing, nor able to take precautions against them. On the contrary, by saying that there is no danger of communism, they are dragging people around them into a state of complacency and thus drag themselves into that scourge as well. With such an approach, they give way to the communist mentality to easily become stronger and find a door with which to gain entry. The pages of history bear witness that communism gains strength and expands at times when people are lulled into complacency as they say, "There is no communist threat anymore" and do not take any precautions against this scourge.
People who say that, "The danger of communism ended in the 20th century" are in a state of grave delusion. Communism has never ceased to exist. So long as Darwinism continues to exist, communism will continue to exist as well. That is because fundamentally both of these rest on a shared philosophy: Dialectic Materialism. Charles Darwin adapted this thought to nature and Karl Marx adapted it to history and society. Consequently, just as in the 20th century, Marxism continues to exist today as well and so long as Darwinism continues to exist, it will never disappear from the world politics.
Indeed, at the moment, the "Darwinist dictatorship" reigns in almost all the states, educational institutions and the press. This reign nourishes the communist thought system and the system of education continues to educate communist militants without slowing down. To say it in brief, communism is only in ambush at the moment.
As we have stated before, the communists attribute the unsuccessful result of Soviet communism in the 20th century to the incorrect application of Marxism. Now they think that they can resuscitate the communist system without making those same mistakes. This thought is being advocated by many organizations, think tanks and non-governmental organizations all over the world who still believe in Marxism. Those modern communists separated the communist regimes in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc from Marxist ideology even while they still existed. They used to call the current communist regimes "real socialism," meaning practiced socialism, and claimed that the socialist ideology is not bound to these regimes and would remain a viable ideology even if those regimes collapsed.
Today they are voicing this claim even more effectively. Their claims are as follows; according to Marx, each society should go through some certain phases. They should first have feudalism, then capitalism, then socialism and then proceed to communism. However in Russia, and in the other communist regimes of the 20th century, they had a sudden transition to socialism from what were more-or-less feudal agricultural societies. The capitalist phase in between was skipped over. Consequently, according to the Marxists, it is natural for these regimes to be unsuccessful. Now with these countries embracing capitalism, the "capitalist phase" mentioned by Marx will be experienced and after that socialism will return more permanently and strongly. All communists, in their hiding places, have waited for this moment since capitalism started to rule the world.
"One step forward, two steps back"
The scenario we have stressed in the previous section is Lenin's well- known "one step forward, two steps back" tactic. According to this tactic, in order to reach their goals, communists will occasionally take a few steps back whenever it is necessary and appear as if they have distanced themselves from their goals. However, they simply wait in ambush. This principle, that Lenin wrote a pamphlet about, is being executed at the moment.
Lenin explained this situation with the following words:
"One step forward, two steps back.... It happens in the lives of individuals, and it happens in the history of nations and in the development of parties. It would be the most criminal cowardice to doubt even for a moment the inevitable and complete triumph of the principles of revolutionary Social-Democracy, of proletarian organisation and Party discipline." 56
As it can be clearly understood from these words of Lenin, it is not possible for a communist to give up communism or even to doubt communism's eventual success. At the moment, they only have taken a step back and are waiting for an appropriate moment to switch to the communist system. That appropriate moment will be the period in which capitalism has become most widespread all over the world. Among the states that practice wild capitalism, there will be a fight over capital, people will show an inclination to material things instead of spiritual values, and thus will become remote from religion. Societies becoming broadly and generally irreligious would, of course, be most advantageous for the communists. The first condition necessary for the establishment of communist societies, which is to keep people far removed from religion, moral and spiritual values, would thus ironically be ensured by the capitalist system. After this step, the duty on the communists lying in wait is to confiscate capital, neutralize the bourgeois and abolish the concepts of family and state. They believe that to realize this in an aimless and spiritually empty society which has significantly lost its beliefs and moral values would be considerably easy.
The things going on in the world at the moment are developing just in the way that communists want and wait for. Countries are practicing a most ruthless form of capitalism in the perfect sense of the word. The inclination to material possessions has genuinely caused people to drift away from spiritual and moral values and gave way to the establishment of aimless societies that are lost and far removed from the morality of religion. At the moment, the communists in Russia are making an arrangement in their own way because of the disruption in their historical order (namely, the transition to communism from capitalism). That is the reason why they have rendered the Russian public into the hands of oligarchs, plutocrats and organized criminals and prepared the way for classical capitalism. Through the system they have established, they are having their people severely oppressed and thus they are trying to make them say, "There is no other solution, the only way out is communism."
The capitalist system of life creates an effect on people that is almost similar to hypnosis because people in these societies are generally after making money, living in comfort and consumption, and they are generally not aware of the dangers waiting for them in ambush. They are not in an alert state of mind; their senses are dulled by their never-ending quest for material gain. Communists are keenly aware of this. They frequently state that people fail to realize that the communist way of thinking is gaining strength because they are consumed by their ambitions for goods and income, and thus are constantly defeated by communism. Even though they see that they will be swallowed by the communist thinking, the vast majority becomes blind because of their greed for possessions and earthly desires, and thus they lose their defensive reflexes. It is as Lenin once sarcastically remarked, "The capitalists will sell us the rope with which we shall hang them." That environment is the most suitable environment for communists to take action.
Communism Covertly Continues Its Existence
As a result of the "one step forward, two steps back" strategy, communism still covertly maintains its existence. Especially in Russia, where the entire leadership of the government and the bureaucracy consists of former communists. Those people, who are well-trained in dialectic materialism, have not given up their dreams about communism. On the contrary, those who believe that communism requires a passage through a capitalist stage are merely looking on as capitalism is practiced, in order to realize the necessity of becoming a "communist." Because they are real communists, they are practicing and advocating capitalism at the moment.
This is the situation today not only in Russia but in many parts of the world. In almost every country of Europe, communist parties maintain their existence and moreover in some countries, they are getting a quite decent share of the electorate. In almost every country of the former East Bloc, there are socialist parties managed by the former communist staff. Communist authors and artists silently continue their existence in a quiet corner and give covert messages that place a communist way of thinking into the subconscious minds of the people. In fact nothing has changed. They are only waiting patiently for capitalism to prepare the proper environment for them. Thus, they are only behaving in accordance with the recommendations of Marx.
However, perhaps the one thing that most serves the interests of communists is the economic crisis that engulfs the world at the moment. Even though until recently there was a belief that economic and democratic structures could never be harmed, the massive economic crisis plaguing the whole world, in addition to people's political tendencies, has also changed people's way of looking at life considerably. And this is an important means of advantage for communists. As it will be remembered, this was previously experienced in history as well; as the result of the Great Depression beginning in 1929, a great economic crisis occurred in the whole world, and the popularity of both communist and fascist parties in Europe increased exponentially. Communists, who evaluated the Great Depression as the "collapse of the capitalist system," thus gained the opportunity to influence the masses very easily. In their desperation, people were left obliged to accept that communism was the only way out.
Such a danger is also valid today. All the former communists waiting in ambush, the new communist groups trained by them and the communist youth are making great use of the present economic crisis. Consequently, the years that we are living in right now are highly suitable for the danger of communism to once more reassert an effective place in world politics. Most of the communist parties regard the economic crisis as an opportunity to drag their countries into the communist swamp.
