Recently there was a rumor which created lots of arguments; the
former chief of football in a sports club (who is a new
volunteer manager now for the same football club) had dinner in
the same restaurant with the referee of the match that would be
played with the rival team right on the next day.
As it is understood from the news that has been reflected to the
press, some of the administrators in the club phoned the manager
the moment they’ve heard about the incident. They said ‘’Get out
of that place immediately’’.
Now, one can think ‘’Well, so long as one is sure of oneself
what is wrong in this? I also could have been there or someone
else could have been there too’’. However those who think in
this manner are mistaken.
The reason is that those brains that have such a mentality, that
have emptied out all their contents, could not grasp these
values and this is very unfortunate. They immediately start to
think of other things.
The value judgements of the society have gone into every field.
However, this is not all what happens. For example, in this
society one cannot think of a man and a woman being friends
without having any affair (without sharing the sexuality)
So, in a way under the prevailing conditions it is nearly
impossible for two people to share the same values. Such an
atmosphere is not something that the society is being used to.
If the friendship between two people is not in parallel with the
ethical values of the society, if it cannot be defined by the
classical definitions (if it goes beyond these), then speakers
for that media start acting right away. In such a way that it
looks as if there is a great big crime which cannot be
compensated and that individual is left as an outsider, s/he is
left out .
As the Greek thinker/philosopher Plato has said ‘’for those who
are not ready to live the big events the only solution is to
take shelter among the value judgements of the society’’.
Perhaps, if we had enough belief, then would these value
judgements which are deformed, which have remained behind the
century and have no use accept wasting our time continue in the
same manner? At least would they be a hindrance for the human
being on the path to the essence?
The way to get saved from the values which have come into being
through the criteria of the past and the way for not covering up
the truth passes through leaving those value judgements forever.
Never forget to say ‘’yes’’ to this statement with all your
