I am really sorry to see my countrymen trouble themselves about politics. If men were wise, the most arbitrary princes could not hurt them. If they are not wise, the freest government is compelled to be a tyranny. Princes appear to me to be fools. Houses of Commons and Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life.
I think anybody in this process needs to demonstrate how they will represent people of any faith, people of no faith, but I also think the time has come to reclaim faith as a theme, the idea that the only way a religious person could enter politics is through the prism of the religious right, I just dont think that makes sense.
Nobody is blaming the current German population for the Nazi genocide. It was blamed on Hitler's politics and vision. Similarly while it is widely accepted that the Armenian genocide is the result of the politics of C.U.P in that period, we find it clearly unacceptable to turn back on the Armenians and to put the current Turkish and Kurdish population subject to such suspicions and into a position to defend itself. (Referring to acts of Committee of Union and Progress which was the de facto ruler of Ottoman Empire during events of mass killings and deportations of Armenians.)
