the other clansmen. They believed that their power shouldn't be wasted on
helping others, it should be used to gain more power and rule over all of
humanity as a collective and shape the world as they wish. So these clansmen

shaping humanity and the world as they see fit. So the Eternal Clansmen saw a

embraces the counterculture's effort to create alternative social forms. Science is
not going to discover a truth that will tell us how to live. We must choose our

nature is a self-fulfilling prophecy. We need a society that offers meaningful roles
and the depth of ...

education as key to the betterment of society is not particular to Turkey. The idea
