throughout his life”talking to fear“Orhan Pamuk; “But I am not as afraid as I used to be, and I think I am justified in being afraid. I am not brave, I am afraid, but I speak fearfully. Because I’m more afraid of not speaking at all. I am ashamed… Osman Kavala is in prison, everyone is in prison, everyone is being tortured. Sadism, cruelty and cruelty have become an example. Look at what happened to the singer Gülşen. Aren’t they afraid of them? The human being is afraid, but the human being is ashamed of his fear, he talks again, he talks again. Osman Kavala is inside, HDP executives are inside, saying ‘Orhan, raise your voice’. They’re right, I’m trying to get it out, that’s it” he said.

Orhan Pamuk, who also criticizes the Turkish bourgeoisie / Turkish wealthy people, shared the following views on this issue:
“rich people of a country TUSIADThere are also. They are organized among themselves, believe me, they control many newspapers. They have a responsibility, they are also part of democracy. Personally, I don’t like rich people, I find them proud and not interesting at all, but I expected Turkish rich people to be a little more courageous. They may say to me, is it you, Orhan? I tried to be a little more outspoken. Look, Turkey is losing its bank, property, everything, its value with this silence. That bourgeoisie has also lost its wealth around the world.”
