to the eu “family”, akin to monetary in addition to political and moral, the bulk of
Turkish humans contemplate prejudices opposed to Turks because the genuine cause of their rejection: they
are (culturally) too assorted and greater than the half the eu electorate are opposed to a
Turkish club within the ecu. in its place, a “privileged partnership” is being proposed by
some conservative ecu governments (or opposing events similar to the German Christian
Democratic party), rather than a whole club. i feel “full” has to be emphasized here
because it ability a true and well-meant friendship, a step toward changing into a kinfolk member
one day instead of an insignificant political (or strategical) best friend. good, relations means that there are
less alterations, that one is sort of alike. there are numerous eu tenets in addition as
traditional perspectives which prevent a good discussion on account that Europe has but to rid itself of some
of its harmful rules (“maleficent” fictions) which set the realm ablaze within the twentieth century.
Neither Nigeria is truthfully stated, neither is (in the minds of many a eu critic)
Achebe’s writing universal5, neither is Turkey’s fourty-year previous endeavour to turn into a full
European member appropriate. there's, intellectually, an issue at the a part of Europe to
accept the assumption of equality which Achebe has been many times attempting to indicate either in his
novels and in his essays (which is similar cause, i feel, why Turkey is so not easy performed by):
feeling of superiority. this is why Achebe’s books lack the standard of common ecu (or
Western) books and is simply appropriate to Nigeria and in addition the cause of Turkey being a
second-rate nation. either one of those options display classical eu principles that might – in all
probability – end up to be fake in the course of the process the twenty-first century. so as to
support my thesis, which I admit sounds far-fetched before everything look, i'll confer with Chinua
Achebe’s bills on colonial feedback and, at any place attainable, examine them to the recent
issue in eu dealings with the opposite, i.e. the Turk. i'm going to in a while specialize in the novels
“Arrow of God” and “A guy of the People”, quite at the point of faith in “Arrow
of God” and the post-colonial phenomena of Nigeria in “A guy of the People”.
