Turkeys Future Horizon: Conservative Change
It's only possible to take secure steps in to the future by making use of past experiences. Those who dedicated themselves in the construction of future always gave importance to "conservation". Those who struggle to make present and future just like the past are people who try to carry past directly into the future. Here, dilemma between rootlessness and passion of past is clearly seen. However, every soci-ety has a moral of conservation that should be used in proper time and place. So, balance between this incompleted change and conservation has always been matter of ideal and po-litical disagreements. The only thing constant is change, and some values may be sacrificed in this way and this situation also caused objections to this issue. Thinking these two terms together also caused -let's not say disappointingly- altered conservation and change. In fact some doesn't have to destroy and demolish in order to change and some can't be conservative by disregarding the "fact", hence we have to unearth the treasures of past to set balance between these terms. We should built future along with the experience of past but in a unique way. That's why we wrote about "Conservative Change".

In the history and even at the present, the provisions of justice is not making it possible to create the idea of the class balance equation by this model of the public laws and it emerges in almost of all the civilizations other than the Turks.
