The mastery of the Turks in establishing a state is also expressed by the Greek Professor Dimitri Kitsikis.
“Karamanlis was telling me that we Greeks are a very inept people to run a state. We have never had a state, what was established after 1821 is not a state, the Westerners managed to take advantage of us by establishing this state, we are colonies as you said. Yes, we are an empire people, but right now only our soul is the empire.
So, who is establishing a real state? Turks are setting up. He also told me that all great states were founded by Turks. They founded the Ottoman Empire. They established the Turkish-Mongolian Empire. Who even built Beijing? Did the Chinese do it? No, the Turkish-Mongols did. In China’s last dynastic war, who was victorious in China? The Manchuro-Turkish descendants were victorious. Turks know how to organize, they are establishing a state while we only have the state spirit.” Source: Greek Turkologist Dimitris Kitsikis Explains Why Greece Should Unite With Turkey.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUcaaJKYsAg
Prof. Dimitri Kitsikis sincerely admits that the spiritual existence of the empire is not enough, and this must be done in practice, which the Turks actually did. What is at issue here is the power of organization, activating the spirit is possible with organization, this is also a public power, public power comes into play here. So it is this public power that the Greeks lack.
