Ultimately, Faik realizes that one creates various “monsters” on purpose to gloriously defeat them, in order to boost self-righteous egos and thus impair mankind’s ability to distinguish the existence of divine beauty in everyday life. What’s more, the dehumanizing values, which strip human traits, reduce moral sensibility and people’s aptitude for recognizing the holiness within us all.

THE POLITICS OF EXPERIENCE

“We in Europe and North America are the colonists, and in order to sustain our amazing images of ourselves as God’s gift to the vast majority of the starving human species, we have to interiorize our violence upon ourselves and our children and to employ the rhetoric of morality to describe this process.
In order to rationalize our industrial-military complex, we have to destroy our capacity to see clearly anymore what is in front of, and to imagine what is beyond, our noses. Long before a thermo-nuclear war can come about, we have had to lay waste our own sanity. We begin with the children. It is imperative to catch them in time. Without the most thorough and rapid brainwashing their dirty minds would see through our dirty tricks. Children are not yet fools, but we shall turn them into imbeciles like ourselves, with high I.Q.’s if possible.” R.D. LAING
