Mr. Adnan Oktar draws attention to the importance that if state officials are close to the public, that they approach them with compassion and love, dine with them and show respect to the elderly and explains that when people get to know them better, this would result in greater trust and love.
Mr. Oktar’s call was very effective and many ministers and statesmen began to be closer to and more loving towards the people.

ADNAN OKTAR: Human beings are created in a way that they need compassion from childhood. Even on their mother’s lap they want compassion. When they grow up they still want compassion. Always compassion. An authoritarian form of government would traumatize people a little. It is against human nature. Rulers who are more compassionate, talkative and playful and who are closer to the people are better and this would cheer people up. This needs to be paid attention to. Being close to the people; eating like them and talking like them…

ADNAN OKTAR: I see some people who are cold as ice. They need to abandon this style of statesmanship. They don't even have a smiling effect on their faces. They are slow, with a cold expression and a cold style of talk. They don't laugh or have an expression of compassion on their faces. ALL RIGHT, THERE IS A SERIOUS ASPECT OF BEING A STATESMAN, BUT THE STATE’S COMPASSION IS OF HIGHER VALUE THEN ITS SERIOUSNESS. PEOPLE NEED THIS STATE COMPASSION. THIS COMPASSION IS ALREADY INSIDE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE STATE. THEY ARE INSEPERABLE. What do you sulk? “State seriousness.” Show some state compassion! If you try to approach people with a kind of egocentrism and lordly attitude by not looking at the face of anyone, this would cause hatred and distance.
THEY NEED TO DINE WITH THEM AT THE SAME PLACE. THEY NEED TO SIT WITH THEM. THEY NEED TO KISS THE HANDS OF THEIR MOTHERS TO SHOW RESPECT AND HUG THE GRANDFATHERS, AND EAT WITH THEM IF NECESSARY AND HAVE FUN WITH THEM: THIS IS HOW TO BE A MAN. IF THEY ADOPT A COLD STYLE THAT DISDAINS PEOPLE, THIS WOULD CAUSE GREAT HARM.
