What is Kemalism?

Kemalism, also known as Atatürkism or the Six Arrows was the political ideology of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and the principles that define the basic characteristics of the modern Republic of Turkey.

It is divided into six principles:

- Republicanism
- Nationalism
- Populism
- Secularism
- Statism
- Revolutionism

“My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men.”

Hey Turkish007, whats your statement/view/opinion about the turkish military being the guardian of Kemalism (especially Secularism) and its role in turkish politics? As far as i know is Kemalism on many social issues centre-left and most people who identify with this position or even more further hold anti-military views (afaik Mustafa Kemal Atatürk was against military having influence in politics) but i always wanted to hear it from a todays person from turkey? :)

Kemal was a great man.
he fought with Greece in 1921 i think and only commanded 100 or 200 soldiers but still won a great victory over the Greeks who were large in numbers well equipped supported by the most powerful countries (England).

I alwyays think, that without him i won't even exist, as my biological father is turkish and my biological mother is german. Would the friendship between our two nations ever have grown? I doubt it. So he somehow is my father aswell, as i don't know my biological parents. :)
