“The end of the corruption of nature is the corruption of mankind”

Master writer Yaşar Kemal describes the point of the relationship between man and nature as follows: “The end of the corruption of nature is the corruption of human beings. Can we predict in advance what the corrupt, depraved, rotten humanity will do and not do? Can humanity overcome its madness and recreate nature and return to its own creativity? Shall we start crying to the end already? Or should we put our heads in our hands and join forces to save nature, to this madness?"
