Roots of the term ARISTOCRACY are from Turkish, Part-6

(Continued from Part-5)

In the EB citing about COLOPHON, it is said that Colophon was
ruled by TIMOCRACY, that is to say by many virtuous men. In the
definition of ancient government forms, the Encyclopaedia Britannica
gives the following: [25]

"Since the days of Plato and Aristotle, governments have been
classified in a great many different ways. The Greek philosophers
adopted a scheme of classification which was compounded of a strictly
numerical criterion and a very general value judgement. In doing
this, they undoubtedly built upon an older tradition of which some
evidence survives, such as the famous discussion of the Persian king
Darius, reported by Hereodotus, and the work of the sophist Hippodamus
of Miletus. Plato saw the several forms of politeia, or political
order, as corruption of the ideal order which he delineated in the
Republic.. It has often been overlooked that he adressed himself to
the order in the polis (city) only; his classification is not supposed
to cover the political systems of the barbarians, though broadly
speaking he inclines, as most Greeks, to see these despots as
analogues to the tyrant in the polis. Tyrannos was, of all the
politeias, the worst and the most corrupt, with the tyrant himself
most unhappy of men. It is the rule of one who is completely lacking
in virtue. Its opposite is, relatively speaking, the best the rule of
one who is a man of virtue. The same distinction holds for the other
four possible political orders: if a few virtuous men rule, the
result is aristocracy; if a few unvirtuous ones, oligarchy; if many
possesing some virtue, timocracy; if many without virtue, democracy."

First of all , the above explanation indicates that the ancient Greeks
called themselves as "the civilized ones" and the rest of the Turanian
peoples who surrounded them in every direction were labelled as
"BARBARIANS". This self surving and racist definition had two aims.
When they are confronted as to the validity of their racist
definition, they would turn around and say that they do not mean
"Barbarians" are savages, but rather "they are non-Greek peoples.
Thus the term is used to distinguish Greeks from others, "that is, the
Tur peoples". Of course, this was not an honest explanation. It was
rather a slippery escape explanation. The fact was that they used the
term as a put down, as used by the westerners at present, of the
Turanian peoples.

The term "barbar", supposedly meaning "foreigner or non Greek" comes
from the fact that Turanians believed the sky-god concept of "BIR O",
that is "ONE GOD" but the ancient Greeks did not. Additionally, on
the battle field, the Turanians would shout "BIR BIR BIR ...", calling
their sky-god to help them in the fight. When an army of Tur soldiers
going into battle shout "BIR BIR ..." in unison, it becomes a source
of mental courage for the TUR/TURKS and a source of fear for the other
side. The same was done in the form of "ALLAH ALLAH ALLAH ..." during
their Islamic times. This use of "BIR BIR ..." by the Turanians must
have been distorted by the Greeks into a put down expression as
"BARBAR" and thus "Barbarian". This was the case for the term
"tyrant" as well.

The term Tyrannos initially did not mean "tyrant" as it is understood
presently. Tyrannos is said to be Lydian in origin. The term acquired
its pejorative meaning after philosophical writers being malcontent
with the autocratic habits of Alexander the Great, gave "tyranny" the
pejorative sense it still bears today. [26] Thus the "put down"
aspect of the term is added later on in describing some of ancient
Greek's own despots.

But the Greek term Tyrannos bears unusual resemblance to the Turkish
word "TURANNU" (Turanlu) meaning "one from Turan" which has
conceptually no relation with the concept of "tyrant" or "tyranny".
Yet this Greek term Tyrannos cunningly blackens the name of TURAN and
the people from TURAN (i.e., TURS/TURKS) as tyrants - which they are
not. The word "tyrannos" being Lydian in origin and also being
Turkish in the form of "Turannu" makes Lydians and Turs/Turks
"Turannu" and therefore kin to each other as they both would be
Turkish speaking TUR peoples. Actually we will see much more evidence
pointing to this Lydian and Turkic kinship in this study.

While the put down embedded in the word "tyrannos" is directed at the
native Tur peoples of ancient Greece , i.e, the so-called
"barbarians", superficially meaning those who were not "Greek"
implying the native Pelasgians and all those who identified themselves
with the Pelasgian (Tur/Turk) peoples, it is ironic to note that the
real "tyrants" were the Greeks themselves. This is quite evident from
the Greek historical writings relating the interrelations that took
place between the Ions (Ay-Hans, Yunans) of Athens and the Greeks
(Rums, Gypsy) of Sparta. While the Atheneans, that is, Ionians
(Pelasgians, Ayhans, Yunans) were much more peaceful and reasonable
and democratic in their behaviour, the Spartans were agressive and
merciless (i.e., tyrants).

As one reads the ancient Greek history, one finds many evidences that
the concept of "democracy" was by the Ions (AY-HANS, Yunans), that is,
by the Turanians, rather than the Greeks. The ancient Greeks, however,
were very skilled at usurping many concepts that did not belong to
them in the first place or did not originate with them. Greeks, like
the other wanderers, after subjugating a native group from within,
went into the shell of the conquered people, thus, taking over their
civilization and then claiming it as their own. In doing so they made
sure that they assimilate the conquered group and alienate them from
their roots. By another name, they "Hellenized" them.

Thus, this citing is important for the analysis of some of the
following political system definitions in terms of their Turkic
linguistic counterparts. The presence or non-presence of "virtuosity"
seems to have played an important role in these definitions of
political orders. With this background information, let us now examine
the structure of the names defining various political governing orders
of the ancient times.


The Webbster's Collegiate Dictionary (1947) the etymology of the term
ARISTOCRACY as being: from Greek ARISTOKRATIA made up from greek
"aristos" meaning "best" plus "kratein" meaning "to be strong, rule".
Thus it defines the ploitical system as: 1. Rule by the best; hence,
government by a relatively small priviliged class; also the ruling
body of such a government. 2. Any form of government in which the
ruling power is vested in a minority consisting, presumably, of those
best qualified to rule; also a state having such government. 3. The
nobles or chief persons in a state; a privileged class; losely, those
regarded as superior to the rest of the community, as in rank, wealth,
or intellect.

In short, it is a form of governing in which the upper rich and
so-called "noble" privileged few rule the rest of the society.

The Greek term "ARISTO", when decrypted as "AR IST O", is an anagram
of the Turkish expression "ER ÜST O" or "ÜST ER O" meaning "he is the
top man". The Turkish term "ÜST" means "the very top", "the best",
"above all". This explains clearly the source of the Greek term
"Aristo". Somehow neither the dictionary nor the Greek scholars
themselves make any reference to the true Turkish source of this
"Greek" word. Either they do not know, most likely most of the
sincere and honest linguists are in that category, or those who do
know would like to keep quite about it.

The Greek term "KRATEIN", when decrypted as "ITAREKN", is an
anagram of Turkish word "ITAREKEN" (idaregen, idare etmege aliskin)
meaning "he who is used to rule" or alternatively, "a ruler or someone
who knows how to rule". This Turkish meaning is also the same as the
given meaning of the given Greek term "kratein". Thus again the
source of the term is Turkish. Turkish word "idare etmek" means "to
rule" and the suffix -KEN/-GEN makes the word to mean "habitually to

Hence, the so-called Greek term ARISTOKRATIA is actually an anagram of
the Turkish phrase "O IDAREGEN ÜST ER" meaning "That ruler is the top
man" or "rule by the best". So the source of the word is pure Turkish
although it has been conveniently anagrammatized, that is, broken,
shuffled and disguised, into a Greek word. World has been conned

Alternatively, when the Greek term ARISTOKRATIA is decrypted as
"KORIS-AT-ITARA", it is found to be the anagram of the Turkish
expression "KURUSh-Ata ITARA" (Kurush-Ata idaresi, para-baba idaresi)
meaning "The ruling by the money-fathers (rich man)." In this anagram,
Turkish "kurush" means "money" as "kurush" was the monetary unit of
Turkish money system since ancient times. This is again in line with
the definition of the term ARISTOKRATIA and hence, ARISTOCRACY.

In fact, even the word ARISTOCRACY, when decrypted letter-by-letter as
"CORS-ITARACY" with the first "C" as "K", first "S" as "Sh" and the
second "C" as "S", and read phonetically as in Turkish, it becomes
evident that it is an anagram of Turkish expression "KURuSh ITARASU"
(kurush idaresi, para idaresi) meaning "ruling by money." In this
anagram, Turkish "KURUSH" meaning "money" and "ITARASI" (idarasi,
idaresi) meaning "the ruling" have been manupulated into the English

As noted above, Aristocratia is the political system in which money of
the rich talks. This concept was known to the ancient world
everywhere and was not Greek in origin. Greeks only anagrammatized the
Turkish expression and made a word for themselves. Related to this
word is the term ARISTOCRAT meaning "lord, nobleman, prince, member of
the ruling class, etc.."

The term ARISTOKRAT (aristokratis) when rearranged as "KORIS-ATA-RT",
is an anagram of the Turkish phrase "KORUS-ATA-eRTu" (KURUSh-ATA ERDI,
pul-ata erdi) meaning "He is money-father man", that is, he is a very
rich man. Thus with this Turkish expression the actual source of the
term "ARISTOKRAT" is also explained in Turkish. Surely, attributions
such as "lord", "nobility", "princehood", etc. come along with the

This analysis show how the Greek terms "aristokratia" and
"aristokratis" and the English terms "aristocracy" and "aristocrat"
were formed from Turkish expressions, and it also shows why the
political ruling system "aristocracy" is related to rich men.

It is interesting to find the Turkish word "kurush" embedded in the
word "Aristocrat" defined since Plato's time. "kurush" was the
monetary unit in the Turkic monetary system probably since the times
of Lydians or earlier in Anatolia. The reason for the "kurush"
connection of Turs/Turks with the ancient Lydians of Anatolia is the
fact that Lydians had a ruler whose wealth was proverbial in his own
time. He was the Lydian king CROESUS [27] voiced as "KURUSH" as in
Turkish. He minted the first Lydian gold coins known by his own name.
Thus, the King CROESUS (KURUSh) being a ruler and also a very wealthy
man was himself a "MONEY-FATHER" ("KURUSh ATA"). This would make him
an aristocratic ruler.

The Greek word for "golden" is "XRUSOUS". When we factor the bogus X
character into its KH components, we get KHRUSOUS. But KHRUSOUS, when
rearranged as "KURUSHOS", is nothing but an anagram of Turkish
expression "KURUSHUS" meaning "we are money". In Turkish monetary
system, "100 kurush made one Turkish Lira". But golden coins, i.e.,
KURUSH was the monetary system in ancient times.

All of this brings to mind the question of relation between the
ancient Turkish monetary unit name "KURUSh" and the Lydian King's name
CROESUS ("KURUSh"). They have the same meanings and phonology. This
kinship can only be explained if ancient Tur/Turk peoples and Lydians
were related people with the same ancient culture. There are
evidences that they were the same peoples. Historical and linguistic
connections between the Turkic peoples and Lydians and Phrygians who
also inhabited the Anatolian geography, are somehow broken by
intentional alterations and deceptions. Otherwise, the affinity
cannot be due to coincidence.

A similar rich man of ancient times, i.e., "money father," was PLATO
as his name indicates. In one meaning of the name PLATO, it is an
anagram of Turkish phrase "PuL ATA" meaning "Money-Father". "PUL" was
the general Turkish term meaning "money". PLATO was an extremely rich
man both from the father's side and also the mother's side. PLATO is
also known by the name "EFLATUN" in Turkish which is an anagram of
Turkish phrase "EFE ALTUN" meaning "Gold Man". So in his time he was
a rich man - not only with wealth but also with knowledge. Thus the
Turkish source for his "Greek" name PLATO and also his Turkish name
EFLATUN verify each other. Both are manufactured names from Turkish

Additionally, in a second meaning of the name PLATO is an anagram of
Turkish "PiL ATA" (Bil Ata) meaning "knowledge Father" which Plato was
according to history. Similarly, the Turkic "EFLATUN", when
rearranged as "FELATUN" with F/B translation, would be the anagram of
"BIL ATUN" ("bil adun") meaning "your name is knowlege" which again
verifies its secondary meaning. Thus the title given to or taken by
PLATO has its roots in Turkish.

Those truth searching linguists who wish to know the root of the
so-called Indo-European languages cannot ignore all of these
correspondences between the Greek terms and what I call their Turkish
source expressions. What I give in these comparisons provide a solid
explanation for the formation of Indo-European languages from Turkish
by way of anagrammatizing. When a source text is anagrammatized, that
is, encrypted and disguised, the original message is not lost but
rather preserved in a confused form. The ancient Greek
anagrammatizers, and together with them their Indo-European and
Semitic collaborators, preserved the ancient Turkish words and
expressions by way of anagrammatizing them into words for languages
that they called their own. When old sources refer to the confusion of
"languages" in Babylon, they, in a nebulous way, refer to the
confusion of "Turkish", i.e., the "Oguz language, which was most
likely the world language of the ancient times. It is no wonder that
the Turks had the saying "if one knows Turkish, one could travel
anywhere in Asia, Europe and the Middle East."

Linguists and historians of the ancient world should have the courage
to question the notion that "the European civilization is solely based
on ancient Greek and Semitic civilization." While its dark, secretive
and deceiving aspects can be traced to these sources, the rest comes
from the ancient Turanian civilization. The fact of the matter is that
the ancient world civilization was based on Turanian Sky-God Religion
(Sky-Father-God (Gök-Ata-Tanri, BIR-O), Sun-God (Gün-Tanri) and
Moon-God (Ay-Tanri)) together with its widely spoken Oguz Language,
that is, the Tur (Turkish) language. Those who brought forth new
religions in the first millennium B.C. used the tenets of the ancient
Turanian religion (e.g., its moral behaviour laws, its understanding
of good and evil, its trinity concept of God, the duality nature of
God, the wisdom of God, the uprightness and justice of God, ...) and
made sure that they obliterated that Turanian world civilization by
way of deceptions of unimaginable magnitude. That Turanian world
civilization was destroyed for political and economic gains and for
controlling the world peoples for exploitation.
