Reform Our Mentality!

Reform our Mentality
Wash the Islamic Infection out of our Persian Minds.
Why is it
that we are where we are at the end of a one way street with our
face to the wall?
Why are Iran and Iranians doomed?
Shall we begin the analysis?
Reform episode is nothing but a charade to keep the masses to
stagnate, on hold and postpone the revolution. There was a time
that Khamenei and his group were Fundamentalists and Rafsanjani
and his group were Moderates, and they battled each other. Then
Rafsanjani's moderate movement joined the Khatami's Reformists.
Now there is Khatami and his Reformists going one step further
than Rafsanjani and supposedly fighting Khamenei's Fundamentalist
group. Now we got Fundamentalists and Reformists fighting each
other. Some from other camp move to this camp and vise versa.
Rafsanjani on the other hand flirts with Fundamentalists now!
And the game goes on
Mullah episode of Fundamentalist, Moderate, and Reformist is just
another page in Iran's history to keep the public busy with superficial
freedoms within the Islamic framework (Constitution) and boundaries.
Eventually they will fight one another and some will kill one
another until the next phase of this Mullah play will be fully
played in the Islamic Theatre!
game is all good, and it develops the political knowledge and
intelligence of the Iranian people, so when the next revolution
occurs, they will not be fooled (again) by the lies of their leaders
such as Khomeini in 1979!
to Iranian people is that "Do not have so much faith in your
leaders!" and "Do not make gods out of your leaders!"
You see, we have learned this the hard way. Instead, "Have
faith in yourselves." Educate yourselves, politically and
mentally evolve yourselves, and only then, you can be sure to
trust your own judgment.
is part of the Persian culture, people of Iran have been worshiping
Reza Shah, Iraj Eskandary of Tudeh Party, Mosadeq of Jebhe Meli,
Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, Ayatollah Khomeini, Rafsanjani, then Khatami
and now somewhat Ahmadinejad!
in your brain, and you can trust your brain if you exercise it
and evolve it; therefore, you can make wise choices and stop worshiping
Heroes and creating Legends. You are the same people who ran in
the streets before 28 of Mordad and cheered for Mosadeq, two days
later you were running in streets and yelling from the bottom
of your longs: "Javid Shah" and praying for the Shah!
You are the same people that saw the picture of Khomeini in the
moon and made him the 13th Imam, but later on you became opposition
to the Islamic Republic and the Mullahs for not letting you to
play with them! You went to your own directions (Mojahed or Fedayee)!
You are the same people who were flirting with Rafsanjani (yesterday)
and now you are in the Reformist's camp. And you will be the same
people who are worshiping Khatami, Akbar Ganji and Shirin Ebadi
now and then tomorrow you will praise the next Dayus who comes
along with a better proposition for you! Is this opportunism,
Iranian style or what?!
No, I think
mostly it is not opportunism! Many of our people are opportunists
and they belong to the political party of the Wind! "Wind
Party" is a special party, which its members go towards
the direction of the wind! We go wherever the wind blows! One
day we are Monarchists, other day we are Republicans! One day
we are Communists, the next day we are Muslim! This is the part
of our Islamized Persian Heritage. What I am saying is that many
of us are just politically naive and uninformed, I go even further
and state that even the opportunist ones of us are also not politically
well developed and well educated! Why you ask? Because if they
were mature, then they would have just simply stuck with the most
logical factors for the basic human needs, which are to believe
choice, freedom of individuality, freedom of religion, freedom
of speech, freedom of political affiliation, freedom of assembly,
freedom of thought, freedom to wear anything they want, say anything
they want, listen to any music that they want, have sex with whomever
they desire, any time and any where they want, own a gun or a
rifle and go shooting any time they want, and simply do whatever
they want as long as they do not cross someone else's boundaries
of freedom. They would have simply chosen democracy, which is
perfectly developed for the human race and taste. Our people cannot
digest democracy simply because they are still not fully mature!
Some of us
were born in a democracy, grew up in a democracy, pick and use
all the fruits of democracy, yet we do not appreciate it, because
it never cost us anything to achieve it! It just simply came too
easy. Democracy came to us for free. Democracy was handed to us
as a gift, so we did not cherish it! However we will appreciate
it when we lose it! On the other hand, some of us were grown up
and lived in a bureaucratic and authoritarian society, which later
on had escaped from it. Those of us who had experienced the dictatorship
of any type, such as the Theocratic regime of the Islamic Republic,
or the Extreme Dictatorship of the Elite, such as the military
dictatorships of the Latin America, or Dictatorships of the Proletariat
(Communism), or even the extreme Nazi, Fascist or Monarchist regimes,
Those of us who fought for our freedoms, those of us who lost
our freedoms, and those of us who regained our freedoms by migrating
to a democratic country and now living in a democracy, do realize
and appreciate that how valuable is the fruit of democracy. Those
and only those, do realize the value of the precious democracy,
because without it, you are not fully human, you are just a half
man, a semi animal, an imitation of a man or a woman living under
the oppression of a dictator or an elite group of clerics or communist
or military or other thugs.
democracy go hand in hand, cause human was born free and needs
to be free. As long as society has laws and regulations, this
freedom does not become Anarchy. This freedom is the reason that
people from all over the world, escape and immigrate to the free
market countries, to democratic countries, to western countries
and to center of the freedom, United States of America.
This is why
people make reforms, make revolutions, fight for their freedom
in the third world countries, even in the second world countries.
This is why humanity cannot be chained and gagged. This is why
the human's culture of democracy, like a wind is sweeping the
whole world, including Iran! The key word is "Justice."
some of us who do not believe in democracy, this is not a surprise,
there have always been people such as this throughout the history,
but look where this took them, directly to no where land! Democracy
is humankind's historical destiny, one cannot fight an up stream
battle against the human nature. The believers of any kind of
dictatorship are either naïve, immature, not well progressed,
not politically well developed, or they simply have the mentality
of little dictators in their nature and blood! The second group
often had grown up in societies with the parents who worshiped
heroes and dictators. They believe that only a dictator or an
elite group of intelligence or cleric or leftist or
be wise enough to rule the government, and people are just mindless
and brainless objects who should be controlled! Monarchists, Mojaheds,
Muslim, Marxists and other "M" Ideologies' lovers are
amongst this group! Fascism does not grow overnight; yet it develops
throughout the decades and centuries of oppression, and in Iran's
case, throughout the millenniums of injustice! This mentality
goes generation to generation, and eventually poisons the very
brain of the society. Societies with this kind of mentality, eventually
realize that they have lost their freedom to some sort of oppressive
regime and they should reform or revolt. Yet often they do not
see the roots of the problem, and the cause of the problem.
The root and
the cause of the problem is hero worship, growing up in an environment
and with the parents and a family who believes in the Dictatorship.
Eventually these people revolt and change the system, yet they
will bring up another hero and another dictator to power, and
after a few years they get tired of being oppressed by this new
dictator or group of dictators, so they make another revolution
and bring on the next thug lord! This was the norm in Latin America
until a decade ago, yet Latin America mostly became democratic,
this is the norm in Middle East, Africa and this is the norm especially
Until we do
not develop our minds and educate ourselves and expand our brain
capacities from a single cell, looking through the "one way
sign" towards life (Reptilian Brain), we will be falling
in the darkness of superstitious, religious, proletariat, imperial,
left or right type of a dictatorship. Then we will bitch and whine
about how this regime is an oppressing entity and we want democracy!
Only by changing
our mentality of a little dictator in each Persian, we will achieve
this task, only by changing ourselves we can change Iran or anywhere
else in that manner. The ones living in a democracy do not appreciate
their freedom until they lose it, or until they go to other lands
with oppressive regimes and to experience first hand, the true
meaning of the brutality! The people in oppressed lands do appreciate
democracy and are trying to gain it!
Let's do not
forget that the only way we can reach the goal of achieving democracy
for Iran is to change our mentality of hero worship and dictatorship
first, and only then we can write prescriptions and methods for
how to change Iran. Thug is a thug, may he be a Shah, an Imam,
A Comrade Chairman, A Fuhrer or any other type of Dayus!
the end of the day, Fundamentalist, Moderate and Reformist are
all Muslim. Islam is Islam and the only Islam is the Islam, Religion
is what gets me. The only folks worth fighting for are the Working
People, the only cause worth fighting for is Democracy and the
only people I admire are my Comrades. I promise you that until
there exists injustice in Iran, I will be with you and amongst
you to fight The Injustice. There is no "If" or "But",
yet I have made this, my life's mission.
and heroes. Have faith in only yourselves. The only way which
we can change Iran and break this Chain of Dictatorship, is to
primarily, change our own mentalities.
are schooled, yet only a few are truly educated!"
to all Freedom Fighters of Iran
With the hope of freedom and democracy for Iran
Say it loud
and say it with pride:
I bow to no Gods.
I serve no Masters.
I control my own destiny.
I am a Thinking Man.
I am a Free Man.
