What's wrong with us?
What have we been doing wrong as a nation for
so long? As if married to the wrong men suffering every day
June 23, 2005
When you listen into Iranian people on a day of
election there is something unreal about it all as if we are all
moving objects in Dali's paintings of
fantasizing almost LSD-like visions of democracy as if hallucinating effect
of the temporary freedom on our people lasts one election day.
I can not
more right by comparing it with a Halloween night, which once a blue moon
you wear your masks and walk among your country men and women,
not knowing anybody
any more, in a game of pretend, wishing no one to recognize your inner most
fear, the truth.
What if a ground hog day event happens in this so
called election day till
it becomes true and real? What have we been doing wrong as a nation for
so long? As if married to the wrong men suffering every day of
hell and keeping
red by slapping ourselves politically so we won't feel the shame imposed
upon us? What psychological wrong are we caught up with that we suffer
What is wrong with our youth, seeing no worth in
themselves to fight for a change, and being fooled by titles like
us in past eight years but more financial hardships, more addicts of our
people and more prostitute of our children's? Is it true that we have more
people affected by Aids in a hush hush underground Iran?
Are we a great nation because we had history? Or
are we a mask of the past weary by times for lack of imaginations
took the clergy man as the bogyman?
it is not
our fault that one repressive regime or reign comes and lead us to deeper
mud one after another?
We have blamed every one but ourselves, haven't
we? Had no luck with religion, politics, philosophy, talent, imagination,
culture and leaderships in recent history, hey yes "down with the
just right to get us going. All the problems that Iranian in all aspects
of life are facing is due to the fact that there is a country like west,
so west like
USA that we Iranian for some reason picked to hate as our enemies to
our national heritage, religion and size!
We blame our lack of knowledge
for their medicine and their science that we detest, and we hate their
technologies, and managements, and their expertise. Because we are
the chosen one by god
himself to carry his revolution to free the world from progress?
we are anti progress.
We should be anti something in Iran. It is very difficult for any
Islamic nation to be for something.like friendship, compassion,
kindness, love, forgiveness,
learning, wisdom, and anything that resembles civility of some sort.
No we are for nothing, a nihilist in our depth,
a pessimist culture. without worry of our doomed future as long
as there is some oil to
pay the bills,
and thieves to manage the minimums of life. happy new president every
one, may no
reversal of fortune comes our ways.
What? Not voting and let the Rafsanjani become
the president again? Are you out of your mind? Our young people
have no sense of future? Their realities are senseless and short-lived
little things of
times and circumstances that opens no way to future while they
watch it on TV and internet that the world is changing and
indeed was it Entekhabat or Halloween?
