Iran is a Theocracy. The people are different, mostly antiauthoritarian and deep-feeling, as are their everday customs.
But then again, we struggle with another type of theocracy in our midst: fifth-stage Theocracy (electronic Theocracy) as outlined in the seminal work
War in Heaven by American Medium Kyle Griffith.
Fifth-stage Theocracy is like the Borg in Trek.
Idol-worshipping can be part of that. After you die, you can either reincarnate or be hijacked to a heaven. Now whether it is a Shi'ite paradise, a
concert by Hendrix, Jesus preaching or Allah rewarding zealots - it is all the same.
None are better than the other. Some are bloodier at home, some are meaner to foreigners. And with TV, the entry of 5ST into Iran is clear. Israel is
also under Theocratic control (4St and 5ST).
The point is freedom, human and humane development of a world civilization which has beautiful music as well as colorful people of different
In contrast, Theocracies always have a paranoid setup and they point outwards collectively to some other group that is the enemy, the dark power.
These are telling signs.
The Iranians will not submit to any Western power.
The Chinese will probably break free of the vestiges of Maoism soon.
These two nations have a rich history in life strategies that may come useful in coming times. And the West has made a tremendous impact on them both.
The Shah and Khomeini were the price of Iran to enter a sort of modern development, and Maoist excesses were the price China paid. It is as terrible
as Stalinism was in Russia. But historians would point out that without excesses, they would not have industrial-driven modern societies now. So why
do not they simply integrate? The answer lies in out own zealots, neoconservatives and our generally 5ST (Fifth-stage is electronic control) society.
Believe me, the freedom and the individualism cherished in the West have already deep roots in Iran, and they are sprouting in China, and they are all
the craze in India.
A war would not serve the interests of advancing what we think of as our values in the West and what they also began to cherish. We would be also in a
harder and harder position to enforce environmental preservation if these countries are not friendly to one another.
If our own Theocratic controllers antagonize entire nations, though and if we let them - there will be war and human development is delayed. Is that
what we want? Pressure will not work on Iran or China. And the truth will eventually come out.
We armed the most suppressive regimes because our leadership believed in the gospel of economic growth to the rich investors in secret. And we
antagonized then someteimes took over oil countries.
Doe the average Westerner wants to grab his opil and place a repressive sheikh on top of a murdered hierarchy, or do you want to educate people
through culture and mutual help to on how they can implement alternative lifestyles to their particular brand of theocracy?
Chimpanzee logic always caters to fear - first chakra. We humans add manipulation - because X corp want money, your country is in danger. Thrash those
beliefs and you will find yourelf desiring simple interaction with those people instead of a military confrontation with 5ST equipment.
