Non-Violence Transformation of Power
- By Bahram Maskanian
Price of Liberty Is The Everlasting Eternal Vigilance
Evolution is a historical and gradual developmental progression leading to a higher and more sophisticated level of mental cognitive growth, analytical and intellectual advancement. Evolution is the process of evolving into something different, usually more complex and a better form of existence with enhanced range of abilities.
Silence makes rational thinking and reasoning easy and possible. Silence prevents attacks and disruption brought upon those who wish to share their peaceful message with others. Silence encourages and increases concentration and the absorption of messages for change. Silence forces and galvanizes peaceful assembly and demonstration.
Silent mass public demonstration elevates the respectability level of the marching crowd, higher than that of the crowd-control police or guards. The spirit of calm mass uprising automatically generates respect and elevates the crowd to a higher position and importance, over and above the security forces. Calm mass uprising will encourage the crowd-control police not to act with force but rather with respect towards the protesting calm crowd.
Massive Non-Violence, Complete Calm and Absolute Silent Uprising is the remedy for the liberation of Iranian people from the shackles of the mullahs' regime. It would shake the regime to its core. It would destroy the crumbling foundation of the Islamic Republic and pulverize the mullahs’ tyrannical rule. The overwhelming and powerful sight of a Massive Non-Violence, Complete Calm and Absolute Silent Uprising would put the fear of god in the heartless mullahs.
Failure or success of any massive uprising for change rests upon the behavior and presentation of those who wish to make the change. The message and its delivery system must be unambiguous and clear. The opposing forces of any such change will do whatever they can to disrupt and derail such uprising. The only way that a righteous uprising can succeed in a tyrannical ruling system is by silently communicating the message of hope and change.
Imagine the captivating powerful sight and silent energy of hundreds of thousands of people, shoulder to shoulder, determined and silently marching to communicate the message of hope and change. As far as the eye can see, people are carrying signs full of messages of peace and tranquility. The demonstrators are walking silently while communicating their message. All you can hear is the quiet hum of arms brushing against each other, the whistling of the wind blowing through the signs, the rustling of the demonstrators’ bodies, the rumbling sounds of footsteps of hundreds of thousands of people, cutting through the utter silence. The silent determination and energy underlying messages of love and hope would put the fear of God in the hearts of misguided and the hope and love and life in the hearts of the righteous.
Massive Non-Violence, Complete Calm and Absolute Silent Uprising is non-threatening and yet silently powerful. It does not agitate and it does not give the enemy ammunition to attack and violate people’s rights. Subconsciously it generates enormous amount of respect and a natural reaction of backing down.
Any other form of protest may cause disruption and acts of violence due to the nature of communication. The messages of traditional forms of political, social protest are usually carried out by loud chanting, political rhetoric, symbolic slogans, arm waving and other bodily gestures, all of which may be perceived as violent moves on the behalf of the protesters. Those who witness such demonstrations can easily become distracted and lose track of the message due to the noise and physical activity. The message becomes muddled, misunderstood and is eventually lost to the public.
Consequently, in addition to the loss of message, the protest will turn into a disorderly conduct and be perceived by the public as violent civil disorder. Those in charge of peacekeeping are easily agitated by the noise and provoked into using force against the protesters. As a result, the protest turns into a criminal activity and the message gets lost.
There are two different kinds of violence, one is unintended and the other is caused by planted individuals to provoke and cause violent behavior within the crowd. While demonstrating in a Massive Non-Violence, Complete Calm and Absolute Silent Uprising environment it would be easy to root out the agitating individuals planted by the enemy. When amongst calmly marching people, any person or persons shouting propaganda causing disturbance, tending to break shops’ windows, burning peoples’ cars, thus providing the necessary excuse for authorities to attack the demonstrating public, it becomes easy for all others demonstrating peacefully to identify and root out the enemy elements.
For every one person participating in a massive uprising, there are thousands who are agreeing and watching before taking action. I like to call them the silent majority. This silent majority needs to stay focused and understand clearly what type of message of change they are hearing and supporting.
We must have freedom from fear to become a proud and confident nation who can vote its hopes and inspirations, not its fears.
Those Who Do Not Learn From Their 1400 Years History Of The Mullahs’ And Islamic Tyrannical Rule Are Doomed To Repeat It…!
What is The Next Step; How Can We Achieve Absolute Silent Uprising?
For the past twenty-five years I have been risking my life and paying the price for my political activism, in revealing the criminal nature of mullahs, mullahs’ comrades and their criminal regime. I have no fear of dying for a noble cause, making it possible for millions of Persians / Iranians and others to live their lives fear-free. To be free is to imagine, free of fear or coercion, and to laugh and learn without fear in one’s heart.
Indeed, violence induced democracy founded by bullets, bloodshed and destruction could also be easily toppled and destroyed by bloodshed and bullets. We should not forget that those who live by the sword will be killed by the sword.
I firmly believe democracies, which are truly founded by peoples’ calm and respectful popular uprisings are the stable type with a high probability of success. That is what I would like to promote and encourage others to join me to organize.
I am absolutely positive there are thousands or even millions of Persians / Iranians in Iran and the rest of the world who are willing to give up their lives to abolish mullahs’ bloody tyrannical dictatorship.
That is exactly what the barbaric mullahs want to happen. The mullahs would love an endless opportunity to shoot and kill the opposing progressive thinkers, labeling them “terrorists” and under the banner of law enforcement and social instability putting an end to the whole idea of democracy. This does not propagate democracy. It will kill it.
The ruling brutal and criminal dictators, the Supreme Mullahs and their cronies will not surrender their power and the control of all the command mechanisms in Iran through elections. Persian / Iranian people cannot fight two different fronts, the mullah and the foreign intervention forces, at the same time.
Persian / Iranian people have no means to initiate any change as long as United States, European countries and their companies are supporting mullahs’ regime.
This Support Must Stop Now!!!
I believe the next move should be to galvanize and organize our fellow Persians and Americans around a center of gravity, a common unifying initiative and objective. I have taken the liberty of writing a model Constitution and Bill of Rights, which is posted on my website, for our fellow citizens to review, make suggestions and vote upon.
Progressive thinking Persians / Iranians are a fragmented group with lots of good ideas but sadly, with no organization cohesive and far reaching enough to bring them around the round table for a democratic exchange and discussion. I believe it is our duty to create such a think tank organization.
We need to raise funds for massive advertising campaigns in Europe and the United States to capture the public’s attention and invite them to get involved and contribute financially and or otherwise.
Massive Non-Violence, Complete Calm and Absolute Silent Uprising must be tested and demonstrated in the United States and Europe. I am positive that our fellow peace loving Americans, Europeans and Persians in a show of solidarity with the shackled people of Iran would demonstrate with us in the Absolute Silent Uprising manner in the streets of United States and Europe to illustrate its power and effectiveness to the world and to the ruling mullahs.
We must also finalize and print a model Constitution, which is essentially a platform based on which we can all agree to organize a government. Once we have a large assembly of people approving and signing the model Constitution and Bill of Rights we can all gather around it and form a strong, unified, one voice opposition to the current mullah regime.
This opposition shall have the legitimacy, strength and enough signatures to provide the ability to negotiate with good faith with foreign dignitaries and governments to stop the flow of help to the mullahs and facilitate a free, democratic and non-interventionist referendum by Iranians.
The long-reaching arm of Internet is a wonderful tool for the dissemination of information. But forming an organization requires face-to-face discussion and planning. Once we can manage to successfully create one such organizational entity in the United States, we can replicate and duplicate the same concept in all other major cities to be used as a unifying center of gravity for all people particularly Persians / Iranians.
Since the inception of the criminal regime in Iran, I have researched a variety of different ideas, political, social, and economical. History proves that one cannot set up any system of government based on past traditions and customs. Government should be established based on present social, economical and political conditions.
Government must match the criteria and spirit of the society, which it rules, therefore, obviously any regime that relies upon a one-man system as a king or Prime Minister or President is a recipe for disaster.
I think I have dealt with the issue in The Model Constitution. Click to download the Model Persian Constitution PDF version.
The era of religious, tribal wars and any other kind of silly territorial war is over. We have pushed the envelope deep and far enough to know that it is stupid and wrong. We have made marvelous advancements in killing each other in mass quantities.
Now it’s time to turn our brilliant ingenuity and creativity into repairing our damaged planet, Planet Earth. We must invent new ways, customs and traditions that fit in today’s social, economical and political conditions to govern ourselves and heal the wounds of past behavior.
Please do not hesitate to write with your comments and suggestions, and declare your readiness to join us and participate in the next plan of action.
