The October issue of the National Geographic


For those who do care about the Well-Being of the Planet, the October issue of the National Geographic—the official journal of the National Geographic Society-- is an excellent read. With an image of a “Poster: CHANGING CLIMATE”; a yellow corn that can be seen as our “Growing Fuel”, the Front-Page-Cover carries a certain message of Hope, the Rise of social awareness, the benefit of Alternative approaches and the Positive Attitude in Saving our much-damaged Environment from further irreparable destruction.


In this issue you will “learn” about the difference between a “hybrid” and a “subcompact diesel automobile”, read about the latest breakthroughs in dealing with “the Carbon Crisis” and “Biofuels”, and as you go further, you’ll learn about the latest scientific research on “Infectious Animals”, and their role in spreading “zoonotic diseases" to humans which can result in “pandemics”. And to make your journey through the pages of this magazine an adventurous one, for sure; you will be “entertained” by the tale of the Pirates of Malacca.

Stay healthy, happy and postive, while taking care of this world.

What you see is...


Have you heard the latest News? I am sure you have. The news is that Larijani “the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council” has resigned. And “the good news”is that the President of the Islamic Republic is finally relieved to have had accepted Larijani’s long-awaited resignation. And the funny news is that the parliamentarians did not know about the resignation until Mr. Elham, the Spokesperson for Ahmadinejad’s administration informed them. Giving the fact that Larijani is “one of the two representatives of Ali Khamenei, the “Supreme Leader of the Revolution”, and also being “the top negotiator” on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, such resignation reveals many truths about the internal conflict inside the power-house in Iran.

When Ahmadinejad became “the sixth president of the Islamic Republic” most people took him as a joke. Some, including myself, at times, have called him names such an “imbecile,” or have described him as “a crazy ideologue,” or “the puppet of the Supreme Leader,” or an “underdog,” or “a simple-minded person with a simple-minded approach” to local politics, never mind running an ancient country! Unfortunately, so far, he has proven to be an “imbecile”. I said unfortunate for “us”, because this “imbecile” is running my country, Iran!

A simple-minded person is “not able to understand how complicated things are”, and therefore cannot be qualified to run a government that which run the affairs of the state, protect the rights of its people, defend the sovereignty of its nation over its natural resources and treasures, seas and ground borders, and so on and so forth. Ahmadinejad may be an imbecile, and I am sure he is, because of his silly, ideologolically- constructed slogans and speeches, and that’s why he is an ideologue, but having known that fact about him does not relief us from knowing that he is in power in Iran and has disregarded all nation’s right to exist with his ambitious plan of running the show with his paramilitary support. May be he thinks of this situation as a Coup d’etat, or may be I am wrong! But all I think is this that even “a simple minded person, with a simple-minded” approach has been capable of seizing an “opportunity,” and create a “situation” under which one may even dare to disregard his Excellency the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Regime!

WHAT ARE WE, THE IRANIANS, WAITING FOR?

Self-Reliance







Selected from Self-Reliance (1832-1840)

As a philosopher and transcendentalist-thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) believes that, “The relations of the soul to the divine spirit are so pure that it is profane to seek to interpose helps…if therefore a man claims to know and speak of God and carries you backward to the phraseology of some old mouldered nation in another country, in another world, believe him not…”

And as a Free man himself, Emerson believes that, “It is only as a man puts off all foreign support and stands alone that I see him to be strong and to prevail…he who knows that power is inborn, that he is weak because he has looked for good out of him and elsewhere, and, so perceiving, throws himself hesitatingly on his thought, instantly rights himself, stands in the erect position, commands his limbs, works miracles; just as a man who stands on his feet is stronger than a man who stands on his head…Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.”

A Voice



There is a voice in my head, which is too loud to ignore, too strong to my ears, an intolerable position of kind, that which has became an absolute nuisance to my consciousness.

The agitating creature who lives in mind, every now and then shouts out loud: “I don’t fit in with my own-Iranian-Community, just as I don’t feed in with my Canadian-community, Where the Fuck Should I Stand?”, and I, who is far beyond being in control of that “inquiring mind”, am left with no option but to find something to shut the voice up! And to be honset with you, I have to admit that I am quite helpless in that regard; “there is no point in shutting it up, one has to find an answer of kind,” that’s my-rational-response to that agitating voice’s inquiring. And I go along with that voice, because it is mine.

What RoxieAmerica thinks

It takes great courage, along with organization to push back against repressive leaders. It is hard to watch people accept poor conditions in Iran -- but they do so in America too. Most of the nation opposes the Iraq war, yet the Iraq war continues. The gap between rich and poor grows, but nothing it done to reverse the trend. Medical care costs have risen out of control, but nothing has been done to address the rising costs that leaving more Americans without health insurance.
Iranians have tried previously and paid a price for opposing the religious dictators. It would help if they had more international support. It would help if they could unite into one voice. So many talk, so few act... It is no easy task.

There is No Title!



It’s been a long way to come this way, but, finally, I have come to believe that “we,” (and intentionally not in capital) the so called “Iranians,” in general, don’t give two-hoots about what is going to happen to Iran, or else we should have started our own “national protest against” the invaders, the Vali-e Faquih and his entourage of Mullahs, and their special army of dumb, stupid, imbeciles(the Sepah-e Pasdaran, also known as the Revolutionary Guard) “men of means and power”.

We don’t care, because we rather wait for a miracle of kind to save us from our misery; be it a transcendental work of magic or the interference of international powers, one of these two would work for most of “us”. And, “we”, simply, don’t like to think. It is either against our “religion” or “tradition” or it may simply be a very useless act to think, because “what’s the point. The situation is far more dangerous and ruined than a simple thinking can do for us”, has become our “natural respond”.

I can see how you are reacting to the above statements, and having said all of that, I need to conclude that that “we” in lower-case, should some day be “We” in upper-case, if and when “we” decide to think for ourselves, and make decision for ourselves and be dependent only on ourselves. Or other wise, “we” may as well get “smaller” and “smaller” because of our own national helplessness which has brought “us” to this state of national sedation.
“We,” the Iranians, have no option but to think, and think without any interference of rubbish, superstitious, and judge for ourselves if what “we” have now, at this very moment in Iran, is what “we” truly deserve to suffer from, and if that’s the case, why?

Think about the recent uprising in Burma. It is sometimes a blessing to be able to learn from other nations’ plight and triumphant events, as it is the only way we learn how to rely on ourselves to solve our own Nation’s Problem(s).

The Voice of the Devil




The voice of the Devil

All Bibles or sacred codes have been the causes of the following Errors:

1. That Man has two real existing principles; Viz: a Body & a Soul.
2. That Energy, called Evil, is alone from the Body, & that Reason, called Good, is alone from the Soul.
3. That God will torment Men in Eternity for following his Energies.
But the following Contraries to these are True:
1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul; for that called Body is a portion of Soul discernd by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age.
2. Energy is the only life, and is from the Body; and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy.
3. Energy is Eternal Delight.
