The Aryan-Envy has often resulted in a cycle of neurotic behavior for us Iranians.
· First phase is the delusion of grandeur – hallucinating that we actually are blond and blue eyed Aryans, the master race, the Übermensch (Abarmard).
· Second phase is confusion and self hatred, when we realize that we aren’t recognized so by the outside world.
· Third phase is hatred towards the uncaring blond blue-eyes, who have surely somehow by conspiracies “have eaten our HAGH”.
Shah’s cronies were mostly stuck in phase 1. They performed a chimp-like imitation of the West, without understanding its strengths and merits; afflicted with the so called Westoxication.
Many young Iranians, who had a more competitive encounter with the Westerners e.g. while studying in the university, went through the second phase or the identity crisis. But the majority of those self-haters soon projected their low self-esteem (Irani Hich Gohi Nist) outwards and started to hate the West, as the source of all evil conspiracies which has kept Iran down.
I happened to know quite a number of idiots, many of them sons of the Imperial Iran’s army colonels and generals, who adamantly thought (and were actually taught) that we were Aryans, just like the Germans! Their stupid fathers had cheered for Hitler during the 2nd WW, and sincerely believed that Iran would be a Persian paradise again by killing all the camels (as Reza Shah did).
Almost all of those same idiots first turned into characterless, spiritless junkies or self-haters, when they made contact with the American society. But soon enough, most of them “evolved” to become fiery Hezbollah or Communist! Not surprisingly, right now Ahmaghi-Nezhad and his messianic cult warriors have turned out to be the #1 proponents of Persian nationalistic glory!
If the Iranian males only spend a bit more time in front of the “historical mirror”, we won’t have to attack the movie 300 or the Prince of Persia, for depicting us as darkies. Hellooooo, Persians were darkies. Don’t just take my word for it – go look at the pure Parsi of South Asia or Zoroastrians of Yazd! I’m not even mentioning the zillions of mixings with the Arabs, the Greeks and the Turks.
The blue and blonde North Europeans were the scum of earth some 1500 years ago. They looked in the mirror, found the truth about themselves and moved on. They figured that it was OK to be a mingled mixture of Anglo, German, Norman, Saxon and Dane as long as they could put one foot in front of the other and progress. Now, they consider their barbaric past as the Dark Ages, but for our crippled retards, ancient history is the Golden Age!
