I Am Within You
I am the beast that stirs in your breast.
Prosperity can tie me down.
Education can push me back.
But I wait.
The Great Lie
In the past two hundred years, an evil has infected Iranshahr as well as the whole world. Europe was infected first and as its power spread so did this disastrous concept infiltrate every corner of the Earth, either through colonial policy or by nativist reaction to European encroachment. It is a great lie that has caused wars, genocides, and chaos. This great lie is called nationalism.
