Faryad from Iran

"Rebellion is the act of an educated man who is aware of his own rights." "The rebel defies more than he denies.Originally,at least,he does not suppress God;he merely talks to him as an equal.But it is not a polite dialogue.It is a polemic animated by the desire to conquer.The slave begins by demanding justice and ends by wanting to wear a crown.He must dominate in his turn.His insurrection against his condition becomes an unlimited campaign against the heavens for the purpose of bringing back a captive king who will first be dethroned and finally condemned to death.Human rebellion ends in metaphysical revolution.It progresses from appearances to acts,from the dandy to the revolutionary.When the throne of God is overturned,the rebel realizes that it is now his own responsibility to create the justice,order,and unity that he sought in vain within his own condition,and in this way to justify the fall of God."
