Cyrus the Great and Iran Today

 cyrus.jpgCyrus the Great was a Persian king from the Achemenides family. He is considered the founder of the Persian Empire and ruled from 559 to 530 BCE. Cyrus defeated Medes and founded the Achaemenid Dynasty. He was able to conquer Lydia and the cities along the coast of Asia Minor, Babylon and Babylonia. This was the empire he built which was later on taken by his son Cambyses. Cyrus was known for being a great leader, he was able to free the Jews from Nebuchadnezzar to Babylon(which is recognized in the bible.) He won the heart of his people since he let themworship their own gods. It is said that Cyrus was the first legislative who talked about the rights of humans and wrote principles about it. He was able to create and maintain the Achaemenian Empire as an "intelligent" city. He was able to mix diplomatic, military skills and he ruled fairly with his own wisdom. He was also called the "father" of the Greeks who he conquered, the Greeks also saw him as a worthy ruler. He was considered the Persian emperor and a great human being.

"Let us dream of a day in which all Iranians — Shi’ih and Sunni, atheist
and Christian, Jew and Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Baha’i — live together
in peace, dignity, harmony and communication, a day in which the
entrepreneurs of hate fail to divide Iranians in the name of God, a day
when all Iranians, committed to democratic rights of all Iranian
citizens, perceive cultural diversity as a source of strength and
beauty, a day when once again the name of Iran is globally celebrated
as the birth-place of the Kouroshe Kabir (Cyrus the Great) and of the
charter of religious freedom and human rights. For every Baha’i, this
is not a mere fantastic dream; it is rather the destiny of this great
sacred land, the requirement of its authentic culture, and the will of
God."

Interesting! I taught a freshman class (World Studies I) last semester and this is one of the topics and rulers/empires I chose on which to focus.

The basis of our freedom of worship really is found in the Mid-East -- Cyrus is the man!!! Not many people understand this. How twisted to use belief to subdue religion particularly in that part of the world.

So what changed?
An enlightend empire to a dirt poor modern society.
I'd say a poor choice of religion.
