Zartusht rose from among the primitive Aryan societies of his day. A society that was polytheistic and drenched in tradition, superstition, and Archatic belief in practice where diviners, karpans, usiji and kavis held the people in the grip of obdurate belief. In spite of the time worn inflexible fixtures of his society, he rose against it. He declared a bloody war on all leaders who exploited the masses, the shepherds. He challenged the five worshiping diviners who sought to intoxicate the people with their sacrificial practices and primitive rituals in order to bind the masses in slavery. He repudiated the gods that clergy were using to enforce their hold on the people and immediately disbanded them. He claimed that the establishment of religion called doctrine to be nothing but lies and discarded them.
Most importantly zartusht overturned the meaning of the word religion and pious, for he taught people that there is no piety other than good deeds and that GOD is in no need of sacrifice, pleading or praise. He showed that heaven and hell exist in each and every one of us and that good and evil are but the aberrations of our minds. He stated that the creator is in no need of worship and intermediaries and that the greatest sacrifice that can be made to GOD is the following of the trilogy: good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. God can only be attained by seeking divine bearing.
Could the founder of such a revolution that upturned all the social and thought structure of his society for the first time in the world and incorporated true monotheism have been of the diviners, seers and mullahs?
No prophet with a clerical training was ever able to create a revolution on religious thoughts. In which of the schools of the clergy of his day did mohammad study? Among all those who studied in such places which one of them was able to compose popular verses as this common man? Is the meaning of popular anything other than belonging to the people? Dose it therefore mean that Mohammad’s verses belonged to the people and he who was devoid of any schooling? Had these men been of the clergy, then their training would have had no value for it would have been a mere repetition of the intractable studies of the priesthood. They would have never been able to fill the masses with the need to create a revolution. Zartusht’s massage was an honest call from within that aroused souls and forced them into movement.
The righteous who rises from among the masses is undeniably a supporter of the weak for without them evolution is not attainable. From the time state and church were created these two moved singly or in conjunction with another to exploit the masses. The one who is the supporter of the masses cannot come to terms with the state and the church. The religion of the people can not accept the state and its diviners, for if it dose, then the religion that is created is that of the leaders and not that of the people. The court, temple, leadership and diviners have always tried to keep religion as an important tool of the state in order to sanction their power. If they do not adhere to this rule, they will be destroyed.
Unfortunately, due to the tolerance of the people, their addiction to obedience and their tendency for superstition and inherited indoctrination, history has constantly witnessed the success of the church and the state. Together they have always diverted the real religions and revolutions of the people and they have incessantly risen to take command by using the very element that was to save people. Thus they have always achieved the oppression and suppression of the nations. There is no sword mightier than diverted religion to destroy the power of nations and enslave the people.
