Inequality
Is the American dream really dead?

Research shows that poor people in the US are 20 times less likely to believe hard work will get them ahead than their (poorer) Latin American counterparts – with white Americans particularly pessimistic. What’s driving their despair....

The United States has a long-held reputation for exceptional tolerance of income inequality, explained by its high levels of social mobility. This combination underpins the American dream – initially conceived of by Thomas Jefferson as each citizen’s right to the pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

This dream is not about guaranteed outcomes, of course, but the pursuit of opportunities. The dream found a persona in the fictional characters of the 19th-century writer Horatio Alger Jr – in which young working-class protagonists go from from rags to riches (or at least become middle class) in part due to entrepreneurial spirit and hard work.

Yet the opportunity to live the American dream is much less widely shared today than it was several decades ago. While 90% of the children born in 1940 ended up in higher ranks of the income distribution than their parents, only 40% of those born in 1980 have done so...

اگر به مردگان زندگی دوباره بخشیده شود آیا میتوانند اشتباهات خود را جبران کنند ؟
من خیلی به این موضوع علاقه مند بودم که اگر به انسان ها پس از مرگ زندگی دوباره بخشیده شود ، آیا می توانند اشتباهات خود را جبران کنند یا خیر ؟

Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will Knocking on the Door come in, to you and eat with you, and you with me.

Listen!

God is trying to get your attention. This is an imperative, a command from God Himself. He wants you to pay attention so you don’t miss an opportunity to connect more fully with Him. Are you looking for God in your world? I know I often talk about scripture is our trusted source for all things God, but that doesn’t diminish His awesome presence all around us. If you think back over the last two days, can you think of a way the Lord has tried to get your attention? Maybe it was the Pastor in your church, a friend, or even your child. Maybe it was in that near miss on the highway. Maybe it was the death of a loved one

THE OBSTACLE IN OUR PATH

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.

Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many others never understand.

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one's condition.

موانع راه

در دوران باستان، پادشاهی تخته سنگی بزرگ را بر سر راهی قرار داد و مخفی شد تا ببیند چه کسی آن را از سر راه بر می دارد. تعدادی از تاجران ثروتمند و درباریانش از راه رسیدند و بدون توجه از کنار آن رد شدند. تعدادی هم پادشاه را به این خاطر که جاده ها را برای تردد مناسب سازی نکرده سرزنشش کردند. اما هیچکدامشان کاری برای کنار زدن تخته سنگ انجام ندادند. تا وقتی که یک روستایی با باری از سبزیجات بر دوش از راه رسید وقتی به تخته سنگ رسید بارش را بر روی زمین گذاشت و سعی کرد تا سنگ را به کنار جاده هدایت کند. بعد از کلی تقلا بلاخره موفق شد. وقتی داشت بارش را از زمین بلند می کرد متوجه کیسه ای در جایی که تخته سنگ در آنجا بود، شد. کیسه پر از سکه های طلا بود و یاداشتی از طرف پادشاه با خود داشت که در آن نوشته شده بود: طلا ها برای کسی است که تخته سنگ را از سر راه بردارد. روستایی چیزی را یاد گرفت که هیچ کدام از رهگذران یاد نگرفته بودند.

هر مانع فرصتی است برای بهبود شرایط.

پیام مربی والیبال آمریکا در مورد مردم ایران

Speraw on Iran and his message to Americans: “My first impression was that everyone here has been incredibly hospitable. Everyone has been very nice. They have gone out of their way to make sure that we had really nice experience here. I think we have enjoyed it tremendously. We had the opportunity to get out into the city one day. We went to the [Milad Tower] and learning a little more about Tehran, and I think that is good for us. We went to a nice lunch on the hills. I think we wanted to do those things because I think we are all aware that the portrait of the relationship between Iran and the United States is inaccurate in the media. Probably on both sides, my guess. I think, what I know and have known from spending time with Iran and the United States both last year and this year is that the relationship between the people is not reflective of the relationship between our governments and that the Iranian people are wonderful people and have treated us kindly. I think we have shown the same because America is a wonderful country with wonderful people too. Yes, it a great place, so the message we would bring back is this: it was a great trip and we look forward to coming here again. And I think we have much better understanding of what the environment is both inside the arena and outside.”

نخستین برداشت من از ایران این است که همه به شکل شگفت‌انگیزی مهمان‌نواز هستند. همه با ما خیلی خوب بودند و تلاش مفرطی داشتند که مطمئن شوند ما تجربه خوبی در این سفر داشته باشیم. من فکر می‌کنم که ما خیلی از این سفر لذت بردیم. این موقعیت رو داشتیم که در شهر گشتی بزنیم، به برج میلاد رفتیم و اندکی در مورد تهران آموختیم و فکر می‌کنم این برایمان خیلی خوب بود و غذای خوبی هم در کوهپایه‌ تهران خوردیم
ما دوست داشتیم این کارها را انجام دهیم زیرا همه می‌دانیم که چهره‌ای که رسانه‌ها از روابط ایران و آمریکا ترسیم کرده‌اند چندان دقیق نیست. احتمالا برای هر دو طرف همینطور است
چیزی که من می‌دانم و آنچه از وقت گذراندن با تیمهای ایران و آمریکا، پارسال و امسال آموخته‌ام این است که روابط بین ملت ایران و آمریکا به هیچ وجه بازتابی از روابط بین دولتهایشان نیست و مردم ایران مردمی عالی هستند که با ما با مهربانی رفتار کردند و فکر می‌کنم که ما هم همین رفتار را نشان دادیم چون آمریکا هم کشوری عالی با مردمی عالی است
بله اینجا جای بسیار خوبی است و پیامی که ما به خانه می‌بریم این است : سفر بی‌نظیری بود و بسیار مشتاقیم که دوباره به اینجا بیاییم و فکر می‌کنم درک بهتری از آنچه داخل و خارج ورزشگاه می‌گذرد پیدا کرده‌ایم.

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful To the Youth in Europe and North America, The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts. I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth. I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West. Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies. The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable. By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought? You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam. My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from. I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam. Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media? Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries? I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders. Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths. Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment. Seyyed Ali Khamenei 21st Jan. 2015
