The Persian civilization spawned three major religions: Zoroastrianism, Manichaeism (which heavily influenced Saint Augustine before he turned to Christianity), and the Bahá'í Faith. They even contributed greatly to Islam. Another religion that arose from ancient Iran is Mazdakism, which has been dubbed the first communistic ideology.

It's extremely important to purify the True Islamic Religion/Quran from all the garbage the western fuckers/crazy extremists have put on it.Except for the religious bullshit, it's not far off anarchocapitalism.Like Christianity... It doesn't HAVE TO be capitalist but note point 5. "It is forbidden in Islam to ignore the reality of contemporary times..." Contemporary times is Crapitalist times, and organized religions, for better or worse, will go with that flow.I think that there's market-based stuff in Islam that predates Western capitalism. There's also a lot that anticipates socialism. Building on Christianity. I sometimes wonder where we'd be if Islam had gone global before Christianity did.As little as I like organized religions they ARE a vehicle for moving masses of people in a given direction. Too bad psychopaths take over just as surely as they take over corporations and any other organizational structure.Yes, too bad :(
