Reform Of Islamic Renaissance

For a hundred years, are we grappling with the dictator or with the dictatorship? With injustice or with the oppressor? With Tyranny or with the tyrannical?
... In short: Does the struggle for the values or against persons?!
It seems that we did not grapple for values. The evidence is crystal clear, it is what Muslim nation experience today, every morning we discover a coup under many names just to replace another dictator with a dictator of different shape and color.
Most of the movements raised Renaissance, progress and prosperity as there motto but bear in their cells years of injustice, searching for vent, we revolt only because we envy the power autocracy we want to take there place.
The injustice does not start when in power although they are implemented through power, but they born in the humans during grow up, society is full of young despot who practices cruelty on every measure! Many believe that any process of dialogue is a threat to there existence! or that they possesses the corner of the undisputable truth.
The dictator ultimately comes from the fabric of the society? Is not coming from the bottom? And certainly it not come from another planet!, when the change comes to the governing Institution but still not located in mental of the nation because it never was nature of social order nor in the core values of our way of thinking we end with same status and renaissance never achieved.
Since the first century the power is transmitted mostly through the hands of the despotic to hands of another, the new have successor dictator absolute powers, the fates of people pretty much depends on the mood either dictator give a hundred dinars, or chop heads!! This is our concept of justice, this is our concept of amnesty and this is our concept of government!!!
Our history became subordination of rights by name of religion!! Then complement by the name of secularism, to march into the totalitarianism of the modern age!!
The mistakes of all renaissance projects that: All assumed that the problem existed in the ruling institution only, the crowd stood to the side of the change and tough that all they need is to be spearheaded by the righteous elites and prosperity is within reach!
It is not so as the problem exist in the conflict between the renaissance and the change, it is between the concepts stabilized in the minds of our nation, we often defended such outdated concepts and some will die in the process!!
The most serious thing is that we carry within us genetically two contradictory characters;
First: Personal authoritarian, looking for an opportunity to exercise control.
The second: oppressive acceptance personality, bondage negotiable!!
The most dangerous of that there is the conflict between these two personalities inside ourselves! And we keeps going in the orbit of tyrants and we will not be able to exercise the role of free humans!
... Rooted in the famous novel, it is the bonded slaves on the ship, they controlled all but a small boy, the boy was able to restore control of the ship with one gun, salves surrendered simply because the psychological state of slavery, when humans does not have the pride to possess the tools of the power and the pride, Slave will remain a slave as long as carrying heart of slave.
