 THE IRANIAN: Ahmad Shah, Manoutchehr Eskandari-Qajar
With the fall of Soltan Ahmad Shah and the rise of Reza Khan to the position of Shah, the authoritarian personality won out over the libertarian, but this victory was a pyrrhic one for the Persian psyche, for in giving in to the authoritarian in itself, it lost its libertarian soul in the process.
In both cases, Soltan Ahmad Shah refused because the price of accepting was too high for a man who was the legitimate constitutional monarch of his country who had lived his life as a staunch believer in the rule of law, not of force.
In all this, Soltan Ahmad Shah distinguishes himself from his two successors admirably and it is for this reason that I have cited these examples as worthy of consideration and admiration as the actions of an honorable man who wished to be the king of a prospering nation, but not at any price.
