Lisa Rein sez "A first-ever Persian translation of any of Timothy Leary's writings is now
available. The text, a 'Declaration of
Evolution,' is a manifesto Leary wrote for the psychedelic generation,
modeled on the 1776 American 'Declaration of Independence." It is
presented in a bilingual (Persian and English) format.
"It was first published in Leary's The Politics of Ecstasy and reprinted in
the underground press, before being published separately in 1970 as a
pamphlet by the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, who later the same year
engineered Leary's prison escape by the Weather Underground. It has been
out-of-print since then."
When in the course of organic evolution it becomes obvious that a mutational process is inevitably dissolving the
physical and neurological bonds which connect the members of one generation to the past and inevitably direc t-
ing them to assume among the species of Earth the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and
Nature’s God entitle them, a decent concern for the harmony of species requires that the causes of the mutation
should be declared.
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
That all species are created different but equal;
That they are endowed, each one, with certain inalienable rights;
That among them are Freedom to Live, Freedom to Grow, and Freedom to pursue Happiness in their own style;
That to protect these God-given rights, social structures naturally emerge, basing their authority on the principles
of love of God and respect for all forms of life;
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of life, liberty, and harmony, it is the organic duty
of the young members of that species to mutate, to drop out, to initiate a new social structure, laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its power in such form as seems likely to produce the safety, happiness,
and harmony of all sentient beings.
