عنوان مقاله [English]
Power has been a basic and important topic in human communities and bears a resemblance to a double-edged sword which brings prosperity on one edge and causes corruption on the other. In political thought of Imam Khomeini power has been known to be of a good origin but with regard to those having power and their purposes its output would differ. In the views of Imam Khomeini it is needed to control power to prevent it from deviation, dictatorship and corruption and provoke the system to fulfill its special task in the best manner. This control is exercised through both internal and external mechanisms. Internal mechanisms include self-purification, justice and piety while external mechanisms include amr be m`aroof (directing others to do lawful) and nahy az monkar (enjoining not to commit unlawful), consultation, advice and law. Although all political systems in the world content themselves with external control mechanisms, in the theory of Imam Khomeini heavy emphasis is put on internal mechanisms while strongly believing in the role of people as an external mechanism to control power.
