A good expose on the real inner problems with the Iranian experiment with Islam. The state sponsored media continually suggests that things are great and quite modernist in appearance only. Which sadly has some on the outside so myopically desperate for Iran to win again, convinced too.

The negative image that Americans have of Iranians and Iran today, and the results of this survey, that shows Americans would overwhelmingly approve of annihilating Iranians using Nukes, is directly the fault of the Iranian government.

They have successfully reshaped our image into Fascist Islamis ... Read more

Not my President. Trump is an idiot. I did not vote for him, so not my problem. That's what we call "Freedom" which Iran doesn't have. In Iran you cannot speak out against politicians. Well, you can, but only one time. Also in Iran you seem to think voting for Mollahs is a good idea. So far it hasn' ... Read more

Which visitor are you quoting? Is this quote from an Iranian inside Iran? The kind who does not dare speak out against censorship for the very real fear of persecution without prosecution? Or is this a qualified certified review of the book titles available?

Hannah Arendt? Really! So you are sure ... Read more

With no lumber and paper mill natural resources left, Iran has no domestic or cheap import paper source.

Most of Iran's paper comes from China. Who is no doubt gouging Iranian publishers.

But in a country where thought crime is a legal charge, books any public social discussion are heavily censor ... Read more

...and criminals tend to ignore the law.

of all of them since 1979, the biggest mistake Iran has made was to create the conditions for another cold war, this time among Israel, Iran and possibly now the gulf states who have no choice but to consider getting nukes.

I am assuming for the sake of arg ... Read more

Yet, Iran still argues it has the right to produce Nuclear "Energy"...

I believe if you solar panelled just one of Iran's Kavirs (pick a Kavir, any Kavir), you could produce enough electricity to power Iran forever.

For free.

Tunisia had a "functioning democracy" under Ben Ali, although he became a dictator. As a result of the revolution, he fled Tunisia and the Tunisian Supreme Court took control by installing the head of Tunisia's Parliament as temporary President, until the election.

Tunisia is Islamic however, and a ... Read more

Any revolution that has a benevolent dictator improves the situation.

European Socialism and Marxism failed eventually due to the failure of Nationalism to keep it glued together. When people are fed enough (socialism spreading the output/wealth among the workers producing it) they tend to get gre ... Read more

I was only being sarcastic at your sarcasm.

But again, I think you keep missing my point. (maybe I just don't get your reply, this is a problem with non face to face debating.)

It's OK, I usually win these debates. Because I'm a Master Debater.

I agree with you totally. I just don't see Revolution as any sort of guaranteed way to happiness. Because usually, the people doing it are usually Revolting.

Also don't mistake my criticism of Mexico's 10 years of Revolution as a ... Read more

I agree with you.

But you have not named a successful revolution in which one corrupt dictatorship was NOT replaced by another corrupt dictatorship.

You cited Mexico as your only example. Mexico is your example of a successful revolution?

The problem with all revolutions is that the reality is that the people merely trade in one dictatorship for another.

This is why in my opinion, I agree with Chesterton's quote; "You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revoluti ... Read more

The FACT is that the Shah had a history of conceited selfish cowardice. And fi you play the video back, and watch ALL the body language, you can see he was a little more than a tad, "fem".
