You lost me when you used Iranian line as a reference.

That being said Iranian obsession with the past to find glory conveniently mixes the accomplishments of ancient Persia with Sassanid through Qajar Iran.

Which is where I get angry. You cannot compare sheer global domination of Persia with wh ... Read more

Only European Marxists are atheists. Iranian Marxists so far have all been Islamists too.

European Marxismy theory used nationalism as the "glue" to bind the proletariat unto the superstructure (committees) that ran all the aspects of the economy to ensure the fruits of all labor go to the workers. ... Read more

Awesome.

Two reasons Farsi isn't an internet friendly language is that fonts haven't been optimized. Mostly Farsi fonts is illegible. I did a project in this and found that Farsi 12 point is really equivalent to English 6 point. Which is why mist Farsi inline looks too reez. Which means we don't r ... Read more

The reason why Iran is seemingly not working very hard to shut down the MEK outright is that at the end if the day the MEK are doing their work for them. Namely trying to show that Iran is a Moslem country.

Never doubt that the MEK intends to rule Iran under Islam.

THEIR TREASON against Iran asid ... Read more

I can criticize us all I want. You don't have to accept or read it.

That being said please accept my analysis of the film 300 as unbiased. Rather than the well known bias of Daryaee (anti homosexual) and Farrokh who is well known for the discriminatory standards of his comments.

What if Xerxes w ... Read more

Love it.

Thanks for posting the translation. One of the goals for this reborn site should be to offer English whenever possible. We need to record our culture in the internet in a language that defense our intellectual achievements. The arabicization of Farsi and the (current) refusal of Google to ... Read more

Lovely but this is another one of my peeves about us. We revert to romantic classical poetry whenever we get nervous about a subject.

While there is wisdom in especially our poetry to be sure, it is once again a hidden secret commentary masked by vague representations and references that takes a l ... Read more

While you are spot on with your "veiled" suggestion that for a society to progress religion ought to be banned, banning religion outright(which I completely agree with) ain't gonna happen.

That's because the original witch doctor who invented it made his an ambiguously absent yet omnipresent god. ... Read more

I was actually very proud of the depiction of the Persians (not Iran) in the film 300. I saw it 3 times in the theater in order to see in full glory the masterful armies and the sheer power.

Many Iranians stayed home. Because they heard that the film showed Xerxes as a sexual deviant with disfig ... Read more

Mollahs must be superhuman with psychic powers. Because this also infects Iranians in the US.

Who are actually free.

Yes. An Iranian MIT graduate/marine pilot/NASA recruit is not the same as a book on mildly relevant philosophy by a mildly Jewish philosopher by the MIT press.

Your reference and suggestion that Iran is a wonderful philosophical paradise now, is entirely wrong. The more correct reference to Iranian ... Read more

I would agree with your hope filled naiveté (clearly you are younger than me and Ash and still have some left in you), except that especially in "Modern" Iran, Bloch is blocked. Actually Cock-Bloched to be precise.
