… everyone has paid or will pay for his or her mistake, some rightly and others wrongly. 

What we do (as people) or have done should reflect who we are.  Time might not be kind to all of us which constitutes what life is all about.  Iran is and will be important; we (the people) are transient.


She did so much for Iran

by hafez on

It is very easy to understand why Iran is in such a sorry shape once one realizes that we swapped Ms. Farah Pahlavi with Ms. Batool Khomeini.  Enough said.

This is my problem with Farah Diba: She is as superficial, and ignorant today as she was more than three decades ago.

And to think that the Revolutionaries of 79 were drawing all these silly comparisons with the French Revolution ...

>REVOLUTION DEMYSTIFIED: Truth and Lies Surrounding the French Revolution

The Shahbanou was fully aware that as an open country which allowed it's citizens to travel abroad mentalities would naturally be influenced by democratic ideals and hence the regime needed to evolve. So did the Shah as Abbas Milani seems to suggest in his Book:

MILANI ON ANDISHEH TV: "History Will Be Kind To The Shah"

The trouble was that our so called intelligentsia was essentially composed of frustrated pseudo thinkers who 'pretended' to understand the mechanisms of a democratic society and political discourse but had absolutely no idea of how to implement them or bring about the conditions which could force the government ( as opposed to the regime) to make concessions on democracy in a give and take process ...

Mashallah Ajoudani on Intellectuals and the '79 Revolution

How else can one explain then that The equally religious Poles who unlike us Iranians at the time truly lived under a Totalitarian state with no outside connection with the Free world didn't make the same mistake as Iranians ?

Solidarnosc used religion as a unifying force but never advocated a religious State in replacement of the Secular Communist One ...

Iran's Farah Pahlavi and Poland's Lech Walesa

On the contrary ...

The Polish Revolution was essentially a peaceful one which resulted to the breakdown of the entire Soviet Empire and hence subsequently served as an inspiration to all the Velevet Revolutions in the Eastern Bloc as a practical and efficient blueprint for civil dissobedience.

Contrary to the Poles The type of Intellectuals we had were the likes of Bazargan, Shariati, Yazdi and Co ... who prefered to see Iran become a Soviet Satellite by pure 'experimentation"

Unfortunately those who understood the dangers of advocating "revolution" were a vocal minority abandoned for the most by their own constituency ...
