Why Did Iranians Allow Deadly Deceit intended to thwart Iran?

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

In large part because Iran didn't have intellectuals and was a newly rising nation with a large population of young An-tellectuals "both unappreciative/holding dishonest views and iignoramuses/holding dunce thoughts" who thought they understood, yet they were and in many cases are still so unwise they didn't even know the definitions of simple words and so were/are easy to fool.  To start with Iranians need to be familiar with manufacturing dissent and consent, the role of anti monarchist opposition groups and western media in the hands of those that help elect presidents and iimplement policy (in the hands of money).  Listen to Julian Assage and you will learn alot of important truths that are concealed from the public, yet facts not conspiracies.
