I was recently watching a documentary I had downloaded called, 'Filme Siah' or the Black Tape. The documentary is about the proliferation of porn film and footages, mainly homemade, in Iran. It helps you see how the lastest technology of mobile phones is being used to spread soft and hardcore porn, mainly in Tehran and how the 'authorities' in Iran are trying to prevent this.
I personally think that the IRI is main cause of most social illnesses Iran has today, however; in the documentary several people, many avarage citizens and some others involved in the law system are interviewd. Among them is the Greater Tehran Police Chief, 'Sardar Radan'.
This man is behind the harshest of measures recently put into practice in Iran, called the 'dress code'. As a very ultra-conservative individual, he has always defended his policies and measures all in the name of fighting the growing social 'corruption'. However; during the interview, he raises the following question for which I have no answer. The question was:
Why would I, record on tape the most private moments of my life? Would I do it in order to have a good 'yadegari'? If so, that must be the most meaningless 'yadegari' I could come up with.
He was referring to the growing cases of stolen 'private' tapes of couples that have been put into circulation, mainly in Tehran. Now, without approving anything this man (radan) and others of his kind do, I cannot but ask myself the same question. Why would I do that? For which I have no answer. For a moment, I considered, this: that sometimes, anyone can make a point, even the current police chief of Tehran.
