The leading proponents of the “Green Movement” or at least the ones with the most media exposure have begun verbalizing their goal. It seems the movement is not about any fundamental change of governance in IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic; rather, it is a reformation of the existing system.
True, many key elements of a democracy as understood by conventional wisdom is woven into their dogma, but they are all piggybacked on a reconfigured version of the 1979 Islamic revolution.
In other words, using the familiar expression of the New Year season, for all intents and purposes the “Green Movement” as defined by these leading supporters is the regifting of the much touted and failed Islamist “reformation” movement within the confines of IRR.
Should this reading of the “Green Movement” pan out, just like its predecessor, it will be incapable of being all inclusive, will begin to lose its mass appeal and be limited to Islamists with different vision of IRR than the faction which has the upper hand.
If so, wouldn’t it be the umpteenth try at marrying the irreconcilable doctrines of religion and democratic governance?
Would it ever be possible, it has yet not been so anywhere, to have such union in which religion, any religions, even the interpretive version of one wear the pants in such marriage?
Why Iran and Iranians get to be the Ginny pig for this foolish experimentation?
