I had promised myself not to write anything else on this site until serious rules are put in place concerning the message boards. It's one thing to take serious responsibility for creating a place where people can interact and another to go around and say why did you say this and why did you say that! Jeez...
Anyway, I felt that I should put this up and just ask the participants not to imagine I'll moderate the thread afterwards too. I won't be able to, because I won't have the proper tools to do so... However, I might interfere here and there, and as a matter of fact I might even insult back if I'm insulted and/or provoked! And don't expect me not to call what you're writing nonsense if you go too far astray! With this in mind, here is what I have in mind -- this is an exercise for all of us to see where we are in terms of democratic thinking while it seems we all think we know and can implement democracy if/when it comes to it.
Let's say the rule of the Islamic Republic has come to an end one way or another, and you're part of a group that has to conceive the next democratic constitution of Iran. The question is simple:
Will you allow the following entities to participate in the politics of the country?
1- The hardliners of the current ruling class
2- The "reformists" of the current ruling class
3- The monarchists ("shahollahi" or not)
4- The MKO/MEK/PMOI/NCOR or whatever else they call themselves -- the Mojahedin in short!
5- The communists including Tudeh, Fadayi aksariat, aghaliat, average, gheyre average, va gheyreh
Why? Why not? Under what conditions if yes? Under what conditions if not?
Please try to remain courteous, refrain from personal attacks, and try to concentrate on the question instead of adopting an accusatory tone. Fixate the ideas, not the persons/characters. Thank you!
