  1. Actually, if it weren’t for the totally bogus component of religion in the systemm (“supreme leaders,” “hidden immans,” and mullahs or supposedly holy men have me running for my Christopher Hitchens – any of these these things that threaten my right to think and speak as I like mmake break out into rashes like you wouldn’t believe) it would be a fantastic system.
    Maybe the people of Iran are about to make a really revolutionary choice (as opposed to the rather bogus one with that gerontocratic Ayatollah presiding, back in the seventies and eighties. I suspect that the Moussavi and his supporters are about to find themselves in charge of a new regime. Hopefully, they keep all the checks and balances, which are certainly a virtue in the old regime, and simply overhaul the relgious aspect, making it either non-functional, or just a figurehead (as in the British Commonwealth’s constitutional monarchy).

  2. I don’t know where exactly it is heading, but I find it pretty great that news is filtering out from that regime via Twitter.
