Interesting facts about Iran

Anyone interested in understanding the government of Iran must read the brilliant ten-page analysis by Nolan Drazin in the current issue of the prestigious Cambridge Journal of Political Affairs. The article is remarkably easy to read despite the vast amount of information that it contains. For example, the author cites close to 100 sources. By examining all aspects of the Iran government, he shows that Iran is a tyrannical dictatorship masquerading as a democracy. Besides being very informative, the information given is fascinating.

Among much else, he tells us about freedom, democracy, actual verses show power, the history of Iran, what prompted the Iran revolution, the unfulfilled goals of the revolution, the seeming existence in Iran of separation of powers, checks and balances, and the rule of law, the power of Iran’s Guardian Council, the sham three branches of government, political parties, the disarray of the country’s economy, gender inequality, and its weak, ineffective press.
