Iran’s Disenchanted Youth: Mullah Election Tactics

a created picture by Artificial Intelligence,

In an era where the Iranian regime‘s legitimacy dwindles, a crucial transformation is underway, led by the nation’s youth. The criminal mullahs, once revered as the guardians of faith, are now perceived as mere embodiments of corruption and deceit. This shift in perception among Iran’s youth is not just a passing phase; it’s a profound and irreversible societal change.

The cunning mullahs, long considered the physical embodiment of Satan by many disillusioned Iranians, are increasingly recognized for what they are – symbols of a failing system. This realization stems from a broader societal awakening, particularly among the youth, who are disenchanted with religion and faith as propagated by the regime. The current regime in Iran faces a crisis of credibility and legitimacy, particularly among the new generation. This is a generation that views the regime not with reverence, but with skepticism and even contempt.

For these young Iranians, disillusioned with religion, the deceitful and corrupt mullahs represent a bygone era. The regime’s desperate attempts to deceive the people, especially evident during the election propaganda on March 1, 2024, further alienate the youth. The modern generation of Iran is savvy and resilient, immune to the manipulations of the past. Global propaganda efforts, which rely on a facade of voting and democratic processes, fail to mask the absence of genuine democracy and freedom in Iran. The bitter truth is that brutal leaders like Khamenei and Khomeini have never genuinely earned their positions through the people’s vote, laying bare the regime’s democratic deficit.

The political landscape in Iran, dominated by hardliners and reformists, is equally disillusioning. These groups, perceived as two sides of the same coin, are united in their goal to preserve the status quo of this Theocracy. This unyielding pursuit of power, irrespective of the social and economic costs, has resulted in the formation of economic and security mafias that oppress the common people. Both corrupted factions are aware that their relevance and survival are contingent on the regime’s continuity, and with its potential collapse, their influence in Iran would diminish significantly.

The young generation has realized that these fraudsters are not representatives of any god and are the most corrupt and bloodthirsty creatures. However, they see themselves as sacred in their delusions and expect the intelligent young society to accept that they are representatives of God. But most thefts, assaults, robberies, frauds, etc., have been carried out under the supervision of these fake representatives of God. And the Islamic Republic is known as the most corrupt government of Allah on earth. So, the propaganda thinking of 1979 has no value and is disreputable among the youth.

Amidst this backdrop of political stagnation and social unrest, Iran stands on the precipice of a significant upheaval. The society, strained to its limits, is ripe for a harsh transformation. The slightest provocation could ignite a nationwide anti-regime protest, a testament to the simmering discontent and the burgeoning desire for change.

In this volatile environment, the young generation of Iran emerges as a pivotal force. Far from being mere spectators in the socio-political arena, they are actively seeking to reclaim their lost national pride and identity. The year 1979 marked a turning point when Iran’s global reputation, intertwined with terrorism due to the mullahs’ governance, overshadowed its rich 5000-year history, culture, and civilization. Today, the young Iranians aspire to disentangle their nation’s name from these negative connotations and restore its historical grandeur.

The outlaw regime of criminal mullahs in Iran, having lost its direction and control, seems clueless about its future course. The game, as it were, appears to be over, with no additional time left on the clock. The educated and alert young generation, akin to referees in this metaphorical game, are not content with being passive observers. They are determined to steer the outcome, to reshape their country’s destiny in alignment with their aspirations and values.

As the world watches, it’s crucial to understand that the ongoing struggle in Iran is not just a political conflict; it’s a generational battle for identity, freedom, and dignity. The young Iranians, armed with awareness and a vision for a better future, are not just participants in this transformation; they are its architects. The outcome of this struggle will define not only the future of Iran but also serve as a testament to the power of youth in shaping history.

The new Iranian generation is not inclined to participate in elections or governmental shows, and Khamenei resorts to every trick to again fuel his propaganda machines. However, he has lost credibility among Iranian youth and lacks legitimacy.
