Iranian Regime has no Future
As a writer and a poet I am sensitive to details, small things, that say a lot about great things. Sometimes about peoples and states. There is much talk about the politics of the present Iranian regime, about their expansionism, their attempts to gain influence in the third world, about their nuclear project. But somewhere I read a short notice about their editing practice. I read that publishing the old Persian classics they replace wine with coffee. Well, I remember similar doings of the Soviet bureaucrats. They lived in a bubble, forcing their subjects to live in the same bubble. But the bubble burst. And I am nearly sure the bubble of the Islamic Republic will burst too. Perhaps sooner than we think.
