Revolution Circa 2009

Posted on: June 16, 2009

Out of context, this seems like a reasonably interesting video. But in context, it’s moving and powerful. A regime would love nothing better than to find out who this poster is, and crush his skull. They’ve put up every roadblock they could think of up to stop this fellow from posting this video. But he still gets it out.

We’ve read these sorts of stories over and again in the past. But always, in the position of looking back toward a cold history.

But this time, history being made as I write this. I saw a poll on a site asking for a vote on what we think will be the future of Iran. 40% say the reactionaries will triumph, and crack down even harder. 40% say the reformers will prevail and bring light to this dark nation. 20% go ever farther than that.

What will decide the outcome of this nail-biter? The mood of the national army. And right now, nobody knows where that will be.

Amazing, these days in which we’re living.

for the money has gone too far
