Happiness In Iran

Many years ago I met some Iranian students at the University of Manitoba. They were intense but fine human beings. Today, being happy is a crime in Iran. These performers are being prosecuted for putting on an obscene performance. Shame on the police chief.

It is an ancient tradition in Islam that women should cover up and not go out in public except with their families. Some ancient traditions are just wrong. Being ancient is not a figure of merit.

One Response to Happiness In Iran

  1. Mats Hagglund says:

    People in west, especially in USA might be surprised if they knew how modern Iran is ( at least in bigger cities and towns). Besides jus check the fertility rate of Iran – only 1.7. Less than in USA and even less than in Scandinavia and UK. Most of westeners are still thinking that Iran is feodal society with women breeding 6-7 children. Far from it.
