Not to be that guy, but a slight correction is that it should be the 70s. The revolution took place in 1979.

And I think you are definitely right that there is a broad discontent with the various socially conservative, restrictive, religious rules. The My Stealthy Freedom movement is an indicator of that.

If you are talking to me the person that wrote Persepolis was writing about her childhood in Iran in the 80's.
common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

I thought the same after the '12 election. I thought for sure they would have to move left to fill the ranks of their dying base. But they moved right and won. I think we're all done predicting after that crap.

I think the money people realized their grip on the Grim Old Party was going to slip if they didn't buy them the '16 vote.

evidence trumps experience | performance over perfection | responsibility – authority = scapegoat | emotions motivate; data doesn't
