Travel notes: Iran (The little travelers)

“There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Obama has done enough to speak out against the regime and stand with those opposing it. … I find this point of view incredibly ethnocentric and really bothersome. In that statement, there is an implied assumption that the Iranian people cannot organize themselves or have their own ideas about what they are wanting. First of all, let’s all please remember that democracy is not an American idea! Keep in mind that the very first recorded model of a democratic society came from Iran thousands of years ago!”
