Raging Against the Machine
We need some good news from Iran today, so here is an inspiring moment for the people on the streets. This clip (from today, according to the profile) shows very large crowds full of citizens moving barricades in the streets, lighting fires, holding their cameras, recording everything. Notice that women are in the front lines of this struggle for independence. Notice that, just this once, the people win this fight.
We are witnessing a long chess match. Both sides are capable of wins and losses, and as I've written before, this is an endurance match. Patience and courage, everyone!
