During my dad's visit this summer, I accompanied him watching some of the Iranians movies/serial on-line as he enjoys them. Watching some of these movies prompted a discussion with my dad about the contradictory behavior of Iranians particularly inside Iran. It always baffled me how polite we can be when crossing paths with strangers/neighbors with our Tarrof, yet a normal day-to-day conversation with family members involves shouting and yelling with little sign of respect or kindness to the ones that we supposedly love most.
But this is not all just cultural, unfortunately for many of us, years of living in the West has not cured this behavior. One would think we are the generation that have experienced democracy and civil discussion as a result of living in the West yet we see day-in day-out the type of insult and jabbing at each other simply for holding different point of view.
Any one familiar with VPK on IC surly know his polite and civil manner in a given discussion, yet undo insult and disrespect example gets leveled at him simply for holding a different point of view. It is worth noting that VPK is not the only recipient of such insults and even more unfortunately this type of bullying comes from the very same people that have been beating the drum of democracy, freedom in Iran.
What gives folks?!?!?!?!
If we can not control our bullying on IC, can we ever be trusted in our march for freedom and democracy for Iran?
'Vahdat' is the key to victory
