I do not know why there is such a fascination to compare IRI to other bad regimes as if we are going to say ”ooooohhh, then IRI is not bad at all???” I think the IRI sympathizers have done a real good job of bringing in all the BADA$$ governments for comparison except the code of Hammurabi in Mesopotamia (ca. 1790 BC) where 9.9% of the codes (28 out of the 282) carried a death sentence. IRI will look very good compared to Hammurabi, if you do not count all the beatings, rapes and killings that occur outside the judiciary system in Iran.
Why not compare IRI to what Iran had when King Cyrus decreed the first human rights / rights of nations cylinder, freed the Jews and became the right hand of God in the Old Testament. King Cyrus’s law’s evolved into UN’s Charter of the Human Rights and Iran transformed into a militant theocracy where beatings, rapes and murder in the name of God are common because of one's political and social views.
Why not even compare IRI to 32 years ago when Iran did not have political freedoms, but enjoyed relaxed social freedoms if your head was not into politics. Well my friend, Iran does not have political nor social freedoms now.
Why don’t you discuss what is good for Iran going into the 21st century, and don’t make us choose the better of two evils.
