Another contender for Best Video of All Time. Via hilzoy, an Iranian-government propaganda video from a while back. It reveals the secret (naturally) collaboration between John McCain, George Soros ("he uses his wealth and slogans like liberty, democracy, and human rights to bring supporters of America to power"), Gene Sharp, and Bill Smith, aimed at undermining the true will of the Iranian people. (Transcript.) I especially like the part where Smith says "we have achieved a lot through international scientific conferences." It's pretty clear that Iranian security is using 1984 as a how-to guide. Spying on your family as a social good. The situation in Iran is no laughing matter; it remains to be seen whether Ayatollah Khamenei has painted himself into a corner where further large-scale violence is inevitable. Our thoughts are with the Iranian people demanding their rights of self-government.
