Great picture from the student protests in Iran (via Oxblog ). Certainly it would be nice if the first Islamic fundamentalist state were eventually to return to the real world because life under Islamic fundamentalism is simply so ghastly . If this happens, it will obviously be a slow and painful process, but the roots of it may be there.

If this sort of thing does happen, the consequences can be astonishingly good, however. (Whatever the extent of its economic crises, one rather doubts that Argentina will return to military dictatorship any time soon. The people who lived through it last time simply will not allow it).
