Iran On The American Elections and Democracy

Iran has a refreshingly original take on American elections and democracy , as reflected in its American election day editorial for influential quasi-governmental news agency Tehran Times.

The article notes the pivotal role of secret societies in democratic elections, as well as the all powerful elitist pandering that dominates the political system of the world's sole superpower.

These would be bold words for our own slavish Greek government or almost any other democracy in the world to mouth off to their political master.

Intellectually, it seems that theocratic Iran, the one Indo-European-speaking power in a sea of Turks and Semites while home to one of the world's most ancient civilization, now stands alone in the world in its challenge to the American-Israeli status quo.

"A pox on both their houses" is the common sentiment among the masses of eligible voters, who view the election as a sham controlled by corporate interests. There is very little difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. One keen analyst once said, "The Republicans take pennies from the poor to give to the rich and the Democrats take pennies from the rich to give to the poor."

This year the situation is even more bizarre, since both John Kerry and George W . Bush are members of the Skull and Bones Society, a Yale students' group that has been connected to the old boy network since the nineteenth century.

Many commentators have called this the Skull vs. Bones election -- a win-win situation for the elites and a lose-lose situation for the masses.

The Islamic world does not expect to see much change, whoever wins. Both Kerry and Bush are pro-Zionist, so the Muslims are not very optimistic about the results.

Both Kerry and Bush favor neoliberal capitalist economics, so the masses of the Third World also do not see much difference between them.

At the end of the day, this is more of a selection than an election. [Full Story]

Persia or Iran is a fine example of a civilization that has reverted to form and ,indeed, has met with its destiny.
