My latest for the New Ledger:
It cannot be emphasized enough that what is going on in Iran is nothing short of remarkable. Despite the crackdown imposed by the regime, the lack of press coverage that is going on in the country thanks to the regime’s decision to kick out the foreign press corps, and the degree to which the protesters are outmatched by the awesome power of the state, the reformist movement in Iran perseveres in its effort to change the country for the better.
One just does not encounter courage like that everyday.
Behold the whole thing.
