Iran Update

This story by Al Giordano (CHT Jesse Walker) gives some interesting info about what’s going on in Iran.

The interaction between the protests from the bottom and the power struggle at the top bears on the whole anti-political debate as well. On the one hand, the situation illustrates the benefit to bottom-up movements of having someone friendly on the inside up top; score one for the partyarchs, I guess. On the other hand, what’s motivating the friendly forces at the top seems to be in part a desire to get away from the “defilement” of politics; score one for the voluntaryists, I guess.
