Unfortunately American futurists basically distanced themselves from politics (1), but worse than that, the famous futurist Alvin Toffler (2), in the area of politics, promoted the neocon Newt Gingrich (3). Not all futurists took such position; for example, Daniel Bell (4), who was very old at the time of Iraq War, still took the time, and in no uncertain terms clearly distanced himself politically from his close friend the famous neocon godfather, Irving Kristol (5). Three weeks ago, Newt Gingrich, in Paris, attended a conference (6) of an Islamist cult called Mojahedine Khalgh Organization, MEK or PMOI (7).  Mojahedin opposes Islamic Republic of Iran the same way Daesh opposes the Saudi government. Mr. Gingrich compared the PMOI leader Maryam Rajavi, to George Washington. Today, Mr. Pat Buchanan who is a traditional conservative, in a very interesting short article, has best responded to this so-called "futurism" of Newt Gingrich (8). I just cannot understand why the American neocons think of MEK or restoring monarchy, when it comes to Iran!  In fact, the main reason Islamic Republic is still in power in Iran, is because of the fear of restoration of monarchy and or coming to power of Mojahedin (9). Iranians in the past 38 years have been calling for a secular democratic republic in Iran, just like Americans did more than two centuries ago, and this is the least American futurists can support (10).

Hoping for a democratic and secular
futurist republic in Iran,
