Quoted from an article entitled Beginning of the End of IRI which was published 16 years ago on July, 18, 2006:

"Only with Gorbachev do we find a man who realizes that he has to change the fundamental assumption of the whole of Russian politics, that they are the people whose mission it is to destroy capitalism - that is, America. Gorbachev has actually been several times to America and seen the reality there; he wants to show his understanding of a free people which is not aggressive towards Russia but hopes that Russia will come to her senses. And Gorbachev made an important statement when he said I want to make the people of the Soviet Union a normal people …You see, Gorbachev’s merit was to have understood that his people was not ‘normal’ whereas the American people was. The attitude is really quite different in America; they do not all the time have this horrible game in their mind."

Karl Popper: The Lesson of this Century, 1997, Page 23


Two days ago my dear friend Dr. Esmail Nooriala, founder and leader of Iranian Secular Democratic Party (ISDP),  in their weekly meetings started a new series entitled 'For a Normal Life!' This new series follows a previous series that was entitled 'Era of Alternative' and was continued for one year! I wanted to congratulate the commencement of the new series. Also the title of the program reminds me on one side about the song of 'Shervin Hajipour' which was released a few days after the government murder of Zhina #Mahsa_Amini * at the height of current revolutionary uprising in Iran and the images in the video at that time, even demonstrated the effects of tragedy of crash of Flight 752 on ordiary life of Dr. Hamed Esmaeilion, and on the other hand, it reminded me of the words of Karl Popper, 25 years ago about normal life opinion expressed by the late Gorbachev! In fact, the similarities of experiences of people who lived in the Communist countries during the 20th Century and what Iranian people have been faced with during the last 44 years, is undeniable and Iranian people can use what Karl Popper called 'Lesson of the 20th Century!' It is interesting that these realities have not escaped the attention of the people all over the world: using the song of Shervin Hajipour and other works of Art in Iran 21c Revolution; and even just about two days ago the normal life of Ms. Sarasadat Khademalsharieh, an Iranian chess master who just wants to have an ordinary life and participated in the world competitions without wearing a hijab, and the news was in all headlines all over the world!


Hoping for a democratic and secular futurist republic in Iran,
