The current rulers of Iran have tied their fortunes to the outward form of a hard and brittle religion that does not really suit the Iranian people's actual sensibilities and is cracking and falling apart as the tectonic plates of history shift beneath this rigid edifice.  I think this insures that the social revolution that will inevitably come to Iran and is in slow growth phase there now will be deeper and more thorough than it would have been had they taken a more secular route in attempting to justify their unjust policies.  Thank you for this deeper analysis of the process.
