    I disagree strongly with that notion though Iran is definitely an oppressive State though there are far worst ones.

    There are, of course, degrees to oppression. But states are, by their very nature, characterized by their ability to do violence against individuals and groups of people, and to enforce the collective will of one group over another.

    And yes, the Islamic Republic of Iran is no different in this, and arguably one of the more terrible examples.

    Although, admittedly, my view of Iran is colored strongly by dealing with Iranian refugees on a regular basis as part of my job; I imagine my view of the regime might be different if I had been fed their government-approved news instead of tales of persecution from people of ethnic and religious minority backgrounds.

    There is truth in the video and exposing of falsehood.

    How likely is this in a country where all media is heavily restricted by the people in power, with alternative takes being heavily censored, if they are allowed at all? Of course Iranian mainstream media is going to defend its system as righteous and valid, how could they not?

    I just did. You are simply refusing to engage with my response. Why?

    Is it only uncritical agreement you seek here?

    Nah, you didn't. You asking something general rather then responding to the video.

    I am asking a question directly related to the video. You clearly don't like my questions, though, so I'll stop wasting both of our time by continueing this song and dance. Have a nice day.

    Speaking of witch can you make a resumé of the content of the video in bullet point format. I don't want to watch the video in full since it's as long as a full length movie, but the conversation might be interesting.

    What's funny is your question is answered in the video, so why not take that response, and answer it. Too lazy to see video, that's fine. No one is forcing anyone to click it.

    Depends of who and when we are talking about. "The West" isn't exactly a monolith either.
