    The Iranian people were understandable rather peeved and sought to overthrow the US-imposed dictator. For pragmatic reasons the various groups trying to overthrow the dictator teamed up, and some of the more zealous religious nuts ended up in charge, so when they overthrew the dictator they put in a theocracy in 1979. The majority in Iran doesn't really support such a theocracy though,
    It doesn't matter how or why, there's always an excuse for why it just so happens that Islam always beats liberalism like a rented mule, contra your assertions to the contrary

    so over time the country has gradually backed off the theocracy and is now almost completely back to normal democracy where it was before the US interfered in the first place.
    lol iran bans women from watching male voleyball games and many of their universities recently banned female students from enrolling in some courses, and this happened in the last few years, not in 1980. This is an absurd comment on so many levels

    I'd guess that he'd prefer Islam, but only because Muslims are less destructive than liberals.
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies. There's no "this country" left with your immigration policies, your "allies" are worthless and even more suicidal than you are and democracy is a sick joke that I hope nobody ever thinks about repeating when the current order collapses. - Darth_Executor striking a conciliatory note in Civics 101

    For me personally liberalism is better but for humanity there's no question that islam (and just about anything else) is better.

    Last year was the first presidential election in which Generation Z voted, according to Brauer, “yet there was virtually no attention paid to this demographic.”
    Brauer explains that, from 2012 to 2016, Democratic candidates lost 5 percent of the youth vote nationally (down from 60 percent to 55 percent). In Florida, Democrats’ margin of victory among the young dropped 16 percentage points. In both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the drop was 19 points. In Wisconsin, 20 points. “It is unlikely that such significant drops were simply due to the more liberal millennial generation changing their minds from one election to the next,” said Brauer.

    “It is much more likely the precipitous drops were due to the more conservative Generation Z being able, for the first time, to express their political inclinations, especially in the economically hard-hit swing states.”Therefore, Generation Z possibly had a major, yet completely overlooked, impact in this historic election. “Generation Z voters were likely attracted to Trump because of his strong stances on national security and economic recovery — the main concerns of that generation,” said Brauer.

    “This generation is different, and they are about to have a profound impact on commerce, politics and trends,” Brauer concludes. “If politicians and business leaders aren’t paying attention yet, they better, because they are about to change the world.

    Kids on D.C. tours now shout the term at Johnson when she’s recording a standup in front of the Capitol. Coppins has been the target of crude epithets, physical projectiles, and online vitriol—like a photoshopped image of him in a gas chamber. BYU journalism instructor Carrie Ashton Moore (BA ’82) notes, “I saw a shirt just the other day that said, ‘Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.’”
