See even the Iranians can see the dangers of liberal democracy, what a revelation.
In an address to the organizers of the annual ceremony commemorating the 1989 death of Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei
said that "[Ayatollah Khomeini's] thought corresponded to the Islamic political thought, which he defined as the pure Islam of the Prophet
Muhammad." Khamenei stressed the need for instilling Khomeini's doctrine in the coming generations, and said, "Loving the Imam Khomeini without
understanding his political thought is inconceivable… Despite the propaganda [against Khomeini's thought by his opponents], his political thought is
appropriate to humanity's primary needs, because the source of all human torment and suffering is the 'liberal democracy' promoted by the West as
'progressive political thought.'
"because the source of all human torment and suffering is the 'liberal democracy' promoted by the West as 'progressive political thought.', I
really like that comment.
PS: This post is meant in all good humor and in no way endorse's Iranian politics, just thought it was very funny considering politics
