Don't wait for revolution, velvet or otherwise. Don't bank on military action. Forget about reform. The only powerful enemy of the Islamic regime is and will always remain 'modernity and the free world culture'. This is the main enemy of the regime and this is what the regime fear most. Just observe how the regime fiercely fights it.
Modernity, democracy, human rights and prosperity are the only means capable of defeating the theocratic and religious regimes. This is like a rot to the regime that when set in will eat it away just like the bacteria that turn waste into compost – compost that will nourish a new and hopefully healthy growth.
The best way to fight the regime is therefore to spread the culture of modernity and free world amongst Iranians. Give Iranians, even Afghanis, Iraqis and those who are ruled by the theocratic regimes airtime in your mainstream medias. Let their music bands climb up the charts. Let their singers sing on your terrestrial TVs. Let the Iranian, Afghani and Iraqi beauty contesters win the competitions. Let their singers appear on Top Of The Pops. Give them much publicity. Then let their people back home know how their compatriots in the free world are icons to millions.
Don't underestimate the power of modernity.
