Iran: August 25, 2002

Archives

:   The 41 year old son of the late shah (deposed by the religious revolution in 1979) has become enormously popular because of his regular appearances on a satellite cable TV show broadcast from the US. Reza Pahlavi (technically the crown prince of Iran) is not even a memory to the 75 percent of Iranians born after his father was forced out of the country. But he is a personable fellow who urges reform and non-violent resistance. Iran has been a monarchy for most of it's 4,000 year history and old habits die hard. There is no major movement to restore the monarchy in  Iran, but there is a desire for leaders untainted by corruption or religious fanaticism.

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
