Iran's Generation Z and a Paradigm Shift

Reader comment on item: A Century of the Muslim Brotherhood

Submitted by Robert (United States), Oct 4, 2022 at 17:14

Islam and Islamism must be seen in Space and Time

Regarding Space it means States or Countries (as in the UN), and Regions, Europe, Asia, Africa, etc.

Regarding Time it means considering Demographic Cohorts, such as Generation Z.

What we see today as Current Events in Iran is the Women and Girls of Generation Z demanding a Regime Change because they do not want to be killed for how they dress, and they see how other girls and woman outside Iran have it by circumventing the censorship of the Internet by the Theocracy of their Mullahs,

This is so different from what is happening in the Orthodox Christian country of the Russian Federation today.
Putin as a Dictator or Autocrat outperformed his European predecessors (whose names I omit). It is the Christian Russian who have been turned into cattle in which Putin and his Legislature which he controls together with his army and police dictate how to behave or go to jail. Not so in Iran where the Women and Girls are now the Rebels and Leaders, and their Brothers are now their Security Guards.

You, Dr. Daniel Pipes, are educationally and temperately privileged to understand Islamic Iran. And I hope you can review the relevant work of your no less distinguished father, Richard Pipes who was an authority on Russia and the Soviet Union but unfortunately is no longer with us to explain Putin and the mind-set of the Russian People within the demographic cohort of Generation Z. Why is there no rebellion in Russia today? Why are the Russians only taking to desertion and running out of the country? What kind of Generation is this in Russia and why?

Thanks, but I had better stick to my expertise.
