    • Iran recently erupted in country-wide protests.
    • Anti-government protestors turned to the same target: the wealthy elite.
    • Iranian millennials hardly keep their wealth a secret, especially in the age of social media.

    Iran recently erupted in country-wide protests that brought out both anti- and pro-government forces.

    The demonstrators in Iran mobilized against everything from the government to the economic woes of the country. Gradually, across the country, anti-government protestors turned to the same target: a wealthy elite that has reaped the benefits of a top-down theocratic regime.

    At least a part of this seems to have been spurred by a new openness from Iranian millennials, who hardly keep their wealth a secret, especially in the age of social media.

    "When the occasional Maserati roars through the crowded streets of Tehran, past crowded buses and shabby domestic sedans, pedestrians sometimes unleash streams of curses in its wake," Shashank Bengali and Ramin Mostaghim write in the Los Angeles Times.

    The LA Times used the popular "Rich Kids of Tehran" Instagram account as an example, where "attractive 20-somethings flaunt $1,000 Hermes sandals and frolic poolside at lavish mansions in a capital where, perhaps in another part of town, the desperate hawk their own kidneys to feed their families.

    as wealth inequality continues to rise, the mass will assemble. it's inevitable.

    we are entering a new era of wealth disparity.

    Someone from this forum created this thread, which is quite laughable often visiting this region

    People criticize Muslims for treatment of women but...

    That thread above compelled me to post this. The person that post that thread really don't know what is happening in many islamic countries. The hypocrisy is abound.

    It's funny how when you get rich suddenly all the rules start disappearing even in strict middle eastern countries.

    every country on the planet is fukked up. im not caping for iran but lets not sit here and act like theres a single government on the planet that operates in the best interest of its people.

    we live in a system of global white supremacy. as evidenced by those iranians emulating calicacs.

    We all in fukked up countries but dude, you cannot even try compare nations run on religious text to those where people are free thinkers. The human being was designed to have free thought and expression.
    Being in a poorly run country is not the same as being in an country where every aspect of your life is pre determined for you based on outdated relgious doctrine.

    This is true.
    A thought experiment.
    If I walk up to you and your homey and offer you a bag of money.
    Of course you accept it as long as there are no catches.but what if there is one small catch

    You count the money and then your homey decides on the split.
    If you don't like the split you can refuse it all and neither of you get the money

    What would y'all offer or slash accept.
    This is the danger of income inequality
