Iran arrests fashion designers; wants to impose uniform on women

From People of Shambhala

I was struck, about a year ago, when I heard an Iranian activist complain that Western media “goes on about” the restrictions on fashion. Perhaps she thought it trivialized the plight of Iranian girls and women. It is a state, after all, in which they are systematicallyraped by guards and police after arrest for such “crimes” as protesting in support of greater democracy — or any democracy at all.

    I just don’t want them in the West.

    Full stop.

Actions like this are to be expected in societies that are refusing to allow individual thought or rights, if the communists had been allowed to remain in power long enough this would have happened in the nations they controlled.
