Iran: A Nation of Bloggers

Created by Hendy Sukarya, Aaron Chiesa, Toru Kageyama and Lisa Temes as a student production, this film offers interesting information about the revolution of young people in Iran who have made the repressive Islamic nation the third largest nation of bloggers in the world.  It is very well done and packs a good informational punch.  Young bloggers getting their words out from under the watchful eye of an extremist religious government is admirable.  But a nation that becomes a fanatical religious state run by clerics who kill people for speaking out cannot be trusted even a little.  That goes for its young bloggers too.  I am wholly unconvinced by the urge to ‘freedom’ in Iran.  It requires a fire much stonger than a blog to burn religion out of a government.
