I have lived in Iran and I'm moving back again when my wife finishes her studies. I don't enjoy living here as it's laws, morals and view of life are suffocating me as much as Iranian laws are suffocating liberals in northern Tehran.
Ofcourse, take advantage of the education before departure.

What is this weak and pointless argument I keep on hearing again and again? Why talk as if every Muslim has a choice to live in Iran? Obviously most don't .. And our hope is that the Islamic revolution spreads to the rest of the world insha Allah ! And it will insha Allah eventually .. then the enemies of Islam will all be silenced and overcome Allah willing ..
You do have a choice, yet you will not live there. You will have this long distance love knowing you'll never have to be in the position of those suffering in Iran.
This failed talk of wanting revolution to spread is an excuse to live comfortably where you're at knowing it's not going to happen. Keep trashing the system you live in and pay taxes to it, I'm sure that money is used wisely.
Basically, you are living in a place you hate (total denial), and will never live in the place you love (long distance love only).

Consider Iran as your house and all the mischievous social media (strictly in a political & security sense) as the various sorts of bars and clubs in your city. Now would you consider yourself a hypocrite by excluding clubs and pubs from your reality? Isnt that what Iran is doing? How sane would it sound if one argued that since one excludes bars and clubs from their lives should go to countries with no bars and clubs?
Its always honorable when people applied their own rules based on their own customs and not hypocritical. Its also prudent.
Why do people take it to irrelevant extremes, freedom equates to bars/clubs? Is that really the depth of what freedom means?
If I'm not even allowed to voice my disagreements in my own house then it's not a house, it's a prison.
