It’s still run by the supreme council, you can’t do all sorts of shit, but it’s not like there’s a Sunni majority being violently repressed a la Syria. No burqa requirement, women can drive, etc.

I’ve got a few good friends who left around ‘79, they go back regularly. I also knew a fairly famous political prisoner who was eventually released. It’s a fucked up system, but hardly a threat to us or democracy in the region.

Not arguing it’s awesome of course. Shades of grey and all that
