Clip from an old E-Newspaper in August
Apparently having fun is wrong in Tehran. No joke look it up.

It sounds absurd, but sadly it' s the reality in the Islamic Republic of Iran where, among
other things, having a of fun can also land one in prime.
The young women and men had gathered last week in a Tehran park, ironically named
the Garden of Water and Fire, and splashed water at each other.
The event, planned and organised on Facebook, had reportedly attracted around 800
people. Pictures of the event show happy girls and boys soaked with water, carrying
colorful water guns.
They weren' t chanting opposition slogans or protesting against the government, but
they were having a good time in public, which can be seen to challenge
codes of conduct. Their photos were shared on websites, blogs, and social media.
Many praised them fer their creativity, fer managing to organize the event, and also fer
having fun, which is not always easy in Iran.
Not everyone was happy, though. Conservative websites used the "incriminating"
photos to accuse the you people of morality and cerra pron.

The west should really stop comparing everyone else to their own standards... It's not like theirs is the default human culture.

But I think most cultures can agree that a large water gun fight, while maybe immature, does not make one immoral or corrupt.

I try to be lenient. If their government condemns public displays of entertainment, then naturally they shouldn't be doing that ****. It's unfair but it's always best not to piss off the government.

I'm all about tolerance and accepting difference, but you can in fact judge a culture. If you compare two countries and one shows to be significantly better in almost all fields, it's just a more successful culture. If we were to compare Switzerland to Japan, however- they both are very different cultures, but similarly successful. It's not about conforming to one ideal, it's just that some cultures work and others don't.

When people are put in prison for water gun fights and calling a teddy bear Mohammad, I'm comfortable in saying that Western culture is better.

In this case, Western governments. Remember that Iran is not a democracy.

They were having a water-gun fight.

Apparently that equals revolution.

I guess I was a felon when I was a kid selling lemondade then. I never got a permit and I sold lemonade to the cops.

Technically speaking, it's true. Some girl a few months back got her lemonade stand shut down because she didn't have a permit of some kind. It's rarely enforced, but there's been more and more insane arrests in that ballpark recently. The police state is coming...
