There are many sides fighting to influence our world view
We need to listen to all of them (free speech)
Including what the mainstream media refuses to cover
The rest of us are entitled to our perspectives:
Shia Muslims, men’s right activists, socialists, etc.
Amphiist is a Greek word meaning looking at both sides

Mainstream media perspective
The current Iranian protests have been driven by young people who are fed up with the clerical elite’s greed over keeping the money obtained from the nuclear deal with President Obama, rather than distributing among the populace. Iran’s Supreme Leader and President Rouhani are both being criticized for their role in funding wars that young Iranians don’t feel are in their national interests. The money going towards fighting unnecessary wars could be used for subsidizing the youth in terms of jobs, education, etc.

The Other Side
What the New York Times didn’t mention in this article is that there is an axis of evil, comprised of the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel, who are the main state actors behind all of the violence in the world today (and have been for many, many years). The mainstream media loves to tell lies about leaders like Bashar al Assad and how he poisons his own people, a blatant falsehood. Why would he? The media loves to also libel Russian President Vladimir Putin, because he is fighting Saudi, America and Israel. It is not anti-Semitic to say that Israel is one of the bad state actors, because the Amphiist has no problem with the average Jew, or average anyone. The thing that the NYT article got right is that the elite DOES take advantage of the masses, and this needs to stop. But it never will until people wake up and realize the extent of the treason that different countries’ leaders have inflicted on the masses.
Iranians are beginning to fight back. They are Shia Muslims. Islam has 73 sects, one of which is Shia. These people believe that the Prophet Mohammed named a successor, Ali ibn Abi Talib, and that his descendants became Imams, whom Muslims should follow. They are the biggest victims of ISIS, who represent extreme Sunni or Wahhabism Islam. The Wahhabis believe Shias have apostasized. The Shia accordingly have been persecuted for centuries. The persecution continues today at the hands of Israel, Saudi and the US.
