just words – Iranian election

Interesting to note that once you claim to be holding an ‘election’, or that your country is a ‘democracy’, it makes it possible to put you on the hook for things you wouldn’t normally want to be on the hook for.

So, Iran is now making ‘reluctant concessions’ with regard to the farce of election they just held.

I wouldn’t push too hard on this point, but it’s the reason why neo-insitutional folks push back against the myth-versus-real construction. Here, the myth actually makes changes to the real more viable.
