Wisdom of the crowd

One of the impressive aspect of these days is the wisdom that the majority of the reformist crowd show in most of their steps. While dealing with a brutal government that doesn't have any shame, the protesters have been quite careful in keeping their protests cool and to the point. The message is simple: This election is illegitimate. Slogans are directed to Ahmadinejad's goverment which maximizes the unity. And the leadership of Musavi who is under a very tight media censorship is very wise.

I'm thinking about the bitter protests of 1999 and a few other ones that were eventually supresed. Many of us were always condeming those events to the moderate attitude of Khatami and his camp at the time. However all those steps have given us a lesson, how to fight.

Events are unpredictable. But the chess game is at its critical point and every move can finalize the game. But even people lose the election, the history of Islamic Republic and the way things will go forward from this point on, will be different.
